Winning Trainer: Ciaron Maher & David Eustace (Assistant trainer Jack Turnbull speaking)

On today's performance: "He had a bit of weight today and ended up in an awkward spot. The second horse ended up helping us in the end, we got on the back of him, but credit to the horse. He's in a rich vein of form and he's done it again."

On the chance of backing up at Warrnambool during the week: "Probably unlikely. We like to space his runs, we'll naturally have a look, but I dare say we'll bypass that."

On the decision to run today instead of Warrnambool: "It was a call by Colin and Janice (McKenna, owners) and Andy (Makiv, racing manager) and it's paid off.

"They bred and own the horse, so big credit to them and hopefully it's a sign of a big week at Warrnambool."

Winning Jockey: Linda Meech

On today's ride: "I got there too soon and he got me out of hole so all credit to the horse."

On whether he could get a further trip: "I'm sure he's in the right stable to get a bit further as well. The mile was good for him today but I'm sure he could run a trip. He's a lovely, relaxed, casual sort of bloke and I couldn't see why he couldn't step up."
