“Kaine Buckwell prepares first starter to victory”

Port Kennedy based mentor Kaine Buckwell made his training debut tonight with former David Hobby prepared speedster Raj Monelli. The son of Magic Sprite was well thought of from box one and sent out as a $1.60 favourite. After a clean getaway he drove through on the inside of his rivals to lead and then dashed away to score by three lengths in 17.29. Second favourite Princess Charley had begun well and settled second but was unable to bridge the gap on Raj Monelli who hit the line strongly. Rank outsider Vocal Isla finished third and returned a juicy place dividend of $7.60. Raj Monelli (Magic Sprite x Fantasy Monelli) has now started 21 times for 5 wins and 8 minor placings.
