QUALITY bitch Lillycette proved why she is one of the best of her sex in the state with an effortless win over 461 metres in Hobart last week.

Lillycette was coming off an interstate campaign that netted multiple minor placings at The Meadows.

She lined up from box eight in an Invitation grade event and despite beginning well she was unable to cross King Nitro that led from box seven.

But as they rounded the home turn Lillycette slipped into another gear and powered home to score by 5-1/2 lengths from Buckle Up Omnin that flashed home from well back with Minnie Mogul a distant third ahead of King Nitro.

Lillycette (Velocette-Come Over Nova) has won 10 of 15 in Tasmania with four minor placings form almost $20,000 in stakes.

She was very competitive in Melbourne and will more than likely head back across the water for more racing on city tracks.
