20150619 Mandurah Friday

EXPECT A GUESS did not even win her heat to get into the middle distance challenge final last week, but was super impressive in winning the final tonight.
Jumping from the red box, the Christine Robartson-trained chaser avoided trouble, hitting the front from at the first corner and did not look back.
Provincial Bear was also impressive in running second, four lengths behind the winner who won in a time of 36.86.
It was the first time Expect A Guess has cracked the 37 second barrier over the Mandurah 647m, after running 37.39 on debut last week.
Deadly Boy jumped from the pink box and was strong late to finish third.

Greyhounds to follow:

EXTROVERT. (R2 N8): The Shane Shinners-trained chaser did not win the grade 4 race over 405m tonight, but showed good signs in his return from a two and a half month break. Extrovert was beaten by a talented greyhound in Zipping Socks, but clocked a personal best time of 22.75. He was struggling to win a race before heading for a spell and looks like the freshen up has done him the world of good.

LACHLAN ZOO (R4 N1): Has proven dangerous from an inside draw recently and did the same tonight with the red rug. Stopped the clock at a quick 27.52 in the grade 4, 490m race after jumping on the bunny.
