Having claimed a strong barrier trial at Cranbourne in January, the Choisir colt had actually drifted to a quote of $12 when lining up in the stalls, but managed to produce a blistering run to lead for a good portion of the race and finish a half-a-length in front of Orujo.

Trainer Steve Richards was noticeably taken back by the resounding result, and summed up his joy between tears immediately following the race.

“We’ve had a bad year and we’ve put a lot of work into this horse” Richards said.

”A couple of the guys wanted me to go to the sales in New Zealand recently and I just couldn’t leave this horse even for four or five days.

“We pulled this off today and I’m really wrapped for the owners and the connections.

“We’ve got a lot of good clients, thanks to Steven King (jockey) and the team.”

Electing to stay away from the main pack and hug the rails early, Marcado received a sensational ride from Steven King, whose choice to kick with a few hundred metres to run was justified when sustaining to the line.

Peter Snowden-trained Orujo was the undoubtable market mover in final moments of betting, quickly cutting from a quote of $11 to jump equal second-favourite at odds of 6-1.

Having placed fifth in his only prior event, the Flemington Equine Clinic Plate (1000m) at Caulfield on November 30th, Orujo came close to rewarding punters’ faith, however left a last-ditch sprint a little too late. is currently offering all new punters a free bet of up to $250 just for signing up!
