Afterwards winning jockey Chris Hayes said: "I rode her last year when Oisin (Orr) was out injured in a bit of work before the Killavullan (at Leopardstown) and I thought she was as good a two-year-old as I had ridden last year. I thought she would win the Killavullan (sixth), but maybe she was a little bit weak.
"I was delighted to get the call to ride her this year and I'm grateful to Mr Weld and all the team at Rosewell who do a fantastic job."
