BLINKERS ON (R9 N4) broke his own track record at Northam over the 721m in mixed 4/5 city grade company.
After a 42.73 run last week, the Paul Stuart-trained staying star stopped the clock in 42.37 to finish ahead of the eye-catching Blue Aegean.
It was the chasers seventh win from his last 10 starts and career victory 17 from 45 starts.
Earlier on the program, TOP QUARTER (R7 N7) stole victory in the 297m Free For All.
The black dog was first up for three months and swooped from last on the home corner after a collision at the front of the field.
The Murray Stewart-trained chaser paid $33 on the tote while hot favourite Baht Monelli was severely hampered when hitting the lead fought on to finish third behind second place getter Yojimbo.

Chasers to follow:
BOURBON TRAIL (R2 N2) broke through for her first win from career start number two in the country class 509m maiden this afternoon. The John Vuletich-trained youngster took advantage of her good draw from box two and fought hard to win in a time of 29.67, almost one second faster than the track, grade, distance average. Riverside Beau finished second and has put in consecutive good performances and with a good draw could win next start.
