20180317 – Cannington Saturday

CRUISER COIN (Spring Gun- Gypsy Lee Coin) spoilt the party for the Irish owners of Quick Jagger on St Patricks day with a nose victory over the odds on favourite. The Bob Terrington trained dog settled in fourth place early and with Quick Jagger unable to find the lead, he was able to quickly join him coming to the home corner. The two chasers then did battle all the way down the home straight with the black dog getting his nose in front right on the line.

WEST ON AUGIE (Fernando Bale- Te Amo) demolished his rivals in the first heat of the Puppy Classic with an all the way victory scoring by 10 lengths in a PB 29.40. The Chris Halse trained dog was pressurised for the first half of the race by Pinny Mack before he dropped into another gear on the home corner. Halse trained Rammifications to win the Puppy Classic in 2016 before she went on to win the WA Greyhound of the year.

MANDJOOGOORDAP (Collision- Ritza Night) had to overcome trouble soon after the start and then on the first corner before shooting  away to win the second heat of the Puppy Classic. The Paul Stuart trained bitch showed some courage as she won by 11 lengths over Ookinaki Flyer in 29.87. Stuart won the Puppy Classic in 2013 with Dyna Nalin before he went on to win the Gr 1 Perth Cup and WA Greyhound of the year.

POPPY MONELLI (Fabregas- Jackie Bale) railed beautifully as she led throughout in the final heat of the Puppy Classic. The David Hobby trained bitch started a short priced favourite and defeated kennel mate Corona Monelli by 1 3/4 lengths in 29.75. Hobby won the classic in 1998 with All The Grooves and then in 2002 with Mario Monelli.

20180316 – Mandurah Friday

“Max Profit continues rich vane of form with stunning 405m victory”

Classy sprinter Max Profit made full use of box one tonight when he led throughout to win the Mandurah Stockfeeds Free For All. The son of Fabregas won the Lew Dorsa Memorial over 520m at Cannington last Saturday and defeated an awesome lineup in doing so. From pole position he pounced on an outright lead tonight, before posting 22.51 and scoring by five lengths in effortless fashion. A swarm of Monellis chased him home home with Everest running second, Mamma third and Peak close up in fourth position. Max Profit is prepared by West Pinjarra trainer Corey White and has now won 25 of 46 career starts and earned over $129,000 in stakes.


Race 2 Number 4 TOMIC QUEEN : Improved sharply from box 4, leading throughout in 23.17.

Race 5 Number 7 PEAK MONELLI : Ran on boldly against quality opposition to finish just out of the placings.

20180315 – Mandurah Thursday

“Lottie Deno continues to impress for Darren Rowe”

Pint-sized black bitch Lottie Deno put in a blinder of a run to win tonight’s Get The TABtouch Novice over 405m at the Mandurah track. The daughter of Kilty Lad was well supported into a $2.10 favourite and as the boxes opened her backers breathed a sigh of relief as she she exploded clear of her rivals. Weighing in at just 23kg, she was already three lengths in front at the first turn and given her ‘hardcore railing’ racing style was able to take the shortest way home and win by five lengths (in 22.88). The Harvey based Incredible Doll chased her home whilst Bushman’s Drover was another three lengths away in third position. Lottie Deno has only just turned two years old and is raced by the Greg Dwyer managed Euro Solution Syndicate. Her mother Deja Voodoo was a very honest race bitch with a terrific record at the Mandurah circuit. She, like Lottie Deno was a mad railer which helped her win 16 of 68 starts over the 490m distance. Lottie Deno has only started 6 times for 2 wins and 3 minor placings and looks to have a big future for Nambeelup trainer Darren Rowe.


Race 2 Number 2 EIGER MONELLI : Broke a losing sequence of 11 tonight when he made use of early room to win easily in 22.88.

Race 4 Number 2 BUSHMAN’S DROVER : Overcame a poor getaway to rattle home for third at his Mandurah debut.

20180313 – Mandurah Tuesday

“Mahna Mahna continues to impress”

Mahna Mahna is a highly promising youngster from the Chris Halse kennel who achieved a hat-trick of wins tonight when he won tonight’s $10 Chasers Cafe Novice over 490m. He was galloped on at his first start at Cannington back on February 7 but returned to the Mandurah track three weeks later and won his maiden over 405m in a fast 22.70. Last Tuesday he rose to 490m and after a fair jump mustered to the front before scoring in 27.71. This evening he missed the kick and leaving the back straight was fifth on the fence with greyhounds all around him. Near the 302m boxes he poked through underneath the leader and was able to barge his way to the top, before pulling away to win by four lengths in 27.89. The Kody Charles trained Excel To Dream came from a rearward position to be the runner up and the Steve Withers prepared Uncertainty finished third. Mahna Mahna is named after one of the muppets (the pink one) and is engaged to race at Cannington on Saturday night in a heat of the Puppy Classic.


Trial 1 Number 1 LAID BACK JUMBO : Won a Qualifying Trial in an impressive 22.78, showed great early speed too.

Race 5 Number 4 BULLDOG STRINGER : Rocketed his last fifty metres tonight and can fill a place at juicy odds at next start.

20180312 – Cannington Monday

EXPLOSIVE SMITH (Cosmic Rumble- Explosive Ebony) caused an upset win and his first victory over the 520 metres, scoring by 1 1/2 lengths over Nomadic in 30.45. The Barry McPherson trained dog had been placed second at his past two starts after showing speed from the boxes and then being run down. After a recent win over the 380 metres in 21.76, the black dog should continue his good form in the coming weeks.

SUNSET SHERBET (Where’s Pedro- Push It) scored a 3 1/4 length win over litter sister Sunset Licorice after an all the victory from box 4. The pair are trained by Nambellup trainer Glen Price and have been in very good form both with recent wins to their name. The fawn bitch won at her first try over the 380 metres in a slick 21.94.
