Robert Tyner’s five-year-old mare was having her sixth run in a bumper and took today’s contest by a length and a half at 4/1.
She hit the front five furlongs out and wasn’t for stopping despite the best efforts of 9/10 favourite Lord Of Tara, who had to settle for second place.
She gave Robert Tyner a double after Instant Impacked’s win in the previous race. He said: “She’s a huge mare. She’s 17 2. It was her last chance in a bumper. She’ll run next in a maiden hurdle here on December 9th.
