“Old marvel Franc Monelli wins again”

Greybeard chaser Franc Monelli overcame a wide draw to chalk up his 33rd career victory in tonight’s Free Entry TABtouch Park Mixed 5/6 over 302m. The son of High Earner was well supported into favourite after 2 wins and 2 placings from his last 4 starts over the 302m distance. He began cleanly and after working hard to clear his opponents kicked away at the top of the straight and scored by three lengths. Southern River trainer Jen Thompson prepared both minor placegetters with Space Ghost second, a length in front of My Fire Fabio. Franc Monelli is out of Fantasy Monelli who has been a wonderful producing dam. Some of her progeny include Houdini Monelli ($168,000), Penny Monelli ($116,000), Sharon Monelli ($74,000), Jed Monelli ($63,000) and Harry Monelli ($42,000). Harry Monelli famously led the 2013 Perth Cup Final from box 8 at cricket score odds and finished fifth behind Dyna Nalin.


Race 2 Number 4 RED EYE FLYER : Ran a nice second on debut behind the highly promising Royce Monelli.

Race 3 Number 8 GO DANNO GO : Overcame box eight to break his maiden status in a smart 23.04.

“Olympic Mariner prevails for Pete Brown in Novice”

Noted strong finisher Olympic Mariner improved at box rise tonight in the Track Fashion Provincial Novice over 405m. The son of Destini Fireball began cleanly from box two and at the first turn settled on the coat-tails of leader Monrovia. The well supported and odds-on favourite Yunderup Tux had traffic problems from box five and settled a long way back. Turning for home the ex-Victorian and Greg Horne prepared Monrovia led but Olympic Mariner pulled to the outside to challenge. He surged to victory and won by two lengths in a new PB of 22.87. Monrovia gripped on for second ahead of the fast finishing Yunderup Tux and Laid Back Albert finished fourth. Olympic Mariner has only won 3 of 32 but has been placed on another 8 occasions and tonight’s performance was career best.


Race 2 Number 5 OXLEY STEEL : Sizzled clear of rivals early before posting an all the way win in 22.72.

Race 3 Number 4 VOLLER : Didn’t have much luck but worked home well out wide and will take beating next Tuesday in the final.

“Nobelium wins again for Erenshaw”

Explosive breaker Nobelium defeated a red hot field tonight when she led throughout to win the Giddyup Quaddie Time Mixed 4/5 over 405m. The daughter of Dyna Double One burst to the front before clocking a flying 6.59 to the first marker. She powered away to score by three lengths over the fast finishing Westdale Ares who charged home after a moderate getaway. Maude Monelli finished third for David Hobby ahead of Abba Monelli who is trained by Pete Brown. Nobelium has now started 13 times for 6 wins and 5 minor placings. Her winning time of 22.65 was a new PB which will see her competitive at the top level over the 405m distance.


Race 3 Number 3 LEILANI’S LAD : Soldiered on strongly for second at huge odds.

Race 4 Number 3 WESTDALE DRIFTER : Put in another faultless display leading throughout in a slick 22.56.

“Consortium debuts with a brilliant victory”

Two year old first starter Consortium exploded out of the boxes to win tonight’s Essential Refrigeration Services Maiden heat in a slick 22.59. The son of American sire KC And All crossed equal favourite Dove’s Cry (box one) at the first turn before surging away to win by six lengths. The Cosi Dagostino prepared Dove’s Cry held second and another five lengths away third was the Brad Cook trained Fairy Monelli. Krystal Shinners trains Consortium who is raced by owners from the St. Norberts Football Club. He weighs in at a hefty 35kg and looks set for a very bright future.


Race 2 Number 5 BIG DOVE : Ran on gamely to be the runner up and hit the line with power in his legs.

Race 4 Number 3 SHE’S STARDUST : Caught the eye to finish just behind the placegetters after striking plenty of early interference.
