After Ambella had gone so close in the opener tonight, it was a pleasant surprise when Moulin Rouge broke her duck in the handicap over an extended 9f at Wolvehampton.

As she did on her debut, Moulin Rouge pulled very hard early on, but there are few stronger or better jockeys in such circumstances than Stevie Donohoe and his skill and persistance paid off with a final strides win.

It was hard to know what to make of her Scandanavian form when she came to Dominion Racing Stables, but her UK debut showed she had some ability.

If she learns to settle better in the future, she should be capable of winning again in her grade.
