20200706 – Cannington Monday

MON REBEL (Kinloch Brae- Starlight Asha) recently transferred from Linda Smithson’s kennel to her son Adams and the little black bitch won her Maiden impressively on debut for him. Jumping well from box 4, she recorded a winning time of 16.17 in defeating Mustang Fun by 4 lengths.

BELLA’S WAY (Worm Burner- Molly Dobbs) was on debut at Cannington when she scored a head victory over Abbey Siobhan in 16.35. Now in the care of Phil Worthington, the former SA winner was quick to reward her connections and has now won 3 times from 12 starts.

SHE’S DUE (Barcia Bale- Tye Me Up) recorded her first win over the 275 metres with a 3/4 length victory over Kid Fabio in 16.41. The win continued the winning run for trainer Pete Brown who had a winning double 24 hours earlier at Cannington.

CHEVY’S ENTRY (Unlawful Entry- Sticka Size) led from box 1 and defeated Buster the Brute by 1 3/4 lengths in a PB 30.01. The Shayne Williams trained dog only recently won a city Grade 5 in 30.19. The blue brindle dog has now won 14 times from 42 career starts and nearly $50,000 in stakes.

MORE DEDUCTIONS (Fernando Bale- Sweet It Is) appreciated the bumping taking place by Incredible Hero and Who’s Got Byron going into the first corner. The Paul Stuart trained dog worked to the lead missing the bumping and raced away for an 8 length win over Freddo Monelli in a PB 29.82. The former Victorian chaser has now won 3 of 4 starts since coming West.

“Flake Monelli breaks Miata’s 647m track record”

Super stayer Flake Monelli (pictured) capitalised on drawing box one in tonight’s first heat of the Mandurah Middle Distance Challenge.

The daughter of Fernando Bale jumped well and enjoyed an uncontested lead before abandoning her pursuers with around 250m to gallop.

Kennel-mate and full brother Snickers Monelli tried his heart out to stay on her coat-tails but her elite endurance saw her dash clear and win by ten lengths.

Her time of 36.22 lowered Miata’s track record (36.40) that was recorded back in December of 2011 by three lengths.

She has now won 19 of 39 for David Hobby and will start a warm favourite in next Friday’s final.

“Dusty Mac turns back the clock for McLennan”

Former top grade chaser Dusty Mac wound back the clock tonight when he thrashed his opponents in the Maiolo Constructions Mixed 5/6 over 405m.

He announced himself as a highly promising youngster back in April 2018 when he led throughout over 405m in a scintillating time of 22.54.

He followed up with some sub thirty second runs at Cannington including a second to champion sprinter West On Augie when beaten by just half a length.

However the son of Dyna Double One lost all form from March of last year and only managed one minor placing from 22 starts and that was a third at Northam.

Tonight he drew awkwardly in box six but after the $1.38 favourite Shinboner Glory missed the kick by ten lengths he was able to drive to the front and set the pace.

His opponents simply couldn’t go with him and he won by an ever-expanding nine lengths over Yanderra Jimmy and Zipping Simon.

His time of 22.89 was also terrific given he hadn’t won in such a long time and the fact that he is four years and five months old which puts him well in to the veteran category.

He was now won thirteen races for Kylie McLennan who also prepared the mother Roxy Mac who was a winner of eighteen races herself.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 2 SPRAY AND WIPE : Began like a rocket and gave cheek against some classy customers.

Race 5 Number 3 HARPER’S HERO : Made up many lengths on a very handy chaser in Canya Go Wild.
