Imposing Lass has justified her clear favouritism at Gosford Racecourse this afternoon; producing a smart turn of foot to comfortably win the Group 3 Belle Of The Turf Stakes (1600m).

Imposing Lass continued to firm noticeably in the hours leading up to jump and immediately did her chances of justifying the trend no harm when jumping well and taking an ideal position in transit on the heels of early race leaders All In The Reflexs and All Cerise.

Offered a clear racing line upon arriving at the final straight, the Makfi filly immediately responded when asked for an extra effort by jockey Jason Collett; putting away her rivals with ease to find the line more than a length ahead of Queen Of Wands.

Queen Of Wands has steadily built to the task this time in, but was rated a long shot to win the Belle Of The Turf Stakes; drifting to a quote of $21 at jump.

The Not A Single Doubt mare resumed for eighth in the Segenhoe Cup (1200m) at Randwick on December 17th, but clearly relished a step up in distance when she ran on late for fourth in the TAB.com.au BM78 (1600m) on January 2nd.

Christian Reith elected to settle Queen Of Wands off pace in the early stages of the Belle Of The Turf Stakes before peeling the mare off the fence at the turn.

Allowing the four-year-old plenty of time to settle before going for the whip, the hoop was greeted with a strong turn of foot as Queen Of Wands flew home down the outside to claim the positive result.

Another double-figure odds chance; Sewreel, boxed on well in the final stages of the Gosford straight to finish third.

Sewreel sat outside Imposing Lass for a good portion of the Belle Of The Turf Stakes and maintained well to the line in what was her first Australian appearance, having recently arrived from New Zealand.

In being crowned the 2017 Belle Of The Turf Stakes winner, Imposing Lass has extended her record to five wins and three minors through only nine career starts.
