Winning Trainer: David Brideoake

"Terrific. She's such a good horse and, honestly, this preparation she hasn't done anything wrong, she's just had a series of gates and bits and pieces that didn't allow us to get a result. But, today it is a good result.

Ear Muffs on: "Her first couple of runs this time were with ear muff and then we took them off when we were back at the mile and put them back on today."

For the owners - Tony Ottobre: "They'll be so happy. It's a good job. He puts his money in, he buys nice horses and he's had good success. Just lately we've had good success and it's fantastic."

What's next - Matriarch Stakes: "That's possibly where we're going to go."

No temptation to try for the Melbourne Cup: "We just didn't get enough mile-and-a-half work into her. There's always next year."

"She's just such a good horse and I knew she was in good shape, to lift like that. But the ride, the ride was outstanding."

Winning Jockey: Jye McNeil

Geelong and Bendigo Cup in seven days: "It's great. Her form probably wasn't going the best into it but a small little gear chance and everything going well during the racing she put her best foot forward and was quite a nice performance, I thought

Up to 2400m wasn't a problem: "I was travelling so well before the turn that I nearly fell into the trap of improving too early but she was starting to peak a little bit on her run late. The race was over by then and the way things went during the race it was just perfect."

Has he been able to cut himself some slack with weight since Cox Plate: "I've got to get back down for Odeum in the Empire Rose this weekend but after that I can get back into my tucker and drinks."

Beaten Jockeys:

Willie Pike on Zebrowski: "I had better memories last year (winning). He had his chance. He just wasn't good enough today."

Damien Oliver on Saracean Knight: "He ran well. He had his chance."

Damian Lane on Pondus: "He ran well. He had his chance."

John Allen on  Furrion: "He travelled like the winner, just might be a half run behind."

Michael Dee on Inverloch: "Might be feeling the effects of a couple of firm tracks. He's a horse that goes better on softer ground."

Jamie Kah on Haky: "Really good run. He's just not jumping well. He missed the start and that probably cost us, honestly. I think he probably would have won if he jumped cleanly and was on the pace. "
