20191109 – Cannington Saturday – Young Stars Classic Heats

CHOMP MONELLI (Fernando Bale- Dyna Sandy) railed perfectly down the backs straight to find the lead from kennel mate Royce Monelli before driving away to win by 3 1/2 lengths in a PB 30.02. The David Hobby trained dog goes into the Gr 3 Final of the Young Stars after his heat win and hopes to join Topaz Monelli as Hobby’s other winner in the series.

SUNSET KODIAK (Barcia Bale- Minnesota Nice) showed brilliant speed from her outside draw to lead and then hold out her kennel mates Rolo Monelli and Flake Monelli by a nose in 30.15. The win in the second heat of the Gr 3 Young Stars gives trainer David Hobby 5 of the 8 runners in the final next week.

GRACE ALI (My Bro Fabio- Born Ali) enjoyed the rise in distance as she returned to the winners list with a 1 1/2 length win over Snallygaster in a PB 34.74. The Chris Halse trained bitch has now won 3 times from 6 tries over the 600 metres. The win comes after recent success in a heat of the Gr 2 All Stars Sprint before finishing last behind Alicante Bouchet in the final.

JADE’S BLADE (Kinloch Brae- Bluey’s Fate) led throughout from box 2 to record back to back wins in FFA company. The Joe Dailly trained bitch defeated Two Times Twice by 3/4 length in 29.95. The black bitch won the Puppy Classic earlier in the year as well as the Peter Thomas and Canning Trophy finals.
