Arctic Angel took up the running in the early stages of the Sweet Embrace Stakes and the race looked as though it would be all over when she kicked clear at the top of the straight.

One More Honey got to the middle of the track and she looked as though she would run on for a credible second, but Arctic Angel tired badly in the last 100 metres and One More Honey was able to finish over the top of her rival to claim victory.

John Thompson is yet to confirm his plans with One More Honey but she has been included in the nominations for the Group 1 Golden Slipper (1200m) at Rosehill Gardens on March 18 as well as the Group 1 Sires Produce Stakes (1400m) and Group 2 Percy Sykes Stakes (1200m) at Royal Randwick during The Championships.

One More Honey made her racing debut with a narrow victory at big odds in the Newgate Sizzling Juvenile Maiden (1000m) at Royal Randwick on Boxing Day and was fifth behind Teaspoon in the Group 3 Widden Stakes (1100m) at Rosehill Gardens on January 28.

Arctic Angel showed plenty of speed once again and will be very well-suited in races over 1000 metres or 1100 metres, while Teaspoon produced another credible effort to find the line late ford third.
