Sheikh Hamdan's daughter of Invincible Spirit is a full sister to Ektihaam. She didn't race at two but has been placed on both her starts this season.

She made every yard of the running under Paul Hanagan. He set a steady pace up front and her rivals were queuing up to take her on at two furlong marker.

When joined by Miss Brazil and then Elizona, Laftah stuck on gamely to win convincingly by three-quarters of a length.

Roger said: "I don't think she was loving the firm ground but she was game and has done it well."
