Seamie Heffernan: "She showed a lot as a younger filly at home, but Aidan did not want to run her until she was ready. She surprised me at Fairyhouse and the penny dropped the way she quickened. I was riding her to run a nice race today, I wanted to teach her a bit and see if she was up to running in these kind of races. I thought the Fairyhouse win was because she handled the soft ground, but the ground was totally opposite here today. She has a bit of class, she's strong and versatile."
