Comment from trainer Sean Tarry:
Her run on Summer Cup Day was exceptional. It seems the leap of faith to run in soft going over the tough Turffontein 1400m was a bridge too far. We will revert back to sprinting, and I remain upbeat and hope for her to be another one who could win a feature for Hollywood
