Curran scored a well-deserved win with consistent stayer Welcome Stryker in the No Fuss Event Hire Handicap (2400m), Fliedner’s consistent mare Flying Spark won her second race in the My Punter Fillies and Mares Benchmark 64 Handicap, while Julius made it back-to-back wins with frontrunner Dubai King in the Silks Function Centre Handicap (1600m).

Welcome Stryker had raced well without winning in his previous first five starts this campaign, but put it all together on his home track, winning by more than two lengths from Dreaded and Real Jazz.

Flying Spark benefited from a smart ride from Luke Nolen.  

The mare travelled wide in the run, but was close to the speed and she stormed home down the middle of the track to win impressively.

Dubai King gave Julius his first city winner last start and on Wednesday he gave the up-and-coming trainer his first win at Bendigo since he relocated from Warrnambool.

Ridden by Josh Julius’ sister Melissa, Dubai King enjoyed a lovely run in front and established a race-winning lead at the 250m mark.

Our Guarantee made good late ground to run second, but he was never going to reel in Dubai King.
