“Planet Ox continues to impress at Mandurah”

Brilliant young speedster Planet Ox put in another slashing performance tonight when recovering from a moderate jump to win over 405m in 22.81.

This evening he dwelt at box rise before balancing up and zooming by all of his rivals in the twinkling of an eye. Vernalis Monelli battled on strongly to be the runner up and flashing home for third was Bumper Blaster. Planet Ox is out of Starlight Venus who won 7 of 29 for the same owner Mick Campo.

“Canya Cruise lights up Mandurah”

Highly talented former Queenslander Canya Cruise made amends tonight after meeting with interference and running seventh at his WA debut a week earlier. The speedster arrived in WA with 12 wins from his 22 starts and appreciated room to zoom from box seven. The son of Barcia Bale didn’t fly out of the boxes but balanced up fourth out wide on the track and didn’t take long for him to explode around his rivals and make them look second rate. Canya Cruise mustered like a demon and quickly set up a massive lead before saluting by ten lengths in a blistering 22.60. The Enzo Crudeli prepared Par Peppi ran on nicely for second ahead of Vegas Fun. Canya Cruise is now trained out of Jarrahdale by Krystal Shinners and looks set for a bright career in the west.

“Buster The Brute claims Chase Final”
