“Miss Vivas wins a keenly contested Sign Strategy Novice”

The Damien Crudeli trained Miss Vivas swept down the outside to claim victory in 22.95. She is owned by the Susanne Smith managed Champagne Syndicate and has now on 3 of 17. A neck away second was Rosie Browne and a length away third was Sunset Lightning.

“Rosie Browne wins at 60/1 for Ian Bunny”

Rose Browne caused a big upset in tonight’s fourth event, the Stephen Mita Novice over 400m. $1.50 favourite Pecorino Monelli led from box two but Rosie Browne quickly mustered to second and settled on the outside of the favourite leaving the back straight. She then leveled up at the top of the home straight before clawing her way to the front. The daughter of Sennachie saluted narrowly and recorded a handy 22.70 on a track that wasn’t conjusive to fast times. Pecorino Monelli held second a nose ahead of kennel-mate Sunset Lightning. Rosie Browne is raced by the Lowry Lowry Syndicate and is trained by Ian Bunny. Her littermates Mrs. Cropley, Another James, Fancy That Fred and Kentish Lass are all early winners too.

“Pecorino Monelli wins maiden final for David Hobby”

“Ian Bunny trains a race-to-race double”

Barragup based trainer Ian Bunny took out both of tonight’s 400m maidens with littermates Fancy That Fred and Another James. Fancy That Fred was heavily backed into a $1.75 favourite and after leaping to the front scored by four lengths in a handy 22.40. Twenty minutes later his brother Another James bounced out to lead before winning by three lengths in a slightly faster 22.38. Both chasers were sired by Sennachie and are out of Hazlehurst and look to have very bright futures given their tender ages of seventeen months. Their full sister Mrs. Cropley has also been very impressive winning her two race starts over 300m in quick times. Later in the evening 50/1 outsider Kingshott caused a boil-over when he took out the Peel Plate Final for Kody Charles.

“Jimmy’s Jet wins by eight lengths again”

Promising sprinter Jimmy’s Jet made it 2 blistering wins from 2 starts in tonight’s Zack Monelli at Stud Provincial Novice. The son of Fernando Bale created a big impression on February 28 when he qualified over 380m at Cannington in 21.31. Last Tuesday he debuted with a sizzling victory in 21.93, recording a time just half a length outside of the track record. Tonight he led throughout again in 21.97, defeating All About Marble and Loki Hook by eight lengths. He is trained by Paul Stuart and turns two in May. Given his tender age clocking a time inside the record is just a matter of time for the freak speedster.

HOUNDS TO FOLLOW :

Race 1 Number 1 ZEZE DAWN : Relished box one and the drop in distance and scored in a solid 17.13.

Race 6 Number 4 HEART EMOJI : Stormed home late and looks ready to win.
