Top jockey Damian Browne gave trainers a timely reminder of his ability with a polished victory aboard the promising Lauterbrunnen at the Sunshine Coast on Wednesday.

Browne, who has ridden two Group One winners this season, has five rides at Doomben on Saturday including Pepperano in the J J Atkins.

However, he won’t be in action in either the Stradbroke Handicap or the Queensland Derby.

“With Boban staying in the Stradbroke, not a lot of horses had my weight,” Browne said.

“It is the way things go.”

Browne positioned $3 favourite Lauterbrunnen off the pace and brought the horse with a well-timed run to score by 1-1/4 lengths over stablemate Neuschwanstein ($4.40) in the Jansz Hcp (1400m).

Trainer Robert Heathcote said the win was a credit to horse and jockey.

“It was a perfect ride and Damian suits the horse and the horse suits Damian,” Heathcote said.

“Lauterbrunnen needs a dry track and a big track where the pace is on. He is a pretty good horse and he will win better races than this.”

Trainer Trevor Thomas hopes his luck with three-year-olds holds after Unique Pearl arrived in the final stride to win the Hill Smith Family Vineyards Hcp (1400m).

Thomas will start Rising Luck in the Group One Queensland Derby on Saturday.

“We have booked Michael Rodd to ride him and Rising Luck won’t disgrace himself,” Thomas said.

Unique Pearl provided the first leg of a winning double for apprentice Sairyn Fawke who also scored aboard Night Rituals.

Former champion jockey Chris Munce’s aim to finish among the top dozen metropolitan trainers this season received a boost when Savannah Dream won the Patchwork Shiraz Hcp (1200m).

Munce has produced nine city winners since he hung up his saddle in January to begin a training career.
