Winning Trainer: Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr

"First winner from our new Cranbourne (stables) and he's a beautiful colt.

"It was a big step and we knew we had a good horse to do it. It is a massive result because the owner has flown all the way from Singapore for the day and to get a win with him here is huge.

"We always thought he'd be better in the autumn, to be honest. We didn't know if he would be going out after this run but we set him for the race and it has all worked out.

"He was down at our Warrnambool stable initially and now at Cranbourne it has all worked out well.

"Lovely ride. He really travelled well. As soon as the gates opened it was on."

Changing dates of these races: "You get a different type of horse. Once it cements a spot in the calendar then people will target it. Look at the crowd, it's electric here. When you're winning as well it is always good."

Winning Jockey: Damian Lane

"Well prepared and well educated because he won really well first-up and he's obviously come on well from that run.

"I was able to use him a little bit early, put him in a spot, switch him off. Everything you want from a horse he did for me and I knew I was the winner a long way out.

"I wanted to follow Festival Dancer. I knew it was going to be the one to lead. That was the plan and it looks good when it all works out. It doesn't all the time but it did today. With the horse I had under me I was able to do that."

Off to Hong Kong for HKIR: "I'm really looking forward to being back in Hong Kong. I had a little bit of success there and looking forward to being a part of the International Jockey Challenge for the first time.

"I've got a couple of good rides on the Sundy. I've picked up Computer Patch in the Sprint and I ride my good mate Salios in the Mile."
