R7 MORPHETTVILLE 19 May 2018
Darley Goodwood 3U , 1200m
Race Synopsis: After a late-closing fifth in this race last year Santa Ana Lane again steamed home but on this occasion his late run proved successful, which saw him take out his second Group One victory in 26 starts. He settled back in 17th place in the large 20-horse field, before Ben Melham switched him back toward to inner on straightening. He then sprinted well, hit the front at the 50m before going on to score by just over a length. Missrock was nicely placed in fourth spot, just behind the leaders, hit the front on passing the 200m and then fought gamely for a very good second. Three-year-old filly I'll Have A Bit travelled well, midfield, but was held up for clear running on turning for home. She got a late split nearing the 100m and ran on well for a very good third, looking a little unlucky in a smart performance, advancing in class here. Super Cash raced in sixth place, got a split at the 200m and battled on well to dead-heat for fourth with Flamberge who shared the lead (with Thronum) at a good tempo. He hit the front at the 200m and staged a good effort in holding on so well, finishing just two lengths from the winner after his early efforts. The favourite Vega Magic began well from his difficult barrier (14) and raced in third place, but caught three wide outside the leading trio, on a strong tempo. He was under pressure on turning for home and then battled on for (4.2 lengths) eighth in a very sound first up effort under difficult circumstances with his top weight (59kg).
