20171103 – Mandurah Friday

“Dandalup Brutus wins The Chase Final”

The Chase heats were held over 405m last Friday night and they produced a quality field for tonight’s $10,525 final. Desert Rampage (box 6) and Dandalup Brutus (box 1) shared favouritism at $2.90 ahead of Miss Bamsy (box 8) who was sent out at odds of $4.20. Miss Bamsy had been well supported after winning her previous nine starts on the trot over the 405m journey. Unfortunately for her connections she missed the start badly and was never a winning hope. Desert Rampage also hesitated at box rise whereas Dandalup Brutus began swiftly and at the first turn shared the lead with outsider Issue (box 7). Leaving the back straight Dandalup Brutus used his inside advantage who sneak a two length lead over Issue while the likes of Smooth, Reality Bomber and Alfa Tonic tangled and lost ground. Dandalup Brutus shot away in the front straight and increased his winning margin to four lengths. Issue held down second for Michael Johnston and Alfa Tonic finished third for Andrew McLaren. Dandalup Brutus is prepared by West Pinjarra based trainer Corey White and has now had 40 starts for 15 wins and over $48,000 in earnings.
