Not quite your 3 lengths despite the race caller's enthusiam!

An Opie-esque move to get out at the top of the straight.

He's electric.

2 1/4

The caller must have had a dollar on the margin option

It could have turned out to be a disaster though for Catalyst

CATALYST (T Harris) - Held up rounding the final bend and after receiving slight contact from ZELENSKI shifted outwards abruptly making firm contact with RUN TO PERFECTION near the 400 metres.

The thing I remember most from that win was the almost violent move sideways by Catalyst on the corner. It was dodgems there for a moment and could have resulted in  disaster. Luckily Catalyst's momentum was not affected as he rebounded off the other horse (Run To Perfection, I think) who had him in a pocket, or so his jockey thought. The upside of that is, it shows Catalyst is strong enough to take a decent knock or two. Brilliant acceleration.  Wonder what time he'd have run if the pace had been on from the start.
