“West On Axel hits top gear for Halse”
Box eight certainly assisted West On Axel tonight when he whizzed around the opposition to score brilliantly over 490m. The son of Bella Infrared received a strong shepherd across by Prancing Turbo (box seven) before marching clear in the middle stages. He won by five lengths in a slick 27.63 and defeated the fast finishing Tell It Walking who snatched second on the line over Prancing Turbo. West On Axel was a sharp improver at the track after being unplaced at his five previous Mandurah appearances. He also provided Nambeelup trainer Chris Halse with a training treble after West On Nosey won the first race and West On Grit took out the third.
HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :
Trial 4 Number 1 BURNING PASSION : Qualified in an electric 27.61 for Linda Britton.
Race 5 Number 7 OLD SCHOOL COOL : Overcame traffic to run a bold second and will go close next start from a better box.
