Nolan enjoys Roma Cup success with Blow A Kiss

TRAINER Michael Nolan enjoyed a three-track winning treble on Saturday which included Blow A Kiss' success in the $50,000 XXXX Gold Roma Cup.

Nolan's first shot at the Roma Cup turned out to be a victorious one when jockey Adam Best piloted Blow A Kiss ($5.90) to a three-quarter length triumph in the 1640-metre feature over Toowoomba Cup winner Musashi of Mieko ($6), with $5.50 chance Satch close behind in third.

That win was book-ended by victory to Sister Magic in race one at Eagle Farm and a dead-heat win by Sniff in the Toowoomba West Special School Maiden Plate (1625m) at Clifford Park on Saturday night.

The Roma Cup was delayed by more than 30 minutes as a thunderstorm fell on Bassett Park and the crowd of about 8000 spectators but the wait was more than worth it for Nolan, Best and the owners of Blow A Kiss.

Watching on television at Eagle Farm, Nolan thought leader Blow A Kiss was getting reeled in at the final bend but was impressed with how the six-year-old gelding fought hard for the win.

"I was in Brisbane so I wasn't out there. I watched it on the TV. It was a big thrill. It was certainly a big thrill for the owners," Nolan said. "I just thought both horse and rider did a great job."

Blow A Kiss will have a start in Brisbane in two weeks before a likely spell.

Meanwhile, Toowoomba trainer Ducky Baker's decision to bypass the Roma Cup with Jet Style in favour of a run at Eagle Farm was justified when the gelding took out the $80,000 Listed Beach House Bar and Grill Brisbane Handicap over 1600 metres on Saturday.
