Vastly improved Tversky booked himself a place on the big stage on Melbourne Cup day with his fourth-straight win at Doomben.
Sent out favourite, Tversky ($2.60) showed plenty of pace and then went away in the straight to beat Niccanova ($7) by 1-1/4 lengths with a half length to Cannyescent ($5) in the Rostron Carlyle Rojas Handicap.
The gelding has gone from an average restricted-class horse to being the star Brisbane sprinter in the past two months.
Trainer Jack Duncan now has his sights firmly on a trip to Melbourne with Tversky who took his overall record to eight wins from 18 starts.
“We will give him a little ease and his next start will probably be a 1200-metre race at Flemington on Melbourne Cup day (November 6). I think he is up to Melbourne spring class,” Duncan said.
“I think he is up to Melbourne racing and he is promising,” he said.
