Analysis

Terence O'Brien: "It was a great pot. Off her mark she was always going to be carrying bottom weight. It was great to get black type for her and that was probably going to be her best opportunity to get it. She's been a fantastic mare over fences. This time last year she was still a maiden and she's really gone from strength to strength. She's very genuine and has a lovely attitude. She's also a big scopey mare."
