STAR Tasmania-born jokey Craig Newitt gave the connections of Hotham Street something to cheer about when he partnered the gelding to an impressive all-he-way win in a maiden over 1200 metres at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart today.

He gave his charge a breather between the 700-500-metre marks but when he pressed the go button the gelding sped clear and went on to score by about a length from well-bred gelding Alarmist with the well-backed cerise Sauvage a closing third.
