Winning Trainer: Kevin Corstens

On the mare: "She's just improved every time, she's matured and gets better as she gets older. Typical of the Ghibellines breed. She's been working super and she's just improved since her last start - it was 1800 (metres) and I just thought she was looking for that bit more ground. She was doing her best work probably the last 50 (metres) and just improved since.

Tasmanian options: "There is certainly the thought there, i said she had to go good today to think about that sort of thing but we might head that way.

On the ride: "Sensational. It didn't actually go to plan. We were going to try to lead on her which is her normal pattern of racing. He tried to hold out the leader as long as he possibly could and made it work and then he sat behind it and got the run - great ride.

Winning Jockey: Matt Cartwright

On the run: "I knew Tom's horse likes to go hard so I wanted to try and get a bit of cover off him and I'm glad I did. She travelled right into it and let go good and she proved too tough for them. I was travelling strongly throughout and I thought it's going to take a good one to catch me, but they didn't so it was a good win.
