Upper Swan trainer Michael Munro produced veteran pacer Saleahs Comand in fine fettle for a first-up victory in the 2130m Retravision Pace at Gloucester Park on Friday night.
Saleahs Comand, making his first appearance for five months and favourite at $2.70, was rated perfectly in front by Mark Reed, and he fought on tenaciously to beat the $2.75 second fancy Robbie Easton by a head at a 1.59 rate.
The WA-bred eight-year-old, a noted frontrunner, was having his 104TH start and now has earned $144,378 from 15 wins, 17 seconds and seven thirds.
Five-year-old Robbie Easton extended his losing sequence to 16 after racing without cover throughout and fighting on manfully. That was his fourth start after a spell and should pay to follow.
Disco Under Fire, an $8 chance from barrier seven, caught the eye when he finished strongly from eighth at the bell to be third.
