Analysis

Jimmy Chua: "I live locally and I've always wanted to see one of my horses win here. She's a very nervous filly and can get upset in the stalls but Jamie rode her perfectly. She is a Hamilton specialist, but Epsom isn't a completely different type of course and we were quietly confident. She's entered in the Ayr Gold Cup and I'd love her to go there."
