Fuhryk has put herself in the frame for an Australian Guineas start with a dominant Group Three win in the Kevin Hayes Stakes at Caulfield.

The filly's win in the 1200-metre sprint yesterday gave Craig Williams his third straight victory of the afternoon following his wins aboard Catchy and Property in the divisions of the Blue Diamond Prelude.

Williams had the $2.40 favourite positioned just behind a solid pace before easing her into the clear early in the straight.

She ran home to post a two-length win over Oregon's Day, with Savana Amour a long neck away third.

"She was good today," Williams said. "She got back to her pet distance of 1200 metres and I had a lot of horse for the whole race. When she got clear I was really pleased with her acceleration. She was dominant."

Lindsay Park senior trainer David Hayes said the stable believed Fuhryk would be an even better filly when she stepped up in distance.

After claiming her first stakes win yesterday, the filly will head to Gr. 2 Angus Armanasco Stakes at Caulfield on February 25 and if successful, could back up in the Gr. 1 Australian Guineas at Flemington the following week.

"The stable feels when she gets up to 1400 metres and a mile that he'll be at her best," Hayes said. "It looked that way at the finish. It was quite a dominant win."
