She is a 2007, Tall Chestnut filly the offspring of Danroad and Princesse Sonia.

She is trained by Marco Botti. She made an auspicious racing debut in February when sent off at 40 to 1 over a mile on the all-weather surface at Lingfield race course. Racing Post wrote as follows: “Nan Nell, who cost just 1,000 pounds and is out of a winner at up to 1m4f, ran a remarkable debut. Having broken from the gates, she then seemed reluctant to race and took an age to break into a gallop, thereby gifting her rivals a huge advantage. She then pulled hard when back in tough with the others but then met trouble rounding the home bend, which knocked her back to last. Despite that, she was noted finishing strongly down the centre of the track and is well worth keeping an eye on.” She split the field and was beaten by less than 4 lengths.
