Steve Parkin's Invincible Spirit mare has struck twice before in Listed company but this was her breakthough victory in the grade.

She broke quickly from the stalls and jockey Jamie Spencer went into an early lead. She showed her customary early speed and was two lenghts clear at the half way point.

Spencer kicked with two furlongs to go and Beyond Desire maintained her advantage. She began to tire inside the final furlong but just had enough in the tank to beat Monsieur Joe by a short head.

Roger said: "She seems a better filly this year and it is great to see her win a Group 3. She has always had a lot of speed so this sharp five furlongs suits her well."
