WELL bred filly Gee Gees Top Notch signaled she could be a force in some of the feature two-year-old races later in the season with a courageous win in the Raine & Horne Eastern Shore Hcp over 900 metres at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart today.

The John Luttrell-trained filly emerged to run on at the top of the straight and engaged in a battle Royale with Siorca (Brendon McCoull) with Luttrell’s filly getting the nod in right on the line to score by a short half-head.

Gee Gees Top Notch (Wordsmith-Himstedt) was bred by her owners Paul and Elizabeth Geard.

Geegees Double Jo ran on fairly for third after being caught three-wide for much of the trip while race leader Marie Clare battled away to finish fourth ahead of Geegees Gran Lodge.
