STARLIGHT BELLA (Barcia Bale- Starlight Delly) bounced out of the boxes and led throughout over the 405 metres in a class filled final of the A1 Salvage and Hardware The Great Western. The Paul Stuart trained dog was the quickest qualifier in his heat and went quicker in the final clocking 22.52 in winning by 6 1/4 lengths over Ramifications.

WAGTAIL KATE (Paddy Whacker- Aella) scored a brilliant win from box 8 for trainer John Iwanyk. The black bitch shot clear to win by 7 lengths in a new PB 22.43. Since joining Iwanyk’s kennel she has won 4 of 5 starts.

ASTRONOMIZE (Kinloch Brae- Starlight Delly) recorded his first win since August last year with a 3/4 length victory over Stangafied in 27.37. The former Gr 1 performer was having his 5th run back from injury and should improve further from what he showed tonight in the small field.

Greyhounds to follow:
Race 1 No 4 Belfast Tommy. Showed toughness to hold on and win by a head in 22.90. Has won 3 in a row and this was his first win in Provincial company.

Race 3 No 1 Baron Impact. Chasing well with 2 wins from last 3 starts for trainer Pete Brown.

Race 4 No 6 Indian Light. Returned from injury with narrow win.
