Trainer Chris Waller was pleased to end Rosehill Guineas Day on a winning note.

“Winning races on days like today is always great,” Waller said.

“It’s a great spectacle that’s for sure.”

The trainer revealed his confidence wasn’t sky high prior to the race.

“Second up over 1,200 surprised me a little bit too,” he said.

“(But) they get in that zone and they think they’re winners and they improve”

Waller will look to target Arinosa towards the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara in Brisbane in June.

“I think that race in Queensland would be perfect for her. It’s a 1400 metres race,” Waller said.

Jockey Brenton Avdulla rode Arinosa to victory in the 2013 Birthday Card Stakes.

“It’s really surprsing,” Avdulla admitted.

“I always thought she’d win in town.. but she just kept improving.

“I can’t take much credit for her. She used to be a handful but now she’s just a sweetheart.

“I’m sure she’s got a better race in her now because she just keeps taking the next step.”
