“Canal Turn leads throughout for Lake Clifton trainer John Cole”
Nippy youngster Canal Turn capitalised on his favourable box when an all the way winner of tonight’s Love The Chase Novice over 302m. The son of Dyna Villa had been jumping quickly over longer distances and settling in or near the lead at all five career starts. On July 3 he led throughout over 380m at Cannington but he had faded at his other runs. This evening’s drop to 302m was ideal and once he found the front he won comfortably in 17.59 over former Victorian Fernando Stealth. The Harvey based Incredible Evie started favourite from box one and wasn’t far away in third position. Canal Turn turns two years old in October and looks set to lead and win plenty of races over short distances. Pictured : John Cole
