Easy win in Echuca

Deniliquin Pastoral Times - - LOCAL CLASSIES -

Easy Beast seems set for Mel­bourne suc­cess af­ter a dom­i­nant win at Echuca on Mon­day.

The Richard Lam­ing trained three yearold’s three starts in his first prepa­ra­tion in­cluded two mi­nor plac­ings at Caulfield.

Easy Beast set the pace in Mon­day’s Maiden Plate (1000m) and in­creased the mar­gin all the way along the straight.

He de­feated Cath’s Vil­lage by six lengths with Could It Be Magic and Tata Da Goose dead-heat­ing for third. The win im­pressed jockey Jamie Mott.

‘‘His form last prepa­ra­tion was good and he will mea­sure up to a race in town,’’ he said.

Easy Beast de­buted with a Caulfield sec­ond on May 13, beaten a half length by Ty­coon Dancer.

Lord Sun­downer is another Echuca win­ner which should pay to fol­low. The Mick Price trained three year-old rid­den by Jake Noo­nan was not ex­tended to win the Bench­mark 64 (1400m) by 41⁄ lengths. He started $2.20 favourite and posted his sec­ond win in five starts.

Former Syd­ney mare Na­hema ap­pre­ci­ated a class drop to win the Bench­mark 58 (1600m) by 43⁄ lengths.

The five year-old, a last start ninth in a Can­ter­bury Bench­mark 73, was hav­ing her first start for Wagga trainer Tim Don­nelly. Win­ning jockey Re­beka Prest fin­ished the day with three wins, her first tre­ble at a TAB meet­ing.

Re­beka’s other win­ners were Jun­gle Queen and Gens Miss. First starter Jun­gle Queen ($31) was suc­cess­ful in the Three Year-Old Fil­lies’ Maiden (1100m).

Jun­gle Queen trained by Chris Davis was part of a long­shot tri­fecta with Hell Of A Tail ($51) and Keano Town ($101). The Alan Fitzger­ald trained Gens Miss ($6) won the Bench­mark 58 (1000m) from Car­welkin and Get To The Chop­per. Five year-old Gens Miss, a last start win­ner at Corowa, has had only three starts.

Fol­low - Ke­men­tari: Spelled af­ter Rand­wick four lengths win in May at his sec­ond start; en­hanced Caulfield Guineas prospects with Pre­lude third on Sun­day.

Com­ing win­ners: Don’t Give A Damn won Rose­hill Class 2 by 61⁄ lengths at his third start. Lizzie L’amour, a New Zealand Group 1 win­ner over 2000m, can im­prove on Moonee Val­ley 1600m sixth. In­fer­ence hit the line strongly for Caulfield 1800m sixth and suited over more ground.
