Another Bullet beats Will In Charge and She's A Maneater

Apprentices accounted for eight of the 10 races on Saturday's opening day of the Easter carnival, including 27-1 outsider, ANOTHER BULLET, who ran past a tiring CHACE THE GREAT to win the grade one Lady Geeta Trophy at six furlongs.

ANOTHER BULLET, carrying 109lb with apprentice Reyan Lewis, improved to go third entering the straight, chasing 4-5 favourite, WILL IN CHARGE, and speedy CHACE THE GREAT, who tried to make all with 112lb.

Constantly harassed by WILL IN CHARGE, Trevor Simpson asked CHACE THE GREAT to quicken away but weakened close home, collared by ANOTHER BULLET, who closed fast to win by three-quarter length in 1:11.3.

SHE'S A MANEATER, the even-money second favourite, laboured in the six-horse field, burdened by topweight 126lb.

Apprentice Christopher Mamdeen extended his lead ahead of six-time former champion jockey, Omar Walker, moving five clear, to 30 winners, with a two-timer, opening the programme with 1-2 favourite, SUPERBOLT, before landing the third with CHIEF OF STATE at odds of 2-5.

Apprentices Raddesh Roman and Kiaman McGregor also rode two winners apiece. Roman won aboard BURLIN, a 5-1 shot, in the second event, and 15-1 outsider, ENEDINA, in the ninth.

McGregor won aboard 22-1 come-from-behind shocker, MAKHI, in the sixth and made all with 5-2 chance, BLACK RIVER, in the eighth.

Trainer Errol Waugh saddled two winners, opening the card with SUPERBOLT, followed by GOLDEN DESTINY, Shavon Townsend up, in the seventh at five-furlong straight.

The Easter carnival continues on Monday with 10 races scheduled.
