“Snazzy Whompo relishes inside draw to win over 520m”

Enzo Crudeli trained chaser Snazzy Whompo was well supported from box two tonight where he was sent out second favourite at $2.80. He didn’t begin well but showed terrific mid race pace to take the lead after 150m. The son of Fernando Bale dashed away in the back straight and scored by just over a length in a smart 30.10. Former Victorian chaser Tanoan Creek stuck on well to be the runner up for Wanneroo trainer Colin Bainbridge. Five lengths away in third position was the initial pace-maker Starlight April for Linda Smithson. Snazzy Whompo is raced by the Ten Eighty Syndicate and has now started 12 times for 4 wins and 5 minor placings. The triumph also gave Enzo Crudeli an early double after Ookinaki scored over 380m.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Trial Number 4 I’M YOUR MAN : Accelerated quickly to find the lead before leading throughout in 30.58, looks an early winner.

Race 1 Number 7 LOOKOUT SNICKERS : Left the boxes fairly but mustered like the wind to set up a race winning break. Looks set to lead more races than she doesn’t.

“Optical shoots the lights out at first race start”

Nambeelup trainer Paul Stuart unveiled another promising youngster tonight when juvenile Optical led throughout to win the Better Your Bet TABtouch Maiden over 405m. The daughter of American sire KC And All won her Qualifying Trial last Tuesday by a whopping sixteen lengths and recorded the handy winning time of 22.90. This evening she was sent out at the prohibitive odds of $1.10 with TABtouch and after beginning like a gazelle made every post a winner in an amazing 22.59. The Wayne Beamish trained Hello Darcey finished a distant second, some eleven lengths astern of the winner. Optical is out of former handy race bitch Wired For Speed who won nine of her twenty career starts including a 490m victory at Mandurah in a flying 27.51. Optical turns two years old in November and looks set for a very bright future with her blinding early speed. Pictured : Paul Stuart

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 2 TALKING TOMMY : Had excuses and is worth following, he’ll win a maiden soon.

Race 4 Number 2 LAUGH OUT LOUD : Began well and was strong at the first turn to hold the lead before winning in 23.07.
