“Back Creek Bella breaks losing sequence of 21 for Glen Currie”

Wundowie trainer Glen Currie, fresh off a Group Two victory last Friday took out tonight’s Bring Your Crew Along Novice over 405m. Back Creek Bella, a former Northern NSW based chaser hadn’t won for 21 starts spanning back to her maiden win over 420m at Lismore last April. She began like a bullet and enjoyed an uncontested lead before cruising home by four lengths over Stig Monelli and Greta Flash. Her time of 22.93 was smart and she looks set to win many more races if she can replicate those box manners.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 1 YILGARN BLINKY : Overcame a moderate jump to win her maiden in 17.47.

Race 5 Number 9 BROOME TIME : Powered home for a close up third and is nearing a win.

“Prime Candy breaks through for Glen Price”

Speedy sprinter Prime Candy overcame box six to win tonight’s Bring Your Crew Along Novice over 405m. The daughter of Fabregas had been a minor placegetter at her previous five starts in a row for Nambeelup trainer Glen Price. She rushed out of the boxes and quickly found an uncontested lead with former NSW sprinter Macevoy settling in second position. Turning for home Macevoy loomed as a danger but Prime Candy found another gear and was able to score by a comfortable margin (2.25 lengths) in 23.05. Macevoy ran second for Port Kennedy trainer Bob Terrington and third was outsider Nanna’s Nose. Prime Candy is raced by the Prime Racing Syndicate and looks set to be a conistent money-spinner over short distances.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 4 Number 2 WESTDALE HAILEE : Stormed home and will be winning at Mandurah very soon.

Race 5 Number 1 COSMIC TYPHOON : Finished close up behind some very slick types, is nearing an overdue victory.
