Three-time Group 1-winning mare Alizee staged a good firstup effort in winning here.

She was ridden quietly by Hugh Bowman and settled in last place in the five-horse field, going a bit keenly behind a very steady early tempo before improving (deep) from the 600m.

She made a quick move to take the lead on turning for home and then held on over the closing stages to score by a neck, with something in hand.

Invincible Gem raced in fourth place, went to second at the 200m and ran on really well over the latter stages for a very good first-up second.

Le Romain was third early on, was shuffled back in the small field to be last (out deep) at the home turn.

He then steadily made ground in the sprint home to take third in a sound first-up run.

The $101 outsider Dissolute was ridden hard to the early stages to find the lead.

He then steadied the pace, was overtaken at the home turn and then held on quite well for (4.9 lengths) fourth with Vegadaze (6.5 lengths) last after racing a bit keenly outside of the leader to the home turn at his first run back.
