Shooting To Win finished third.

Race favourite and market mover Bring Me The Maid had an unlucky run and finished eight.

Hallowed Crown’s odds lengthened after the Bart and James Cummings gelding drew barrier 14 in the 15 horse field, but co-trainer James Cummings was always confident he could maintain his unbeaten record.

“It means so much to the team; there’s a great young team behind us and it’s amazing we’ve won Sydney’s biggest racing in the spring,” James Cummings said.

“This horse could be anything, there’s so much thanks to not only the staff but to the support.

“That’s what the good horses have got to do, just keep taking that step. We thought he was one of the best three-year-olds on his return two weeks ago and he had to do it again, he had to make such a sustained run in that race.
