Top Of My List led from start to finish to deliver Anthony Cummings and Edward Cummings their first Stakes winner as a partnership at Royal Randwick this afternoon.

Top Of My List took up the running in the early stages of the JRA Plate and jockey Tim Clark rated the High Chaparral mare to perfection before she kicked away at the top of the straight.

Astronomos loomed dangerously on the outside, but was out-sprinted and Top Of My List proved far too strong in the concluding stages of the JRA Plate.

Co-trainer Edward Cummings was clearly delighted to have picked-up his first Stakes win as trainer, but he was quick to pay credit to the brilliant front-running ride of Clark.

“Timmy did a fantastic job,” Cummings said.

“We talked about it before the race, she is the kind of mare that prefers to find her own rhythm in her own way away from the rest of the field and Timmy did a great job.

“She bounced out well, she got across and he just timed it perfectly in front.

“We knew that she could really be strong late and she really lived up to our expectation.

“It is a really special feeling to have my first Stakes winner for one of the owners that recommended me as a trainer.

“I am hugely grateful and excited for what the future holds for her.”

Clark admitted that Top Of My List took a little while to find her rhythm in the early stages of the JRA Plate, but was eventually able to settle and he was most impressed with the way that she let down at the top of the straight.

“She looked like she was going to be able to get a nice lead,” Clark said.

“I didn’t want to rush her and she was a bit free coming around, but I let her find the front under her own steam and by the time we hit the 1000 she really came back underneath me.

“She gave herself a really good rest and when she heard the rest of them come up to her at the turn she really dragged herself up the rise and kicked strongly.

“She was full of running to the line.”

Sons of John relished the step-up to 2000 metres to finish second, while Rudy was able to get in front of Astronomos late for third.
