Speedy WA-bred pacer Arma Einstein maintained his excellent form with a smart all-the-way win in the 2130m All Access Civil Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night to enhance his standing as a strong contender for the rich feature events for four-year-olds in December.

The Renaissance Man gelding, the $1.90 favourite trained and driven by Colin Brown, was able to coast through the lead time in a slow 38.4sec. and the opening quarters in 31.6sec. and 30.5sec. before sprinting over the final 400m sections in 27.7sec. and 28sec. He held on grimly to beat Caveman ($9) by a head, with the fast-finishing To Fast To Serious ($2.40) a neck farther back in third place.

His victory boosted his record to 56 starts for 12 wins and 24 placings for stakes of $146,258.

Caveman, a five-year-old trained by Mike Reed and driven by Shannon Suvaljko, just failed to record three wins in a row. He raced in the breeze without applying any pressure on the pacemaker before finishing with a spirited burst to go narrowly. To Fast To Serious raced in sixth position, one-out and two-back, before starting a three-wide move 250m from home and surging home out wide on the track.
