Metro Wrap: It’s a Bird. It’s a Plane. No…It’s A Blast

Early in the program at The Meadows on Wednesday (June 24) we saw a potential star of the game born with Champion Exhibit, who romped away to a sensational debut win in 30.18, with an impressive 12.15 run home for the Fabregas youngster trained by Darren Murray (Replay).
Panda Bale set the time honours for the graded chasers with a smart 29.99 win from box seven (Replay).

The full stake metro meeting from Sandown Park on Thursday (June 25) once again produced some superb runs throughout the night including the impressive training performance of Wayne Vassallo who quinella’d the novice 595m final with It’s A Blast leading all of the way defeating It’s A Plane by just over two lengths in a speedy 34.12 (Replay).Dyna Yemen produced a career best run when he destroyed a smart field in the mixed four and five winning by nine lengths in a flying 29.18 (Replay). He reeled off a 10.46 run home time which signified he should go very well up to 600m in the future.

Weston East continued his good run of form with a powerful come from behind win in the free for all running a slick 29.43 (Replay).

Saturday night’s meeting at The Meadows (June 27) seemed to be the most exciting for the week of metro greyhound racing with a staggering five feature finals, all keenly contested.
The winners of the finals were as follows: Shepparton to City sprint final was won by Percy’s Lad, who stuck his head out to score a narrow win over the inform Jason Formosa runner Le Luca in 30.36 (Replay).The stayers edition was won by the super strong Calder Cannon who has developed into a hot city class stayer very quickly and his last to first win on Saturday was simply outstanding (Replay).The Warrnambool to City sprint final was controlled by the Robert Britton prepared Sweet Barbados who had the initial speed to lead and dominate from the get-go in 30.09 (Replay) whilst the stayers version went to Tribal Faith, who was able to wear down Sir Bekim in 43.37 (Replay).
Secret Spell continued her terrific run of form to win the White Ribbon Diamond special event in 30.06. The most impressive part about her win was the fact she jumped so perfectly once again (Replay).

The handy sprinter Get Up Dinozzo handled the outside alley well to come away a five length winner in the grade five final running 30.22. The Bradley Burns chaser appears to have a stack of ability and I wouldn’t be surprised to see him win some handy races in the months ahead.

The most impressive of the winners at Sandown on Sunday (June 28) in my opinion were both Evers Bale and Call Me Gee who both well in 29.46 and 29.66 respectively. Evers Bale has been well trained of late by Deb Coleman as she regained the greyhounds confidence with some provincial tier three wins before returning to the big smoke for what was a super win on Sunday.
