“Phantom Monelli surges into Sandgroper Final”
Track specialist Phantom Monelli finished like a train to take out tonight’s first heat of The Sandgroper for leading trainer David Hobby. The son of Cosmic Rumble had built up an impeccable record over 405m at Mandurah but at his only 490m start to date had finished third. Tonight he settled in third position before storming home to win by a length in 27.91. Initial leader West On Harmony ran second to also make the final ahead of rank outsiders Fired Up Billy (third) and Bella Sunset (fourth). Phantom Monelli has now started 44 times for 9 wins and 17 minor placings, all of which have been at the Mandurah circuit.
