The Tony Pike-trained gelding The Bostonian Horseform ,whose previous trip to Australia yielded victory in the 2018 Sunshine Coast Guineas (Gr 3, 1600m), returned from New Zealand to record his first Group 1 victory here.

He had a nice trip from his good barrier (3), racing in sixth place between runners behind a quick pace.


He got a split halfway down the straight, went to the rails in the closing stages and then fought best to score a narrow but very good win.

It was also a good ride by Michael Cahill. Osborne Bulls Horseform settled back in last place in the 13-horse field, went deep rounding the home turn and kept running on well, failing narrowly by a long-head for second.

Dollar For Dollar Horseform raced outside the leader (Manuel) at a quick tempo, got to the front at the 200m and then fought on gamely for a close-up third after running a bold race.

The favourite Nature Strip Horseform was a bit slow to move, soon improved but was caught three deep (without cover) outside of the leading pair, going at a solid pace and he then kept fighting on in the straight for (1.1 lengths) fourth after a difficult trip.

Outback Barbie Horseform was ninth coming to the home turn and made ground in restricted room for (1.6 lengths) fifth.

Tactical Advantage Horseform also made ground from back in eighth place for sixth (1.7 lengths), while White Moss looked unlucky after being handily placed as she was checked when looking for a run in the straight before finishing (3.2 lengths) ninth.
