Sword Miss is currently the second favourite for the 2022 Preis der Diana after winning her only start to date at Baden Baden in October. Sword Miss looked very green and for a time was struggling to stay with her rivals until suddenly taking hold of the bit in the straight and racing past her more experienced rivals to win easily.
