Chouxting The Mob has overhauled his rivals to continue his winning run in a staying race at Flemington

Under the urgings of champion jockey Damien Oliver, Simon Morrish-trained Chouxting The Mob has overhauled his rivals to continue his winning run in a staying race at Flemington.

The five-year-old gelding went into Saturday’s Great Ocean Road Handicap (2520m) having won his past three starts and knuckled down to his task in the final 200m on a soft track to extend his winning streak.

Chouxting The Mob, the $2.15 favourite, defeated Flow Meter ($81) by a long neck with Last Week ($3.40) another neck away third.

“As I continue to say, I don’t know how good he is but he is a real stayer,” Morrish said.

“I’d love to see 3000-metre, 3200-metre races for him.

“He’s a credit to himself and it was a great ride.”

Just like two weeks ago when Chouxting The Mob also won at Flemington over 2500m, Saturday’s race was a heat of the Banjo Paterson Series.

The final of the series is a $150,000 race over 2600m at the same track in two weeks, which Morrish said looks a logical option.

“It’s pretty hard to throw last start winners out into the paddock,” Morrish said.

“But he’s been terrific to us and I don’t want to hurt him. We’ll just see how he pulls up. The Final is there in a fortnight and we’ll see what happens.

“I think it’s the obvious thing to do but we’ll see how he pulls up.”
