Race conditions

dry, chilly

Report

It was pretty cold but mercifully dry with only a moderate breeze for today's handicap. Rain had been forecast, but held off for the race, yet it felt colder than the promised 12C. These conditions seemed to suit the runners with over a quarter of runners setting PBs, and one setting a new V65 record.

The big "international" story of the day was that Sue McGinlay, whilst jetlagged and injured, romped home 18th to complete her 100th handicap and be awarded with her Serpentine 100 Handicaps t-shirt. Sue flew in from Spain to be with other serpies today amongst the cold and wind. Well done Sue from everyone!

In the medals, Julie Spiers surprised herself to win in her second handicap by seven minute margin. Michael Morris, coming back from injury, managed to run his best race in four years to come in second, and Abdulrashid Abdi in his 8th handicap managed to pile on the form with another PB to take the bronze medal (and also to be the fastest runner by over a minute - almost breaking the 24 minute barrier).

There were 19 PBs out of the 70 runners being scored by Julie and Abdi plus: Alan G. Hall, Phillip McCubbins, Roger Coyle, Ashok Jamdagni, Gordon Robertson, Marielle Vestlund, Andrew Henderson, Kathleen Brady, Tamara Shaw, Alessandro Poggi, Sarah Bell, Rachel Smyth, Paul Goulson, Anne Bennett, Catherine Dubois, Matt Taylor and Lynn Plumbley.

Special congratulations go to Charles Doxat who managed to get round his 58th handicap today in 29:02, setting another V65 age category record with an 83% age-graded performance.

In the Tom Hogshead stakes, first and second place Graham Carson (176pts) and Tom Donovan (152pts) stayed away. Gordon Robertson scored 22pts (9th race, displacing a previous 5pts) to move up to third place on 142pts. Marielle Vestlund scored 19pts (in her 8th race) and took 4th place just 1pt behind on 141pts. Last month's third place Abdi Dhuhulow took 10pts to take fifth spot on 139pts BUT he is still only on his 6th race of the year - so the others above him have two more races of points towards their total. A similar situation exists for 7th place Roger Coyle on 133 pts who has also only run 6 races. Only Jeannette Mueller and Ashok Jamdagni have managed to turn up and run every handicap so far this year.

Thanks to everyone who helped, which included: Mark Braley, Sarah Knox, Jon Knox, Peter Loveridge, Georgina McFadyen, Anthony Stranger-Jones, Stephanie Vaatz, Beate Vogt and John Walker.

Next race Saturday 1st November. Watch out for notices on the serpentine website.
