Speaking about the victory, Fogden said: "That was a bit exciting. I was a little bit worried there for a little bit, I thought he might have been over-racing but he kept true to the task and stuck on nicely.

"He travelled down to (Sydney trainer) Gerald (Ryan's) last week and he has just settled in so well. He is quite a gentleman really, I was really pleased with him today."

Options still open

Fogden admitted she wasn't sure how Best Of Bordeaux, a $425,000 yearling purchase raced by the Fung family of Aquis Farm fame and breeder Gerry Harvey, would line up against the Sydney youngsters but the $5 million feature is now a serious target.

The young trainer is still weighing up the best way to get there with the Group 2 Skyline Stakes over 1200 metres at Randwick on 26th February a possibility.
