Avdulla dashed down the centre of the track on Pretty In Pink to win eased down by a couple of lengths from Invictus Salute ($6.50) and Lady Of Shalott ($5.50).
O’Shea praised Avdulla’s ride because he didn’t panic and push the button too early.
Avdulla showed it again a race later when Moss Trip ($3.60) won the Inglis Guineas, using her acceleration to put the boys away in a couple of strides. Avdulla was back in the field but wasn’t worried as they rolled along in front.
‘‘I knew they would come back to me but, when I got her out and asked to go, her turn of foot was better than anything in the race,’’ he said.
‘‘She had it won at the 200m and it was enjoyable in the end.’’
Co-trainer Peter Snowden also noted Avdulla’s development.
Moss Trip will head to Brisbane, where the Tatts Tiara is on the agenda.
