Winning Trainer: Mick Kent

"She's going well, isn't she. I thought he rode her particularly well. Didn't want to get stuck on the fence, thought the fence was getting a bit chopped up.

"We knew how fit she was and though if they'd let us lead we'd be happy to take it up and make it a good solid test.

"We're looking at Adelaide. We thought that if she did well then that'd be something we looked at for sure. There's mile Group 2 but there's also that 2000 metre race listed race which gives us a bit of scope."

2000 metres suits: "She keeps galloping. Her mother was a mile-and-a-quarter horse and her figures always tell me that she wants a trip. As long as she doesn't get held up and they go too slow, if she can keep galloping then ten furlongs is well within her realm."

Winning Jockey: Ethan Brown

Thought the race set up well: "I was happy to take up the lead. If they went harder I was happy to take the sit but ran it to suit ourselves. She's a horse that can't really quicken but she keeps galloping so I upped the tempo from the 600 (metre mark) and she was really strong to the line."
