Winning Trainer: Ciaron Maher & Dave Eustace (Dave Eustace speaking at Flemington)

"Good ride. To be honest, The Q22 was a complete disaster and probably got the wrong instructions.

"He was held up, never got a run. I think he'd have run a big race that day.

"He showed some good form here and it was nice win."

Plans: "Nothing special. He's a gelding racing in good form and we'll chip away. He'll probably go back to Sydney - he likes wet ground.

"The Metropolitan is the race you'd think to target but there's probably going to be some younger, fresher legs there."

Winning Jockey: Nash Rawiller

"It was just a matter of time, wasn't it. He made a meal of a few sections of the track but I was able to keep him balanced and improve into it.

"He's a horse that felt like he had a fair bit (on), with all due respect to the rest of the field.

"He's obviously coming up here and peaking today like that and then having a good break, I'm sure there is something (for him) in the spring.

Conditions: "For a horse like him it wasn't ideal at all but he just found a way to adapt and full credit to the team. They had him in beautiful order today.

"To me, from what I saw of him last time, he seemed more relaxed and seemed to enjoy the day today. That's how he traveled and that's what won him the race."
