Keeping the impressive record of the favourites at Ascot on Saturday going, Todd Harvey’s classy mare Premardal scored another decisive win in the $80,000 Listed Starstruck Classic (1600m).
Following her success in the Jungle Dawn Classic at the track, four-year-old Shamardal mare Premardal was heavily backed into the $2.50 favourite to win the 2010 Strastruck Classic and rewarded the punters with an impressive all-the-way victory.
Jumping from barrier one with Clint Harvey aboard, Premardal was never threatened and in the end hit the line a length clear of Valoura ($6.50) who was gallant in defeat, with nice little roughie Little Grey Teapot ($61) stepping up in class with ease adding value to the winning trifecta coming in another length away for third.
Premardal has won four of her 14 career starts for $204,350 in prize money and will now go on to contest the $75,000 Listed La Trice Classic (1800m) on Wednesday December 22nd.
More great racing action is scheduled at Ascot this Saturday with the highly anticipated $225,000 Group 2 CB Cox Stakes (2100m) the feature event of the December 18th meeting.
The CB Cox Stakes final field will be out today, the race the final major lead-up for the 2011 Perth Cup making it an excellent event to enjoy a punt on at our preferred bookmaker Luxbet!
