Race 1 Srs Security Services (Bm86) 1000m

Textbook ride from Holder, pocketing Heka Express for long enough and putting enough of a gap on that runner to hold a margin to the line. The race rated well and I think you can follow Tequila Time in this grade or slightly higher at 1000-1100m. Brimarvi Vehero returned well and although has the feet issues, fresh and placed well, he's obviously come back well enough to win at this level.

Race 3 Tab Mdn Plate 1200m

Fair to say Fox Gem was something licked here. Going too well on the rail, trying to find a gap behind the eventual winner, Water Into Wine. Never really able to build into the run yet still coming late and through the line. Same trip next start fine. Water Into Wine was able to build into the open straight and the pre race thoughts were evident, that he would appreciate more ground. Good win and would be happy to look at him again next start over 1400m. Miss Amanap well and truely outran her SP. She was the outlier from the tail, making a sustained run through the middle only to peak late. She can win one, likely a step back in class would help and at 13-1400m.

Race 8 M.M. 5Th March Book Now (Bm68) 1200m

Disappointed I didn't follow up on Lianne after making her one to follow after her big win when first-up for the stable. She repeated that and topped that performance with the sprint in the 4-2 section electric and putting the race away. Happy to see her again at 1200m on the fresher side; she can progress to 13-1400m. Airborne! The other runner to follow was Kenyan Wonder. Clearly the best from the tail. Victim of the barrier and was a long way back entering the straight to only miss 2.4L. This is her level now and I'm sure she can win one if placed in this grade.

The track raced very evenly and we saw an emerging 3YO prove his last start win was no fluke.

Rail was out and the track played slightly to the front in my opinion but where tempo allowed it was..
