Firstly we head back to last Wednesday’s meeting from The Meadows and it was Jason Thompson who started the day in brilliant fashion with the first two winners (Aston Ebert 30.42 and Invictus Rapid 30.26), but for mine it was Rob Camilleri who claimed best on ground after he also saluted with two winners. Bannister Bale impressed after he lobbed into the early lead and went all of the way in 30.04 (Replay) whilst the kennel mate Quaker Bale set the time standard for the day with a similar race pattern in 29.97 (Replay).

Sandown Park on Thursday night conducted 12 races with races from every starting point. The opening race of the night was won by the impressive youngster Absolute Power. The son of Bekim Bale handled the inside alley well as he sprinted clear to a 29.47 victory by over five lengths (Replay).
The in-form Dublin Bull landed the grade five final from box eight pocketing the $7,200 winners cheque. After boxing away just midfield, he gained a clear run right around the outside of the field to eventually slide away to a four and half length win in a fast 34.16 (Replay).
Renown for being a little hit or miss, Cut Loose Max was all hit in the fifth race as he flew out with sections of 5.03 and 18.75 on the way to a flying 29.37 win, which was completely unexpected for punters as he paid $25.00 for the win (Replay).
Sir Charleton recorded the most impressive win of his career as he charged out of box four straight into the early lead. The Dave Geall trained sprinter seemed to go the the next level as he ran the arms off the clock with a breathtaking 29.28 best of the night performance (Replay).

The 12 race card from The Meadows on Saturday was highlighted by three heats of the Top Cat Video Cup, the first of which was won by the former Sydneysider now with Rob Britton, Lithgow Panther. The promising stayer seemed to take a step toward top class as he easily accounted for his rivals in 42.83 (Replay).
Shared Equity staved off George Sannette in the race of the night in my opinion. The speedy conveyance charged out in 4.98 and was able to burn the candle at both ends as she went on to score in 29.83 (BON).
