Analysis

Tom Queally: "She did it well, I had a moment's worry at halfway on the ground but she has enough class and is going the right way. I'm glad she won the way she did as I didn't want to throw the kitchen sink at her on this ground. There's scope to keep on improving. It's great to come home and ride a winner. It would be bold of me to say either way, but I think she's heading in that direction [a Group One]."
