“Great effort from the team.

“She trialed very good on Monday.

“She’s always had that little bit of ability”

“She goes well fresh.”

Jockey Jimmy Cassidy wasn’t surprised that Thump proved victorious is today’s 2013 Silver Shadow Stakes.

“(It was a) good tough effort,” Cassidy said.

“She’s always shown the ability.”
