Not quite sure how Summerville Boy got up to win after almost coming down at the second last - Glad he did, though.
Me too Gandi :tup:

Was unconvinced SB would catch Kalashnikov on the run-in after that error, thought it would knock the stuffing out of him

Magical ride from Ruby there. First part of my treble up, plus 8/1 for a Mullins winner on day one.

Another awful error from the winner. Footpad was at least 12L behind the leader. Cool ride from Ruby with Footpad very impressive apart from the one error

Cracking start to the meeting for you, well done :tup:

Two out of two for Gurj, you & I

Next race is much tougher

Watching the rerun, the quality of the jockey over Kalasnikov's proofed vital.
