Racing returned to Doomben on Saturday where The Harrovian stole the show recording his tenth straight victory in the Listed Tattersal’s Recognition Stakes.
The track was rated a Good 4 and although horses did run on, there was some advantage to horses on the speed.
Doomben Blackbookers November 28
Olympic Class (Sixth): Just forget Olympic Class ran around on Saturday where he didn’t get any clear running room until the race was well and truly over.
After thrashing his opposition on debut and then being nailed in a photo staying at 1400m second-up, the Michael Costa trained gelding landed in the box seat on Saturday, and although he travelled like the winner at the turn, never got a chance.
A large three-year-old by Olympic Glory, he is a talent that needs plenty of room to move which he unfortunately didn’t get, never seeing daylight until the race was over with 200m to go.
Whether he stays at the mile or looks to step out over 1800m next start, put a pen through Olympic Class’s run on Saturday and is a horse to follow stepping out over further ground.
Mount Tabora (Third): The former Snowden gelding was having his first run in Queensland on Saturday and didn’t disappoint, charging into third behind stablemate Beachbreak over 1350m.
After starting his career in Europe, Yulong Investments purchased the five-year-old gelding by Scat Daddy where he won two races in Victoria for the Snowden yard.
Now with Toby and Trent Edmonds, he trialled strongly at the Gold Coast before producing a terrific first-up run at Doomben where he was out sprinted at the turn, charging home into third over the concluding stages in a strong indication he is ready for the mile.
Set to step out over the mile in the coming weeks, Mount Tabora’s first run in Queensland was a terrific return and with wins at Sandown and Flemington in Victoria, will be even better over a big track.
Phantom Falcon (Fourth): The Kacey Fogden-trained seven-year-old gelding put together a last fantastic preparation and returned with another terrific first-up run on Saturday.
Finding a hot race which included the heavily backed Baller and Boomtwon Lass, James Orman settled midfield in a leader dominated race, charging through the line into fourth.
In his first preparation in Queensland after racing in Hong Kong, the son of Swiss Ace put together a terrific preparation recording back to back wins before a narrow second placing behind The Harrovian.
A horse which has produced his best over 1400m, Saturday’s run was a terrific return from Phantom Falcon who will only improve as he steps out second and third-up.
