13/04/02 Suit Completes Woodlands Double at Caulfield
Evergreen sprinter Suit has stakes his claims for a possible Goodwood Handicap start in Adelaide after a second straight win at Caulfield today, which provided a double to connections.

Suit scored an impressive win in the listed ATA/Bob Hoysted Handicap at Flemington last start and the seven-year-old continued that form to win today's Primacy Handicap (1100m) on a wet track.

The win drew great praises from winning trainer John Hawkes' stable foreman and son Wayne, who continued to marvel at the longevity of the chestnut son of Procol Harum.

"The win was just all class," Hawkes said. "He's not a wet track but he just proven he was the best horse in the race."

"His previous two starts had been enormous proving the win today was no fluke."

"The form out of the last win has been emphasised at Oakbank as well," Hawkes added.

Hawkes was referring to when Suit at his previous run at Flemington had downed the Alan Bailey trained Libidinious, who then went to Oakbank in South Australia and scored a track record breaking win in the listed Clipsal Stakes.

A decision on the gelding's immediate racing future will be made in the near future, depending on his progress when he pulls up.

"We'd look at races in Adelaide with him," Hawkes said. "He races fresh and always gives 110 per cent."

In the run to the line Suit had got through the soft conditions in good style, and strode clear to win by a length and a half over the Taree visitor Centre Fire. Will He Be was a breath away in third place, while Dalla Vista was just inches away in fourth position.

The win gave Hawkes, jockey Brendan Fenech and the Woodlands Stud Syndicate a winning double after the earlier success of the two-year-old Dextrous.
