20170724 – Northam Monday

“Choules snares training double at Northam”

Bakers Hill trainer William Donald Choules produced an unlikely double today at TABtouch Park Northam when Glassy ($37.00) and Jazz Me Up ($2.80) took out races four and six. Glassy was having his seventeenth career start and after a fast jump settled second behind the Byford trained Time Flies. He had only managed two minor placings from his sixteen career starts and was justifiably sent out at huge odds. With fifty metres to go Glassy began to close the gap and he arrived just in time to win by a neck. The Jazz Me Up victory didn’t come as a surprise especially from box one. She drove to the early lead before dashing clear to score by two lengths in 17.48. Choules prepared Perth Cup winner Frantic Night to a famous victory back in 1991.

Race 1 Number 7 LAYTOWN : Was mustering quickly before being forced very wide and is worth another chance.

Race 5 Number 5 BETSTAKKER : Nothing went right and he kept coming and finished second. Should win next start.
