WELL bred filly Jeda’s Quest notched her first win in a maiden over 1100m at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart today and her trainer Leon Wells immediately predicted she had a bright future.

Jeda’s Quest (West Quest-Broadway Illusion) came from near last at the turn to score by over a length from first starters Tango’s Gee and Gee Gee’s La Quita.

The three-year-old was having her second start this preparation coming off an eye-catching first-up third on her home track at Devonport three weeks ago.

It was a masterful ride by leading jockey Stephen Maskiell who persevered with rails runs to save valuable ground from the 500-metre peg and when he called on the filly for the supreme effort 200m out she delivered the goods.
