“Pecorino Monelli wins maiden final for David Hobby”

Leading Nambeelup based trainer David Hobby held a strong hand in tonight’s Prime Trophies maiden final over 400m. Four littermates (Sunset Spitfire x Flake Monelli) namely Raclette Monelli, Pecorino Monelli, Cheddar Monelli and Halloumi Monelli drew the four inside boxes and were all in the market. Race favourite Pecorino Monelli took advantage of box two to find the lead at the first turn before winning by three lengths in 22.56. Outsiders Benny The Bull and Sapphire Star filled the minor placings but never looked like serious threats to the winner. The winner’s mother Flake Monelli was a freak race bitch winning 30 of her 52 career starts over distances ranging from 490m to 715m.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 4 GO GETTEM NELLY : Won handsomely and looked strong on the line, winning by 3.25 lengths.

Race 4 Number 2 SIMONE KEEPING : Overcame early bumps to finish a close up fourth in a handy time.
