Over Here started as the $2.30 favourite for trainer Peter Ruetschi and was never headed in a dominant win by 5.25 lengths.
Exiting from box six, the daughter of Don’t Knocka Him and Where Are You began brilliantly from out wide and clocked a speedy overall time of 29.99. The 26kg chaser was the fastest qualifier from last week’s heats in a sizzling 29.84 and took her Albion Park record to an impeccable four wins from seven starts.
Pocahontas started at big odds of $25.50 and was gallant in defeat when running second for Patricia Carrington, with rank outsider Abby’s Magic, trained by Bill Elson, finishing half-a-length away in third position.
Second favourite Kingsbrae Lavina unfortunately fell in the home straight, however she picked herself back up and ran into the catching pen.
