He’s Your Man has stormed home to win the Group 3 Kingston Town Classic for 2014.
Kingdoms was impressive in second, 1.3 lengths behind, while Deane Martin finished third.
Race favourites La Amistad and Greatwood both failed to find their form in the 2000m and finished 7th and 13th respectively.
“It is good to see him back on track,” trainer Chris Waller said of He’s Your Man after the race.
“Today we took the gamble that he would settle a bit closer to the pace and he ended up with a beautiful ride, which wins races.
“It was good to see him show that acceleration after having a nice easy run.”
