After only winning his first race a week ago on Westlawn Prelude Day, fast finishing colt Zumikon did the double for trainer Bryan Dais yesterday when he strode home in the NBN Springboard to Fame 2YO Plate.

It was a strong win for the favourite who was a big drifter in the betting ring as the horses loaded up in the barriers.

"He was really, really good in the end," Dais said after the race. "I was a bit worried when they turned for home and the other horse sort of went past him but he fought back well and he dug deep for the win."

Zumikon sat in the slipstream of race leader topweight Bryan Guy-trained Game of Dreams from the second furlong, and despite attention from late favourite Master Magic Al on the outside finished strong to a full length ahead of Game of Dreams.

It was a short turnaround for the Brisbane galloper, who returned to the Eagle Farm stables after last Thursday's maiden victory, before making the journey back down the Pacific Hwy yesterday.

"He has done a great job, it is not an easy thing to do, backing up after only a week, he has got a fair bit of ticker about him," Dais said.

"We will take him back up to Brisbane and find a nice comfortable race for him in two to three weeks and hopefully we can build on it from there."
