“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.

“Lord Reddan comes from last to win over 405m”

Evergreen sprinter Lord Reddan was heavily backed to win tonight’s Sign Strategy Masters event from box four. He started $1.40 fixed odds and gave his backers heart flutters after completely missing the kick. The John Iwanyk prepared Mouse Lomar found the front and was looking very hard to beat at the first turn. Lord Reddan had manoeuvred down to the rail and was beginning to make ground rapidly, taking the shortest route home. As Mouse Lomar straightened Lord Reddan was within a length on the inside and charging home. He took the lead with sixty metres to go and powered away to score in 23.16. Mouse Lomar held second by a nose ahead of the fast finishing Pacman To Excel. Lord Reddan is trained by Lexia Isaac and has now started 96 times for 18 wins and 28 minor placings.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Trial 1 Number 8 BIG BOY PADDY : Missed the start before charging around the outside to win in a smart 17.35.

Race 5 Number 4 LOTTIE DENO : Finished powerfully along the rail after blowing the start.

“Go Pro relishes the switch to Mandurah”

Highly promising sprinter Go Pro made his Mandurah debut this afternoon and couldn’t have been more impressive. The son of Lonesome Cry had impressed at Cannington over 520m, leading in most of his races and making the podium. His 27 career starts before today’s race yielded just 2 victories but another 15 minor placings. Trained out of Banjup by Cosi Dagostino the 31kg brindle dog was always going to have admirers once he dropped in class and distance. Sent out at a firming $1.75, from box two he began cleanly before out-mustering his rivals and finding an easy lead. From that point he was never going to lose and cruised to an easy win in 22.91 over Hello I’m Rongo and Westdale Bandit. Westdale Bandit who had impressed at his previous run when victorious in 22.66, missed the kick before doing a great job to salvage third position. Go Pro is owned by Sharon Wells and despite only having won 3 races has earned over $25,000 thanks mainly to all of his City Class minor place stake money.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 1 HELLO I’M GISELE : Rallied late to lose by half a length and also possesses great box manners.

Race 6 Number 6 LAST NOT TODAY : Flashed home to snatch second behind Zambora Rose.

“Cosmic Malteze chalks up 20th career win”

Fantastic money-spinner Cosmic Malteze put in a mighty performance to win tonight’s $29 Tuesday Buffet Masters Stake. The son of Cosmic Rumble was clearly last to leave the boxes and race favourites Mouse Lomar and Stockton settled in first and second positions respectively. At half way Stockton ($1.30 fixed odds) levelled up with Mouse Lomar and was looking the goods before Cosmic Malteze burst home to beat them both. The victory took his tally to 20 after 105 starts and he has also been placed on another 20 occasions. He is trained out of Nambeelup by Tania Thomas and has now accumulated more than $63,000.

“Stockton soars to comfortable Masters Victory”

Mandurah track specialist Stockton relished drawing box one and the drop to veteran company when he won tonight’s Secure Racing Logistics Grade 5 Masters event. The son of Rumble Supreme boxed cleanly from box one before out-mustering his rivals to the first turn and leading effortlessly. The Jim Rennick trained chaser made every post a winner, ultimately winning by three lengths in the smart time of 22.98. The John Iwanyk prepared Morris Memory chased gallantly to run a bold second, holding off the Enzo Crudeli trained Obstruction who powered to the line. Stockton now boasts the impressive career record of 77 starts for 15 wins, 25 minor placings and over $38,000 in earnings. Morris Memory has now started 135 times for 12 wins, 52 minor placings and over $43,000 in stake earnings. The third placed Obstruction probably takes the cake when it comes to career achievements having raced a whopping 152 times for 28 wins, 56 minors and over $74,000 in the bank. Stockton snapped a losing sequence of eight tonight and given the handy time looks set to win many more.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Trial 2 Number 2 LOVE ME TINDER : Won impressively in a fast 22.71. Looks to be an early winner.

Race 2 Number 4 HELLO I’M CHANEL : Displayed wonderful early pace before being pipped on the post. Will win plenty over shorter distances.
