Don’t Doubt Mamma was given a lovely run in transit off the speed in the early stages of The Vanity and jockey Dwayne Dunn was able to get the talented filly off the rails at the perfect time, while Perfect Reflection was blocked for a run.

The Not A Single Doubt filly responded quickly when she was asked for an extra effort by Dunn and she held-off a fast finishing Egypt and the unlucky Perfect Reflection to take out The Vanity.

Dunn admitted that Don’t Doubt Mamma was tired on the line in The Vanity, but he was still happy with the performance and believes that she will take plenty of benefit from the run.

“She stoked up really good today and I had a good run in transit,” Dunn said.

“The trainer said to me that I should just be mindful that she is probably not fully wound for the 1400 today and she has a big campaign ahead of her.

“She probably just emptied out on me a little bit late.

“She probably didn’t spell as well as what they liked and I see that the run will definitely bring her on.

“Hopefully she does really well from now on in.”

Tony McEvoy elected to run Don’t Doubt Mamma over 1400 metres first-up this preparation instead of 1000 metres as he did in her past two preparations and the decision paid dividends in The Vanity.

McEvoy said that the Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m) could be on the agenda for Don’t Doubt Mamma, but the Group 3 Frances Tressady Stakes or the Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) are also possible options.

“She was really good,” McEvoy said.

‘We have worked her out a little bit more – she was running in those shorter races and at home she was showing me more speed than she was at the races.

“We elected to go to this and when it came up so strong I was double checking myself, but she really excited me today.

“She is a high quality filly and to come out and beat those fillies today, there is plenty to look forward with her.

“She will do the talking and we will see how she comes through it.

“There is the Francis Tressady for fillies or mares, there is the Guineas or we could go three weeks to the Coolmore in Sydney.

“I just need to sit down with Peter and his partners and work out which way we go.”

Egypt produced the best performance of her career to finish second, while Perfect Reflection and Jameka will both press on to the Australian Guineas.
