DAMSELFLY'S Kept looks primed for a big preparation judging by her barnstorming victory at Leeton first-up from a spell on Monday.
The Mitch Beer trained mare had been off the scene since March but proved a class above in the $22,000 Benchmark 58 Hcp, (1050m).
It was the second leg of a winning double for jockey Danielle Scott.

"It was a terrific win by a gutsy little mare," Beer said.
"She tends to mix her form a bit because there is not much of her.
"I think the key is to keep her fresh and find dry tracks for her.
"Danielle galloped her on the course proper the other morning and said to me 'I don't think I've gone that fast on that horse for a while.'
"So I had a bit of confidence she would perform well today.
"But it was a 10/10 ride by Danielle from back in the field because I thought she might have tried to lead.
"She did a super job."
