Invitational secured her ticket to All-Weather Championships Finals Day with victory in the Ladbrokes Where The Nation Plays Fillies’ Conditions Stakes at Wolverhampton.

The Roger Varian-trained filly – a Listed-race winner in France last time out – was sent off the 4-5 favourite under Jack Mitchell, and was soon tracking the pace sent by Emily Goldfinch.

Taking it up a fair way out, Mitchell’s mount was always doing enough to hold the late challenge of Rock On Baileys, prevailing by a length and three-quarters.

Mitchell said: “Invitational has done that nicely. She is not very big, but she has got loads of speed.

“For a filly that has run quite a few times, she was wandering around in the straight, but she got the job done.

“This is fast-track qualifier, which means she is in the big race (Ladbrokes All-Weather Fillies & Mares Championship) now on Good Friday, and hopefully she will come on again from today.”

Mitchell and Varian wasted little time in following up, as Nehaall (15-8) foiled 7-4 market leader Symbol Of Love in the Ladbrokes Football Acca Booty Fillies’ Novice Stakes.
