“Dandalup Cross breaks maiden for May Leach”

Mepunga Blazer sired chaser Dandalup Cross overcame a bump at box rise to win today’s Afternoon in the Valley Maiden over 297m. The 30kg black dog had only managed 2 minor placings from his first 11 starts but put on a very solid chasing display today. He began well before being bumped back to third and then cruised home for a two length victory in 17.69. The John Righetti trained Charos Chief filled second position and a length away third was race favourite Moment To Shock for Billy Choules. Dandalup Cross is owned by B and C Moir who race all of the ‘Dandalup’ chasers and more Northam wins will be in store for this fellow under the mentorship of Beverley trainer May Leach. Leach has enjoyed success in the past with the likes of Dungeon Master, Sarge, Missoni, Chasing Fun, Hilton, Port And Lemon and Westdale Rose.


Race 3 Number 4 LIL WAVES : Appreciated the switch to Northam and won easily in a promising 17.28.

Race 4 Number 4 KISHKA : Showed plenty of mid race muster to take the lead and win in 17.25.
