MAIDEN G1 WINNER TAKES OUT QLD OAKS

Edward Cummings has become the latest Cummings to record Group 1 victory by seeing his filly finish one better than she did in the ATC Oaks just two months earlier during the Championships in Sydney

Duais wins the QLD Oaks

Duais was heavily backed in the lead into the race jumping a short $2.90 favourite and the punters were laughing all the way to the bank as she powered home and gapped the chasing field. 

A daughter of Shamus Award, Duais had finished second in the ATC Oaks behind Chris Waller trained Hungry Heart but it was the Cummings runner that was able to turn the table this time around beating home the Waller Pair of Charms Star and Signora Nera.

In the race itself, jockey Hugh Bowman took Duais to the rear of the field after gaining a wide barrier in the draw on Tuesday and looked to settle second last on the fence in running.

On approaching the home turn Bowman slowly began moving the filly through the field, capitalising on openings and pushing into a position to come wide on the pack in the home turn.


From there the Cummings running did the rest of the work. Getting wide in the straight Duais was able to kick clear and justified the punters backing winning by 2.5l and clearing out from the field who struggled to contain the winner. 

While Ed Cummings was clearly elated with his maiden Group 1 win it was also an important milestone for Hugh Bowman.

Winning the race took Bowman to 99 Group 1 winning rides and with another two weekends of Group 1 racing coming up in QLD you’d be expecting the 100 to be coming up sooner rather than later.
