Winning Trainer: Archie Alexander

"She does it to us every prep. I think at about the 200 (metre mark) I walked away and I thought 'not today, she's going to beat three or four home and not a bad first-up run' and then we'd move on.

"She just started to creep there and probably in the last hundred I thought she is a bit weird she might just sprout wings.

"She knows exactly where the line is so very good return and well done to Dec, he knows her very well. Well done to all the team at home. It is a big effort to get her back each time.

"We've never had a horse with a turn-of-foot like that. Just gets you out of trouble all the time. Definitely on track for another good prep and I think we'll go to the Ladies Day Vase, which is what we did last year, and then into the Empire Rose.

"But she's so good fresh that we might have to rethink it. Anyway, the job is done today."

Winning Jockey: Declan Bates

"I'd say she's a thrill to watch and she's certainly a thrill to ride. She just produces it on the day. All's well that ends well.

"She really does appreciate being out in clear air when you ask her to go. The barrier was a little bit of a concern and I had to bide my time.

"A lot of the time the way you ride her, she has to be good. All the time she is.

"She actually jumped cleanly enough and you don't want to drag them back when they do that. I just sat neutral and let her find her feet. I got shuffled back a little as it was. Following Newhart in the run I got onto the back of Ironclad and I thought he'd get me a clear run and then I could kick.

"But with Goldfields outside me, he gave a good enough kick and it just meant at the top of the straight I had to take back and come off the back of his heels which I the first few were away and gone but she has such a good turn-of-foot and she can reel them in."
