“Miss Vivas wins a keenly contested Sign Strategy Novice”

Race Five tonight was a very competitive race with no less than six greyhounds looking like a winning chance at the top of the home straight. Odds-on favourite Pecorino Monelli led from box one but looked very vulnerable turning for home with challengers galore. The Damien Crudeli trained Miss Vivas swept down the outside to claim victory in 22.95. She is owned by the Susanne Smith managed Champagne Syndicate and has now on 3 of 17. A neck away second was Rosie Browne and a length away third was Sunset Lightning.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 3 OUR GIRL BLOOM : Improved at box rise to lead throughout in a handy 17.31.

Race 4 Number 6 UNCOMPROMISED : Led throughout from box six and was always in control of winning the race.

Rose Browne caused a big upset in tonight’s fourth event, the Stephen Mita Novice over 400m. $1.50 favourite Pecorino Monelli led from box two but Rosie Browne quickly mustered to second and settled on the outside of the favourite leaving the back straight.

Rosie Browne is raced by the Lowry Lowry Syndicate and is trained by Ian Bunny. Her littermates Mrs. Cropley, Another James, Fancy That Fred and Kentish Lass are all early winners too.
