CAIRNLEA OLLIE (Premier Fantasy- Cairnlea Ellie) burst to the front from box 5 and was never threatened as he raced clear to win the opening heat of the Avon Valley Challenge. The Tim Mullany trained dog recently came to WA and was placed on debut behind Bushman’s Luck before heading to Darwin for their cup series. After having no luck in his heat he returned to WA with a 4 length win over the 588 metres in 34.78. The black dog defeated Toodle Lou by 3 lengths in 34.85 in his heat win. His full brother Cairnlea Kenny finished third behind West On Augie in the recent Crocmedia National Sprint Championship final.
EGYPTIAN PIRATE (Where’s Pedro- Little Egyptian) claimed the leader Techno near the line to claim the second heat of the Avon Valley Challenge. The Ricky Valenti trained dog was having just his second start at Northam and after finding trouble last week, the white and black dog proved to good scoring by a half length in 35.00.
