THINK IT OVER winning the Tab Verry Elleegant Stakes at Randwick in Australia
THINK IT OVER winning the Tab Verry Elleegant Stakes at Randwick in Australia Picture: Steve Hart

Nash Rawiller (Think It Over): "He brings the best out of me, that's for sure.

"He is one of those horses you get so much confidence riding and I love riding for Kerry. He always give me the confidence to be confident on him.

"He never likes shifty ground but today, I asked Zac Lloyd earlier what it was like down the side and he said his was a wet tracker but it didn't miss a beat.

"I kept that in mind and you go out two or three horses (wide) and that is where everyone is trying to get to.

"We were just able to slide through and clear enough where we wanted to get to.

"I got a touch excited as he's bloody hard to run down but without going for him I saved four lengths and full of running at the top of the straight.

"A long run home at Randwick but when he heard her (Fangirl) coming he found again and nothing was going to go past him today. Good to get another Group One on him."

James Mcdonald (Fangirl): "She ran super. She made a good surge into the race. The track is deteriorating through the day. She ran bravely."

Tim Clark (Lindermann): "Really good performance. He was obviously unlucky first up. He has put in another really good performance. He's building nicely."

Tom Marquand (Cascadian): "He has run massive. During the run we were dictated to by the mare so it made it a bit tougher."

Zac Lloyd (Arapaho): "Fantastic run. Travelled into the race nicely. Was good through the line so progressing going forward."

Regan Bayliss (Just Fine): "Not sure how much he handled that ground."

Jason Collett (Navajo Peak): "Probably travelled a bit strongly. Then when it was time to quicken he hit a flat spot and battled away in the straight."

Tyler Schiller (Athabascan): "Great return. He had a bit of freshness in his legs today. He looks like he is in for a good prep."
