A long-range plan to target the Mile is a step closer after swept to victory in the George to secure his spot in next month's Group One showpiece.

Trainer had modest aspirations pre-race, hoping Think It Over could be competitive in the weight-for-age event given he would drop to just 52kg under the handicap conditions of the Doncaster.

“Coming into today I just thought, I need him to run well and if he's a couple of lengths from them I'll be thrilled, taking seven kilos off him into the Doncaster,” Parker said.

“To win it, sensational.”

Parker said Think It Over, a son of brilliant galloper , had been slow to mature but had made vast improvement this campaign, which has already yielded two stakes wins and a stakes placing.

“He's just been a great ride, this bloke. To watch him mature and turn into the racehorse he has has been pleasurable for the whole team,” Parker said.

Think It Over (+2500) emerged from the pack late to run down (+1600) with (+400) close-up in third.

Winning has no doubt Think It Over will be a live Doncaster chance.

“He's going to put himself right into contention because that's the kind of horse you need to win a Doncaster, he's very strong at the end of a trip,” Boss said.

Favourite Funstar finished eighth and jockey said the race wasn't run to suit her.
