The Terry Henderson led OTI Racing had earlier in the day won the Group 2 $400,000 Ladbrokes Herbert Power Stakes (2400m)  with Lord Fandango and the Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Thousand Guineas (1600m) with Aloisia.

Gailo Chop had been working back into form for the Darren Weir stable and the leading trainer said that the Ladbrokes Stakes looked to be the suitable race for the seven year old import.

“The team has done a lot of hard work behind the scenes because he did come to us with an injury,” Weir said.

“He has just been building up to something like that. I thought that every run has been great.”

“I was just waiting for the right day to get him fit enough to get him in front and I guess today was the day.”

“He can go the Cox Plate now. He has done his job at out stable now.”

Weir will now set Gailo Chop to take on champion mare Winx in the Group 1 $3m Ladbrokes Cox Plate (2040m) at The Valley on October 28.

Winning jockey Mark Zahra was bale to set the tempo up front and Gailo Chop was able to hold the strong finish of Johannes Vermeer ($31) with Kiwi galloper Jon Snow ($8.50) also running on for third.
