The sole filly in the race and backing up from last Saturday’s Oaks, Qafila was too good and had this well under control at the 300m and won easily, her third career win - all at stakes level.

She went to the front from the jump and led with a circuit to run, dropped into second at the 1800m and third at the 1600m. At the 800m she moved up along the rail and at the 600m ranged alongside the leader then took over before straightening.

Away by a length and a half at the 300m, she never looked in danger and was clear by three and a half lengths at the line.

Savvy Oak was fifth from the 1000m, third and ready to challenge turning in and second at the top of the straight but he couldn’t match the filly for a distant second.

Mr Quickie finished well from the back of the field for third, while Chapada had every chance and battled away for fourth.
