Winning Trainer: Paul Preusker

Targetting Ballarat Cup: "I always like having the right horse for the right job, and it's only now that I thought about targeting the race."

What made Captain Envious that right horse: "He's got that blistering turn of foot. He's turned into a nice horse, handles wet and dry. I thought let's have a go here. I didn't want to stay him out this prep, so 2000 metres ticked the box."

What does 2024 look like: "We won't get too keen. We'll just digest it. He's a horse that will get over a bit more ground. It was a matter of getting some points. Today was good for that."

Warrnambool Cup or aim higher: "Probably raise it a bit. One step at a time."

Winning Jockey: Michael Dee

Relished the conditions: "He quickened up like it was a good track. He ploughed through that. He was running away from them on the line and he took time to pull him up. It was a super effort."

Race shape: "There was a little more speed than I thought. He didn't jump the cleanest as well. He ended up positioning further back than we planned. As the races had been planning out, I wanted to stay on the fence, but that wasn't going to eventuate for us, so I ended up peeling him out, he took off, and he did the rest."
