Continuing the good run of the Cairon Maher and David Eustace which started at Warrnambool with five winners for that carnival the five-year-old mare Snapdancer led all the way.

Paul Gatt added to his illustrious riding career when he guided Not Usual Glorious  to a win in the 1600 metre opening event at Morphettville on Saturday.

Being under the care of Travis Doudle, Not Usual Glorious settled well before going to the lead and proved a worthy winner.

Resuming from a spell and bringing up his second win at start two the Craig Williams guided Mask Up  took out the 1200 metre second race.

Continuing the good run of trainer Simon Wilde from Warrnambool Mask Up came from a better than midfield position with a strong run over the concluding stages.

The two-year-old filly Aitch Two Oh continued the outstanding run of co-trainers Richard and Chantelle Jolly when she took out the listed Without Fear Stakes which was run over 1050 metres. 

Guided to victory by Jake Toeroek, Aitch Two Oh  was one of the first to begin and maintained a forward position before going on to score her third win from four starts.

Craig Williams brought up the second leg of an early double when Splendiferous took out the Listed Port Adelaide Cup which was run over 2500 metres.

A resident of the Flemington stable of Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott Splendiferous settled well before getting to the front at the 600 metre mark and going on to win.

Seradess gave Craig Williams his third winner for the meeting and a running double when the three-year-old filly took out the Group 2 Tobin Bronze Stakes which was run over 1200 metres.

Prepared at Flemington by Mark and Levi Kavanagh Seradess brought up her fourth win from nine starts when she led all the way.

The Angaston stable of Tony and Calvin McEvoy featured in a Group 2 win when Silent Sovereign won the 1600 metre Queen of the South Stakes.

Having the services of John Allen Silent Sovereign, who was coming off a last start third at Oakbank, came from a rearward position with a strong run over the concluding stages.

Trainer Chris Beig laned one of the most important wins in his career when Free of Debt took out the Group 3 D C McKay Stakes which was run over 1100 metres.

Resuming from a spell the Dom Tourneur ridden Free of Debt began well, drifted back to a midfield position before coming with a late run in the straight to win. 

Free of Debt will now progress to the Group 1 Goodwood Handicap which will be run over 1200 metres on May 21.

Jockey Paul Gatt ended the day with a book-end double when I Am Bene took out the 1050 metre final event.

Resuming from a spell and trained at Strathalbyn by Andrew Clarken I Am Bene came from a better than midfield position to win.
