The Stewards requested a report from Mrs Denise Foster, trainer, as to the apparent improvement in form of Lily's Rainbow, placed first, as compared with its recent form. Mrs Denise Foster reported that her charge Lily's Rainbow had got stronger over the winter and had also become more relaxed in her attitude to training and consequently this allowed for the filly to be ridden more prominently today which was a change from the set riding method of being held up and produced with one run in her previous races.
