She did it alright. She is by Invincible Spirit and a lot of them win first time out. The ground is very testing but she did a great job. I thought she'd need the run. There are three Listed and Group races from seven furlongs to a mile here in September and October and she might go for one of those. She will need to improve a bit but she will improve a bit but she will if we ever get good ground in this Indian summer. Yesterday wasn't a good day (Sadler's Rock and Hartani both beaten) but today started well and there is always tomorrow! John M Oxx, trainer
