03/07/02 St. Steven Wins on the Flat
Reigning Nakayama Grand Jump winner St. Steven has shown he's on track for his second successive win in the Hiskens Steeplechase at Moonee Valley after winning a flat race at that track this afternoon.

Trained by John Wheeler, the seven-year-old gelding scored by a length in the AMS Law Handicap (3000m). The son of Hula Town was well in at the weights after a three kilogram claim for apprentice Michelle Payne.

In the run to the line St. Steven was too good holding out Le Thief to win by a length. Randoman was a further two and a half lengths away in third place.

Meanwhile, in other news Frances Houlahan, the training daughter of legendary jumps preparer Jim, said today's steeple winner Sampan Man would probably not back up in Saturday's Grand National.

The $2.90 favourite proved much too good in the two mile novice event winning by eight lengths.

Sampan Man looked like having a great battle when he came to the last fighting out the finish with the Eric Musgrove trained Pooky Bear, before that runner fell at the final obstacle.

The race turned out to be a case of the last one standing with only five of the original ten runners able to finish the race. Two horses fell, one lost the rider while another two failed to finish.
