Metro Wrap: Rock Stardom

Four metropolitan meetings took place throughout the past week and I have looked for the outstanding wins, the best runs – win lose or draw – and, of course, the feature wins from another exciting week of greyhound racing.

Sulzanti cruised home to an effortless win from the suitable outside alley in the fourth race on the card at The Meadows on Wednesday. Trained by Brooke Ennis, there’s no doubt this boom young pup has a massive career ahead, but based on his win on Wednesday in 29.94 (Replay) and his run on Sunday at Sandown Park, he seems to need a little room in the early section to gain momentum. I believe he will have an extremely good career with a stack of wins over the 600m, in which there will be a little less early pace.

At the same meeting Moreira produced a very similar run winning in the slightly quicker time of 29.89 (Replay). He also racked up another smart win on Saturday night but I think he fits into the same category as Sulzanti as they both lack blistering early speed.

Marley Bale fits the outstanding category perfectly after he sped away to a superb 29.45 win in the maiden final at Sandown Park on Thursday night (Replay). After drawing wide and being stuck deep throughout on debut last Sunday, he quickly bounced back to kick start what could be an phenomenal racing career.

Absolute Power stepped up to the 595m with a dominant 34.23 for Jason Thompson (Replay).

The classy grade five final was conducted in the sixth race of the night in which Shared Equity proved too good with the aid of the inside. Using the red alley to full advantage, this speedy sprinter controlled the race from the fast finishing potental stayer in Creative Karisma and the unlucky Blazin’ Bomber, who flew late for third. The Angela Langton prepared Shared Equity reeled off a 29.44 performance with an easy three length victory (Replay).

Angie Rocks (pictured) proved she is top class coming from well off the tempo to down Kayda Shae by two and a half lengths in 29.40. She looks all set to step back up to the 600m plus in which I expect her to have a huge career (Replay).

Full On Bling raced as a super short favourite, but justified the quote in his impressive 34.18 win in the tenth event (Replay).

Beks was able to kick punters off to a sensational start as he flew home to record another terrific staying win in 42.44. Noted as a super strong chaser, the son of Bekim Bale gained an ideal run in the early part and he was then able to produce his powerful finish to win running away from the gallant Seeking Justice (Replay).
Sisco Wake railed brilliantly to salute in the 600m grade five final over Esparza, who looks destined for a handy staying career (Replay).

Dyna Double One caught the eye in the small, but classy free for all. As expected, the long odds on favourite jumped to the lead and dominated from that point on with a flying 29.59 win (Replay).

The racing was rounded out on Saturday night with Dalgetty, who announced himself as a hot sprinter with a super slick 29.81 win (Replay).

Despite the awkward draw, the Jason Thompson prepared youngster flew off the back in 17.67 on his way to his big win in the last.

Shirdon Connorae caught my eye as one of the most encouraging and gutsy wins of the week. After being challenged numerous times he continued to kick, eventually pulling away to a smart 29.66 victory (Replay).

That wraps up another wrap!

Watch: Dyna Double One (1) beats a small but quality field at The Meadows on Saturday night.
