FAST GIRL ZOLA (Bekim Bale- Surfing Madam) railed strongly along the back straight to find the lead before racing away for an 8 3/4 length Maiden win in 30.21. The former Queensland chaser is now prepared by Andrew Mclaren (pictured) and was placed at her previous start on debut in 30.25.
CROCODILE DAISY (Paw Licking- Arolok Daisy) showed speed from her outside draw on debut over the 520 metres for trainer Tim Mullany. The black bitch then strode to the line 1 3/4 lengths clear of Vanessa Monelli in 30.30. The youngster won her Maiden from box 8 a few runs prior over the 380 metres in a slick 21.86.
SHELL SHOCKED (Bekim Bale- Whispering Ling) showed speed from box 7 and although not being able to find the lead, was too strong for his rivals with a 3 1/4 length win in 30.18. The Enzo Crudeli trained dog was returning from injury sustained when finishing second in a heat of the Gr 1 Perth Cup behind Starlight Asha.
