The Inevitable staked his claim ahead of the Golden Eagle by taking out the first running of the Silver Eagle, fighting out the finish with Fasika.
Nash Rawiller (The Inevitable): "He’s a fighter, my word he’s a little tiger. For his size, his stride is twice as long as you expect it to be. He just covers the ground."
"Congratulations to Scott (Brunton) and his team for coming up and having a crack. He’s a chance for sure (in the Golden Eagle), his heart will take him a long way."
The Inevitable winning the Silver Eagle
Glyn Schofield (Zousain): “We followed the winner everywhere, he just didn’t have a finish at all.”
Jay Ford (Sesar): “I think he has come to the end of his prep. He didn’t have much to offer today.”
Josh Parr (Military Zone): “Nice effort. I ended up in a comfortable spot. The speed was strong though and it may well of just taken away some of his dash away from him.”
Jason Collett (Behemoth): “Good run. The start was costly but finished off well.”
Glen Boss (Jonker): “He would make a nice gelding.”
Brenton Avdulla (Kapajack): “He ran good. I was sitting on the winner’s back on the point of the corner, he just ran out of puff though.”
Robbie Dolan (Legend Of Condor): “Just a bit tough for him. He is probably a six furlong horse as well.”
Martin Harley (Buffalo River): “Disappointing really. We had to use up a bit of energy early. When he parked up in second he was breathing good and relaxing good. I knew though he wasn’t going to give me anything off the final bend so I don’t know, maybe we can draw a line through it.”
Tim Clark (Mizzy): “She ran great. She began well and I got my spot in behind the leaders. She travelled great, ran accordingly and is doing a good job this time in.”
Rachel King (Fasika): “Huge run. We had to pop off the back of Mizzy there who wasn’t taking us into the race when I wanted to. She’s run a really good race and is ready for three weeks' time.”
Andrew Adkins (Madam Rouge): “Really good run. She settled nicely on a good tempo. She got through and hit the line really strong. She’s come back in really good order.”
