“Spur Monelli digs deep to score over 302m”

Spur Monelli turns three next month and won his eighth race tonight, reeling in leader Kaos Be Cool and posting a smart 17.28. He had finished fourth at his four previous runs and hadn’t been far way, finishing no more than 4.25 lengths from the winner. He sprung out of box five and matched Kaos Be Cool before being out-mustered in the middle stages. Turning for home he surged strongly at Kaos Be Cool, eventually gaining the upper hand and winning by a length. Canute’s Law flew late to snatch second and a half head away third was Kaos Be Cool. Spur Monelli provided Canning Vale trainer Brad Cook with an early double after Cher Keeping also won over 302m earlier in the night. Cook now boasts a whopping 103 winners for the calendar year.


Race 3 Number 2 SPACE GHOST : Battled on gamely to finish second in approximately 23.05.

Race 5 Number 7 DARK BEYOND : Finished strongly to be the runner up in around 22.91.

“Miss Bamsy salutes over 302m to achieve 29th career win”

Former Mandurah Cup winner Miss Bamsy overcame box eight to win tonight’s Elders Insurance Free For All over 302m. The daughter of Fabregas was well supported but after a moderate jump was fifth and wide after twenty metres. Burn The Jetts was shooting for four successive victories over the distance and found the lead for Nambeelup trainer Tony Scott. At the top of the straight Burn The Jetts led by a length but Miss Bamsy was closing fast and surged to the front with fifty metres to go. The Jackie Wilson trained speedster scored by half a length over Burn The Jetts and another two lengths away third was Nosey Flyer.

“Towering Inferno snaps losing sequence of 14 for Wayne Rose”

Short-courser Towering Inferno notched his fourth career win tonight at his 58th start for Nambeelup trainer Wayne Rose and owner Stu Dowton. The son of Cosmic Chief began fairly and settled in second position behind runaway leader and race favourite Jerry Gundi. However after 100m Jerry Gundi looked to sustain a minor injury and came back to the field abruptly, allowing Towering Inferno to take the lead. He dashed clear in the front straight to score by five lengths in a new PB of 17.50. The Shane Beard trained Jax’s Giant ran on nicely for second ahead of the Lexia Isaac prepared Gypsy Said Run. Towering Inferno turns four in January and has now earned more than $6,500 in earnings.


Race 2 Number 2 STAN’S GIRL : Soldiered on strongly to be beaten narrowly in a smart time for Darren Rowe.

Race 5 Number 6 HELLO HARRY : Swept around the outside to win easily in 23.02 against handy opposition.

“Westdale Prince returns to winner’s list”

Highly promising sprinter Westdale Prince appreciated box two tonight when he began cleanly before out-mustering rivals and leading throughout in 22.89. The son of Kinloch Brae dashed away in the middle stages and while Hello I’m Steelo and Metal Buster both made ground he was never in any danger of losing the race. Three lengths was the official margin and he has now started 9 times for owner Jai Jormanainen-Davis for 6 wins and 2 minor placings. Back in August he recorded a sizzling 22.78 and his early speed is his biggest asset. The win provided trainer Andrew McLaren with a double after Nipper Hook broke his maiden status earlier in the night over 302m.


Race 3 Number 8 SHINBONER : Was posted wide at the first turn before running on strongly for third.

Race 6 Number 1 HE’S DECISION : Held the lead and controlled the race, providing trainer Darren Rowe with a double.
