Iffraaj two-year-old Astor was too strong for her opposition in the NZB Insurance Pearl Series two-year-old race at Hastings on Thursday.

Drawn the ace barrier, the Danica Guy-trained runner jumped well and led throughout to win by a length and a half over Kate Louise with Eva Dawn back in third.

“Nothing really got near enough to her to test her,” Guy said.

“She did get a bit lost in the home straight I thought, she was just waiting on them a little bit.  But she was brave and kept up her gallop and got the job done.”

Astor will now be set for the Gr.3 Gold Trail Stakes at Hastings on September 23.

“We will probably find another soft run for her and then come back to Hastings for the Gold Trail,” Guy said.

“Whether we just take her to a trial leading into the Gold Trail or whether I give her a soft run up around home somewhere we’ll just see what fits in the best.”
