Winning Trainer: James Cummings (Sean Keogh speaking)

Great way to cap the season with a progressive filly: "Real credit to guys on the farm. We started out the season in good form with the Darley stallions that are based here in Victoria with Frosted kicking off early and then we see the two-year-olds at the back end of the year by Brazen Beau doing well."

The progression: "Coming into today that you would imagine that you would see these fillies in the next month or so now, but that will be up to James and the team to decide. After her first two starts she had the experience and the conditioning to put herself in a winning position today and Damien Oliver gave her a fabulous ride."

Winning Jockey: Damien Oliver

What is it about Godolphin that continue to produce 2YO's week in, week out: "I suppose they have a strong resource there and that seems to be there main goal, their two and three-year-olds and they've got good benchmarks. It's nice to measure them up against one another at different stages and get a bit of a feel as to where they fit into the system. It's great to team up with them. They've got a lot of nice horses there and she's one of them."

Can she go on to early 3YO fillies races: "Possibly. I did think she would just win last start and she didn't really have an excuse there, and today, if I did learn anything it was to be a little more patient on her and she won well. It was her third run today and there might be one more left in her. I would suggest either nurse her through to one more or a little breather now and come back later in the spring. I'll see what James thinks."
