Winning Trainer: Leon & Troy Corstens (rep by Dom Sutton)

"He's a really consistent horse. Things didn't go his way in Brisbane. He was drawing out wide every start and being posted three-wide with no cover so it was good to get him back home and get a result.

"He's come down in terrific order and we haven't done much with him. He only arrived last Saturday so he had one little gallop on Tuesday morning and he's in good order."

Sprint Series Final: "I'd say that would be on the cards. I'll let Nathan Bennet and Troy discuss that."

Winning Jockey: Damien Thornton

"He gave me a really good ride throughout the run. He jumped pretty quick and when the acceptances came out I was happy to follow Sartorial Splendour (scratched) and get the cart off him but it worked out that I became that horse and he just kept kicking.

"He (is one for) real momentum and you keep him flowing he'll keep coming for you. It was a good, tough win. His first-up run at Doomben was good without a lot of room and he became a bit of a victim last start. But he had been going really well and a big thanks to Nathan Bennett and his team for the ride and it's good to get them some winners."
