Analysis

George Kent: "This is my first winner under my own licence and it's nice to get it here. It's been lucky for us here. We won the Group Three on this card with Custom Cut two years ago. This filly likes the straight mile, things fell right and Connor gave her a lovely ride. He didn't disappoint her and kept things simple. She loves that ground, being American-bred."
