Lindsay Park has collected its fourth win in the past eight editions of the Furphy Trophy when Bold Bastille took out the Listed race at Flemington.

The Ben, Will and JD Hayes-trained filly led throughout to claim the 1000m dash, backing up the form she showed when successful at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate day last year.

Sent out the $2.10 favourite under Mark Zahra, Bold Bastille scored a three-quarter length win from Drifting ($3.30) with Grinzinger Love ($15) a further 2-ΒΌ lengths away third.

Ben Hayes said missing last week's Group 1 Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) at Caulfield was a blessing.

Bold Bastille suffered a setback early in the year before starting her campaign which forced her to miss a first-up run at Caulfield in late January.

Hayes said a start in the Blue Diamond had been close, but they came to the realisation they were playing catch-up with the filly.

"I think in hindsight it was a great decision because the way the race (Blue Diamond) was run, they went really hard, and she would have been torched," Hayes said.

"The 1200 metres would have been a question mark, and it was so inviting to come back to the 1000 metres today.

"The straight was always a question mark, but she was so professional today."

Hayes said a step up to 1200m in the future will not pose a problem for the filly and he said there were many options for the filly.
