Two-year-old Dream Kisses will head north for her final run this winter after her win in the Furnaces @aquis Farm Crystal Slipper at Doomben.

Dream Kisses ($4.80) strode up outside the leader at the 600m on Saturday and went away in the straight to beat Cool Mover ($17) by three-quarters of a length.

The filly is raced by her breeder, North Queensland farmer Joe Rapisarda, who has been a long term client of Dream Kisses's trainer, Steve O'Dea.

O'Dea said Dream kisses would probably head to Townsville for north Queensland's major two-year-old race, the Parry Nissan, in three weeks.

"It is a set-weights race, which will suit her, and then Joe can spell her up there," O'Dea said.

He said the addition of blinkers at Doomben on Saturday had helped Dream Kisses.

Jockey Corey Brown said Cool Mover had a nice run and tried hard in the straight, with a win not far away.

She's Our Star ($3.30) was three-quarters of a length back in third place after being attacked in the lead in the middle stages.
