Kieran Regan was singing the praises of Lyrical Angel, a daughter of God Has Spoken, who turned in a breathtaking performance in Wednesday's Amelia Park Handicap (1400m).

Sent out a $30 chance and going around for the third time in her career, only supreme optimists would have considered her a serious winning chance in the straight.

She was posted last before the home corner, but when jockey Steven Parnham angled off heels she unleashed a paralysing burst down the outside to snatch victory.

In a last-stride win, the four-year-old defeated On Target by a short-head with another similar margin to third place getter, Right To Silence.

Regan said Lyrical Angel is an immature, but raw talent.

"She is just so raw and talented," Regan said.

"She's just raw and doesn't know what she is doing.

"I didn't want to come into another 1400 because I thought they would run her off her legs.

"With the way the track was and the bog I thought it would be more like a mile than a 1400, so I didn't mind.

"I think the further she goes the better she'll be."

In a positive affirmation, Regan says there are similar traits and characteristics between Lyrical Angel and her brother, Tin Chooks.

Tin Chooks is Regan's stable star and flag bearer who is being aimed at major Ascot carnival races later this year.

The four-year-old is spelling after claiming four straight races between February and April, the Listed Old Comrade Stakes (1600m) capping a breakout campaign.

"She's probably a bit more forward than he was at this stage," Regan said.

"It took him a couple of runs to do what she's just done.

"Attitude wise they are exactly the same.

"They both have nothing between the ears and it's all raw talent with them."

Lyrical Angel set the tone early for Steven Parnham.

He later booted home Capre Omnia and closed out the seven race card on Allegro Sonata.

Parnham said Lyrical Angel had improved after she caught the eye first up over 1400m at Pinjarra when hitting the line to be placed third.

"She's very new to the game," Parnham said.

"When she got to the outside she extended really well.

"I expected there to be more improvement today.

"She had to step up again and has really come forward."
