Artful delivers maiden win

Having raced in some very smart company at two, Art Major filly Artful appreciated a big drop back in class at Alexandra Park this afternoon, delivering her maiden win at start five of her career.

Once the second favourite Neon Sky held the lead early from its inside barrier, the race tipped in the favour of Artful which was able to hold the back of that runner from her second row draw. Coming to the turn it was merely a case of the leader taking her strongly to the passing lane. While held up a little, she really knuckled down over the last 100m to pick up Ideal Eagle which had driven to the lead out wide.

Owned by Bennett Bloodstock Ltd, Artful is sure to derive a lot of benefit and confidence from the win. Robert will look for a suitable target for her over the next couple of week's.
