His all-the-way victory as the $1.50 favourite over $8 equal second fancy Machlani extended his winning streak to four for trainer Debra Lewis and master reinsman Chris Lewis.
The son of champion sire Bettors Delight is well and truly on the path to developing into a candidate for the rich summer carnival feature events at Gloucester Park. He has raced only 17 times for seven wins and two placings for earnings of $73,339.
