Gralin has been racing well over the shorter journeys of late and after a luckless effort at Wentworth Park over this distance he is ready to show improvement. Last time out he was a tad slow to begin and he had to work hard mid race and he was then found wanting up the home straight. Tonight he should be able to land on the bunny and he should set up a nice lead mid race, he is going to get a little tired in the run home but he should have enough left in the tank. Miston Belle was a brilliant 29.87 Gosford winner four runs back and she is drawn to feature, she can be a little hit or miss early but from the red she should anticipate the start quite well. Lorella Fire is showing promise and she didn’t have much luck here last week, the draw doesn’t help tonight but she can ping the lids and she shouldn’t be too far away.

Top Four: 2 – 1 – 4 – 3

Big Tee Sal is a classy type and he is surprisingly well drawn in the middle. With the fast beginning and keen railing Stratavon Pat drawn underneath he should get a nice cart across as they head into the first turn. Four starts ago he pinged the lids and scored an all the way 30.14 Wentworth Park win and a similar effort tonight would see him score with ease. Stratavon Pat should lead them up and she has a top record here, she has been placed in five of her past six starts and she should give a great sight again. Hayden Hair can be a bit of nonny at times but he has a heap of ability and he is drawn to make an impact. He has been racing in much stronger company of late and it’s hard to see him missing a place from the red draw. Masii could be the value in the event, he can show early speed in his races and he could run a cheeky race at big odds.

Top Four: 5 – 4 – 1 – 7

Suggested Bets:

Win bet on Big Tee Sal

2014 Group One Topgun Preview http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/2014-group-one-topgun-preview/57316 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/group-listed-greyhound-racing/2014-group-one-topgun-preview/57316#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 02:45:57 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=57316 All eyes will be on The Meadows tomorrow night for the 22nd running of the Group One Topgun, which will see eight of the country’s best greyhounds chasing top honours and the $150,000 winner’s cheque.

The Wheeler family have won the last three Topgun’s and will be looking to make it four in a row with Adelaide Cup winner Allen Deed, who’s drawn perfectly in box seven. Trained by Andrea Dailly, the son of Jarvis Bale and Greta Bale isn’t blessed with early toe but has a massive motor and will to win. He has been clocking slick times in his recent starts against top company and is currently the $2.80 favourite with Sportingbet to land the cash.

Darren McDonald has two runners in the final, with Keybow in box two and Awesome Project in box six.

Keybow is a good beginner and has an exceptional record from the two alley, but hasn’t been seen on the track for a while and this is not an easy assignment. However, there is no doubt that McDonald wouldn’t race him unless he was 100% fit. He should be fresh and ready to go.

Awesome Project will face a tough task from box six being only a moderate beginner. He is a very fast animal but will need plenty of luck from the green.

Jeff Britton also has two runners in the final with Group One winner’s Oakvale Destiny and Mepunga Hayley.

Oakvale Destiny is another slow beginner but she is drawn well in the three and should be able to find the fence early on. With plenty of field sense she could certainly run into the money if she can position herself well in the early stages.

Following the scratching of Flash Reality, Mepunga Hayley gains a start in the field and, unless there are further scratchings, she will jump from box four. That isn’t a bad alley for her as she has a slow beginner on her inside and will hold a good line to the first turn. She is hit and miss at the start but she really pings the lids when she gets her timing right.

Tassie has it’s first Topgun representative with Buckle Up Wes drawn box five. He has a perfect two from two at The Meadows including a brilliant win in this year’s Group One Australian Cup. He has good pace once he hits the ground and will make his presence felt if he is left alone in the first few strides after box rise.

NSW rounds off the field with Chica Destacada drawn along the rail and Zipping Willow drawn in the pink.

Little Chica is a pocket rocket and can explode from the traps, she will relish the draw. She has been a little flat since winning the National Sprint at Cannington but has had a freshen up since then and will just need to step well to be in with a winning chance.

Zipping Willow is probably the state’s best bitch. She has a good record from out wide but this is tough company and she will really need to burn in the early stages to be close to the lead around the first turn. It will be a big challenge but she is more than capable on her night.

ARG Comments: “More than handy chaser who demolished the Canberra track record recently in a heat of the Group Three Canberra Cup before returning the following week for a dominant win in the final. Hit and miss at the start but could figure in the finish if he gets a start.”

An intriguing race, I think the inside pair hold the key. Both are terrific beginners on their night and if either bounce on the bunny they can set up a big enough break to snare the prize.

I will go with Keybow for the simple reason that he has plenty of experience around the track. I think Buckle Up Wes will be nice and fresh and can win if he gets a clear run. Allen Deed is well boxed but can’t give this field too much of a start.

Tips:

Finn Steals The Show At Maitland http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/finn-steals-the-show-at-maitland/57314 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/new-south-wales-greyhound-racing/finn-steals-the-show-at-maitland/57314#comments Fri, 24 Oct 2014 02:20:32 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=57314 It was well and truly ladies day at Maitland yesterday afternoon, with astute female trainer Melinda Finn dominating the Brodie Wells Electrical Future Stars heats, notching up three winners and a track record in the process. No greyhound in the history of racing at Maitland had broken the 22-second barrier, until yesterday.

Winsome Jacko went into heat three well supported by punters at $1.80 and despite a slow exit from box eight, showed a brilliant turn of acceleration at the top of the turn to streak away by six and a quarter lengths in an astounding time of 21.98. The previous record of 22.11 had been held by Barry Evans’ Little Ed since March of 2012, who fittingly took out the GBOTA Sprint Series Final and was trackside to witness his record fall. Jason Mackay’s talented chaser Zipping Midge battled on gamely, however this truly gifted greyhound is undoubtedly racing’s newest sensation.

“He didn’t begin that well, but I was really glad he had box eight and got plenty of room to move,” said delighted trainer Melinda Finn.

“I expected him to go well because he’s been trialling very fast there, but probably didn’t expect him to break 22 seconds.”

The son of El Grand Senor and Ramblin’ Ruby will be joined by litter mates Winsome Mission and Winsome Blue, who were outstanding in their respective heats, clocking times of 22.20 and 22.51. Winsome Mission jumped from box six and emulated his brother’s turn of speed to round up the early leaders, clocking a flying run home of 6.55. Winsome Blue stepped out in the final heat from box one and took full advantage of an inside draw. Railing underneath his rivals, the 35kg heavyweight took the lead half way around the turn, saluting by three quarters of a length at the finish.

“The whole litter is very fast. Winsome Mission broke in the best and I was really happy with how he came out. When you breed them, break them in and train them, it gives you a real kick when they perform like this.”

Finn could be forgiven for planning well and truly ahead of next week’s final, with the Cranebrook trainer illustrating her desire to nurture her talented youngsters through the grades.

“They’re only 18 months old and I don’t want to rush them yet. I’ll just work them through the grades at different tracks, because there’s plenty of time for the big races.”

Londonderry trainer Christine Proctor also had a memorable afternoon at the Hunter Valley circuit, notching up two heat winners with litter brothers Lord Gee and Master Gee. Lord Gee stepped out in the opening heat from box three and after a moderate getaway, railed underneath the leaders to salute by one and three quarter lengths in 22.45. Master Gee started from box eight in heat six at skinny odds of $1.60, and rewarded punters enthusiasm, virtually leading all the way in a flying run of 22.38. The 34kg heavyweight by El Grand Senor out of Oh Em Gee is a definite star on the rise and will be well supported once again in next week’s final.

Lord Licrick for owner-trainer Robert Green came into this series after a very impressive 22.69 performance trial at Richmond and didn’t disappoint from box seven, clocking a smart time of 22.51. The son of Oak’s Road and Myron’s Angel saluted by three and a quarter lengths at the finish, with a solid run home time of 6.68.

The biggest upset of the day came in heat seven, when $17.30 outsider Airbourne Miss began well from box five and brushed off his rivals at the top of the turn, scoring by three and a quarter lengths in a smart time of 22.69. Owned and trained locally by Allan Mcgowan, this talented son of Knocka Norris and Dis Low Kate clocked a sizzling run home time of 6.59 and thoroughly deserves his place in next week’s final.

The box draw for next Thursday afternoon’s $8,000 to the winner final will be released on Monday.

Tom Tzouvelis (Trainer): “Hopefully she can cross Mal Rose Hi and find the fence. She is very strong and broke the 35-seconds at her first go over 600 metres at Albion Park. She has a small injury after that and is still on the way back. She has been racing well and only need that bit of luck to find the fence, then she may get the run.”

The charge to the first turn is going to be all important.

Birkdale Beauty (8) will be looking to replicate her slick first section from last week. If she can she may take some catching.

Bill’s Fantasy (2) has the draw and the pace to make this race his own and looks the obvious punter’s elect.

Yogi Blue (7) has plenty of class and should be improved from last week.

Outa Tempo (5) and Fusaichi Khan (6) are very consistent and their chances hinge on jumping ok and landing in the first couple early.

Walk With Faith (4) and Love Kills (1) both have powerful finishes and could have the last crack at the leaders.

Hard Luck is an exciting Prospect and he should be much better for the run here last week. He tends to miss away in his races but he is armed with a dazzling turn of foot, so if he doesn’t get too crowded early he should be looking for the lead as they head for the back straight. Tark’s Black Rose is well drawn out wide and she caught the eye when scoring here over 431m in 25.10 recently and she should have no trouble with the extra journey. Fabulous Storm blew away his rivals with a brilliant 30.65 win here last time out and with luck early he should feature again.

Hopping Houdini recorded blistering sectionals when winning here in 30.61 two runs back and a similar effort would see him score again. There is little speed around him so he should be afforded all the favours in the initial stages. Cardwell beat Hopping Houdini here last week and she should give a great sight again, I think whoever leads out of the two will win but I think Hopping Houdini has a little more natural dash. Titan Ash is a strong type and she will be steaming home late, she may get too far back early to win but she is a great dog to anchor for third and fourth in your exotic bets.

Celtic Match is a reliable beginner and she tends to do her best racing here. Four starts ago she showed good early speed when posting a slick 30.65 win here and if she can produce similar sectionals tonight she should get the cash. Dee Gee Jayee has the good draw and he powered to the line in his strong 30.79 win here last time, from the red he should get all the breaks. Rupert returned to form here last week but that was from the red draw and from the middle pin tonight he will need some luck, he is obviously a chance but he will need a few things to go his way. Habana Flex rounds out the chances, she is better suited to a shorter trip but she could give a bold sight in the lead.

Jackson’s Day was solidly placed here last week when having his first look at the track and he should be much better for that run. He is armed with a dazzling turn of foot and he should get every chance to lead throughout. Cosmic Boss is much better than his recent form reads and if he can step cleanly he might have enough early toe to hold them out. Give Me Class turned in a strong performance to win here last time in 30.66 and with some luck at the first turn she should be in the mix again. Bradley Benz could be the value, he has been racing against strong company of late and he may appreciate the drop in class.

Tearaway Size should get a nice cart across from Tiny Turner in the early stages and she should prove too strong in the run home. She has won seven of ten here and her 30.21 PB means that she has panels on her opposition. Kidatee Croc has the good draw and he caught the eye when recording two sub 30 second wins at Albion Park in September. Skuzi has a great record here and he is showing promise, this is his toughest test but he should be up to it. Nala’s Heart has enough speed to lead a race like this and she may be worth a bet if she goes around at silly odds.

Dream river can be a little hard to follow but when he is switched on he is a super talent. Four starts ago he showed blistering early speed before posting a very fast 29.86 Albion Park win, from the red he should find the early lead and he will prove too slick for these. Farmer’s Gold has a heap of talent but poor box manners have cost him throughout his career, if he can find the rail soon after the start he should run a big race. Fred Sealey could be the value, he has a tremendous record here and his recent form is much better than it reads. Grim Creeper has been disappointing of late but with some luck early he may be able to regain some confidence.

Rain Stream was dragged down at a crucial stage here last week and that probably cost her victory, tonight she meets a similar field and with a little more luck she should taste success. Regal Lauryn is making her staying debut and the way she hits the line over the 500m journey indicates that this trip will definitely suit. She likes to scout wide in her races so she should get every chance from out there. Golfing Amy was a strong 37.23 winner here last week and she is an obvious chance again, the only concern with her is that she may struggle to cross from the wide draw.

Chant is a faultless beginner and he should take a power of beating based on his sizzling 29.84 Albion Park win two runs back, he is yet to win here in two tries but he is in good form and he looks well placed here. Cyndie’s Special should follow Chant across in the early stages and she should match motors with him for most of the journey, her last 50m isn’t great but she should hang on for the quinella spot. Not Held has the good draw and he is never far away in this company, he has won six of 14 here and he posted his impressive 30.40 PB here from this draw. Exhibitionist is a class act when on song but he appears to be a little down on confidence at present.

Hope’s Fantasy led for a long way here last week and with a clean getaway tonight she should be able to go one better. This is one of the easiest races she has contested for a while and she should get all the breaks early. Not The One has a great record here and he has won three of his past five, the draw is against him tonight but he does like to scout wide in his races. Line Up Buoys can be hard to follow but he is a super talent when he lands on the bunny. Spring Colorado turned in a big effort when placed here last week and he should be respected again.

Cosmic Pauly got very lost on the first bend here last week and I would expect him to show great improvement tonight. He has scored some sizzling provincial wins in his career to date and his middle sectionals are ridiculous. Grin and Win was far from disgraced when placed here last week and he should be in the mix again, he has won five races here and has been placed on another five occasions from 12 tries. Don’t Josh Me has a heap of talent but he doesn’t always show it, obviously if he is switched on he becomes a winning prospect. Made That Way should settle in the top two early and he could give a nice sight at odds.

Come On Fantasy meets some highly promising speedsters tonight but if she reproduces the effort which saw her win at The Meadows in 30.08 she will be more than competitive. On that occasion she recorded a very zippy 5.06 to the first marker and she has shown to begin a lot better when drawn out wide. With slow beginners drawn on either side she should get a fairly clear passage early and if she finds the bunny she will prove very hard to gun down.

Weston East set the track alight here last Sunday when posting a 29.36 win and he appears to be getting better with every run. The only concern with him is that he had missed the kick in his two previous starts and he can’t afford to make any mistakes tonight. No Ransom has a good record here and he hit the line strongly when placed behind the in form Jayney Bale here last week. The box draw hasn’t done him any favours but he is likely to settle back in the field anyway, so as long he gets a few gaps mid race he should be right in the mix. Esparza will be well supported and she is highly promising, however she is drawn poorly out wide and she is likely to find bother early.

8BIG KAT [4]4632142.13(3)C Schlensog (Anakie)

I know I sound like a broken record but going with Dyna Perseus again tonight. This week he is drawn much closer to the inside and with the empty draw underneath he should get a fairly clear passage into the first bend. Four starts ago he posted a sizzling 42.08 win here and he is a super talent when he lands on the bunny. There is a little more depth in this week’s event so you might be able to land $3 or a little better.

Shall She Rock is very consistent and she has won two of her past four at The Meadows in fine style and in addition to that she has a record of two wins from five tries here. She is likely to settle mid field but she is very strong in the run to the line and she only needs an ounce of luck in running to feature. Big Kat returned to the winners list with a strong 39.42 Warragul win last week and she is well placed in the pink draw, she rises in class a little tonight but she runs out the journey well and she must be included in your exotic bets. Starc has been a little disappointing since scoring here in 42.10 in September, however he does have enough early speed to lead and that may help him regain some confidence.

Glock has tasted success for a little while now but from the red tonight he should get every chance to taste success. He normally gets back in his races, however he does possess a lot of pace once he hits the ground, so with a clean getaway tonight there is every chance he could hold them out at the first bend. He is a super talent when he gets out into open space and I think he is just about a moral to score tonight.

Sisco Rage is back to his brilliant best and he looked super impressive when scoring here last week in 34.36, after beginning slowly he showed a tremendous turn of foot and he put them to the sword as they headed off the back straight. From the middle pin he will need a few things to go his way but his confidence is up and I expect him to turn in a big performance. Pure Mayhem was never headed in his 34.48 heat win and if he finds the bunny early he should give a great sight again, I’m convinced that he runs a strong 595m but if they shuffle up behind him he may just steal the prize. Nureyev is a great dog to plonk for third and fourth in your exotics, he will get back early but he hits the line hard and he is never far away.

The excitement machine Azza Azza Azza is finally making his Metropolitan debut and I think he will be able to see out the extra distance. He is explosive early and if he handles the first turn he should give the sectional records a solid nudge. He is obviously going to get a little tired in the run home but I think he should have built up a big enough gap mid race to hold on.

Dyna Villa is well placed in the pink draw and he is unbeaten in four tries here. If he steps cleanly he should be able to put some pressure on the favourite mid race and in the closing stages, he will need some luck early but with a clean getaway his natural speed will allow him to cross. Airbound is a great place prospect in this event, he is going to get a long way back early but this race features a number of front runners and he should be able to pick them off late in the race. Duchess Bale has the good draw but my concern with her is that she is an on the bunny dog and I can’t see her holding them out tonight.

Tough race but I think the in form Blurred Lines can get the job done. He has been showing blistering early speed in his races of late and with a clean getaway I can’t see anything in this field holding him out in the run to the first turn. Three starts ago he beat Allen Deed in a heat of the Adelaide Cup and I can see him getting down to around the 29.30 mark if he finds the bunny in the early stages.

Dyna Alchemist scored a commanding 25.65 Geelong win recently and he didn’t have much luck in the Cup final a week later. He scored a brilliant 29.44 win here in his only try and he has a ridiculous turn of foot soon after box rise. Nockabout Aussie is so hard to follow but he is never far away over this trip and he will be charging home at the business end of proceedings, if the gaps open at the right time he is more than capable of scoring. Ollie Bale rounds out the chances, he is a little down on confidence but he has the red tonight and that should allow him to settle a little closer to the speed.

Dyna Yemen is an explosive youngster and his effort when placed in a heat of the Geelong Cup was enormous. In that event he bombed the start but picked himself up and powered to the line before going down narrowly to the classy Hallelujah Henry. Tonight he should be able to find the rail soon after the start and he should make a strong move mid race. This is his toughest test to date but I think this bloke can be a major player during the carnival.

Ritza Hattie has returned to racing in great fashion and she smashed a handy line-up at Wentworth Park last time in 29.80. She has won two of four here with a sizzling 29.37 PB, if she reproduces that type of run she will take a power of beating. Top Secret is another who is in great form and I would expect him to lead for a long way, over this journey his last 40m is always a struggle but he will set a cracking pace and he should have a good break mid race. Crusade Marjen is the interesting runner, he is blessed with a heap of talent but his box manners have really let him down in recent weeks.

Size Does Matter is a freak talent and he just about looks a moral from the rails alley. He has won seven of eight from this pin and his effort when placed here last week was massive. After missing the kick, all he wanted to do was find the rail and once he found it that’s when he was at his best. There isn’t much speed on his outer so as long as he comes out on terms he should have enough natural speed to hold them out.

Peloton Bale was far from disgraced when placed behind My Bro Fabio here last week and he should be running on strongly again. The box draw isn’t great but it shouldn’t matter too much as he generally settles back in the field. Iva Vision is a gun Queenslander and he recently captured the Group Two SA Derby, if he handles the track at his first look he should make the favourite work a little for victory. Access is the value in the event, he has the speed to lead and he has won here previously in a slick 29.43. With a clean getaway he could give a nice sight at odds.

Lamia Bale turned in a career best performance when placed behind Banjo Boy here recently and from the red draw tonight she should get every chance to lead throughout. In her recent placing here she went sub 29.50 and I think on the bunny tonight she should be capable of going a little faster. If you can snag around $2.60 or better, that is great value.

Buckle Up Mason is super consistent and he is still racing very well. He is yet to win from the pink draw but there isn’t much speed underneath him tonight so he should get a fairly clear passage initially. Placid Planet is the interesting runner, he has scored some breathtaking wins at Albion Park in his brief career to date, however he runs very wide in his races so I think he may need a run or two at this venue. Cornelius Fudge could be good value the place, he gets a long way back initially but he works his way through a field nicely and he tends to do his best racing here.

Marcus Joe is a track specialist and he is drawn to make every post a winner. Back in August he pinged the lids and recorded brilliant sectionals throughout when winning here in 29.46 and a similar effort tonight would see him score with ease. There is a bit of speed drawn on his outside but he has a great turn of foot and he should be able to hold them out.

Crackerjack Dak is unbeaten in four starts here and if he steps cleanly he should make a big impact. He does his best racing when on the bunny but if he lands on the back of Marcus Joe he can still give a great sight. Dyna Ostrander could be the value in the event, he is armed with a ridiculous turn of foot and with a clear passage early he should find himself in a prominent position as they head through the first turn. Grand Legacy is absolutely flying on the provincial circuit and although this is a big rise in class he is more than capable of sneaking into the placings. He has raced well against similar opposition at The Meadows earlier in the year and he must be included in your exotics.

Du Plessis returned to form recently with a strong and fast 30.84 Ballarat win and he is ideally placed in the pink draw. This is his first try at this journey but his littermates have been flying over this distance range of late, I expect that he will find the early lead and he should build up a nice lead mid race. Obviously the last 50m is going to be a worry but at the odds I’m willing to take the chance.

Shot To Bits is going to start a short priced favourite but his two most recent efforts have been quite poor. From the red he may be able to settle in a more prominent position early and he may be able to gain some confidence if he settles closer to the lead. Untraceable led for a long way at The Meadows last week over 725m and he should be in the mix for a long way again, this is a much weaker lineup than the field he met at The Meadows and he should play a prominent role. Leprechaun Macey is resuming from nearly a year off and she is in good hands, watch for any significant betting moves.

Agent Jack is a freak talent and he recently set the track alight with a dazzling 29.27 win here over the 515m journey. He is normally a good beginner and with the lack of speed drawn underneath him he should be able to find the early lead. With a 34.18 PB over this trip it is very hard to see him being run down if he happens to land on the bunny.

Sonic Pirate is a faultless beginner and he has turned in some excellent performances over this journey of late, he tends to get a little tired in the run home but if they shuffle up underneath him early he may just build up a race winning lead. Echelonic Action is the run on dog in the event, he can be very hit or miss early but he will hit the line hard and he must be included in your exotic bets. Smart Maxwell just keeps on winning at present and he is a major player if he can get away cleanly. The draw doesn’t help but he is in career best form and he may be worth a bet if he goes around at silly odds.

Race 12 – 515M Grade 5 – 10.58pm

Papa Hook has been racing in tremendous fashion at Warragul of late and he deserves a crack in town. He is normally a fair beginner but he musters pace at a ridiculous rate. With a wide runner drawn on his outer he should get plenty of room early and he should lead them as they head into the first turn.

Waymore Blues is a gun and he should appreciate the drop in class. He can be very hit or miss early but he is explosive when he finds the bunny. Five starts ago he scored a sizzling 23.82 Bendigo win and he also caught the eye when placed here last week. Polly Bale is well drawn out wide and she is showing plenty of promise. She would need to ping and lead to win but she did record two top placings here of late from this draw, so she must be respected. Strange Wish has a great record here and he must be included in your exotic bets, he struggles to win these days but he is never far away.

Top Four: 4 – 7 – 8 – 2

Graeme Bate Penalty Increased On Appeal From GRV http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/stewards-reports/graeme-bate-penalty-increased-on-appeal-from-grv/57270 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/australian-greyhound-racing/stewards-reports/graeme-bate-penalty-increased-on-appeal-from-grv/57270#comments Thu, 23 Oct 2014 03:38:11 +0000 http://www.australianracinggreyhound.com/?p=57270 Greyhound Racing Victoria (GRV) has, for the first time, appealed a decision of the independent Racing Appeals and Disciplinary Board (RADB) for being too lenient.

The decision of the GRV Stewards to appeal the decision was made on Friday 13 June and was taken in light of the strict approach of the current administration in relation to the use of prohibited substances.

GRV will continue to test for these substances and penalise any person that breaks the rules.

Yesterday, VCAT increased the penalty in the case of Graeme Bate by one (1) year, with the total disqualification period now three (3) years.

Graeme Bate pleaded guilty to five serious offences under the Greyhounds Australasia Rules (GAR) before the RADB on Tuesday 10 June this year. The charges included; administering a prohibited substance to a greyhound under his care, administering a prohibited substance to greyhounds trained by another person, procuring tablets for the purpose of administering to greyhounds and making a false and misleading statement.

GRV Chairman Peter Caillard said this sends a strong message to those who try to gain an unfair advantage adding that GRV’s clear view is that prohibited substance use will not be tolerated.

“We are committed to eradicating any type of prohibited substance use in Victorian greyhound racing,” Mr Caillard said.

“The original decision to disqualify Mr Bate for just two years was too lenient and we believe the decision of VCAT to increase Mr Bate’s penalty vindicates the Stewards decision to appeal.

“We have increased our swab numbers by 25 per cent in the past year taking close to 4300 individual swabs. We now test out-of-competition, pre-race and post-race in addition to freezing and storing samples for retrospective testing.

“We will continue to address the use of prohibited substances in greyhound racing which will allow the
punter to continue to have confidence in the integrity of our product.”

ARG Opinion:
The key factor here is that the GRV cop the wrath of the greyhound community for fines/suspensions/disqualifications being too lenient or harsh, when in actual fact it’s the RADB that are deciding the penalties imposed within Victoria for serious offences. The RADB are not bound by the guidelines and are completely independent of GRV. The guidelines for penalties for different drug offences are in place as a suggested penalty but are not binding. It comes down to a RADB decision as to the penalty. Well done to the GRV for standing their ground in this case and appealing the decision. Is this just the first of many?

This race is full of front runners and I think the very strong and in form He’s A Villian can get the job done. He has been absolutely flying of late and all he needs is an ounce of luck in running. Yiche is a faultless beginner and she has been racing in consistent fashion. She should settle in the top two early and she has been hitting the line a lot better of late. Kalden Blanco has won three straight and is obviously a great chance again, the only concern with him is that there is a heap of pace drawn on his outside and he will need a few favours in the first 50m as Charmed Assassin will be looking for the fence.

Dyna Arceus has been racing in much stronger company of late over the staying journey and he should appreciate the drop in class. He is going to get back in the field early but he has great track sense and he should be able to pick them off late. Taser Mcbain led all the way here last week in 30.40 and she should give a great sight again. Cherokee Mclaren should settle in the top two or three and he is aiming for a hat trick of wins, whilst Montgomery Road has turned in some big performances of late and he only needs a clear run early to feature.

She’s Illusive has scored two handy wins of late and the most impressive of those two wins came from wide draws. I am expecting her to begin well and she should assume control as they head into the first turn. Flying Bale is well placed in the pink and he should get a nice cart across early. Bogie Yates has had no luck in his past two runs and with a clean getaway he can make an impact, whilst Breaker Kahn could be the big improver, he is much better than his recent form reads.

Manila Express recently scored a strong 43.75 win here in a similar field and with a clear passage early she should repeat the dose. She has a clear class edge and with slow beginners drawn underneath she should be able to settle in the top two or three early. Spring Amanda is in brilliant form and she should lead for a long way, whilst Pandora’s Sin has won four of seven over this journey and she is drawn to hit the scoreboard again.

Danyo’s Luke pinged the lids on Monday and he beat a quality lineup when scoring here in 30.04. With a similar get away tonight he should be able to lead all the way again. Big Zap is well drawn out wide and he turned in a monster effort when placed here last time. He should get plenty of room to muster speed early and I would expect him to settle in a more prominent position early. Allen Illem is a class act and he is rarely far away and with the suitable rails draw he should be running home into the minor money.

Galilee Spirit is a very fast chaser when on the bunny and from the red he should be able to hold them out early and score. He scored three sizzling wins here in September and he really looks suited here. Dakota Premier is much better than his recent form reads and he is surprisingly well drawn in the middle. Genghis Kahn will be steaming home late and he only needs a bit of luck through the first turn. Winbrook rounds out the chances, he is well drawn out wide and he should be at peak fitness after three runs from a spell.

Wild Soul continually finds a way to win and with the speed drawn underneath him tonight he should get every chance to score again. He has the ability to lead or come from off the speed so it’s very hard to tip against him. Dustnado showed great pace when placed behind Oakvale Destiny last time and he should give a great sight. Valladares is well drawn out wide and he was a recent Adelaide Cup finalist. Proven Juddy can ping the lids and if he gets across he should prove very hard to gun down.

Emerley Senorita is racing in career best form and she should lead from go to whoa. She will looked to get wide at the first turn but she should have superior speed to her rivals and she should be suited by the drop in class. Punishment was a tad disappointing here last week but he is well drawn again and he should be right in the mix. Red Line Lad has the ability to cause an upset, he has posted three impressive placings here of late and he will be hitting the line strongly.

Camouflage Model is a reliable beginner and she returned to form with a zippy 31.31 Strathalbyn win last time out. There is no speed drawn around her so she should get a cheap lead and she will build up a nice lead mid race. Victa Victoria showed signs of her best form when placed here last Thursday, she too will be suited by the smaller field.

With a keen railer drawn directly underneath she should be able to get a nice cart across early and she should find herself in the top two as they head through the bend. Bogie Classic has been racing well of late but she hasn’t received a lot of luck, if she can get away cleanly she should be able to make a big impact.

Young Gun Mcbain has been placed in seven of his past eight and he deserves to break through. There isn’t much speed underneath him so if he can get away evenly he should have more than enough speed to drive to the early lead, he is much better than these and he looks a moral. Deadly Caper will be hitting the line hard and he continues to improve, the draw doesn’t help but as long as he can settle just off the speed he will be a major player. Fiesty Fairy can show early speed in her races and she may give a good sight, whilst Asuka Bale is drawn to be in the mix.

This extremely popular event will again carry a winner’s purse of $7,000, which will be presented to winning connections next Thursday.

Key Performers:

Shelby Thunder (7) will make his debut in heat one from for trainer Deen Parkinson after an impressive 22.73 performance trial at the track last week. Leading all the way from box five, this impeccably bred son of Cosmic Rumble and Cindeen Shelby will be well supported by punters, despite exiting from box seven. Shelby Thunder appears to have inherited some of his mother’s notable early speed after clocking a fast first sectional of 5.31.

Gauge This (6) and Harry Bailey (8) will step out in heat two, with both greyhounds recording an outstanding time of 22.68 in their respective performance trials at Maitland. Walter Simmons’ Gauge This is a son of Lochinvar Marlow and Hail Queenie and was brilliant last week, leading all the way and scoring by five lengths at the finish. Harry Bailey is another promising youngster from renowned breeders Brett and Deborah May, with the son of Brett Lee and Daydream prepared by astute trainer Anthony Azzopardi. Exiting from box five last week, Harry Bailey saluted by two lengths and recorded a fast early split of 5.28, which will help him get across from the wide alley.

It wouldn’t be a maiden series without Martin and Fiona Hallinan making an impact and Zipping Midge (1) is looking to do just that in heat three. The daughter of Fabregas and Zipping Jewel sizzled around Maitland two weeks ago in 22.65 and is certain to be familiar with the 400m distance, being prepared by master Hunter Valley trainer Jason Mackay. In-form trainer Melinda Finn will be looking to continue her winning ways with Winsome Jacko, who will exit from box eight in the same heat and comes off a flying 26.19 performance trial at Bulli. This son of El Grand Senor and Ramblin’ Ruby will certainly test this field at the finish.

In heat four, Winsome Jacko’s litter mate Winsome Mission will start from box six after a brilliant 25.50 performance trial over the 450m two weeks. Trainer Melinda Finn has decided drop the son of El Grand Senor and Ramblin’ Ruby back in distance and he will have to overcome a tricky draw to figure prominently in this event.

Finn will again unleash another talented prodigy from El Grand Senor and Ramblin’ Ruby in heat five, with Winsome Warrior (6) simply outstanding at Richmond on Saturday night, recording 22.66 over the 400m and blitzing his rivals from box seven. Despite another awkward box draw, this greyhound illustrated blinding speed in his only trial and should post a smart time with a repeat performance. Looking to upset the favourite with be Lord Licrick (7) for owner-trainer Robert Green. This son of Oaks Road and Myron’s Angel performance trialled a month ago at Richmond and was equally impressive over the 400 in 22.69. Green will be confident with his charges chances, particularly being drawn inside a slow beginner.

Christine Proctor has another live chance in heat six with Master Gee (8), who clocked a sizzling time of 22.56 at this track in a performance trial last month. The 35kg son of El Grand Senor and Oh Em Gee destroyed his rivals by nine and a quarter lengths from box five and makes his racing debut from box eight.

Two outstanding prospects will line up in the final heat of the day, with Melinda Finn’s Winsome Bluey exiting from box one. The son of El Grand Senor and Ramblin’ Ruby finished second to Winsome Jacko in a performance trial at Bulli two weeks ago, clocking a fast time of 26.25 over the 472m. The 36kg heavyweight showed a great turn of acceleration and should handle this track and distance with ease. Beautifully bred chaser Petal Sannette also finished second in her only performance trial to date, clocking a speedy time of 22.71 earlier this month at Maitland. The Kevin Johnson trained daughter of Cosmic Rumble and Bloss Sannette battled on gamely behind Zipping Midge and expect a big showing from box two.

All eight heat winners will move through to next week’s $7,000 final, which was won last year by Devine Awe in a time of 22.52 for local trainer Pat Parrelli.
