Analysis

Ahmed Ajtebi: "I came here for two or three weeks at the start of the season and then I went back to Dubai. I came back about 12 days ago and Godolphin have given me some good rides so I hope I can keep going. She had only run once at Newcastle but she won by 10 lengths. She was keen going to the start but she picked up very well in the race."

Godolphin representative Andrea Mascolo: "She will be with Charlie and I'm pleased for Ahmed - he's a nice guy. The filly was keen, we might fit a ring-bit next time, but Ahmed said she still had something left at the end."
