A Newmarket maiden winner in the spring, Qazyna made an encouraging comeback from a midsummer break returned to the Rowley Mile earlier in the month and she comprehensively built on that form upped a furlong in trip here, occupying a prominent position from a handy draw in stall two as the early tempo was predictably sedate.
Most of the eleven-strong field shunned the inside rail rounding the home bend, which allowed Qazyna the perfect seam through, and she did not require a second invitation to go and win her race, essentially securing the spoils under a hands a heels ride and never looking in any danger as the pack closed late.
The margin of victory was half a length at the line and this was a second career win for the imposing three-year-old, who boasts an impressive page as a half-sister to four further black-type performers, including the Listed Wolferton Handicap winner Perfect Stride.
Roger said: “Qazyna has always worked like a talented filly and this was a smooth performance under conditions that suited. She ought to be even better next season and I look forward to seeing how far she can progress.”
