Lees  had early in the day visited the winners stall in back to back races with Le Romain in the Group 3 $150,000 The Chi-X Southern Cross Stakes (1200m) and with Invincible Gem in the Group 3 $150,000 Trainer Connections Spring Stakes (1600m).

“It is important for these mares to race well in these type of races. They are well bred mares and they need to be perform in Stakes races,” Lees said.

“It is very satisfying.”

“I always said that she had a lot of upside in her and she is going the right way.”

“She really appreciates a gap in between her runs, she just needed a bit of luck in running and I knew she was going to be strong late today.”

“It looked a bit ugly there for a while. He (Jason Collett) found the right path and got there when it mattered.”

The win of Zestful ($4.20) didn’t look like eventuating when jockey Jason Collett was searching everywhere for a run in the straight but the gap finally opened up.

The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Nancy ($9) looked likely to grind out a tough win under the hard riding from Hugh Bowman and was holding eventual third placegetter Dixie Blossoms ($4 favourite) at bay before Zestful got into the clear and dashed through the inside to score a head win.

Jockey James Doyle appears to have escaped serious injury following a nasty fall that saw his mount Pearls ($7) fall at about the 900m mark.
