We followed up that win with Island Flame, Robert Winston in the saddle this time. The three-year-old was held up towards the back of the field and looked to have a lot to do. She started to make ground two furlongs from home and battled for the lead inside the final furlong. She stayed on to win by a length-and-a-quarter for owners Northumbria Leisure Ltd.
