Race favourite Banjaxed Girl and challenger Santera were battling it out for the honours, but the Henderson charge progressed well and had the stamina when it counted, heading them both after the last to score a one length victory over runner up Banjaxed Girl, with Santera a further one and a half lengths behind in third place.

"It was very kind of Paul Murphy to keep her in training rather than whipping her off to stud and she will have another go at the David Nicholson, whatever happens," said Henderson.

"She can go chasing in the meantime if we choose to and she will come on plenty for it, although we couldn't get her any fitter at home."
