Bunbury trainer Sarah Wall has Dontbesillychilli racing with great enthusiasm, and the two-year-old filly impressed when she unleashed a powerful finishing burst to win the 1730m Retravision Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.

Driven for the first time by Dylan Egerton-Green, Dontbesillychilli, fourth favourite at $5.50, was restrained to the rear after starting from barrier seven in the field of eight while Never Forget Adda ($3.90) was setting the pace and the $2.65 favourite Wall Street Girl susceptible after racing three wide early and then in the breeze.

Dontbesillychilli was sixth with 400m to travel before Egerton-Green sent her forward, three wide, and she finished fast to burst to the front in the final 40m and dashed away to beat the tiring Wall Street Girl by a length at a 1.57.7 rate.

Wall had mixed emotions after the race, with her other runner Make Your Mark, a $3.90 chance, failing to complete the course after breaking badly in the mobile score-up.

Dontbesillychilli, a filly by American sire Western Terror, has had ten starts for three wins and three placings for stakes of $37,001.
