“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.

The David Hobby trained dog had finished second in his heat the week before behind Fire Lighter. Once he sat so close to the favourite Sunset Frazier the race was his to lose and he won by 1 1/2 lengths in 29.72.

“Rosie Browne wins at 60/1 for Ian Bunny”

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. She then leveled up at the top of the home straight before clawing her way to the front. The daughter of Sennachie saluted narrowly and recorded a handy 22.70 on a track that wasn’t conjusive to fast times. Pecorino Monelli held second a nose ahead of kennel-mate Sunset Lightning. 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.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 7 BLING IT BLACK : Caught the eye late with a fast finishing second after giving away a big headstart.

Race 5 Number 1 PROM QUEEN FUN : Battled on gamely for a nice second over 400m.
