Reputable's reputation improves

Imported English stayer Reputable looked impressive winning the Ladies’ Day Plate at Caulfield on Thousand Guineas day coming from near last on the turn to win by a neck.

Ridden patiently by Damien Oliver, the baldy faced Reputable charged home to beat Testalux with hurdler Some Are Bent showing surprising pace to finish third after running a cheeky race, while stablemate Makeadreamcometrue flew into fourth after being held up early in the straight.

Formerly trained in England by Luca Cumani, when he was named Gold Option, Reputable has only been in Australia since January.

"We've only had him for a few weeks, but he has showed he is a nice horse,” trainer Danny O'Brien said.

Reputable has now won 4 of his 12 starts, with prizemoney earnings over $82,000.

The first two of his wins were in England at Newmarket and Sandown before an unplaced run in the Group 2 Juddmonte Stakes.

He has now won his last two starts in Australia and is emerging as an impressive staying prospect.

O'Brien will probably give Reputable one more run before putting him away to prepare for an autumn campaign.

Ruputable was the first of a double for O'Brien as he trained the quinella in the final event of the program when Vigor surged past stablemate Geyser Peak to win the 1600m Australis Cup.
