Gai Waterhouse prefers the Coolmore Stud Stakes at the end of the Melbourne spring carnival over the Golden Rose as a Group 1 target for Bull Point. The talented two-year-old lived up to his short price at Rosehill today, easily accounting for his rivals by three lengths in the opening race.

"Anyone who watches on the television he never went out of second gear, he jumped with them, he got in to a lovely rhythm, came around the turn a bit wide and then extended his lead, it was great to watch," she said.

"He won't head to the Golden Rose, I've got enough Golden Rose horses, he will go on to some of the spring sprinting races for the three-year-olds and hopefully he will end up in the Coolmore (Stud Stakes)."

Bull Point has now won two of his three career starts and certainly wasn't disgraced when second to the unbeaten Eurozone a fortnight ago.

"He really ran through the line, he felt the other day, I know nothing went right, I'm not making excuses, but in the straight he just didn't feel at all like he was hitting the line for me but today he did, that is what I expected of the horse, he has got a good future, I am walking away from today a lot happier, he has shown what he can do," said jockey Nash Rawiller.

"We jumped a little better and I learnt something the other day, digging him to go forward wasn't the go.

"Had he missed the kick again today I would have been happy to leave him alone, settle at the back and then wait for his turn of foot."
