Vinos Choice finally got his favoured conditions, good ground and a two mile chase, at Perth and won under a strong ride from Derek. Although not one of The Two Black Labs' leading lights, Vinos knows how to win and his strong finish up the home straight was impressive. There should be more opportunities for him in the future.
In the same race, Lucky Flight ran better than his finishing position suggests. Jumping well in the main he was harried fr the lead but did settle mid race. He was physically perfect afterwards so we can now build on this run.
Gripper stayed the three mile trip and loved leading the field. He just lacked a finishing speed but his third place was very creditable.
