Tasmania: Graham enjoys an Easter feast
By Adam Williams, April 19, 2017 - 4:49 PM

Apprentice Chris Graham was the standout performer at the Devonport meeting on Easter Monday, kicking home a trio of victors. 
He combined with local trainer Adam Trinder for two of those wins. 
The first of them was debutant Gasnier, who took the open-age maiden plate over 900 metres. 
It was a big effort by the two-year-old son of Hidden Dragon, who was taking on the older horses and was pressured in front throughout. 
Graham gave Trinder’s other victor, Steel Brom, a trail just off the pace in benchmark 68 company before gaining inside splits in the run to the line. He got the nod in a tight three-way finish at the end of the 1150 metre journey. 
The three-kilo claimer also guided the John Blacker-trained Blaze Forth to a dominant 1½-length win in the Class 4 handicap over 1350 metres after sitting outside the leader throughout. 
Trinder’s fellow local mentor Barry Campbell shared the training honours, also bagging a pair of winners.
The first of them was Aljazmic, who didn’t go around a horse after settling midfield from the inside draw under Daniel Ganderton in the open-age maiden plate over 1650 metres. 
Campbell made it a running double when Gemini proved too strong in the Class 1 handicap over 1350 metres after enjoying a perfect box-seat trail under two-kilo claimer Nathan Punch.
The Easter Cup (1650m) went to the Micheal Trinder-trained Spihro, who enjoyed a perfect trail under David Pires just in behind the leaders, who had set up a quick tempo.
The ex-NSW gelding has built up a great record at his new home base, having now won at four of his five attempts.
