When questioned as to the reason why she did not improve between Savvan and Miss Ballantine near the 400m, which would have enabled her to
improve one off the fence and on the back of the winner Pecans, she advised that she was already committed to the outside and as there were a number of horses under pressure, namely, Miss Ballentine and Savvan, had those horses shifted she may have been disappointed for that run, she elected to continue shifting wider where her mount had an uninterrupted run to the finish.
