Invincible Gem raced away from her rivals to record a dominant victory in the 2017 Spring Stakes at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Invincible Gem was well-backed in the lead-up to the Spring Stakes, but punters that backed the filly would have been worried when she was involved in a five-way speed battle in the early stages of the race.

Jockey Brenton Avdulla eventually settled Invincible Gem in second position behind Captain Duffy and the leader ensured that the race was run at a genuine tempo.

Avdulla waited until the 400 metre mark until he made a move on Invincible Gem and she quickly put paid to her rivals in the Spring Stakes for an outstanding win.

Trainer Kris Lees admitted after the race that he has been surprised with the way that Invincible Gem has progressed this preparation and he believes it will be tough to send the three-year-old to the spelling paddock following her Spring Stakes win.

“She has certainly surprised me the level that she has gone to this preparation,” Avdulla said.

“She has handled thing so well and it is a testament to her stallion – he just upgrades any mare that goes to him.

“She has just got to a whole new level this preparation.

“I said to the owners after her last win that I was looking for a reason to give her a break.

“She just thrived after her last win and you just have to have a throw at the stumps in a Stakes race with her.

“I was surprised that she came up as favourite, but they are better judges than me.”

Avdulla – like Lees – is surprised that Invincible Gem has been able to develop into a genuine black-type filly and he could not have been more impressed with the way that he found the line in the final stages of the Spring Stakes.

“She probably should be going for a break, but it is hard to spell a filly when they are going this good.”

“It was hard to measure up her form because she has obviously come from restricted grade,” Avdulla said.

“I won a race on her at Canterbury one day and I didn’t think that she would be getting to this level.

“Kris has kept raising the bar with her and she has kept improving.

“I was always comfortable a long way from home and when I pushed the button at the top of the straight she booted away from them and won like a nice filly.”

Faraway Town found the line nicely to finish second, while Gauguin was third.
