Ben Hayes said he took a lot of confidence from Crosshaven’s win in the Caulfield Guineas Prelude (1400m) and felt it showed he would run out 1600m strongly in two weeks time.
“It was a really good effort because it looked to me that they really ran along there and he was able to do it at both ends. He’s a pretty nice horse, isn’t he?,” Hayes said.
“He’s now got a fantastic record with four wins from five starts and every race he’s won he’s won impressively.”
Crosshaven ($5.50) defeated Amish Boy ($7) by 1-3/4 lengths with National Choice ($51) a head away third.
