“Faulkner improves sharply for Shane Beard”

Nambeelup trainer Shane Beard is no stranger to winning a race with a greyhound at long odds. Tonight he ‘saddled up’ Faulkner over 405m from box seven and having not won since May he was sent out at $24.90 with the WA TAB. The son of Magic Sprite flew out and was able to cross to the lead at the first turn. The closest pursuers as they left the back straight were Wicked Pursuit (box 3) and Bago Balleo (box 5) but they bumped and both lost ground, allowing Faulkner to dash clear. Flintstone Gundi worked around the outside into second position but was no match for Faulkner who won by two lengths. Flinstone Gundi finished second at rough odds ahead of race favourite Bago Balleo. Faulkner ended a long losing sequence and has now won 9 of 46 career starts. Pictured : Shane Beard

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 4 Number 5 ROBBIE’S ENTITY : Showed tenacity to overcome interference and win by a neck.

Race 6 Number 8 VOLADOR : Hit the line hard after a bump at the first turn. Is ready to win.
