Exciting Nicconi gelding Nikohli Beagle made it three wins from three starts for the Austin stable when running away with a 1200m Class 3 at Nowra on 31 December.

It was a stressful time for connections when he had to be re-plated behind the barrier and was a little agitated by the time he loaded. There were sighs of relief all round when he jumped well from his wide barrier and the favourite was right in the mix.

Jockey Jess Taylor settled him behind the leader in third spot before peeling out in the straight and sprinting quickly on the Soft 7 to win by a widening two lengths.

A great ride and a great run - congratulations to everyone!
