“Lawless Lou breaks through for maiden win at start 28”
Patience paid off for connections of Lawless Lou who finally broke her duck in tonight’s $29 Tuesday Buffet Maiden over 490m. The daughter of Above All had been placed in 12 of her first 27 starts and last Tuesday caught the eye with a fast finishing second behind Incredible Dream. She began cleanly from box four and in the small field of six settled in second position behind leader Gossiping Guess who set the pace for Jen Thompson. At half way Lawless Lou hit the lead and in the front straight she surged clear of rivals to post a seven length victory in a smart 27.95. Gossiping Guess held second ahead of former Victorian Lucy’s Quest who finished third for James Jeffries. Lawless Lou is owned by Leon Birch and trained by Barragup trainer Neville Smith. She is by Above All and now that she has won a Maiden is likely to be competitive over longer distances given how strong she was at the end of 490m. Trainer Neville Smith has enjoyed plenty of success in recent times with the likes of Dance Away and Pepper Tree.

Trial 2 Number 1 TYSON GUNDI : Flew around in 17.27 and looks an early maiden winner for Christine Bennett.
Race 3 Number 6 TALKING TOMMY : Made up many lengths in the run home after drifting a long way back and is one to follow on an each way basis.
