Trainer Danny O'Brien looks to have a nice progressive horse on his hands with Soar Beyond who was able to overcome traffic issues to claim a dominant victory in the first on Kyneton Cup Day. 

The son of Savabeel finished runner-up on debut, but his electric turn of foot in the closing furlong ensure the Yulong bred and owned progeny would be a maiden no longer. 

Jockey Fred Kersley said he hadn't planned to be near last on the fence, but the young hoop was confident if the breaks came there way the gelding would be in the finish.

"It wasn't ideal in the run, but we were following the favourite and then the gap opened and he sprinted really strongly which was great to see," Kersley said post race.

"Once this horse understands what it is all about he will be a serious horse."
