From an inside draw, Anthony Darmanin gave her a lovely run trailing the leader before peeling out to the middle of the straight for the full effort in the run to the post.

Brimondo ($34 to $14) got home by a head from Iowna ($7 into $3.20) but drifted out in the last 100m and the two horses bumped.

A protest from the runner-up's rider Anthony Darmanin was quickly upheld.

Iowna is trained at Longford by Alana Fulton and was bred by co-owner Nancy Stubbs whose late husband Allan trained the mare's dam Aristocrat Lady, a Caulfield winner.
