Mullins wins Posh Puppy Derby with Be Real
Ayamzagirl: Another impressive Marathon win at PeterboroughPICTURE: STEVE NASH
BE REAL (7-1) was an easy winner of the £5,000 Bettor.com Peterborough Puppy Derby final at the Fengate Stadium late on Wednesday night.
Dave Mullins' youngster got a smash break and, with trouble in behind, surged clear and was never troubled to beat Glenadda Magic by a shade over four lengths in 25.52sec.
The televised action had kicked off with a 420-metre contest for British Bred runners only where Laura Corrigan's tight railer Bakari (7-1) stayed on well to record a 25.65sec success.
The Seniors had a race to themselves at 8.00 and here David Pruhs' Chicago Prince (7-1) came from off the pace (26.04sec) to land another body blow for punters.
Ricky Holloway's Air Force Solo, an 8-1 chance, showed the pace and heart to overcome a tricky draw in four to take the Sprint (235m) in 14.53sec.
The 420m Standard at 8.35 attracted some very fast hounds including David Pruhs' Sequential (7-1) who rode first bend bunching to kick on from the second turn and record 26.14sec.
A second 420m Standard at 8.50 saw Heather Dimmock's Waspinajar (2-1F) crack out and make all in 25.94sec and become the first winningjolly on the card.
Elaine Parker's Skywalker Louie (3-1) dominated the 605m Stayers race and stopped the clock in a useful 38.34sec.
Mark Wallis's Ayamzagirl (8-11F) simply outclassed her rivals in the 790-metre Marathon at 9.25. Leading off the final bend, she went on to score by almost three lengths in 51.29sec.
