What about the All-Star Mile on the weekend.
The richest race in the world over 1600m.
The rain had come and it made this a real spectacle.
Sir Dragonet was well backed with the rains coming in, but he never really seemed to travel in between horses and finished 9th.
Spell time for him I'd suggest.
Russian Camelot travelled on the rail and D Oliver gave him a peach of a ride, he followed Mugatoo in the run.
Olly seemed to have got out somehow and put Hugh Bowman in a pocket on Mugatoo, he had a quick look over the left shoulder at the top of the home straight and Russian Camelot looked a winner.
But Hughie, as he always does, he found a way.
He snuck through the gap and had the right horse under him.
It was a stunning win in a fantastic race.
There was some great runs in behind, Behemoth boxed on well for third, Lunar Fox proved that Australian Guineas win wasn't a fluke, he ran a gallant fourth.
And what about the champ from QLD, the Harrovian. He earned connections a cool $150,000 for running 5th, a neck in front of Streets of Avalon who was tough from a wide draw.
This was a stunning spectacle @ the Valley.
It had somewhat of a Cox Plate feel to it.
This week attention turns back to Sydney for Golden Slipper Day, Rosehill Guineas & George Ryder Stakes Day.
That's going to be farken good and as always for Slipper Day - there's rain around!
