Astute Bannockburn (Geelong) trainer Geoff Webster landed the quinella in the Next Race Meet Monday 5th November Pace for C2 & C3 class over 2100 metres at the Geelong Harness Racing Club fixture held on Tuesday October 23 with classy 4-Y-0 Mach Three/Lady Of My Life gelding Charlie Machsheen defeating Kotare Roland in a rate of 1-57.8.

Taking over shortly after the start from gate four, Charlie Machsheen strode past the polemaker Wilwillwinsum to lead without exhausting any fuel and one at the head of affairs was never going to lose, coasting to the wire 1.2 metres in advance of Kotare Roland (one/one) in a rate of 1-57.8 (last half mile 56.6 – quarter 27.9), with Please Dont Talk a further 21.1 metres away in third place.

It was Charlie Machsheen’s 6th victory in 25 outings.

Up and coming 4-Y-0 Sierra Kosmos/On The Other Hand entire Eurasian Kosmos brought up two wins in succession and three overall when greeting the judge in the November Vicbred Trotters Handicap for T0 & T1 class over 2100 metres.

Raced and trained by Rockbank’s Sam Chirciop, Eurasian Kosmos starting from the 10 metre mark settled at the rear of the field after avoiding several gallopers, with the roughie Ships Spur leading from barrier two.

Set alight three wide racing for the bell by Daryl Douglas, Eurasian Kosmos zoomed to the front before hitting the back straight, winning by an untouched 4.3 metres from Regal Equation which faced the breeze and Candy Digger in a rate of 2-07.7.

“Rocket” Rod Petroff produced the “drive of the night” to capture The Keith Selvidge Pace for C4 & C5 class over 2100 metres aboard the Jaime Madruga (Parwan) trained 6-Y-0 D M Dilinger/Beaconsfield Gold gelding Balance Point.

Starting from the extreme draw, Balance Point once the speed slackened let rip to lead after a couple of hundred metres and rated a treat, ran out a comfortable winner over Five Oclock Affair (one/two) and Le Rapide in a mile rate of 1-59.2.
