Despite being yet to taste anything but success, Russian Revolution was forgotten in Roman Consul Stakes betting markets as punters focused their attention on Astern and Golden Slipper winner Capitalist.

Jumping from the gates well, Russian Revolution was immediately led to the front of the field by jockey Kerrin McEvoy and settled into a good rhythm alongside Mount Panorama.

Hugging the rails rounding onto the final straight, the Snitzel colt mustered a big turn of foot and pulled comfortably clear of his rivals; maintaining a strong-enough sprint to beat a fast finishing Astern by half a length.

McEvoy delivered a perfectly-timed ride aboard Russian Revolution to win the Roman Consul Stakes and believes the horse will only improve from the run.

“He’s been improving all the time and he pleased leading into it,” McEvoy said.

“I know it wasn’t just a two horse race and we looked the only speed in the race with Gai’s horse coming out.

“I was able to get it easy through the first three furlongs and then just picked it up and they had to catch me.

“Full credit to the horse, he’s done a great job. It was all guns blazing last 50 but as I said, he’s a quality little colt in his own right and his best is ahead of him for sure.”

Peter Snowden was on hand for Russian Revolution’s impressive win in the Roman Consul Stakes and confirmed that the horse will travel to Melbourne for a tilt at the 2016 Coolmore Stud Stakes (1200m) on Derby Day.

“He did what everyone was frightened today, he led from the front so full credit to him – he beat them fair and square,” Snowden said.

“He ran a great time and there’s no fluke in that, he’s a very talented horse.

“It was pretty obvious we’d lead from that draw and that’s why I elected to run him in this race and not the open race. I just thought he could dictate this race from the front.

“He relaxed really well and he was very good late too, so plenty of upside to a very good colt. Great to see him get that victory over two very smart runners behind him.

“I think the Coolmore is definitely on the cards for Russian Revolution.”

Russian Revolution has posted four wins from as many starts since making his debut in June of this year.
