Glamour mare More Joyous has confirmed her favouritism to take out the 2012 running of the Group 1 Doncaster Handicap at Royal Randwick today ahed of Shoot Out and Yosei.

Connections were rewarded with the Randwick track being upgraded throughout the day to be a Dead 5 for the start of the Doncaster.
