Trainer Lyons will only run Lightening Pearl in Qipco 1,000 if the track is satisfying 
Lightening Pearl, daughter of Marju, out of mare Jioconda, will be making her seasonal debut on 6th May, 2012, in the Qipco 1,000 Guineas at Newmarket.

The three-year-old filly is in stellar form, but trainer G.M. Lyons is hoping that the condition of the track is in favour for her comeback.
The trainer stated that: "If the meeting starts on good ground it won't be a problem. I just wouldn't want any extremes," he further elaborated as he stated that:
"At the minute unless something drastic happens she's travelling on Friday. We'll do what we normally do, which is to walk the course, and if we're not happy with the ground we'll pull up stumps and come home. If we're happy we'll run.”
The filly who is owned by Pearl Bloodstock Ltd, won three of her five starts since her career began on 15th June, 2011. She secured a third place and finished as a runner-up in the remaining two races.
On 28th August, 2011, she demonstrated her capabilities, as she triumphed in the Go And Go Round Tower Stakes (Group 3) at Curragh, where she raced as a favourite with a winning shot of 6 to 4.

With her brisk pace, she managed to take the race and defeated the David Wachman trained, Experience, by a wide margin of 5 lengths.
Whelped on 15th February, 2009, the bay filly emerged victorious from the Jaguar Cars Cheveley Park Stakes (Group 1) (Fillies) at Newmarket on 24thSeptember, 2011, where she bagged the narrow victory of ½ a length
and defeated, Sunday Times, who is under the training of Peter Chapple-Hyam.
The trainer stated that in September, 2011 that the horse will race in Qipco 1,000, and so far the game plan has been followed. The horse will walk on the field just to test her form but she seems to be in good shape.
Lyons stated that Lightening Pearl will walk on the track before the race but if the surface of the track is too soft or too heavy then the runner is likely to be scratched.
