Vain Queen makes it three from three

Confidence turned to concern for apprentice Tom Sadler in the minutes before he rode favourite Vain Queen in Saturday's Trevor Clarke Handicap at Flemington.

But he need not have worried as the talented filly powered to a third win from as many starts.

Sadler said Vain Queen ($2.90) might have been a "little over the top" in her final start of the campaign as she wasn't showing him the right signs on the way out for the 1200m race.

"She started to run back into the fences and I had a bit of a panic attack," Sadler said.

"I came here thinking she was a pretty good thing and the worst thing is to be running into fences and doing bad things on the way to the gates.

"But once she got into the gates and once she jumped out she was her normal self and towed me into the race."

Despite wanting to hang in when she sprinted clear in the middle of the track from the 300m, Vain Queen added to previous wins at Ballarat and Flemington with a 1-1/2-length margin over La Tikka Rosa ($15) with the same gap to Our Celladoor ($6.50) third.

Trainer John Sadler missed Saturday's meeting due to illness but his son Tom said he believed Vain Queen would be more suited to races around a turn next season rather than racing down the straight.

"I know how green she can be down here and I don't know if we want to be paying too many visits down the straight again, but she survived and keeps improving," he said.
