Nashville and Kelly Myers have won the Coupland's Bakeries Mile at Riccarton.

The Adrian Bull-trained gelding overcame a poor draw, and a lack of recent racing, to win the $230,000 Group II feature.

Myers and Nashville won their last start, last month in Whanganui, but hadn't raced since May before that.

Flash Hapi led early, but Undisclosed was left to do a power of work and led around Riccarton's final bend and down the straight.

Nashville showed little affect of its lack of racing and had plenty of speed when Myers needed it to out-sprint the favourite.

Favourite Shuka finished second and defending champion Platinum Princess was third.
