20150806 Northam Thursday

BELT UP YUNDERUP broke her maiden status in start nine this afternoon at Northam over 509m.
The Tim Mullany-trained chaser set up the win with early speed from the red rug and avoided trouble around the first corner.
She got a little tired late in the race, but had built a strong lead to win ahead of Blazin Glove and the fast finishing Stinky Pete in a quick time of 29.90.
Race favourite was the debutant Woodvale Flyer who found early trouble after only a fair getaway from box four.
The daughter of Collision and Hot Irish finished strongly into fifth placing and is one to follow next start from a favourable draw.
FLY BAYOU returned to form, winning a grade five over the 297m in 17.41.
The veteran from Graeme Hall’s kennel had been struggling in previous outings before this afternoon’s win.
The victory was career win number 10 from 81 starts.
