Winning Trainer: Anthony & Sam Freedman (Michael Freedman representing)

On the run: "They felt getting him up to that distance, and obviously a bit of give in the ground today where it wasn't too firm, was much more to his liking. He's a good, genuine stayer and I think the boys will be rapt with that."

On the campaign: "He's been here for a month now or just under. He's enjoying being at Randwick so it's good for the boys to get a win."

On the future: "I don't know what Anthony has got planned for him, whether he might take him back to Melbourne or whether he keeps him here for something else. I'll leave it up to him and he can decide what he wants to do."

Winning Jockey: Nash Rawiller

Thoughts on the win: "I think he really loved that 2600m."

"I probably had him fired up a little bit on a couple of occasions but I didn't want him coming off the bridle when we were chasing too far from home because we both would have gotten tired. I kept him up under me and he showed plenty of intent there over the last 100m.

On his current strong form: "I want to send a cheerio to my family and all of my mates and supporters. They have been unbelievable, especially my wife over the last 12 to 18 months. They've basically let me stay in the basement by myself most of the time. I have a lot of good friends around me who look after me and keep me on track. I'm just really loving my riding at the moment."

Beaten Jockeys:

Tim Clark (Entente): "He ran terrific. Had a lovely run no excuses. Very brave."

Josh Parr (Fun Fact): "Something went amiss with him."

Sam Clipperton (Young Rascal): "Poor effort."

James Innes (Hush Writer): "He had to do a bit to lead and make his own luck, run into the headwind but he didn't disgrace himself."

Kerrin McEvoy (Carif): "Nice run. He's going to improve off that. Just the ground went against him a little bit."

Hugh Bowman (Luncies): "Superb effort. Very proud of him. Winner was just too tough for us today.

Jenny Duggan (Torrens): "Ran a terrific race. He'll get further again this horse."

Robbie Dolan (Master Shuhood): "Just needs a freshen up now."

Alysha Collett (Savvy Valentino): "Ran super."

Regan Bayliss (Purrfect Deal): "She ran well."

Rachel King (High Emocean): "Little bit disappointing. Maybe got a bit lost going this way around."
