The night got even better in race six, an A4, with Blade making it a treble on the night.
A 5-1 chance, she came from well off the pace to beat the rallying Slaneyside Ashly. A head between them in 29.80.
Backed as if defeat was out of the question, Springside Amy delivered a superb performance to win race five, an A6.
In front after the second corner, the gambled on 5-4 favourite pulled further and further clear throughout. At the line, she was eight and a half lengths clear, in 29.07.
Breaking well, Witches Sonia was soon in front in race four, an A3.
