20190514 – Mandurah Tuesday

“Hello Kelly continues love affair with Mandurah”

Smart short-courser and 405m specialist Hello Kelly overcame the awkward draw of box six to win tonight’s Giddyup Quaddie Time Grade 5. The Wayne Beamish prepared 26kg bitch held off late challenges from Stockton and Westdale Ares to salute in 23.03. She had been in great form winning over the 405m journey in a swift 22.79 late last month. This evening she overcame a few bumps in transit hence the slower time. Her Mandurah record now stands at an impeccable 10 appearances for 6 wins and 3 seconds. Earlier in the night Beamish lost narrowly with Sunset Moo Moo who almost stole victory at the fixed odds of $31.00.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 5 Number 4 WESTDALE ARES : Stormed home late to finish third after finding bother early on.

Race 6 Number 6 JUNK YARD MUPPET : Won brilliantly first up in 27.61 and will strip fitter second up.

WORKED UP MOMENT (Barcia Bale- Luba Monelli) broke through for his Maiden victory at his 12th attempt. The Bill Choules trained dog ran past Spray And Wipe comping to the home corner and then held off litter sister Loved Up Moment in the run to the wire scoring by 3/4 length in 31.14.

HEZA HARLEY (Barcia Bale- She’s Historic) jumped to the lead from box 8 and raced away from his rivals to win by 3 lengths in 17.61. The Dave Brown trained dog hadn’t won in 10 prior starts at Northam and had only won once from 38 starts over all.

WAYNE’S ROCKET (Hades Rocket- Cawbourne Cobra) showed speed from box 1 and continued her dominance from the inside draw scoring her 4th win from 6 starts from the red. The John Righetti trained bitch  won by 2 1/4 lengths from Joe Man in 17.57.

MIKEY’S RANT (Kinloch Brae- Starlight Shine) charged down the leader It’s A Storm going down the back straight and went on to record a PB 30.06 in winning by 2 1/4. The Paul Stuart trained dog had been checked the previous start when finishing 5th behind It’s A Storm in the final of the Mandurah Derby.

INCREDIBLE HERO (Barcia Bale- Oya Nine Wonwon) jumped to the front and was most impressive in leading throughout at his first try over the 600 metres. The Frances Farrell trained pup had finished third at his previous start in the final of the Mandurah Derby behind It’s A Storm. The black dog won by 9 lengths in a slick 34.66.

EIGHTY EIGHT (Fernando Bale- Starlight Delly) upset his kennel mate and odds on favourite Starlight Yoyo after leading from box 3. The blue dog had been unable to lead in his past 8 starts, however with the small field he shot to the front and scored by 2 3/4 lengths over Winsome Bossman in 29.89.

20190510 – Mandurah Friday – Oaks Final

“Fancy Francene wins Greyhounds WA Mandurah Oaks”

A handy field was assembled for tonight’s $12,000 Mandurah Oaks Final with former Victorian Fancy Francene being sent out an odds on favourite from box four. The daughter of Barcia Bale ran second in her heat from box eight after being galloped on at the first turn. Tonight she improved at box rise and zipped to an early lead with the two heat winners Banjo’s Girl (box 6) and It’s A Diamond (box 7) also jumping quickly. Fancy Francene surged a few lengths clear at half way but couldn’t shake off Banjo’s Girl who was sticking to her guns. Turning for home Banjo’s Girl loomed as a threat as she closed to within two lengths but then wobbled a bit wide which allowed Fancy Francene to claim the feature win. She scored by two lengths in a smart 27.52 for Nambeelup trainer Chris Halse. The Rod Noden prepared Banjo’s Girl finished a gallant second ahead of the fast finishing Spritely Dove who snatched third. Fancy Francene at the young age of two years has now started 13 times for 4 wins, 7 minor placings and over $25,000 in earnings.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 7 NEW WORLD ORDER : Ran on nicely after not beginning well and having traffic problems throughout.

Race 4 Number 2 BROOKSY MONELLI : Made up many lengths again after a poor jump and might be ready for a rise in distance.
