Winning Trainer: Gerald Ryan & Sterling Alexiou (Gerald comments)

On the conditions: "The conditions were in his favour today with the wet track and a bit of rain around. He got a comfortable lead in front. Timmy rated him well and the way he worked Tuesday morning was sensational."

On the horse: "He's just a good colt. It just didn't work in the Golden Rose but there is plenty of money around in races just off the top. I reckon next year as a 3yo, races like the Stradbroke are right up his alley."

On winning a million dollar race: "Not many horses win five out of eight. Not many horses win four out of four at Randwick. He keeps up on the speed. He's just a nice colt."

Where to next: "He's had 26 days off since January. He'll go out MOnday and he'll have a nice spell. He may improve or hold his own. He's a horse who could improve. He has a great attitude for a colt and come back a nice horse in the Autumn. There is so much to pick from in the Autumn for good 3yos. It worked for Trapeze Artist. The Stradbroke is a handicap so be patient and placing him right."

Winning Jockey: Tim Clark

On the wet track: "The wet track really played into his hands, he revelled in that ground. I think that was the reason he didn't look quite as impressive the other day, because of the ground.

"Getting his toe right into it today he was just a different horse. He really quickened well at the 300m when I asked him and put the race beyond doubt pretty quickly."

On the horse: "He was tried against the best three-year-olds and probably just came up a little short. Smart play by Gerald and Sterling, just coming back that notch.

"He's a Group 2 winner and now he has won a million dollar race so I think it was really smart planning by them and they deserve a lot of credit.

On his future: "Going forward, now that he has shown he can run out a strong mile, he's got a really nice attitude, he doesn't worry about things and he's a beautifully natured horse to ride.

"In the autumn where generally we do get wet tracks I'm sure he will be able to measure up to some better races."

Beaten Jockeys:

Tommy Berry (Prime Star): "Just beaten by a better horse. He had a beautiful run. Thought we were the winner at the top of the straight but the winner found too much."

Nash Rawiller (Acrophobic): "Never comfortable on the ground really. He was there to go up and join the winner but as soon as I asked him for an effort, he floundered in the ground."

Regan Bayliss (Street Dancer): "He has come to the end of his prep. He is not favoured on this sort of ground. Still whacked away nicely."

Rachel King (Namazu): "Really struggled on that heavy track but he will be a nice horse going forward."

Tom Sherry (Real Peace): "Huge effort. He will be a nice horse next prep over a bit further."

Koby Jennings (Stylebender): "He actually ran pretty good. Once he gets gelded and over 2000m. I know he was a massive price today, he wasn't that bad."

Robbie Dolan (Elizabeel): "She ran really well. She will be more effective on a drier track. She copped a bump out of the gates and she just didn't settle in the mid-stages. Should be better next prep."

Brenton Avdulla (Red Stiletto): "Struggled in the ground."
