Star Of The Seas was having his seventh start in the Catanach's Handicap (1350m) on Saturday and travelled just behind the speed for before balancing up in the straight and getting the better of Mahalangur to by 1-3/4 lengths.

“It was a nice ride from Kerrin. He was three-wide but he wasn't too far away and I think that might be important today,” Waller said.

“Certainly that last 100 metres the race didn't change complexion much.
