Alyasaat, with some decent classic form to his name, was expected to win a bit easier, but Mathew de Kock pointed out: “He’s a young horse, raced under top weight and won as he liked, there wasn’t any pressure. It was a good win considering 1400m is too short for him.”

Alyaasaat also holds and entry to the Champions Challenge and the KZN Guineas and Mat said: “We’ll keeop options option for now.”
