Jwala

The least-fancied of three runners for trainer Robert Cowell, the 40-1 shot was smartly away in the hands of Steve Drowne and was disputing the running from the start of the five-furlong contest.

South African star Shea Shea, who was sent off the favourite, and Ireland's Sole Power were both thrusting at the finish, but Jwala held on by half a length and a nose.

Jwala won a Listed event over the course and distance on her penultimate start last month, but then finished last of 17 behind a number of reopposing rivals at Glorious Goodwood following a tardy start.

Drowne said: "She had a tough time last time. She got upset and knocked herself silly. She didn't go a yard and tailed off at Goodwood. Thank goodness they found a reason - she'd nearly fractured an eye socket - and she's bounced back here. She travels very well during the race, almost too well, but she kept on going."

Cowell said: "That's really exciting, I'm thrilled. She's a grand filly and only finished a length behind Sole Power last year as a three-year-old at Doncaster in a Listed race.

"She's come on leaps and bounds, she's ultra tough and she's got a really high cruising speed. At Goodwood last time she fractured her eye socket, which only came to light later on, but she's come back. I'm speechless."
