“Cooper’s Monelli delivers for Michael Johnston”

Nicely bred chaser Cooper’s Monelli improved at box rise and settled third at the first turn before running down $2.40 race favourite Durham Lass. Durham Lass was purring along in the lead before Cooper’s Monelli launched a sizzling challenge along the rail. He burst away near the line to score by a length in a smart time of 22.98. Durham Lass finished second and two lengths away third was Prime Martini. Cooper’s Monelli is owned by the ‘On The Far Syndicate’ and tonight took his career record to 11 wins and 13 minor placings from 65 starts.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 3 Number 1 ADVENTURE QUEEN : Put in a solid second at her WA debut.

Race 4 Number 6 PRIME MARTINI : Made up ground on some handy types at the end of 405m.
