After settling at the tail of the nine horse field, Osborne Bulls, the $3.30 favourite, came to the outside in the straight under Craig Williams to score a short-head win over Land Of Plenty ($19) with Brave Song ($4.20) 1-1/2 lengths away third.
Williams said Reg Fleming, in charge of Melbourne's Godolphin yard, had told him all he needed to do was point Osborne Bulls at the winning post and that he'd do the rest.
“He's done a really good job because when we go back and look at this meeting it's been very hard for horses to make ground,” Williams said.
“I put him into the race a lot earlier than I wanted to as I had to make sure we had no excuses.
“He was able to sustain a long run and was really good.”
