She provided a touch of magic in winning the G2 Balanchine at Meydan on Thursday.

The Cape Verdi winner added this race to her CV with a strong finish down the straight where she overtook the second and third finishers, namely Nisreen and 40/1 shot Maamara from Simon Crisford's yard.  Surrounding ran a much better race this time finishing fourth whereas Divine Image is not yet there.

The Firebreak was an easy win for Capezzano after Muntazah was scratched.  He will now go to the Saudi Cup and then back to Dubai.  Secret Ambition was 7 lengths away in second and Matterhorn finished just ahead of our roughie Ambassadorial.
