Sent off the 2-5 favourite after finishing fourth in the Group One Cheveley Park Stakes just a week earlier, the daughter of Galileo duly landed the odds with the minimum of fuss.

Ryan Moore had her tucked in behind the leaders before coming through to lead just inside the final furlong.

Appreciating the extra furlong a week on, Alice Springs went on to score by four lengths from compatriot Clear Skies, trained by David Wachman. Ninetta was a length and a half away third.

Moore said: "She won very easily. She's backed up quickly from last week. She was fourth in the Cheveley Park and third in the Moyglare.

"She's a very good filly and won nicely. She's by Galileo, I'm sure she'll get a bit further if needed."

Poet's Prize ran out a cosy winner of the £150,000 Tattersalls October Auction Stakes.

David Barron's colt was never far off the pace set by Cherry Kool and Comedy Night before going all out for success in the final quarter-mile.

Responding well to jockey Graham Gibbons' urgings, Poet's Prize (7-1) asserted in the closing stages to take the £81,165 first prize by half a length from Receding Waves, with favourite Twin Sails the same distance away third.

Winning owner Laurence O'Kane said: "It was a fantastic performance and a great ride by Graham. We've done it again. Last year me and David picked up a big prize in Ireland.

"This horse has been progressing slowly and has been one of those slow burners. He's a proper horse and he will step up. Graham said he was going away from them in the last 100 yards."
