Ulmann found clear running at the right time to return to winning form in the 2016 Paris Lane Handicap at Flemington this afternoon.

Ulmann travelled into the race nicely just behind the leading group with Damian Lane in the saddle, but he looked in trouble at the 300 metre when he was blocked for a run.

Lane eventually found clear running for Ulmann and the Sebring gelding showed an impressive turn-of-foot to outsprint Akavoroun and Federal in the final stages of the race.

“He travelled well for me,” Lane said.

“I was in a little bit of bother turning for home, but once I got him into the clear he attacked the line.

“He jumped in a midfield spot, but the pace really slowed up and I ended up fourth or fifth.

“He came back under me when the pace slackened and he did everything that I asked of him.”

Ulmann has gone to another level since he joined the stable of Darren Weir and he put the writing on the wall for another race win with his second place finish behind subsequent Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes winner Bon Aurum in the Listed The Sofitel (1400m) at Flemington on September 10.

Weir was pleased with the performance of Ulmann and he revealed that the five-year-old would head to the Group 2 Crystal Mile (1600m) at Moonee Valley on Cox Plate Day.

“He is going really well,” Weir said.

“I said during the week that he has really come on condition wise and looks wise and in the last month he has really picked up his eating.

“He really toughed it out well today.

“He will probably go to the Valley now on Cox Plate Day, providing he does well.

“Akavoroun is a pretty good horse on his day and it takes bit of getting past him.

“I am really happy with the way that he went.”

Akavoroun returned to his best form with a close second, while Federal did not have a great deal of luck in running and was still able to finish the line strongly to finish third.

    I’m planning to start my own blog in the near future but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    looking for something unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had
    to ask!

  13. Jose Wilame Araujo Rodrigues

    My developer is trying to persuade me to move to .net from
    PHP. I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a variety of websites for about a year and am concerned about
    switching to another platform. I have heard great things about
    blogengine.net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress content into
    it? Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!

  14. security applications

    First of all I want to say terrific blog!
    I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.

    I was interested to know how you center yourself
    and clear your thoughts before writing. I have had a tough time clearing my thoughts in getting my
    ideas out. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or hints?

    Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The
    text in your content seem to be running off the screen in Chrome.
    I’m not sure if this is a format issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but
    I figured I’d post to let you know. The layout look great though!
