Stirling Grove Wins Schweppes Tonic 1000 On Melbourne Cup Day 2010

The Schweppes Tonic 1000 results looked much as the punters expected, as Stirling Grove powered on home to an impressive first place finish.

The top of the Schweppes Tonic 1000 finishing order was Stirling Grove in first, Belfast Boy in second, and Marmaa taking third.

Stirling Grove took his fourth career win with this run, rocketing down the middle of the track with the rest of the field as the jockeys adjusted for the damage to the track along the rail. This also proved his ability on a soft track, which was unsure before the run.

Belfast Boy may start looking at Listed or Group runs after this second place finish, as he performed admirably against more proven competition.

Last of the placegetters in the Schweppes Tonic 1000 finishing order was Marmaa, but this showed a massive improvement for his handling on wet tracks compared to previous results.
