Super Series night a great night for the stable
The concept was great, as too were the results achieved on the night by the Robert Dunn stable. From nine starters on the night, a return of 3 firsts, 3 seconds and a third was an outstanding result. While Return To Sender, Blazin N Cullen and Lauramegan were all outstanding winners, a special mention must go to Kotare Mahal, who all but knocked off the seemingly unbeatable Didjamakem Bolt in a Super Series final race. From a wide draw, he had to work overtime for the first 600m before reaching the top at the 2000m. From there he was looked in the eye by Better Rock On and then for the last 1200m by Didjamakem Bolt. After appearing to be the one travelling the best on the turn, John was able to put a length on the favourite at the 200m. However, as only good horses do, the Mark Purdon runner dug very deep in the final 50m to win by a narrow 1/2 neck, with Better Rock On a top 3rd just a further 1/2 head away. Clearly these are three very good horses and will all be prominent in the coming weeks and seasons.

The other super run was by Lumos in one of the consolation races, won in a staggering time for horses of this class in 3.11.4, by the brilliant, but unsound Anton Oliver. While Anton Oliver and Alex Hastie were going to war up front with Uncle Trevor, Lumos was getting into all sorts of trouble, being 5 lengths off them at the 800m and up to 9 lengths off them at the 400m. To get within 1.7 lengths of the winner at the end was clearly some run!
