Wild And Proud and Fontelina led them up early in this race. Benfica however, was caught wide and worked to the lead. The eventual winner Colorado Claire got a lovely run in about fourth on the fence. In the straight, Colorado Claire took a little while to pick up but once she hit the front she fought them all off. The last 100m of Rekindled Alliance’s run was very good again and he should win one soon but he is becoming a little costly, being a bit of a “boom horse”. Freewheeling came to the line well, suggesting more ground will suit. That’s The One was fancied but got back to last and did little other than run on ok in the last 100m.
Follow: Rekindled Alliance Race 9 1st Title Hugh Bowman 2nd Uate Glyn Schofield 3rd Zaratone Kathy O’Hara The last of the day was stacked with pace and eventually Zaratone and Karuta Queen paired off in front but you knew they would not stay there. You didn’t have to look hard to see the hard luck story here which was Riva De Lago, which will win next time out. The eventual winner Title sat one out, one back, and others from back in the field such as Parables had their chance to run past it but couldn’t. Uate and Parables both did run on and appear to be the improvers out of this race. Karuta Queen, even considering the fact she was on a hot speed, dropped out very badly and can’t be a betting proposition at the moment. Zaratone who was leading with her hung on for third. Panipique also disappointed – second up syndrome? Follow: Riva De Lago, Parables
