NOT A Single Doubt two-year-old Don't Waiver looked a long shot when back last in the run on a heavy track but the confidence of connections never waivered.
"He's bred to get over ground and could be a very nice middle distance horse later,'' said trainer Stuart Kendrick.
Don't Waiver ($4.20-fav), ridden by Matthew McGillivray, raced just like that in winning a 2YO Maiden (1000m) at the Sunshine Coast on Sunday, July 7.
He looked like he couldn't go early when back last but worked his way into the race on the inside in the straight before claiming them and racing away to win easily by two-and-a-half lengths.
Don't Waiver was having his third career start and was first-up from a let-up. He'd tackled metropolitan company in Brisbane at his first two runs.
"He's a very smart two-year-old,'' Kendrick said.
"He showed plenty last time in but needed gelding,'' he said.
"He's come back more professional."
