20221021 – Mandurah Friday

“Fire Cloud zooms into Nambeelup Cup Final”

The Nambeelup Cup is a new 490m series restricted to Provincial 4 or 5 graded chasers. Four heats were contested this evening with first and second from each race proceeding to next Friday’s Final. Southern River based speedster Fire Cloud accelerated to an early lead in heat one and never looked like being caught, cruising to a two length victory in 27.62. The son of My Redeemer had been unplaced at his three previous Mandurah appearances but thrived with an uncontested lead this evening. He has now won 10 of 41 for trainer Colleen Pierson and will be very hard to catch in the final. The other heat winners were Jimmy Rocks (27.53), Jumpin’ Jules (28.09) and Forge Monelli (27.65).
