Handy four-year-old gelding Roman Fighter, trained out of the Ben Pearce yard headed out for start number 6, over 1000m with a field of 0 to 68 runners, ready to vie for the prize with Peter Hall aboard the stable entrant jumping from barrier five in field of seven.

As the field released in the Smartline Home Loans handicap it was Roman Fighter who was fractionally slow to begin in the middle of runners however on settling, Hall allowed his charge to go to the front, getting there under relatively even terms, Sebring Lane settled on the paint behind the leader with Stable Secrets 1 off the fence, as Tre Amici, seemed to have the run of the race in fourth, with the field rolled towards the turn en-route to the camera.

Into the straight Roman Fighter  gave a kick with Hall winding up the Zentsov Street progeny with consumate ease, leaving the other well supported runner Sebring Lane in his wake in the concluding stages, with Hall racing away on Roman Fighter to bring up 2 wins and 3 placings from 6 career starts, with the flashy chestnut landing the prize ahead of Border Scot in second and Stable Secret left to fight out the third division ahead of Tre Amici.

Congratulations to Mr B Pearce, Mr T Forest & Mr R Sayers with another impressive outing with their runner to bring up career earnings of $32,200 in a race time of 57.97 with the last 600m in 33.73.
