20170218 – Cannington Saturday

WOODVALE FLYER (Collision- Hot Irish) showed speed from box 5 and didn’t let her rivals in for a chance of glory as she raced away for a 4 length win in the NPB Security Summer Chase final. The Steve Withers trained bitch has been in outstanding form finishing third in the recent Gr 1 Sky Racing Galaxy final behind Bogie Bekim after winning a heat the week before. The black bitch has now won 10 times from 32 starts.

DANDALUP BRUTUS (Bekim Bale- Rerod Rose) set a new track record from box 1 over the 380 metres. The James Jeffries trained youngster was having just his 8th career start and third over the sprint journey when he lowered the previous record held by Free To All performer Mique by nearly 2 lengths clocking 21.48.

WIJNALDUM (Collision- Mini Emily) showed speed to lead from box 8 and clocked a slick 30.10 in winning on his return to racing. The Jamie Marsh trained dog hadn’t raced since December and improved his box manners with a brilliant start. The black dog has now won 8 times from 18 starts.

Greyhounds to follow:
Race 4 No 8 West On Babe. Clocked a PB 29.82 from box 8 for trainer Chris Halse.

Race 5 No 2 Topology. As tough as they come and will always give his best.
