Arab Dawn was settled at the tail of the field by jockey Christian Reith in the early stages of the Parramatta Cup, while Hippopus took up the running and made sure that the race was run at a genuine clip.

Reith elected to ride Arab Dawn for luck coming around the turn and the Dalakhani gelding received a dream run along the rail before he quickly put paid to his rivals in the final stages of the race.

Arab Dawn was disappointing when he made his Australian racing debut in the Gardenia Handicap (1600m), but trainer John O’Shea was confident that the imported stayer would produce a much better effort on a dry track in the Parramatta Cup.

“He hasn’t been here a long time, but he has given every indication that he has a nice future,” O’Shea said.

“His work has been first class.

“The information we had on him when he arrived was that he would appreciate firmer ground and it appears that is the case.

“He will just go along a traditional path until he gets to a run like a Manion and we will just poke along.

“He might be a Metrop horse in the spring.”

Reith gave Arab Dawn an absolute peach of a ride in the Parramatta Cup and the talented hoop said that he was pleased to receive another opportunity wearing the Godolphin blue.

He was quick to pay credit to the performance of Arab Drawn and he said that the talented stayer took him everywhere that he needed to go during the race.

“It is good to be back in the colours,” Reith said.

“Today was just all horse and all I had to do was find him the runs and he did the rest.

“He gave me a lovely feel in the run and the breaks just came out way.

“They were of the opinion that he resented the tongue tie last start and the horse was a little bit fresh today, but he still go in a good rhythm.

“His acceleration was explosive, he is a horse that has a lot ahead of him and I think he has big things in his sights.”

Allergic received no luck in running, but he was still able to find the line strongly in the final stages to deliver Godolphin a Parramatta Cup quinella.
