“Great day. Very satisfying. Obviously the main one was Mazu so to get that job done was a relief and a big result.

“Two win a Group 2 and onto a treble for the day was great. It’s fantastic.

On the horse: “They went a nice speed but not too fast. I was able to latch on and stay within striking distance at the 600. Got a nice cart up and it was a matter of counting to ten.”
