Winning Trainer: Chris Munce

"Great thrill. Really big thrill. So much goes into a horse like this. I really targeted this race.

"I said to the owners 'be patient', I just want to make sure I get him in there with a light weight and I'm so pleased that it was wet this morning.

"Everything sort of went to plan. I gave Brock very strict instructions. I didn't want him getting caught wide on the corner here - it is a tight little track. He rode him fantastic and the horse delivered.

"I think the key to him is that he's not a big horse (and) he's not good at carrying weight so that is why I wanted to get him in with the light weight here today.

"If I had a stable full of horses like this guy I'd be very happy because he puts in every time he goes to the race.

"He (Our Intruigue) had good form. I'm good mates with Lachie (from the Waller stable) and he said his horse will be hard to beat. I said to him that if my horse gets any luck in running he'll be a chance as well so it has worked out well."

Winning Jockey: Brock Ryan

"Had a little bit of a sticky gate to contend with but he (Munce) prepped me up on how to ride this racetrack and ti worked out exactly like he said.

"My first time here and first ride here to it was good to get some pointers and lucky it worked out.

"We started from a sticky gate so I didn't want to just drag him out the back straight away. Jockeyed early and found the back of Berdibek which was nice. Then it popped over the fence and I had a a lovely cart into the race. The second horse just took me everywhere.

"Got him out into the middle of that track and let down.

"Had a nice feel for him. He's a lovely ride, he's a dream to ride. You put him anywhere and he comes back underneath you. He's a pretty easy ride.

"A couple of my horses have drawn badly today but I'm sort of happy about that now. The track has got a bit of juice in it and it is starting to chop out on the corner so I'd say it is closer to a Soft 6."
