“It was a good effort and I’ve always rated her, she’s by a good Waikato Stud stallion,” trainer Kevin Gray said.

“I’ve got a lot of time for this mare and Howard Forbes has been a very good owner of mine.”

Courtesy of a canny ride by Tony Allan, Rock ‘n’ Affair settled in the trail from a wide gate.

When Allan popped her out in the straight she finished determinedly for an impressive win.
