Jamie Kah recorded her first Melbourne Saturday victory partnering Sistine Demon to his fifth-straight success in the $80,000 Thomas North Handicap (1400m) at Caulfield. Currently on loan to Caulfield trainer Mick Price, 18-year-old Kah became the first apprentice to win the Adelaide jockeys’ premiership in over 15 years last season.

Glad to have broken through in town after starting with Price mid-January, Kah said she was hoping to move to Melbourne permanently following a three-week stint in Singapore next week.

“Finally, it’s taken its time but it’s great,” Kah said. “The horse travelled super the whole way and gave me a great feel, the race was never in doubt. Mick (Price) has been terrific. He has given me a couple of nice rides and given me a couple more today so I couldn’t ask for anything more.”

Settling a length clear at the front of the field, Sistine Demon ($3.60) travelled comfortably for Kah before racing clear of his rivals at the top of the home straight. Continuing to extend his lead the closer he got to the line, Sistine Demon eventually recorded a three-length win over the fast-finishing Our Hand Of Faith ($2.80), with Elwick Jack ($9) just under a length further back in third.

Trainer Andrew Noblet, who has now recorded six wins from 12 metropolitan runners this season, said the four-year-old son of Excites would now head towards the $260,000 Listed Kilmore Cup (1600m) on February 23.

“It has been really confidence building for the horse this winning,” Noblet said. “He keeps doing it and he keeps getting better with every win...He had a cheap run in front today but full credit to Jamie she has good hands and is a good rider. She settled him well in front and made it very hard for the others.

“I said that if he went well today that I’d set him for the Kilmore Cup and I think he deserves his chance at something like that. The mile will suit him and at this stage that’s where we’re heading.”
