Jockey John Allen made amends for getting beaten on favourite Thounsand Wishes at Caulfield on Saturday, by teaming with stayer in the making Reflect The Stars to secure a win for trainer Danny O'Brien and owners Rosemont Stud.

"It was disappointing to get beaten on Saturday, but thankfully this filly got the job done for us today in what was a good ride today for John," trainer Danny O'Brien said.

Allen went back on the four-year-old from a wide gate, beofre edging into the race three-wide in the midstages and sweeping into the race on the turn.

"It was a very good performance as she made a long sustained run, she is a mare very much in super form early this campaign," Allen said.

The 2000m win followed her second placing on return over 1600m at Pakenham in mid-January. The victory recorded the daughter of Starspangledbanner's second victory from her 12th career start, which has also included four placings. 

"She is a nice staying mare that has a great grounding for us to now see the best of her in the next 12-18 months, and i am sure she will be highly competitive in the final of this races series," O'Brien said.

Tuesday's race was first heat of the Grand Handicap Series, which culminates with a $150,000 2400m final at Caulfield on All Star Mile Day at Caulfield (March 14).
