Race conditions

Wind northeasterly, backing northerly; moderate breeze force 4; intermittent slight rain. Good!

Report

Today's race registration was fairly drizzly, but the rain held back and the race was only damp and quite warm: generally fairly good conditions for a handicap - especially as there was an apparent paucity of people perambulating in the park.

The race was won by Peter Tallboys with a vast improvement which led him to win by over ten seconds from a strong run by Georgina McFadeyn who managed to keep four seconds ahead of David Smart. All three medalists scored PBs, with David breaking the 80% A/G barrier.

Surprisingly (for the conditions), nearly 30% of the field scored PBs (20 of the 72 runners) - including the first 8 places. In addition to Peter, Georgina and David, these were: Roger Coyle, Stephane Schneider, Simon Coles, Abdi Dhuhulow, Alessandro Poggi, Mark Palmer, Tom Donovan, Graham Carson, Kiera Davidson, Angus Searcy, Sarah Bell, Michelle Howden, Poppy Lenton, Bettina Schreck, Leigh Kristensen, Phillip Sloss and Guy Regis.

On to the Tom Hogshead trophy race. The TH winner each year is the runner who scores most points from their eight best handicaps. Points are awarded for position (winner gets 20pts, second 19pts down to 17th place and beyond which score 3pts) and performance (matching or surpassing your PB scores 12pts, a little below 11pts, and so on to zero).

Graham Carson (159pts) holds on to top spot with another PB today. Tom Donovan (131pts) moves up one place to second, while Abdi Dhuhulow (129pts in only his 5th race of the year) takes third place, leaving Jane Harris (125pts) down at fourth. An "almost PB" (2s short) lets Marielle Vestlund (122pts) push ahead of Jeannette Mueller (110pts). The top 6 is thus man man man lady lady lady...

As this is the 8th race of the year, we now have some people who have completed eight races - these people can only advanced their TH score by amassing more points in subsequent races than their lowest score so far, and thereby replacing it. There are six of them (second no in brackets is minimal future requirements): Graham Carson (159pts, 14+), Tom Donovan (131pts, 9+), Jane Harris (125pts, 7+), Ashok Jamdagni (114pts, 11+), and Jeannette Mueller (119pts, 10+) - these are in alphabetic order. This list does not necessarily include the year's winner, as a number of other runners have not yet filled their quota of 8 races but have high scores - they include Abdi Dhuhulow (129pts from just 5 races), Marielle Vestlund (122pts from 7 races), and David Smart (117pts from 7 races).

Can Graham keep his lead? Had Abdi done all the PBs he can for the year? Will the ladies end up on top?

Thanks today to all those who helped to make the race possible: Mark Braley, Carrie Doyle, John Dsouza, Malcolm French, Ron Hagel, Jon Knox, Sarah Knox, Darren Over, Catharine Sowerby, Beate Vogt and Hilary Walker.

The next exciting race in the handicap series for 2008 will be on Saturday September the 6th...
