Analysis

Dermot Weld: "She's a brave and genuine filly and it was an excellent ride by Pat. We had agreed those tactics beforehand. She quickened and she battled well. We'll have to think about the Irish 1,000 Guineas, but we'll see how she comes out of this race first. She's exceptionally well bred and a mile and a quarter could well be her optimum trip in time."
