Stayed on well to take this. Original quote: "No No Maestro - This will be his first race. Marley has been ready to run for a while and I’ve been waiting for some nice safe ground for him. He’s not flash in his work at home, which I believe is typical of Mahler’s but he’s honest and willing. These races are not always the best to get involved in with a lot of unknowns - just be delighted with a solid run and build from there. Win lose or draw Marley be off on his holidays after this run. 1 1/2 stars."
