Within the cart the filly trailed the leader for most of the 1609-metre journey before easing out in the home straight to stake her claim.
The leader and race favourite Jokers Wild Card looked to be travelling well nearing the home turn but when her driverreleased the deafeners and went for home it opened the door for Fawzia to issue her challenge.
Fawzia moved alongside Jokers Wild Card and eventually gained the upper hand with the judges winning margin 1-1/4 metres on the line.
Jokers Wild Card battled gamely while Grace Campbell () worked home nicely for third but over five metres astern.
Fawzia (x) is trained by who also bred the filly from his former handy race mare Public Persecution that probably never realised her full potential because of her attitude to racing.
Rattray said Fawzia also has attitude but thankfully not as many unsuitable traits as her mother.
