Three year old gelding One More Cast broke through for an impressive and well deserved win when stepping up to 1600m for the first time this prep at the Sunshine Coast.

Carrying top weight of 59kg’s One More Cast proved too strong for the second and third place horses who both carried 54kg’s.

After leaving barrier two a little awkwardly when contacting the outside barrier partition, jockey Matthew McGillivray had One More Cast travelling back in fifth position and on the rail as they passed the 1300 metre point.

While the race was being run at a moderate tempo early on, Sunday Halo’s jockey decided to make a quick move going up three wide to put pressure on the leaders helping to increase the tempo allowing One More Cast to settle into a nice rhythm.

Aided by the rails run One More Cast gained the breaks needed on entering the home straight gathering in the leader From Now at the 200 hundred metre point before holding off the challenger Wicked Heights by 1.3 lengths.

Congratulations to owners, Mr M A McLean, Mr A Stephenson, Mr C J Wessel, Just Fun Racing, Don't Despair, Mitchell Park Racing, Mr G Sullivan, Mr P J Daniel, Dr R P Williams, Mr T M Forrester, Mr I W Weigh, Mr S J Cresswell, Mr B Clulow.

On this occasion One More Cast was strapped by Donna Fisher.
