“Ladon weaves magic to win over 302m”

Lake Clifton based chaser Ladon recovered from a poor start to win tonight’s Free Entry TABtouch Park Novice over 302m. The son of Kinloch Brae hadn’t won since last October and after twenty metres looked unlikely to win again. However he gathered momentum quickly and reeled in the leaders before shooting through on their inside to take the lead. He dashed away at the top of the straight and scored by four lengths in a smart 17.31. Race favourite Is She What missed the kick badly but was able to salvage second place for Graeme Hall. Former NSW chaser Rosa’s Girl finished third for Southern River trainer Ben MacLean. Ladon has now started 30 times for 3 wins and 11 minor placings.


Race 4 Number 8 CROCODILE DAISY : Showed plenty of speed to overcome box 8 over 405m and win in 22.87.

Race 5 Number 8 COSMIC COLADA : Loomed as a threat in the middle stages before being bumped wide. Has ability.
