Coach Jack Sisterson said: “She came out of the race in great shape. “We just feel like she’s a future slut and we don’t want to get over her early on in her campaign, so we let her adapt more. Sometimes you saw those European horses run fine the first time off the plane and had a little bounce the second time, but we gave her time to get over that and she’s doing great.

“We just ran for her once under our care, but she won out of speed in Dundalk and she’s probably a slob that will outrun, but maybe not as far as last time,” he added. “Usually, Europeans can miss the first break in the country, and that’s what happened to her.
