MISS VALENTINE (Hecton Bale-West On Delly) showed speed from her inside draw and then held off the challengers to win by 1 1/2 lengths over Pop’s Gift in 22.10. The Michael Rylands trained bitch has now won twice from her 6 starts.

WEST ON ODIE (Vanderworp- Times Square) motored around the outside of his rivals from his wide draw before impressively defeating Sunnyside Boy by 1 1/4 lengths in a slick 21.68. The Chris Halse trained dog was having his first try over the 380 metres after 3 recent consecutive wins over the 520 metres including a win in a heat of the Gr 2 WA Derby.

CORPORAL KUNA (My Redeemer-Moonshine Mandy) upset her more fancied rivals including kennel mate and favourite Flashing Kuna by leading throughout over the 600 metres. The Michael Johnston trained dog had only won once from his previous 21 starts over the 600 metres.

ELITE MACHINE (Aussie Infrared-Pat’s Lass) led from box 2 and registered his 19th career win from 34 starts. The Jamie Marsh trained dog won by 5 lengths over Hinto in 29.63. Marsh and owner Daniel Williams are now contemplating a trip to Brisbane for their rich carnival.
