Friday was certainly a day to remember at Clifford Park.
1. We finally saw the much-discussed CLASSIC FORCE do what we've been expecting for several months. Whitely got the 4yo going early and he was never going to lose. He's capable of winning again, too.
2. As coins as said, DESDEMONA looked good winning the F&M Trophy. Not that we didn't already know how good she was, but connections have finally been rewarded with a nice win. Also following on from coins, BINGIL BAY's run was a great effort. 3yo taking on the older mares, she tried hard after being wide from the jump.
3. In the last, the Maund-trained RHODAMINE repaid connections a fair bit of the fine that arose from a recent positive swab. She went to the lead early and just ran away from them.
4. Other winners HEART and MANSTON put in good efforts and look certain to score in the metro area before long. DRUMSHANBO is another who'll be ringing up No 1 in the near future.
