The Tony and Calvin McEvoy-trained Jyoti (2 f ex She Can Skate by Bradbury's Luck) won Wednesday's Gold Sovereign (Listed, 1220m) at Launceston to provide the now Swettenham Stud-based sire Akeed Mofeed (Dubawi) with his second stakes winner. 

Ridden by Jamie Kah, Jyoti scored by a neck from Gee Gee Josie (Wordsmith) with the same distance back to the Lindsay Park-trained Avenue Of Pleasure (I Am Invincible) in third.

She was covered by No Nay Never (Scat Daddy) last November having foaled a filly by Caravaggio (Scat Daddy).
