Al Husn produces a major shock.

This was the biggest win by far for the daughter of Dubawi, and she was one of the longer priced runners on the board at 9/1.

Her previous form was not at the same level of the favorites here, but she has now won seven of her last eight races and showed her victory over Nashwa in the Grade 3 Hoppings Fillies Stakes was no fluke.

She had earned her bite at the top table and took the invitation with open hooves under a great tactical ride by Jim Crowley.

Above The Curve led, with Al Husn ready to pounce, while Blue Rose Cen had the door slammed shut trying to get to the rail as the cutaway appeared two furlongs from the wire.

Al Husn took over at the two-furlong marker, while Nashwa was closing widest of all.

Four were in with a chance at the furlong marker but Al Husn held the challenge of Above The Curve and late closing rallies from Nashwa, in third, and the unlucky Blue Rose Cen who was beaten just over a length in fourth spot.
