An Epsom Handicap-like ride from Brenton Avdulla gave David Hayes winners in three states when Reprisal won at Warwick Farm on Monday.

Hayes, enjoying a resurgence since setting up a new training complex at Euroa in country Victoria, also trained three winners at Morphettville as well as preparing a Wangaratta winner.

The former Melbourne and Adelaide premier trainer has found Sydney an especially happy hunting ground with four recent victories.

“David has more options to place horses now and the system seems to be working well,” Hayes’ Sydney training assistant Lizzie Jelfs said.

“Usually the horses come up a few days before to help them settle a little bit better.”

In a strongly-run Royal Randwick on Twitter Handicap (2200m), Reprisal came from last on the turn to beat Western Symbol and Dawnfire Dancer.

Avdulla, fresh from his last-to-first winning ride on Secret Admirer in the Epsom Handicap at Randwick on Saturday, produced an almost identical piece of navigation to land the prize with Reprisal, a recent Adelaide placegetter.

“I knew the leaders would stop because they went too hard,” Avdulla told Jelfs.

Hayes will be hoping to add to his Sydney haul when Jelfs saddles up three runners for him at Canterbury on Wednesday.

Darley jockey Kerrin McEvoy took riding honours at the public holiday meeting with a winning treble.

His haul included an impressive come-from-behind victory from Melbourne-bound Galah in the Follow Royal Randwick on Facebook Handicap (1300m).

First-up against older horses, the Peter Snowden-trained three-year-old stormed home to earn his chance at feature races over the next six weeks.

“He’ll probably head to Melbourne for races like the Carbine Club Stakes and the Sandown Guineas,” Darley’s Brad Widdup said.

“He’s been a bit slow to mature but I think Peter will probably push him along a bit this time.”

Rosehill trainer Gerald Ryan, meanwhile, praised the tenacity of Conroy’s Gap after the in-form three-year-old won the Farewell Party at Randwick 5/11 Handicap (1100m).

Conroy’s Gap made it three wins from as many starts since resuming when he held off McCarthur Bull in a driving finish.

“He puts his head down and has a crack,” Ryan said.

A son of Not A Single Doubt, Conroy’s Gap is raced by the Banjo Club Syndicate whose owners include former Australian Jockey Club chairman Bob Charley.

The syndicate enjoyed Group One success with Jymcarew in the 2005 Canterbury Guineas.

Ryan said Conroy’s Gap promised to win more races.

“He’s getting there. He’s a nice horse going the right way,” Ryan said.

Conroy’s Gap raced in the Kindergarten Stakes at his only appearance last season before resuming with Wyong and Hawkesbury wins ahead of Monday’s success.

Leading jockey Nash Rawiller was stood down from the Warwick Farm meeting because of a back injury.

“It’s been a bit of a recurring problem for Nash,” steward Greg Rudolph said.
