Winning Trainer: Ciaron Maher & David Eustace (Ciaron Maher speaking)

On the win: "The whole team, Col Mckenna, he's been a huge supporter with these colours since I started training and for them to race Jameka and to win the big race here is unbelievable. Today's all about the owners and the breeders."

What next: "He had a long break, he's en route to a Warrnambool Cup, hopefully he gets there. He hasn't been beyond 2040m but we'll probably look at that next start."

On Jamie Kah: "He's not easy to ride this horse, she does a lot of work with him, a lot of gallops, he makes it hard work for her but you could see she knows him so well and gave them the slip before the bend."

Winning Jockey: Jamie Kah

On his quirks: "It's not pretty, he does what he wants to do, but on Tuesday was the first piece of work where I felt him really relax. I think he's taken a big step up from his last race, he looks lengths better and Ciaron's done a fantastic job."

Stepping up in trip at Warrnambool: "I thought he was going well, I wanted to see him do that today. He could've gone further, I couldn't pull him up. He's got a great set of lungs on him and he can just stay all day."
