The point is not that Sirconni won, it was the dominance of the win.....he completely obliterated the field.
Certainly found stamina that has never been evident until a week before.
If Sirconni was a Chinese swimmer or a Russian road walker and a little Aussie battler came 2nd then The Daily Terrorgraph and radio shock jocks would be working overtime.
Not one of the Herald "experts" found a spot for the 4th fav.
Sirconni couldn't rate a mention from Racing.Com's "Analyser"
and the only time he got mentioned on 'Get On' was when Matt Campbell said there was money for him when $17 was available.
No big surprise there.....happens regularly!......I can't see anyone who would have predicted that.
Wide draw and coming back in distance were a couple of the obvious negatives about the horse.
Like I said, had Aquanita written all over it and if there is such a thing as 'integrity' in horse racing, that blood sample would be on it's way to the French Lab that states can detect EPO......surely in this day and age trainers could at least face the threat of that.
Anyway this is horse racing so we call 'correct weight' and move on to the next race......what a turn off!
