The Chris Waller-trained daughter of Foxwedge looked in trouble in the Phar Lap Stakes (1500m) where she was a long way off the leader at the 400m mark and was still caught up in traffic.
But with that tenacious will to win, the three-year-old filly dug deep over the concluding stages and came home with a wet sail to edge out Zenalicious.
The Viner Stud Stakes is one of the few Group 1 races in Sydney that Waller is yet to win, and as well as Foxplay, Waller has also nominated Dawn Hall who has won her past three in succession.
Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott have nominated Cassadee who has led all the way to win her last two starts including a most recent win over 2040m at Moonee Valley.
Other last start winners include: Montoya’s Secret, She’s Magical and maiden winner Think Like A Bird.
