Chris Waller-trained colt Lean Mean Machine Horseform , winner of the Sires’ Produce Stakes (Gr 2, 1350m) at Doomben in May, scored an impressive first-up win. He settled back in third last place in the 11-horse field, tracking a solid pace. He looked for an inside run on straightening, finally got a split at the 250m and he then ran on strongly to score impressively.

Quality colt Graff Horseform was caught midfield and wide from his outside barrier (11). He improved (still deep) to be fifth at the home turn. He moved up quickly at the 100m and then fought gamely for second after a difficult trip, his first defeat in four starts.

Jonker Horseform showed good early pace to lead, was pressured in the mid-stages, and he did well in holding of for third at his second run this preparation after leading to the 100m.

Zousain Horseform settled in eighth place, one of the rails, went widest of all rounding the home turn, got to fifth at the 200m and kept battling on nicely for (3.3 lengths) fourth in a sound effort at his first start since his second in the J J Atkins Stakes (Gr 1, 1600m) at Doomben in June.
