20220617 – Mandurah Friday

“Gangnam Monelli storms to victory in stormy conditions”

Not many greyhounds are capable of overtaking West On Grit over 405m at Mandurah but that’s exactly what Gangnam Monelli (pictured) did in heat one of The Great Western tonight. West On Grit, last year’s winner of the final set the pace and carved out great time but had no answer for Gangnam Monelli in the home straight. The Lewis Clay prepared Gangnam Monelli soared to a brilliant win and posted a mighty 22.53 in wet conditions. He scored by 2.25 lengths over West On Grit and half a length away third was Skilandis. Gangnam Monelli is raced by Katie Robson and has now won 13 of 41 career starts. The other two heat winners were West On Cobra (22.43) and Bromine (22.54). The box draw for 2022 The Great Western Final :

1) ORSON ASSASSIN
