20160617 – Mandurah Friday

“Tarks Caliber ends long losing sequence”

Strong finishing short-courser Tarks Caliber (pictured)finished like a train to win tonight’s Get The TABtouch Grade 5. Odds on favourite Hello I’m Leo worked hard to find the front and looked the winner on straighetening before Tarks Caliber jumped up out of the ground to snatch victory. The margin was half a length in 23.01 and the unlikely defeat of Hello I’m Leo left the majority of punters feeling for their wallet. Tarks Caliber is trained out of Southern River by Michelle Beamish and hadn’t tasted success since last November when a winner from box seven. The previous Friday he caught the eye with a fast finishing second and on Tuesday he gained a run as a reserve and flew home for third. He is owned by Gerrit Knobben and now has 10 wins and 17 minor placings from 59 career starts.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 6 CYCLONE MOUSIE : Rocketed to the line to score in 22.87.

Race 4 Number 2 CALAHAN ROCKS : Took another step up to Grade 3 company but zoomed home for another solid third. Always a big show from an inside alley.
