Winning Trainer: Tony Gollan (rep by Craig Cavanough)

"He's a really little racehorse and loves coming for a day out and he's hard to get past when he leads.

"It is handlebars down with him. He likes a race for the first furlong and he relaxes for Ang midrace and they've got their work cut out chasing.

Winning from barrier 13: "He won from an outside barrier alley over six furlongs last start. I was pleased the monitors were on him before he went to the gates because I thought he'd lost a leg he was blowing out that much."

Winning Jockey: Angela Jones

"He had a lot of speed last start but I did think he'd have the speed to cross a few of these speedy horses in this field today.

"Back to the 1000 metres, he really fired up (and) he was still able to come back to be and relax. He still got a bit of a breather.

"It was still a fast tempo when he kicked off and a big credit to him and Tony as well."
