A heady ride by Day earned the maximum seven points when successful aboard Heaven’s High ($7) in the heat.

Day jumped the mare to the lead, but she was soon pressured by roughie Military Bay (Jacob Golden), allowing that horse to take up the running with Day then gaining a trail.

Coming to the home bend, Day kicked up inside the leader and shot clear which proved a decisive move.

Heaven’s High then withstood the late charge of Cassy’s Sister (Samantha Clenton, $1.55 fav) who finished fast but seemed to peak on her run 40m from the finish.

Qin Yong on Red Liberty ($17) held on strongly to secure third place and earn Yong three points.

Those points are vital as Yong has now taken the lead on the Rising Star point score with 15 points.

Clenton gained five points and moves to second spot on 14 points, just in advance of Yvette Lewis (13 points) and Billy Owen (12pts).

However, Louise Day is now well within striking distance and sits on a clear fifth place with nine points.

A total of 24 heats have been scheduled, culminating with a Series Final at Hawkesbury on Thursday, 30 July 2020.
