Gamble Rules returned to winning ways with a gutsy front running performance at Palermo.
Taking her record to two wins in her last three starts the Phoenix Thoroughbreds and Haras Abolengo owned filly led from start to finish in the 2000m event.
Always happiest when out in front the jockey Eduardo Ortega Pavon was quick to move his partner to the front as the gates opened. Setting an even tempo out in front Gamble rules gradually saw her rivals drop out of contention one by one. Turning for home and still leading the Nicolas Martin Ferro trainee had one challenger in the form of Joy Vaxy left and while for a moment it looked as though she might not get home in front Gamble Rules pulled out plenty more to grab glory by a comfortable margin.
