"I was a bit worried when the barriers came out that he was towards the outside and I was even more worried in the run when he was three or four wide the entire trip.
"But Jimmy Orman said that it was his best ride coming into today so he's a progressive type of horse for the Wanless family. We've trained winner for them, Ron and Judy.
"But they've been very patient with him. He's taken a bit of time, he has an unusual action but he's won four-from-four today so really pleased for the owners, the staff at home and Jimmy will be glad that one is over.
"He's by So You Think so you'd think he'd get 2000 metres on his ear. But he can handle the wet. That was the bonus for us today and he's a progressive type.
"Lovely looking horse and that is the best he's looked today with a few little dapples on him. Well done to everyone concerned.
Winning Jockey: James Orman
"It was a good win and he's been putting them away quite easily at midweek grade.
"A big step up here today but he's gave me the feel of a really good horse today. Maybe he got through the track better than everything else. He's a progressive horse."
