Tales Of Grimm received a lovely trail on the rail in the early stages of the Scone Cup and he tracked into the race extremely well coming into the turn before the runs opened up for him at the top of the straight.

The Distorted Humor gelding looked as though he had the race won when he hit the front at the 300 metre mark, but Gai Waterhouse –trained Frespanol flew home down the outside and put his nose in front with 100 metres left to run.

Tales Of Grimm appeared to lift when he was headed by Frespanol and the imported galloper fought back late to claim victory in the Scone Cup after he got the bob right on the line.

Sam Kavanagh has had a tough time getting the best out of Tales Of Grimm after he made his Australian racing debut with a victory at Rosehill Gardens on February 7 and the rising trainer said that he was delighted to see the six-year-old deliver on the form that he has shown in trackwork.

“We have had a tough few months and this is a pretty big result,” Kavanagh said.

“We laid this horse out for this three months ago, so it is nice when a plan comes together.

“He has shown us a lot at home and he has had his share of issues, but I have some great mates in this horse and some great supporters of the stable, so I am just thrilled to win a big race for them.”

Jockey Crag Williams was booked to take the ride on Tales Of Grimm following the suspension of regular hoop Kerrin McEvoy and he got not have given the imported galloper a better ride in transit in the early stages of the Scone Cup.

Williams was quick to pay credit to both McEvoy and Kavanagh and he said that he had quickly formed a strong relationship with Tales Of Grimm.

“Sam has obviously done a really good job with him and Kerrin was unable to ride the horse, but he phoned me and told me all about the horse,” Williams said.

“We had a plan going in, but I fell in love with him as soon as I sat on him and he is a lovely horse.

“We got on really together, we got out of the barriers really nicely and into a nice run.

“We actually hit the front and got a little bit lost in front and he has done a really good job to beat the eventual second horse.

“I like his fight and he still has improvement in his mannerisms as well.”

Tales Of Grimm will likely head to the spelling paddock before he returns to racing for a 2015 Spring Racing Carnival campaign.
