“All Zipped Up takes Summer Chase for Kavanagh”

The Summer Chase is a distance event that has been held since 1988 and run over a variety of distances ranging from 600m to 740m. Notable winners are Sandalisa (1995), Fly Guy (2001), Lewie The Legend (2005), Neil Monelli (2018) and Redcap Monelli (2021). Mambo Monelli started a warm favourite in this year’s edition after lowering the track record in his heat. He led all the way from box one and clocked a sizzling 34.20 but faced a tougher assignment tonight given he had to overcome box six in the early stages. All Zipped Up (box 2) and West On Mia (box 7) flew out and All Zipped Up with the inside advantage held the lead. Mambo Monelli made ground rapidly in the middle stages to challenge but was unable to wrestle the lead away from All Zipped Up. All Zipped Up led throughout for Nambeelup trainer Sean Kavanagh and took his career earnings over $125,000 for the Peter Cameron managed Big Boy Brae Syndicate. David Hobby runners Mambo Monelli and Cascade Monelli filled the minor placings respectively.

“Redcap Monelli overcomes box eight to win Summer Chase Final”

Redcap Monelli had been finding plenty of trouble in his races and again drew awkwardly for tonight’s $30,000 Summer Chase Final.

Sir Monty zoomed to an early lead and at half way Redcap Monelli was fifth on the rail and at least seven lengths from the leader’s nose. He weaved between runners and flashed late to claim a spectacular victory in 34.91, defeating Sir Monty by one length. Outsider Lilly Lana finished third and Renewed was fourth. Redcap Monelli took his earnings over $90,000 for David Hobby and has now won 12 of 43 career starts.

20201003 – Cannington Saturday – Distance Potential Heats

“Rambo’s Boy wins Distance Potential Heat for Enzo”

Promising youngster Rambo’s Boy drew awkwardly tonight in the first heat of the Distance Potential series (600m). From box five he began moderately before accelerating through the first turn and finding the lead. Former Queenslander Winlock Power couldn’t match the son of Kinloch Brae in the middle stages and was unable to make ground in the home straight. Rambo’s Boy cruised to the line, winning in a smart 35.00 given it was his debut over the distance. Winlock Power held second position ahead of the fast finishing Zipping Vegas who whizzed home for Serpentine trainer Dwayne Jovanovic. Race favourite West On Roger began only fairly before being squeezed out on entering the home straight on the first occasion. Rambo’s Boy now boasts the impeccable career record of 22 starts for 7 wins and 12 minor placings. He is owned by the same connections as the Perth Cup winning Equanimity, owned by Robbie Brankstone and trained by Enzo Crudeli. Twenty minutes later Rambo’s Boy’s full brother Historic Time took out the second heat. Both have drawn awkwardly for next Saturday’s Final.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 4 SHIRAKABA : Motored home to win after her usual slow getaway and shows staying potential.

Race 3 Number 5 RIPPIN’ CROW : Cashed in on some trouble at the front of the field to win but was rushing into the contest regardless, is racing very well.
