Analysis

Paul Deegan: "She did better over this winter than any before. Jim (Monaghan, winning owner) did a great job with her. She's a lot stronger now. Jim is very patient and he's a great stock man. The plan this year was to win a Group Three. We'll look at the Curragh Cup now and hopefully she'll finish up in the Irish St Leger. She was off the bridle early enough today but Marc gave her a lovely ride and he's a very level-headed lad. A mile and a half to a mile and six is her trip and I'd say this will probably be her last season."
