The seven year-old was last with 500 metres to run but jockey Serg Lisnyy took the Bel Danoro gelding to the inside in the cutaway to produce a withering burst down the straight, eclipsing Single Spirit by almost half a length.

The bookmakers rated Malleable as the one of the rank outsiders in the race, offering odds of 80-1 while the seven year-old paid $98.30 for the win on the TAB.

The win means Malleable now has a conformed start in the Carlton Draught Coffs Harbour Gold Cup to be run on Thursday, August 3.
