    TONIGHT’S Northern Oaks at Alexandra Park was a story of triumph and tragedy.

    Race favourite Elle Mac got a luxurious lead and recorded an easy victory in the time-honoured race to claim another Group One.

    But her main rival, Bettor Joy, suffered a nasty check shortly after the start, losing any chance of winning.

    Elle Mac whipped home in 56.8 seconds to complete a comfortable three-length victory in the hands of co-trainer Natalie Rasmussen, who prepares the three-year-old with Mark Purdon.

    The Blue Riband is Elle Mac’s third Group One from 12 starts, which has netted seven wins and two seconds for earnings of $358,714.

    It’s an intriguing strike-rate and one Rasmussen says is testament to the idiosyncrasies of the filly.

    “She’s quite a lazy girl and you have to really set her a target and get her wound right up for it,” Rasmussen said.
