James Cummings has Group One ambitions for three-year-old filly Savvan after she beat the older horses at Canterbury on Wednesday in the Ranvet Benchmark 67 Handicap (1550m).

The Trelawney Stud graduate was sent out the $3.70 favourite and enjoyed a handy trail for Jason Collett before taking control rounding the turn and holding off a strong challenge from Jason Coyle's Speed Hero ($5), scoring by a half-head.

"She's built like a colt," Cummings said. "She's got plenty of substance about her.

"She can do well up north if we get her there in good form."

Cummings is looking at the Listed Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m) on May 6 as a stepping stone to Savvan's winter grand final, Cummings already putting a plan in motion to ensure she gets there.

"She'll be nominated for the Queensland Oaks when the time comes," Cummings said.

"She pulls hard. She's a very willing horse. Very giving and a with bit of racing and a bit of work she'll come back to us.

"She's going the right way."

The first pair Savvan and Speed Hero cleared out from the John Sargent-trained third-placegetter Sahara Eagle ($4) which was beaten 3-1/2 lengths.

The A$500,000 Queensland Oaks (2400m) is scheduled for Eagle Farm on June 3.
