In Summary
  • No hassle for Rising Dragon in the Marafa Maiden as she cast aside the more seasoned, Glascote Rose.
  • Paul Kiarie must have been off-colour as he was deputised on two instances by James Muhindi and Daniel Tanui.

Que sera sera. With a late withdrawal of Gold Pot, As Paragon seemed like a natural pursuant of the Nairac Gold Trophy Sprint, until Go Pro tried earnestly topple the dynamo, only half-a-length adrift.

Flash Harry deliberated not to enrich the sport's cultural fabric this time round. He conducted his own orchestra alone, uncharacteristically a distance further back.

No hassle for Rising Dragon in the Marafa Maiden as she cast aside the more seasoned, Glascote Rose.

Paul Kiarie must have been off-colour as he was deputised on two instances by James Muhindi and Daniel Tanui. Trainer, Stewart McCann, rubbed elbows with a double, while Patsy Sercombe feasted on a conventional treble.
