Sunlight Horseform  loves Flemington, proved to be the best sprinter of her age here last November in the Coolmore Stud Stakes (registered as Ascot Vale Stakes) (Gr 1, 1200m) and stepped up with a decisive win against all-comers.

She was one of the first away and shared the lead early and at the crossing. Jockey Barend Vorster looked over his shoulder hoping for cover but they were left in front at the 500m.

She was headed briefly at the 300m but kicked to take the lead back at the 150m and had too much pace to the line, scoring comfortably by a length and a super win, her ninth in 14 starts, taking her earnings beyond $3.8 million.

Osborne Bulls Horseform  was buried among the last three at the crossing, started to tack on to the bunch at the 350m, saw daylight at the 200m then flew home to grab second a stride off the line.

Brave Smash Horseform  was wide and back at the crossing, sprinted hard from the 350m to be third at the 100m and kept going strongly to hold third. Graff Horseform  joined in at the 300m, led briefly and kept going gamely to hold fourth.
