Settling midfield under Craig Williams, Tally ($13) flashed late to claim He Ekscels ($21) by a short-half-head with Muraaqeb ($6) a half-neck away third.
Godolphin racing and bloodstock manager Jason Walsh said Tally was a great horse for the stable, landing his eighth win from 34 starts and pushing through $1 million prize money barrier.
“We probably expected more from him at Flemington but the ground might have been a bit fast for him there but he's bounced back today,” Walsh said.
“These horses that have had a number of seasons with us, the team develops a great affinity with them and it's great to see him win another feature stakes race.”
Walsh said a trip to Perth was under consideration for six-year-old.
But Walsh said nothing was set in stone.
“He's got nothing more to prove to us,” Walsh said.
“He's a million-dollar stakes earner, a fantastic horse and one we're very proud of.”
