20150326 Mandurah Thursday


Magnifico could not have been more impressive in his WA debut tonight at TABtouch Park Mandurah in the TABtouch Grade 5 over 302m tonight.
After leaving the boxes slowly in the second race on the card, the short distance did not worry the Daryl Neilsen-trained chaser who rounded the field with ease turning for home.
176-start veteran Rap About led from the inside alley while Flaming Pickle applied pressure.
Magnifico gave them wind burn as he flew by and went on to beat Flaming Pickle and Jayden Ross in a very fast 17.08 seconds.
He should only improve with longer racing and more wins are on the way.
The same could be said about the gritty Booby Rose.
Trainer Phillip Worthington would be silly not to hand in a request for his chaser Bobby Rose to start from box six every start if his last two efforts with the green rug continue.
The black bitch out of Talk’s Cheap jumped smartly in race one, the $29 Thursday Buffet Grade 5, over 302m, but had to fight off a determined Red Rattler and won by just a nose.
Bobby Rose has won twice this month, both times running in green.
The winner and runner-up both clocked a swift 17.41 seconds around the short course.
Beard also prepared the third place getter, Indian Li.
