Winning Trainer: Joe Pride

On Mazu getting a suitable wet track: "He had a wet track in the TJ (TJ Smith Stakes) but to be fair to him he was a month between runs off the back of a setback, not getting to run in The Galaxy. Today he was just that little bit harder and fitter and it was a lovely ride from Jamie. It was good, a good result."

Plan with him: "Queensland would be the plan again. I feel like obviously we've got him back on track now. He probably does need wet tracks to do his very best.

"And I'm really happy there and a big thank you to Leeshelle Small, who is my apprentice. She has been riding this horse all preparation and she's done a fantastic job with him because he's a difficult horse and she's really got him to settle really well. So a big thanks to her."

Winning Jockey: Jamie Kah

On bringing up a race-to-race double after Kintyre won previous on protest: "Yeah, things don't always go your way so after the protest went my way I thought 'it might be my day today'."

On Mazu: "He loves it (wet tracks). He's a weird horse because he's got all the ability in the world and then he hit the front like he was going to win by five or six and he pricked his ears and looked at the winning post and he does a lot of things wrong. He's a thinker but he's got the ability when he puts his mind to the job."

Beaten Jockeys:

James McDonald (Aft Cabin): "Good run. He's back on track."

Nash Rawiller (Vilana): "It was a good effort. He kept coming. His best was late."

Tommy Berry (Kalino): "He just struggled in the ground today."

Tyler Schiller (Front Page): "Just too heavy for him."

Adam Hyeronimus (Sinawann): "He ran well. Track conditions were not enjoyable for him. He worked home well enough."

Zac Lloyd (Key Largo): "Just struggled in that surface. I think he ran quite creditably."
