Irish-bred stayer Shraaoh followed placings at his three prior starts, the most recent when second in the Chairman’s Handicap (Gr 2, 2600m) here on April 6, to score a solid win in this Group 1.

He settled in eighth place, on the rails, improved (between runners) nearing the home turn, got a split to hit the front at the 200m and then fought back well under his limit weight (51kg) to win well.

It was also a good ride by Jay Ford. Vengeur Masque raced in fifth place, improved well (wide) coming to the home turn, challenged strongly at the 200m and then battled well for a very good second.

New Zealand stayer Glory Days settled back in 14th place from her difficult barrier (18), started a move (deep) from the 600m, moved up quickly (centre of the track) to go to third at the 100m and then fought well to hold that position.

Another New Zealand stayer Rondinella travelled nicely in seventh place, got into clear running at the 300m and kept battling well from that point for (2.9 lengths) fourth.

The favourite, the Charlie Appleby-trained Dubhe, settled back in 12th place on the rails, was under pressure from Kerrin McEvoy at the 700m and he just battled from that point to finish (7.4 lengths) 12th at his first Australian start.
