The Chris Munce-trained Skate To Paris has been four-times stakes-placed before – twice at two, once at three and once at four – but it has taken until early in her six-year-old season before she has gained that elusive win. Sent out as the $8.50 fourth favourite, Skate To Paris was ridden conservatively by Larry Cassidy from the outside gate of 11. However, when she was asked to quicken, she was much too good, scooting away to score by three lengths over Free Fly Too (Teofilo) with Toryjoy (Street Cry) a further half-length away in third.
