Danish Twist ($4.80 favourite) made it a hat trick of wins when Tim Clark brought her down the middle of the track to score a clear cut one and a half lengths win at the finish.

Onemorezeta ($12) finished on strongly to make it a winning quinella for trainer Kris Lees with Press Report ($14) battling on in the straight to run third after racing on the pace.

Lees will keep Danish Twist in work and head to Queensland for the last Group 1 of the racing season, the $500,000 Sky Racing Tattersall’s Club Tiara (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 25.

“I think you have to look at a Winter Stakes (Tatts Tiara). It is still a while away, while she is in form we will be doing something with her,” Lees said.

Lees said he would freshen up Danish Twist with some light work before heading off to Queensland.

“She really responds on the water walker and a week in the yard and we will do that with her again,” Lees said.

Tim Clark had Danish Twist travelling just off the pace without cover and even though it appeared that the mare wasn’t settling all that well, Lees wasn’t worried.

“She is a different horse when she doesn’t have that cover,” Lees said.

“She is probably not going as fiercely as she looks to be but she has an awkward action of getting her head up but she still finishes her races off well. And when mares are in form like that they are pretty hard to stop.”

“She has done a really good job. I think she has only been out of a place once in her career, she is a pleasure to train.”

  29. Itamar Serp

    I believe what you posted was very reasonable. However, what
    about this? suppose you composed a catchier title?
    I mean, I don’t wish to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added something to possibly
    get people’s attention? I mean Dark Jewel Classic winner Danish Twist will
    head to the Tatts Tiara – HorseRacing.com.au is a little plain. You
    should glance at Yahoo’s home page and see how they create article titles to get
    people to open the links. You might try adding a video or
    a related pic or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
