Race 1: Fillies & Mares Class 6 Plate -1400m 1st - Charvicky; 2nd - Montana Hilton; 3rd - Brief Me
Trainer Rob Heathcote: “That’s the first win here at Eagle Farm and it’s become a little bit of a thing that it’s like a voodoo track for her, but she’d been so unlucky on so many occasions. But it’s a win where I give so much credit to a really top rider in Damian Browne. He’s in the best three in Queensland without a doubt. That’s his first ride on her and you know I couldn’t have picked her up and placed her where he put her on the way I asked him how to ride her. Just a lovely ride. She’s been here eighteen times and of those, she’s been unlucky in eight or ten of them. On her run the other day, her closing finish was really good. As I said to Damian before the race, the pattern or the tempo so often goes against her because she’s a get-back, run-on style of horse. You know credit to him here today with that track, she got back to second or third last, made her way through the field and hit the line good. I think the track is better than slow.
”Jockey Damian Browne: “I got a pretty good run throughout you know, she seemed to be handling the track pretty well. Rob Heathcote told me she had about 300m of run in her. When the runs come on the corner, she sprinted through very nicely and never really looked like getting beaten. She’s a pretty honest horse and tries very hard and today the race suited her.”PRICE FLUCTUATIONS:Winner (Charvicky): 7.00 out to 8.00.Favourite (Cool Edition): 2.00 out to 2.40. Finished seventh.
