I think for a country-based trainer, Darren Weir has proven to be up their with the best. He’s not a stable that has yet made a concerted effort with 2YO and 3YO races. If he went down that path he’d prove to be just as good as any other big name trainer.

Jamaican Rain could be a Group 1 contender

Point well made, Geoff. The headline was more about highlighting this was the race Winx won to commence her winning streak. There’s no way The Bostonian will be able to replicate her in any way.

Saturday preview: The Bostonian can follow in footsteps of Winx

He’s not only the best at getting the most out of a horse, but he’s also brilliant at placing them in the right races. Had every right to put Nature Strip in the paddock for a while, but he impressed me on Saturday. Looks a likely topline sprinter.

Is there anything Darren Weir can't do?
