Sky Doomben highlights

Sky Racing highlights from the Brisbane Racing Club's meeting at Doomben on Saturday:

Group 3 XXXX Dry Chairman's Handicap (2000m)

1st - Le Juge - Chris Waller - Michael Cahill

2nd - Savacool - Chris Waller - Mark Du Plessis

3rd - Another Dollar - Chris Waller - Ryan Maloney

Assistant Trainer - Paul Shailer

"This horse this time last year won seven of nine, its been a while out of the winners circle when he was racing in Group One's in Sydney, but back in Queensland drop in weight and a nice barrier he did the job beautifully."

"I think we had the first four of five in the race Bringham Rocks, Alward were really good runs on top of the first three, i was trying to watch them all at once which was a bit of a challenge."

"Of all the runners we thought Le Juge was the most likely, his work at home has been brilliant he loves this time of year in Queensland everything seemed to fall in place in the run too."

"Chris (Waller) has always been a big supporter of Michael (Cahill) and you can tell why when he rides them like that, always good to have him on."

Jockey Comments - Michael Cahill

"He's a funny horse to ride he keeps you on your toes, we were lucky there was a strong tempo because he wanted to pull a bit in the run but finally settled."

"From there everything really went our way I was able to get him off the fence a the right time and he strode up really boldy in the straight and smashed the line."

"Paul (Shailer) was very keen on his chances with the weight drop and good draw and I'm glad i was able to do the rest."

Group 3 TAB Fred Best Classic (1350m)

1st - Dawn Passage - Gai Waterhouse & Adrian Bott - Brad Stewart

2nd - Exhilarates - James Cummings - Larry Cassidy

3rd - Subpoenaed - Chris Waller - Michael Cahill

Trainer Comments - Adrian Bott

"He's racing in great form he's learnt how to race since his last preparation, it was actually good to see him have to go forward and do a but of work early and still win comfortably."

"We always planned for the week backup into the Stradbroke, we got him up to Chris Munce's stables nice and early where he obviously settled in well and he'll just have a nice light week leading into next Saturday."

"Physically he's come a long way but mentally he's come even further, he's much more tractable in his runs has tactical speed and has shown he can stretch out in trip."

"He just used to get a bit far back as a young horse and as we just saw he has the versatility to race on speed, which opens up options for him."

"I think Eagle farm should suit him down to the ground next week, if we can draw the centre or wider keep him off the fence he should really enjoy the open spaces."

Stable Representative - Chris Munce

"It was pretty typical of Gai's (Waterhouse) horses strong up on the speed and the touch of class is always nice too."

"He's been very well mannered for a young colt since he's been in our care and I couldn't be more impressed of the style of horse he is, lovely long stridig three-year-old that will only get better."

"He'll get in really well at the weights for the Stradbroke and I certainly wouldn't rule him out as a winning hope."

"Really proud of my two runners, I think Stampe and Scathing were fourth and fifth, the best of the locals."

"Stampe especially has been up for a long time and keeps putting in, he's going to be a serious horse."

Jockey Comments - Brad Stewart

"I came here with a good book of rides and you always want to capatilise on that and this colt here was just a notch above."

"I didn't really want to sit outside the leader but my hand was forced a little, but he was just so composed I knew I had it won at the top of the straight."

"I won't be able to ride him in the Stradbroke because of the weight, but I'd love to be on him, Gai (Waterhouse) and Adrian (Bott) have a good one here."
