A conspicuous last at box rise, she made a long and searching run out wide to get to the lead in the back section.
Going right on with it from that point, she chased keenly to the line to win by two lengths in a handy 23.34. The Rob Ensby trained galloper has now won two of her four starts with the other two runs resulting in placings.
Two top grade events highlighted the card with the sprint Free For All going to Bacardi Breeze. She has been a model of consistency of late, winning five of her last six and she led from the first turn before kicking away to win by a length in a fast 22.97. The 484 metre event went to Golden Earing who has also been in top form. She led from the first bend and ran 27.52 in 4 1/4 length win.
Tallow Beach, who had been placed at her three starts, also made a big run in the middle stages to win the Paul Wasson Electrical maiden in fine style. Well placed behind the leaders, she went past them in a falsh to grab the front, and the race. In the “wash up” she scored by 3/4 length in 23.38.
The Shane Staples trained Norway Miss atoned for recent placings when she took out the Richmond Valley Pet Supplies stake. Having her first run over the 484 metres for some time, she went with the speedy Kennstrelle to the back before taking over. She looked strong in the run to the line winning by 1 1/2 lengths in a handy 27.65.
Barry and Mavis Wilkinson continued their fine trot with the win of Clancy Lad in the opening maiden. He went straight to the front to record a 6 3/4 length victory in 23.47, whilst Phoenix Bomber led all of the way in the Tweed to Casino final. He ran 23.32 for Trevor Wilson.
Big Bad Shiraz led from the catching pen to win the distance race in a handy 35.73 for Pat Lavis and John Watts, while Where’s Shazlyn was too strong in the 484 metre maiden, saluting by 3 1/2 lengths for trainer Shane Robinson.
In the other races, Barrels’ Boy won a mixing affair in 23.47 for Danial Armfield; Arissa showed good pace to clock 27.58 for Dean Turley, and Quite Mild bolted in the final race running 22.93 for Ballina trainer Don Watts.
We will race again next Friday with another 12 race TAB card.
