Amor Omnia Vinicit!

Amor Omnia Vinicit!

The course at Silverstream was comparatively dry for the 6¼ mile club championship race last Saturday. Dick Daniell led the field away from St. Pat.'s College grounds, closely followed by de la Mare, McDowell, Scott and Rowberry, For the first mile there was considerable competition for the lead until Giff. Rowberry drew away from the others and settled down well in front. He gradually increased his lead for the remainder of the race to win by about 600 yards. The battle for second place was far more even. Both Peter de la Mare and Dicky Daniell made a strong bid but were narrowly beaten by Ian McDowell. Dick was unlucky in having a bad fall at one of the last fences which spoilt his chance.

Placings were: I, Rowberry, 38 m. 8 sec; 2, McDowell, 39 m. 24 sec.; 3, de la Mare, 39 m. 25 see.; 4, Daniell, 39 m. 34 sec. The sealed handicap was won by Browning off 7 minutes, with Sutherland (6½ minutes) second.

The club championship is decided by placing in this and two other races, i.e., the Sherwood Cup and the Endeavour Cup. McDowell is now one point ahead of Rowberry and two points ahead of de la Mare. They are all close enough together for a win in the Endeavour Cup race to make any one of the three club champion for 1943.
