Williams Within Sights Of Maiden Bunbury Trainer’s Premiership

27
Apr

Grant Williams has all but wrapped up the Bunbury Turf Club’s Leading Trainer premiership following the breakthrough win of Star Of Husson on Monday.

With just the May 1 meeting remaining before the 2013-14 season draws to a close, Williams holds a decisive four point advantage over Simon Foster.

Foster, keen to defend his title from last season, kept his faint hopes alive when Angel Wing flew home late to score in a tight three-way contest.

Barring a mishap it’s an almost unassailable lead for Williams with only one point allocated for each win.

The battle for third place is still very much up for grabs with co-trainers, Bruce and Gary Watkins and Peter and Matt Giadresco tied on six points.

Watkins and Hitchcock went agonisingly close to breaking the deadlock when I’m A Bluebagger and Bayella were edged out in close finishes.
