CLEARLY now Shoals is the best filly in the country. A Group 1 winner in the spring, the Fastnet Rock filly bagged a third Group 1 at Morphettville on Saturday with an imperious display in the eponymously named Robert Sangster Stakes.

From worse than midfield, Shoals powered into the race as the widest runner on the bend. None could go with her as Tim Clark kept her honest making the two-length win look effortless at the line.
