Four-year-old gelding Scipio is building a nice form profile as he continued his progression through the grades with a tough win at Sandown on Wednesday.

The son of All Too Hard made it three wins from his past four starts as he took out the four-year-old and up BM64 1000m event.

"It was a commanding performance given he was coming off a freshen up and sat four-deep the trip," trainer Danny O'Brien said.

"Damian (Lane) rode like the best horse in the race and it was nice to see pins his ears back and want to win as he was challenged with 100m to go."
