I would consider that borderline PFR. Very solid, can't see through the shell anywhere. If its still young, it could get darker after breeding a few times and by then it could definitely be PFR

+1 That shell is very opaque. Fire reds you can usually see the saddle.

Then she definitely has potential to be a real nice PFR
