Lightly-raced stayer Marden became the latest in a long line of imported horses to win for the Chris Waller stable when he defied a wide run to score at Rosehill on Saturday.

The four-year-old son of Danehill Dancer was never closer than three off the fence throughout in the Bacardi Handicap (2000m) but proved too strong in the run to the line, defeating Fiscal ($6.50) by 1-1/4 lengths with Kim Devine ($4.20 fav) another length away third.

Sydney’s premier trainer has enjoyed great success with imported stayers from Europe in the past five years and Waller said Marden ($5) was showing promise.

The gelding is still among nominations for this year’s Melbourne Cup and could head to the Listed City Tattersalls Club Cup (2400m) at Randwick on October 15.

“He’s promising,” Waller said.

“He came over lightly raced with a fairly good rating which is a good sign. He had a little setback when he was nearly ready to race in May so we backed off him.”

Waller said Marden probably appreciated being out in clear galloping room.

“They didn’t go that quick and he needs a bit of room, I think that’s what beat him in his last start when he got hemmed up,” Waller said.

Marden, who was having just his third start in Australia, was ridden by Glyn Schofield who had little concerns about being posted three wide during the run.

“They were going steady and the last place you want to be on a long-striding horse is back in amongst them and checking,” Schofield said.

“He’s still learning but it was a nice strong win.”
