Harry Coffey on Vianden wins the Great Western Cup from Christine Puls and Now and Zen.

A great training performance from Swan Hill trainer Austy Coffey, saw ‘Cups King’ Vianden add the 1950-metre Seppelt Great Western Cup to his collection – 48 hours after winning the Hanging Rock Cup.
The six-year-old was given a beautiful ride by regular jockey Harry Coffey, camping behind a hot speed set by Survived, No Fairy and Lachie’s A Star. Vianden looked to be cruising at the 600-metre mark, as most of his rivals began to come off the bit.
Upon straightening, the son of Von Costa De Hero drove through and took the saloon passage.
Vianden had to dig deep over the concluding stages, with Now And Zen flashing home.
However, Vianden still had enough in hand to score by a half-length on the post. Vianden looks to have the Country Horse Of The Year award all sewn up, as he now boasts 2016 and 2017 Nhill Cups, 2016 and 2017 Wycheproof Cups and 2018 Burrumbeet, Hanging Rock and Great Western cups.
What a magnificent effort from Team Coffey. Well done to all involved.

Milwaukee tough
Stawell trainer Doug Whitworth’s Milwaukee Brave put his best foot forward with a strong win at Great Western.
The four-year-old took his place in a 1600-metre maiden plate, with Declan Bates in the saddle.
The in-form Bates bounced Milwaukee Brave straight to the lead, dictating early proceedings.
The son of Shinzig travelled sweetly, then was given full bore upon straightening. Milwaukee Brave gave a strong kick, eventually dashing clear to score by three lengths.
It was Milwaukee Brave’s first win in eight starts, and given the strength of his win, he is up and about at the right time of year.
Caulfield win

Horsham jockey Christine Puls and Hamilton trainer Darren Kolpin combined for a memorable win at Caulfield on Saturday.
Kolpin’s mare Jester Halo contested the 1400-metre Michael McMahon Plate at benchmark-84 level.
A great ride from Puls saw Jester Halo come home with a sweeping run to score in a good performance by three-quarters of a length.
