Gingernuts was settled towards the tail of the field in the early stages of the Rosehill Guineas, but jockey Opie Bosson knew that the New Zealand Derby winner would have no trouble running out the trip and he got going a long way from home.

The Iffraaj quickly found the lead and he looked as though he tired in the final 100 metres, but he already had the race won and he delivered the Kiwis yet another Group 1 victory in Australia.

Gingernuts was not included in the original entries for the 2017 Australian Derby, but co-trainer Jamie Richards confirmed that connections will pay the late-entry fee and he believes that his star galloper will be very tough to beat in the Group 1 event at Royal Randwick in a fortnight.

“It is huge and it was a great effort,” Richards said.

“It has been a long day waiting for this and watching Winx.

“I am really pleased for the team at home.

“David brought the horse at the Ready To Run Sale and didn’t pay a lot for him, so we syndicated him with some clients of ours.

“They have had a whirlwind ride and it is great for the industry when horses like this can step-up.

“His last gallop before he came over was on a track similar to this and he got through it really well.

“Race pressure is a lot different, but he just seems to go in anything and since we stepped him up to 2000 metres he has really come right.

“He looks like he is going to be tough to beat in two weeks time.

“It is a great buzz and it is just great to be apart of it.”

Gingernuts has now recorded three wins on the trot after taking out the Group 2 Avondale Guineas (2100m) at Ellerslie on February 18 and the Group 1 New Zealand Derby (2400m) at the same venue on March 4 before his Australian Derby win this afternoon.

Inference looked to be struggling at the top of the straight, but he eventually got going in the final 200 metres to run a gallant second.
