Adam Durrant has collected a double after Zuccheros has won with a brilliant finish from last. After three solid runs in his new stable, Zuccheros a consistent back-marker appeared to have his work cut out, racing some distance from the on-speed brigade.
As Via Laurentina and Fathnoxious battled each other on-speed the pressure took its toll, splitting the field with Pike showing why he’s the best rider in the state, sliding through the inside of the field.
Next Contestant also finished well from rearward whilst Civil Rights was caught wide again without cover, but brave enough to claim third.
Zuccheros won in 1.29.89 and by a short neck, to claim his fourth win from 18 starts.
