Race 7: Laws Of Indices

In his first Australian start for new trainer Annabel Neasham, the son of Power was friendless in the market ($31) for the highly anticipated Golden Eagle (1500m).

The three-year-old colt jumped on terms from his wide gate (16), before settling worse than midfield in a 3-4 wide position with minimal cover.

Jockey Tommy Berry tried his best to land his mount a spot with cover but unfortunately, he couldn't take a trick and travelled in a similar spot throughout.

Upon straightening, the pair were the best part of 5-6 wide and could be forgiven for a plain finish in the straight. Instead, the Irish horse kept coming, taking steady ground off his rivals as they charged home in rapid time.

Unlucky not to figure in the placings, the colt ultimately finished just under two lengths away in fifth.

In what was a truly gutsy performance, Laws Of Indices was extremely game in defeat and definitely presents as one to keep an eye on in proceeding runs.

While Neasham has not yet nominated her promising colt for any upcoming races, a race like The Gong (1600m – Nov 20) could be a serious target.
