Ken Condon’s Miss Amulet, having her sixth race, made her experience count to keep the challenge of Sacred comfortably at bay in the final furlong.

She took up the running from big outsider Wings Of A Dove two furlongs out – and although Sacred appeared briefly set to justify her favouritism, Miss Amulet responded gamely for James Doyle to prevail by a length.

The Naas Listed winner therefore proved well up to this Group Two standard – while Umm Kulthum stayed on from off the pace to fill third place, three and a quarter lengths further back.

Condon said: “It was a game display and just listening to James on TV he said she was a bit isolated and the speed was away from her.

“I love her attitude and she’s clearly still improving – I don’t know where she’ll stop.

“She took all the travelling well, which is a bonus, and she’s really progressive.”

He added: “We’ll be looking at the Cheveley Park now, why not – let’s see where she ends up, when these fillies are improving you never know.

“I’ve had runners in this race before so it’s great to win it, it carries huge prestige.

“We have a lovely team of two-year-olds this season and the wonderful part of it all is none of them cost a great deal. This filly cost less than £8,000, so it’s a great story.”
