At Eagle Farm in Brisbane, talented 7YO US-bred gelding Tales Of Grimm (Distorted Humor-Stupendous Miss, by Dynaformer) registered the second black-type victory of his career when scoring by 0.8-length for trainer Chris Waller in the $100,000 Listed Spear Chief Handicap (1500m) for 3YO+, over 5YO gelding Amovatio (Al Maher-Grand Ovation, by Scenic) & 7YO gelding Aldini (Magic Albert-Ebbtide, by Spinning World). Tales Of Grimm improved his record to 5 wins (including the Listed Scone Cup) and 3 placings (including the Gr3 Darley Stakes at Newmarket) from 26 start for $348,796 earnings.
