Outstanding winner of a high rating Caulfield Cup, the fastest in over 15 years. He was second up, several weeks between runs, so it was a fair training effort from Team Freedman. Mark Zahra sticks with him over defending champ Gold Trip due to the weather forecast. He was proven right in the Caulfield Cup…will he be proven right on the first Tuesday in November? Only time will tell, but history says horses weighted 55kg+ this century run well. Since 2000, eight winners have carried 55kg or more. I think he’s another that you should wait til jump time to get the best price. I’d want decent double figures before diving in.

The stable planned this prep out to resume in the Underwood and have several weeks off into the Caulfield Cup. It was proven to be a genius move as he came with a brilliant finale under a peach from Zahra to wear down a very game West Wind Blows. The win had enormous merit given the race was the fastest edition since 2007.
