Analysis

Brian Meehan: "I'm really pleased as she has proved to be the filly we thought she was. It's not a shock, not by any means."We came here thinking she had to be in the first three on what we knew of her from last season. She was brave as she had to come through horses and Jimmy got off and said he felt she won very easily, she just pricked her ears when she hit the front and just needed one slap to keep her mind on the job. We thought she was special last year and she looked good today. She's in the French and English Guineas and I'll have to speak to the owner and Jimmy. We'll have a proper conversation, put it all together and decide."
