“Northam Anniversary Cup Heats”

Three heats of the Cup were contested today with first and second along with the two fastest thirds progressing to next Monday’s Final. Oldstager Crashing Packs won Heat One for Stoneville trainer Max Julien. After a good jump he dashed to the front in the middle stages before beating Iona Flyer by 2.50 lengths in 30.02. It was win number 25 for Crashing Packs who turns five years of age next February. The second heat produced a much faster winning time with the in-form Ochre Keroma leading throughout in a blistering 29.26. She scored by ten lengths over Thru The Years who finished second, another six lengths in front of Karma Train. The final heat was won by Semikhah, who handled the rise in distance to lead throughout in a swift 29.71. The Ben Abercrombie trained Ultimate Wingman flooded home for second ahead of Blackwood Burst who finished third. Semikhah was James Jeffries second heat winner and added to his training dominance on the day.
