R8 FLEMINGTON11 March 2017
Tab Australian Cup G1 OPEN ($1,505,000), 2000m 2:01.07
Race Synopsis: Strong finishes for second in his last two outings promised much as Humidor gave his opposition few excuses in a sound win here. Rider Damian Lane did not hurry the four-year-old from barrier seven and they settled third last, one off the fence down the long back straight. Starting the big bend, there was no change, nor at the 1000m. Lane moved out a width at the 600m and crept closer then went wider still as they straightened. Inside the 400m they were widest but making ground, then, in true staying fashion, lengthened stride to get within striking distance of the new leader, ranging up at the 100m and outstaying them all to the line. Jameka was three wide early, moved up to sit second, one out, took a narrow lead into the straight and broke clear by two lengths at the 200m only to be hauled in by the winner over the final 100m, holding second well a neck away. Exospheric was ten lengths last at the 800m, still last turning in he worked his way through the field, switching to the rail for a fast finishing third. Stratum Star sat fifth (rails) into the home straight, got to third at the 300m but could only battle from there for fourth. The United States looked a danger at the 300m but could not keep up the momentum to finish (2.4 lengths) fifth, the first five being well clear of the remainder.
