In April last year trainer Danny O'Brien sent a three-year-old to Pakenham that produced a performance  that left little doubt for all in attendance that they had seen a future top level horse. On Thursday the master trainer may have done it again. 

The horse last year was Russian Camelot, who went on to some lofty heights over the next 12 months, and his seven-length win that Autumn evening left little doubt he was destined for great things.  Tonight O'Brien presented a filly by the name of Americain Angel, who stamped her class with a performance that looked every bit as dominant as what transpired last year.

The five-length romp could have been further given jockey Damian Lane eased the $1.50 favoutire down over the final 100m.

"It was pretty comfortable, she jumped well, set good sectionals and kicked strongly off the turn. Her performance was very, very dominant," Lane said. 

The win was also noted by historians who were thrilled to see the familar set of colours worn by the mighty Super Impose salute once more. 

Danny O'Brien Racing Assistant Trainer Ben Gleeson said it was great to get a result for owner John Newton.

"John is a terrific supporter of the stable and we have some nice horses coming through for him at present. It was great to see her put in such a performance tonight and if this filly can achieve even a small amout of what Super Impose did for John, we will be in for an exciting, wild ride," Gleeson said.

The stable is looking at the Schweppes Oaks (2000m) in Adelaide as a potential target for the daughter of Melbourne Cup winner Americain.
