Owned by Sheikh Mohammed Obaid, the daughter of Nathaniel notched a brace of novice successes at Newcastle and Kempton earlier in the year, while she found the steady pace and firm ground counting against her on handicap debut at Newmarket last month.
Returning to the track racing off an unchanged mark of 91 and encountering a significantly softer surface, Elasia travelled kindly in the hands of Andrea Atzeni before being asked to go and win her race approaching the final quarter mile.
The John Mackie-trained Fire Jet launched a sustained challenge approaching the business end of proceedings, nosing her way into the lead outside of the furlong marker, but Elasia found more when meeting the rising ground, eventually netting this £50,000 added prize by a neck to continue her upwardly-mobile profile in good style.
A 200,000 guineas purchase from Book 2 of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sale, Elasia is out of a Listed-placed half-sister to Goodwood Cup winner Pallasator, making her a half-sister to Listed Ballymacoll Stud Stakes winner Elas Ruby, and she looks capable of further progress as a four-year-old next season.
Roger said: “Elasia is a dour filly who stays well and she continues to go the right way. She will have no trouble staying two miles and her attitude will always stand her in good stead.”
