Buffering cruises to victory at Doomben

Jockey Damian Browne believes an elusive Group One is within reach for Buffering after his brilliant first-up win in the Group Two Victory Stakes at Doomben on Saturday.

Buffering, the $1.70 favourite, recorded a brilliant 1:08.54 for the 1200-metre trip when he thrashed Spirit Of Boom ($9) by 3-1/2 lengths with Albrecht ($11) a neck away third.

After seven Group One placings, Buffering will be seeking his first win at the elite level in the BTC Cup (1200m) at Eagle Farm on May 11.

Browne believes Buffering's win signals he is ready to claim the title of Australia's best sprinter which has been left vacant by the retirement of the incomparable Black Caviar.

"He's an amazing horse because he's full of zest and has a real love for racing," he said.

Browne wasn't concerned when Listen Son applied pressure soon after the start.

"We knew that was going to happen and at one stage I thought about letting Listen Son go," he said.

"But Buffering is a bulldog and he would've wanted to get into a fight with the other horse so I put a neck back on Listen Son and he relaxed straight away."

Browne said Buffering was starting to tire towards the end of the race but will derive plenty of improvement from the run.

Trainer Robert Heathcote watched the race in New Zealand where he was attending a Kontiki Tour reunion, leaving stable foreman Melissa Leitch to heap superlatives on the gelding's winning performance.

"He's a little bulldog. A little champion in our eyes," Leitch said.

Jockey Glen Colless was happy with Spirit Of Boom's effort but said the gelding wasn't able to match Buffering's acceleration.

"He kept coming to the line but the winner was in a class of his own," he said.

Josh Parr believes Albrecht will continue to race competitively during the winter carnival.

"I'm not sure where Peter will head with him but I think he could be a lightweight chance in a race like the Stradbroke," he said.

"When they run those sectionals for the first 600 metres and then back it up for the next 600 metres it makes it near impossible to catch them."
