Michael Rodd kicked off Melbourne Cup day by steering Villa Verde to victory in the opening race at Flemington on Tuesday, the Listed 7News Plate.

It was the filly’s second straight win after she was successful at Caulfield on October 17.

Rodd and Villa Verde cruised to the line 2-3/4 lengths ahead of Purrific with Glen Boss on board, while Thump was third.

Winning trainer Shaun Dwyer said Villa Verde continued to impress him as she notched two wins from her first two starts.

“She was out there with no cover but she just does everything right,” Dwyer said.

“She’s just so cool and so composed.”

Dwyer said he had always been confident going into the 1000m race because of the filly’s temperament.

“She’s good to train, she just keeps eating. It’s what we’re all looking for.”

He said the two-year-old would now be rested.
