Rex Lipp's decision to geld Cifrado has reaped another stakes win with the three-year-old storming to victory in the Group 3 Vo Rogue Plate at Doomben.

The son of Encryption has always had the ability, as demonstrated by his win in the Group 2 Queensland Sires' Produce Stakes (1400m), but the Toowoomba trainer felt he was never going to fulfil his true potential as a racehorse while a colt.

"He had a fortnight in the paddock out at my property, we put him into work, then we gave him a very soft trial," Lipp said.

"It was a fantastic run the other day, I do believe he was one of those unlucky runs in the race, but today just proved that he's a horse different this time in now he's been gelded."

Cifrado settled near the rear in the Vo Rogue Plate and was brought to the centre of the track by jockey Damien Thornton to unleash a powerful final 300m and reel in the Chris Waller-trained Chrysaor, who looked the winner after striking the front 100m from home.

But Cifrado ($11) wore down the well-backed $3.30 second elect, scoring by a half-length with $21 chance Ringer's Reward three-quarters-of-a-length away third.

The disappointment of the race was $2.70 favourite Show Me Mercy, who travelled just behind the leading division and was presented to challenge early in the straight but was beaten soon after and finished sixth, beaten more than 3-1/2 lengths.
