An astute piece of placement by trainer combined with a perfect ride has resulted in pulling off a successful Sydney raid, when running out a ready winner of a BenchMark 78 Handicap over a mile at on Saturday.

The son of was in a stalking position throughout as favourite Nana's Wish and Canadian Ruler set moderate fractions up front, and pounced when Melham pressed the go- to a dogged victory.

Ceerseven had previously won at over 1600m in BenchMark 70 company and despite believing the four-year-old gelding will be seen to better effect over further in the future, trainer Freedman identified the Sydney target and was duly rewarded with his first Sydney success.

“It looked a great race for him, being a three and four-year-old 78 mile,” Freedman said.

“He came up on Thursday night and it was a nice little rise in grade for him. He came off a very restricted race at Moonee Valley but he was impressive and he's a horse with a bit of upside.

“He is a horse that is still maturing and we thought a trip away from home would harden him a bit.

“He might be just off the top tier Country Cup horse going forward for us, but at the moment we will race him through the ratings and see where he ends up.”
