Primevere recorded a deserved Listed-race success in the EBF 'Exceed And Excel' Upavon Fillies' Stakes at Salisbury on Wednesday afternoon.
Roger Charlton's daughter of Singspiel chased home the exciting Nahrain at Sandown a couple of starts back and was just a neck behind Sooraah at Ascot last time out.
Stepping back up to 10 furlongs, Hayley Turner settled the 13-2 chance in second as Opera Gal set the pace and plenty of those from behind failed to get involved.
Opera Gal made a good fist of it from the front but Primevere picked her up to score by a length and three-quarters in a course record time.
The favourite, Seta, plugged on late in the day to finish third but never threatened to land a significant blow.
Charlton was landing his seventh winner in the last 14 days.
