Winning jockey Mike Smith said, "I liked where I was all the way around. We were last early, but she was under a long hold and running easy. She's one of those fillies with such a wicked turn of foot that you have to be careful. If you niggle on her a little bit, she goes from last to first right now. You've got to trust her. Taking the overland was no problem. No problem at all with her."
