Analysis

James Bethell: "She actually went to stud and we couldn't get her in foal. She won well at Carlisle and I thought that going back from a mile and one to a mile would suit as she had the race well won at a mile there. We'll keep her going now and she is likely to turn out again in a fortnight. She takes her racing quite well. We'll just see what the handicapper does to her now."
