Neva Doubt Us made it three wins in a row when he scored in the Benchmark 80 Handicap over 1750 metres at the Port Lincoln races on Sunday.
Using the inside gate to advantage Teagan Voorham, who was having her first ride on the gelding, settled a lot closer than usual and when in the clear put the opposition away with ease.
The Des Courtney trained six-year-old surprisingly eased in betting ($3.60) with the support for Abbi Fede who was backed as $2.30 favourite.
Emoji stuck to the task holding on for second in front of Dance Of Heroes and Abbi Fede who did a few things wrong in the run which cost him any chance of victory.
Neva Doubt Us looks the best stayer around at present in a season where there does not look to be a lot of depth in quality middle distance horses. He looks the best Port Lincoln Cup prospect of the locals so far.
The day started with My Ruby winning the two-year-old race for Wayne Francis and Glen Kent when she gunned down odds-on favourite Zeblan in the shadows of the post.
The visitors dominated but locals Strip Club (third) and Hayzelle who chased hard in fourth were encouraging.
The Four Cees was an impressive winner in race six, having only his fourth race start he relished stepping out to the 1750 metres and getting to the outside.
The time was identical to the Benchmark 80 earlier in the day adding further merit to the performance.
Other winners on the day were Fearless Al, Doctor Doolittle, Downs After Dark, Social Media and Antrim's Secret.
Attention turns to the Ceduna Cup at Ceduna on January 18. The next Port Lincoln meeting is a twilight meeting on January 24.
