“Benelli Monelli breaks maiden status for Beard”

The Shane Beard (pictured)prepared Benelli Monelli started an even money favourite in tonight’s Elders Insurance Call Justin Maiden over 405m. After being a runner up at 7 of his 21 career starts the son of Fabregas loomed as the hardest to beat in a small field of five. Following a good jump he was out-paced to the first turn by Flashtastic but once he became balanced Benelli Monelli was able to reel in the pacemaker and score by four lengths. His time of 23.31 was only fair but it was a deserved break through given the amount of times he’d finished second. Flashtastic battled on to finish second for Tony Williams and Houdini Flyer ran third for Dwayne Jovanovic.
