It was the Villiers winner Crack Me Up back in Sydney and he showed he's on target for the Doncaster Mile with an impressive win.
Find out what the jockeys made of their runs in the Group 3 Liverpool City Cup at Royal Randwick.
Jason Collett (Crack Me Up): “Gee he looked a million dollars. We went to the start and he wasn’t sweating up one bit. On a performance like that, I’m not sure what sort of improvement there is in him because he looked really well today, but getting up to the mile here he’s done it before in that sort of race so he will be one to look out for.”

Jeff Lloyd (Care To Think): “He ran well. He over-raced as he always does. I was happy with the run, he got cover but just wanted the last 100m. He’s gone up a lot in the weights so it was a great run.”
Josh Parr (Burning Passion): “Terrific first up run. Very pleased with him going forward.”
Kerrin McEvoy (Egg Tart): “Very good run. Good to see her back with some nice ground, she’s finished off very well.”
Jay Ford (Oxford Poet): “I thought he bounced back really well in that grade. He boxed on strong.”
Tye Angland (Interlocuter): “I thought it was a good first up run. Just had to do a little bit of work around the corner, it just showed a little bit late. He’ll improve a lot off that.”
Glyn Schofield (McCreery): “Couldn’t follow that hot speed early but finished off well.”
Brenton Avdulla (Artlee): “He ran okay. Chimed into the race but just blew out over the last furlong.”
Jess Taylor (Burradoo): “Really good run for him, just a little bit outclassed.”
Hugh Bowman (Mackintosh): “Had a lovely run but his best trip is a bit further. Disappointing but he’ll go better over further.”
Tim Clark (Arbeitsam): “He ran good, just didn’t have any luck. Pay to forgive.”
Andrew Adkins (Boss Lane): “Didn’t bounce as good as he usually does. Travelled really well, just didn’t appreciate horses cluttering him around the home turn. Little bit disappointing.”
