Analysis

David Fenton: "I'm delighted with that. Coming back over hurdles, you never know, but I thought if things went right she would win. She's won on heavy ground and good, and is very tough and genuine. I'm not really sure of plans after today as she could go back over fences or go for another hurdle."
