“I saw her for the first time after she left Ireland and I couldn’t be happier with how she is physically. Her coat is really good, her condition is great. She’s done really well, the girls did a great job, they were really happy with her in quarantine. We just did a routine trot and a hack this morning. She went into the parade ring before going to the track and she was good, she took it all in her strides, so we’ll keep doing that with her. We’ll do a little harder work tomorrow. We’ll step up her work a little bit each day and let her freshen up for the race. Her jockey Shane Foley will be here Wednesday morning and we’ll do a breeze and a nice bit of work that day. I’m very impressed with the Hanshin racecourse, beautiful facilities and the track looks to be in really good condition.”
