Another Wil

(-125) has made a mess of his rivals in the Group 3 Prelude (1500m) at on Saturday afternoon, booking his ticket to the (1600m) next weekend.

The -trained gelding put the writing on the wall with a hat-trick of wins to begin the campaign, stamping himself as a possible star on the rise heading into Saturday's Doncaster Prelude as an odds-on commodity.

The win was never in doubt after the jump, with taking luck out of the equation to sit outside the leader throughout the 1500m journey.

Amor Victorious (+800) rolled along at a moderate clip, allowing the favourite to sit on his hammer every step of the way.

Jamie Kah only pulled the whip with 300m to go, and in a flash, the son of Street Boss had put his rivals to the sword.

(+2500) and last year's winner (+4000) put some value in exotics for trifecta and first four players, but they were simply no match for Another Wil in the concluding stages.

Stable representative Johann Gerard-Dubord was on track to discuss the win of Another Wil and his chances moving into next weekend.

“Very good,” said Gerard-Dubord.

“He still does a lot wrong. Pre-race, that's him. He's very energetic. But he keeps raising the bar. There's a lot more to come. He's got a very good racing style. He puts himself there on-speed. The team at have done a great job with him. He's had a faultless preparation and hopefully there's more to come.

“He's fit. It's just about keeping him fresh and happy and making sure he recovers well from that. The extra 100m next week on a bigger track will only suit him.

“There's a drop of rain predicted, that won't hurt him. He's won on a heavy track. He'll have a light weight there, Jamie Kah will stick with him. He should be a good chance.”
Jamie Kah has taken the reins every start of the preparation and believes there is more to come from Another Wil.

“I thought he was a freak, and he is one,” said Kah.

“It's nice to see him do that.

“He keeps stepping up and I still think we haven't got anywhere near his peak yet. So bring it on (the Doncaster).”

Another Wil is now a firm +250 favourite for the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) on April 6.
