Classy sprinter Trapeze Artist Horseform  improved on his first-up fourth in the Expressway Stakes (Gr 2, 1200m) at Rosehill on February 2 to record his fourth Group 1 victory here.

He began well and soon crossed to take the lead. He then set a smart tempo, held a clear advantage shortly after turning for home and was not threatened from that point to win impressively.

Shoals Horseform  was smartly away, settled in fourth place, got to second at the 200m and kept fighting on well to hold that position without troubling the winner.

Prompt Response Horseform  had a nice trip in third place on the rails and did well on holding on to take the minor placing, advancing significantly in class here.

Cool Passion Horseform  raced outside the leader and eventual winner and battled on nicely for (2.5 lengths) fourth.

Pierata Horseform  was last to the home turn and made late ground for (2.7 lengths) fifth, the three-year-old Brutal Horseform  did well fighting on for (2.9 lengths) sixth while the favourite Kementari raced below his best at his first run back, just battling on in the straight after being in fifth place to finish (3 lengths) last in the seven-horse field.
