    Boulia’s own camel Uncle Bob had caused an upset by defeating Hook M Upin the heats of the 400m race on Saturday although with the top three qualifying for the final Don Anesbury may havebeen easing up his mount for the big one.

    If that was the strategy it worked asHook M Up was the victor in the major event the 1500m Desert Sands Boulia Cup.

    To a backdrop of misty rain and chilly air the seven-year-old camel ran the event in just under two and a half minutes, streaking clear of the field.

    Hook M Up won by three lengths fromUncle Bob, which found the extra distance just too tough to handle.

    Third was Jackie, fourth wasChief and fifth wasLazy Girl.

    It was Hook M Up’s second successive Boulia Cup winafter the 2015 race was the first time Anesbury ran him over that distance.

    With four local trainers involved, the local camel race was keenly contested.

    In the end it was Spike who delivered the goods just holding off Mario.

    Sneaky was a long way back in third andCheese and Whiskas finished fourth.

    Arguably another local camel Marley was the story of the weekend.

    After the previously unheralded beast wonits 400m heat on Saturday in a 20-year record time of 33.40 seconds, it went around the course even faster in the 400m finalon Sunday in a time of just under 33 seconds, smashing its own one-day-old record.

    Even Hook M Up couldn’t live with it and was forced to run second.

    Biscuit finished third withPete back in fourth.

    Fifth wasUncle Bob.

    The camel festival moves on to Winton this weekend for the final leg.
