Honest Truth started a hot favourite after two runaway barrier trial wins and ran up to his boom with an effortless win over 900 metres to give Thompson his first win ner since he took charge of the Nathan Tinkler-owned stable from Jason Coyle last week.

Thompson spoke to Chris Scholtz after the win and outlined plans to send Honest Truth to Melbourne where he will set for the Group One Cpolmore Stud Stakes at Flemington on October 29.


Honest Truth was a $240,000 Inglis Easter purchase by the Patinack team after pinhooker Robyn Wise secured him for $30,000 as a Magic Millions weanling in 2007.
