Her managing owner paid $10,175 for Adelong as an unraced three-year-old in an online auction in April.

She was a $4 chance in Thursday's 1100m-benchmark 70 and jumped straight to the front, in the run home to beat Unguarded ($9.50) by four lengths.

“She's taken plenty of work to get her here but you'd have to say it's been pretty good buying,” Widdup said.

“I'm not sure what I'll do now. I don't want to go to the well once too .

“She's given us plenty to think about. She's definitely up to Saturday class but she could even be better than that.”

Adelong was ridden by Widdup's brother-in-law , who was fulsome in his praise of the four-year-old.

“I've liked her from day one,” Reith said.

“I was always a bit concerned she might be a bit of a speedy squib, but she's dispelling that.

“She's tough. There's more depth to her I think because this is all happening in her first preparation.”
