Winning Trainer: Ben & JD Hayes (Dom Rhoden speaking)

On the win: "He's been running very well without winning so it's great to get the money today. His rating will go up again off that now so he becomes a little bit difficult to place - there's another benchmark 100 race in three weeks we might have a look at and we might even look at a Tasmanian trip with him.

Winning Jockey: Luke Nolen

On the win: "He doesn't know he got beat at Werribee it was very close - I thought he ran quite well the other day .Back in trip (today) which was probably the query and the week back-up but the boys have done a terrific job - they knew what they had.

On the run: "Ideally I wanted to be a bit closer in the run but he just didn't have the speed to take advantage of the better draw so I had to take my medicine. I thought I could have timed my run a bit better, I ended up getting to the front a bit soon than I ideally anticipated but he was really competitive through the line. I took advantage of the advantage I had then and he held it through the line. Albeit he hasn't won for a while but there's no reason why he can't go and win a couple now placed to advantage.

On the trainers: "JD and Ben and Will and all the boys need a lot of credit, he hasn't run bad it's just taken him a little while to win but they knew what they were doing. I'm still sweating beers out from my trip up the river and reckong I'll be doing it for the next week and a half too feeling as fat as I am.
