“Soda Saville digs deep to win over 647m”

The son of Barcia Bale pushed hard at the first turn between runners to find the lead and break away from his rivals.

“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
2) WEST ON COBRA
3) BROMINE
4) GANGNAM MONELLI
5) SPEED BANDIT
6) SKILANDIS
7) ZEAK
8) WEST ON GRIT
9) WEST ON SOHO
10) LARKIN MONELLI

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 2 Number 6 MARKUS RHODE : Showed amazing mid race speed to catch up to brother Angus Rhode near half way.

“Power Train makes it successive Mandurah wins for Max Julien”

Zambora Brockie youngster Power Train was unplaced at his first seven starts and in March was sent out at the huge win odds of 70/1. On May 27 he improved sharply when Stoneville trainer Max Julien switched him to the Mandurah track and he defeated the talented Bundegi over 405m in a fast 22.82. Tonight he backed up that performance with another victory from box six in 22.85. Power Train is out of Chill Out Julie and is a full brother to other promising youngsters Western Delight, Simba Dasher and King Of Saxony.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 4 Number 4 HEIDI ROSE : Showed terrific early zip and battled on gamely to hold second.

Race 5 Number 8 MITIGATION : After being pushed wide he stormed home for a close up fourth.
