Craig Williams & have combined to claim the two-year-old feature at Morphettville on Saturday afternoon, as (+360) burst clear to claim victory in the Group 3 David Coles AM Stakes (1200m).

The daughter of showed a blistering turn-of-foot in the concluding stages after getting a terrific ride in transit by hoop, timing his run to perfection on the back of the leader.

It was the -trained The Dabble Effect (+1100) attempting to make every post a winner, with launching across from barrier five, ticking over some solid sectionals to maintain her early margin.

The drifting second-favourite Symphony Of Colour (+290) tried to kick up the inside to hold out The Dabble Effect, but it never eventuated, as she couldn't muster the early toe settling for cover in behind the speed.

(+250) was forced to make a mid-race move under Jake Toeroek, and it almost paid off as the Jolly-trained two-year-old hit the front with 200m left to travel.

There was only one challenger left late, and as Flyer got the split, she shouldn't sensational acceleration to score an impressive half-length victory.

Jason Warren was on course at Morphettville to praise his filly, although it wasn't as easy as he would've liked.

“It wasn't exactly painless,” said Warren.

“It was held up getting to the corner there and we were very patiently waiting for a run. Tough effort late, she really surged to the horse that was well in front of her outside her and a tough effort to come back on the inside.

“We've pretty much put her to the sword this prep and she's kept soldiering on, we sort of put her in the deep end at her second start she's in a .

“We got over here to try and get some crucial black type for her being a filly and she's shown up today and won a good little race.”

Craig Williams wasn't as concerned throughout the run, suggesting she had come on well since her last start effort a fortnight ago.

“I was happy in run,” said Williams.

“Thanks to Jason and his team, the people looking after the horse while she's over here, to get her here two weeks later, she'd come on and we could see it today in her performance. Now she's a black type winning filly, it's great for .

“She was good to the further we got into the race, fortunately for me I had the horse to be able to pick up and she was quite solid late.”
