A narrow win in the Lane Cove Legends Doug Allen Memorial Grenfell Cup (1400m) on Saturday has elevated As Easy As up the leader board whereby she is now contesting the lead.
As Easy As (Samara Johnson, $5.50) won the Cup by a head from Benno's Boy (Daniel Stanley, $4.20) with Dream on Stan (Kath Bell-Pitomac, $8) a further head away in third place.
Sergeant Bilko (36 points) is now just a point clear of As Easy As with Kinda Tangy (27pts) in third berth. Spare Parts, courtesy of his second in the Grenfell Bracelet, moves into a clear fourth spot on 21 points.
