Pure Scot has capitalised on a box-seat run to land her first win at her fifth attempt.

Having her eighth start of this preparation which had already netted wins at and , the -trained mare took her career earnings past $400,000 with her victory in Saturday's DeRucci Trophy (1600m).

Pure Scot had raced four times at Flemington in her 20 previous starts, including a fourth placing in the Group Two as a spring three-year-old, without success.

“She's been unlucky a couple of times so I didn't think it was Flemington,” co-trainer said.

“She's normally a good closer in her races so Flemington should suit her, and now we can say it does.

“I think that was probably her best run for the preparation and she's a mare that's won over $400,000 now so she's been a terrific mare for the connections.”

After settling in the box seat under , Pure Scot peeled into the clear on the outside of the two leaders in the home straight before hitting the front inside the final 200m.

Pure Scot ($12) defeated Hussy's Glow ($26) by 1-1/4-lengths with another half length to Jester Halo ($12) third.
