TRAINER Gary Fahey will be chasing his fifth Sky Racing Centre feature this year when champion sprinter Just Browsing lines up from box eight in the Steve King Ladies Bracelet Final (515m) on Monday night at Launceston.

 Just Browsing, a winner of eight races from 9 starts over 515 metres, was a well backed favourite from box eight in the first heat of the Ladies Bracelet last Monday. The daughter of My Bro Fabio and Dennes Point qualified for the final with an outstanding victory running 29.96.

The black chaser was away well from the wide draw but got plenty of room to muster pace and was able to slip around the field and settle third through the first turn.

Going down the back Just Browsing let loose with her trade mark speed and raced a length clear. Once out in front coming off the back there was only one danger, Miss Hanigan, which stuck on the leader as the turned for home.

Entering the home straight Just Browsing kicked again and was able to hold off her rivals to win by two lengths from Take Guard with Miss Hanigan holding on gamely for third.

Just Browsing took her record to 17 starts for 11 wins and 2 placings for $41,720 in stakes.

“She is certainly a special bitch and it takes a lot to win from such a bad draw,” said Gary Fahey.

“I have never had a chaser who has taken to a track like this but Just Browsing has such a big affinity with Launceston, what she has done early on in her career put’s her I’d say as one of the best pups that Dennes Point has produced in all litters.

Owned and bred in partnership with Gary’s brother Greg Fahey, their home-bred superstar resumed from a month spell following all-conquering performance in taking out the Division 1 Final of the J.G Nelson Cup back in late July.

She is already a prolific winner of the Breeders Classic, Illingworth Classic and Tasmanian Oaks.

“I think her track sense has come along way, you go back to when she had the fall in a semi-final of the Maiden Thousand at Hobart, she tried to cross from a wide draw and but now that has taught her to negotiate from outside and she timed it well,” Fahey offered.

“She is really well – we can’t be any prouder and she hasn’t missed a place in her last 9 starts.

Just Browsing will me a solid field for Monday’s final including the likes of rival heat winner Fasika for Penguin trainer Butch Deverell, which came off a wide draw in box seven to run out a 3 ½ length winner over Scared Shadow and Gran Amor in 30.34.

The Fahey brothers will look to have strength in numbers as Just Browsing’s litter sisters Sacred Shadow and Gentle Flash have also qualified for the all-female final respectively.

Gentle Flash, prepared by Pauline and Alan Green, has won five races from 14 starts for the Granton-based kennel and qualified for the final running fourth to Fasika off box four.

“Dennes Point’s pups have made a habit of making a few finals together and the last time we had three in the final was the Devonport Cup in 2015 with Breaker’s Tip, Bruny Venture and Rip And Tear out of the Mogambo litter,” said Gary.

“Just Browsing is far better drawn on the rail then out wide so getting box eight once again will make it hard and Sacred Shadow has box six and Gentle Flash has box four, so they will need luck from those draws but it all comes down to the first corner.

“I am hopeful that Just Browsing can begin well and push up with luck in transit, we’ve kept her lightly raced and knowing her recovery habits she always pulls up sound and we just hope that all three come through the race safely.

Ladies Bracelet Box Draw: Miss Hanigan 1, Gran Amor 2, Fasika 3, Gentle Flash 4, Mindful Mystery 5, Sacred Shadow 6, Take Guard 7, Just Browsing 8 / Reserves: Posh Amber & Nitro Grace.
