“Bago Balleo impresses for McLaren”

Strong finisher Bago Balleo was strongly supported in tonight’s NPB Security Grade 5 and didn’t let his supporters down. After a fair getaway the Andrew McLaren prepared chaser mustered into a clear second at the first turn, tracking the speedy Draw For Doe. At the top of the straight Bago Balleo took over from Draw For Doe before surging away to win by four lengths in a fast 22.81. Draw For Doe held second ahead of the fast finishing Double Destiny who put in an eye-catching performance. Bago Balleo now has 5 wins and 6 minor placings from his 16 career starts and he is owned by G. Smith in partnership with N. Halden. Pictured : Andrew McLaren

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 2 FREEWAY BLASTER : Hit the line hard along the fence at juicy odds and may be looking for longer.

Race 3 Number 5 RUMBO SMASHER : Was inconvenienced by a loose muzzle in the front straight which may have cost him winning.
