The 4yo chestnut daughter of Hurricane Run had three runs to her name before today and was sent off the 11/4 second favourite this afternoon.
The duo had a good battle up the home straight but Casablanca Lily kept on best under pressure in the final furlong and held on well to score by half a length at the line.
Jane Mangan said afterwards: "She is very tough and gallops all day. She got through the ground and I wanted to set a strong pace to make sure it would be a test of stamina."
Mangan who turns nineteen on Tuesday, also recorded a double at this meeting last year.
Coincidentally she won the same race last year, aboard Luke’s Benefit and Carries Darling, as she did this year.
