Starting well in the market at $5 the 5YO daughter of More Than Ready swamped the leaders late to win the 1600m Midfield Meats Maiden Plate.
The mare has always been a consistent performer with the win coming after seven previous placings during her 15-start career.
Ridden by Neil Farley, the win also rewarded the combination who have been together for all but two starts during the past twelve months.
Seven starts, for one unplaced run and a fourth, was rewarded with this terrific winning result.
Settling back just beyond midfield from a widish barrier, Farley was able to find a trailing lane with cover, albeit three-wide for a big portion of the race.
Approaching the home turn, runs were coming around him, but Farley held his nerve to follow race favourite Maunarente through the field.
Inside the furlong mark, he peeled off its back to nab the front runners right on the post.
Keeping it simplistic, Daniel was relieved with the win.
“Long overdue, she finally got everything go her way to win one, she’s been knocking on the door for a while.”
With a benchmark rating of 58, the natural progression is to find a suitable race over a similar trip during what is a busy time in the south-west.
Congratulations to all her patient owners!
