The four-year-old Desmond Koh-trained runner enjoyed a good run in transit, settling sixth on the fence with Keep Away and Mr Raffles setting the early tempo.
Jockey Joao Moreira was able to bring Arowana Dot Com
three wide on the turn and set out after the leaders, and he proved too strong over the concluding stges to hold off a fast finishing Fatkid
in secondand Silveron Wings in third.
Arowana Dot com came into the race with mixed form having won two starts back over the mile before dropping back in distance to run fourth behind The Comedian last start, beaten 8L.
The hussonet gelding has now won an impressive eight races from 15 career starts.
“He is a lovely horse and he tries hard. We all knew he had plenty of class within himself,” said Moreira.
“The instructions of the trainer were to go forward but we had to change the plan as the pace was too fast. Once we turned for home I just got him on the outside and gave him a clear run.
“He just speeded up and he gave me a very good kick back. Well done to Desmond Koh, he has done a great job with this horse,” he said.
