John Thompson found himself hankering for the finishing line as Sweet Deal won the Toy Show Quality

John Thompson feared Sweet Deal would be outsprinted in the Toy Show Quality but instead found himself hankering for the finishing line.

Concerned the mare would find the 1100 metres too sharp under her top weight, Thompson was delighted to see Sweet Deal put herself in the race and hit the front in the straight.

But he faced a few anxious moments as Zaniah charged late to just miss in a photo finish.

“We thought the 1100 might be a bit short but as it turned out, it was a little bit too long,” Thompson said.

“I was chatting to a few of the trainers this morning, I was worried with the big weight as well, but (trainer) Les Bridge said to me, ‘good mares win these races’ and she is a good mare.”

Sweet Deal ($6.50) had a nose to spare over Zaniah ($26) with the luckless Seasons ($9) another half-neck away after being unable to secure clear running for much of the straight.

Adelong started a solid favourite but had to work early to lead and finished sixth, two lengths from the winner.
