Townsville Preview 29 August 2017

Four heats of the Group 3 Townsville Cup and two heats of the North Queensland Sprint will be held at the Townsville Greyhound Racing Club this Tuesday night.  Grandchester trainer Tony Brett who is fresh from winning the National Sprint Final on Friday night, has brought a strong team of greyhounds (Zabdon Ferrari, Split Image and Opal Nera) to North Queensland.

Townsville Cup Heat 1

Zadbon Ferrari (4) found form last start when winning in good time at Ipswich over 431m. The Rockhampton Cup runner-up will jump well and could prove hard to catch.
Roll So Deep (2) was a strong winner over this course and distance two starts back. He looks well drawn in box 2.
Gadsby’s Road (1) jumped well and was never headed when winning at Albion Park last start. He has won three of five starts from the inside box.

Townsville Cup Heat 2
Fire To Rain (8) is racing in good form. Last stat over this course and distance he raced away to win by 8.25 lengths.
Chips Ahoy (5) won over this course and distance two starts ago. He started well that night and will need to do so again from the tricky box.
Bruton Miss (4) has won five of nine starts over this course and distance. She will need to improve on recent form but I capable of doing so.

Townsville Cup Heat 3
Split Image (7) is a classy sprinter who finished fifth in the Queensland Sprint Final last start. Three starts back she was an impressive winner of the Rockhampton Cup.  
Innocent Man (8) has been racing in consistent form which includes a 5.25 length win over this course and distance three starts ago.
Swap Ya (5) improved last start to win here over this course and distance. He’s awkwardly drawn so will need to start well.

Townsville Cup Heat 4

Opal Nera (1) is a quick beginner who is ideally drawn in box 1. Last start he finished third to Jury in the Queensland Sprint Final.
Rocket’s Magic (8) resumes following a two-month break. He has an excellent record over the course and distance, having won nine of fifteen.
Whatta Pass (6) won over this course and distance three starts back. He started from this box that night.  
 
North Queensland Sprint Heat 1

Kerrie’s A Minx (2) has built a very good record over this distance. She was quick to begin when winning over this course and distance two starts back. Box 2 suits.
Sky Lark (5) is awkwardly drawn but is more than capable of running well if he jumps on terms with the other greyhounds.
Go Gwan (7) won well over this course and distance three starts back when jumping from the outside box. A repeat of that run will see him go close.

North Queensland Sprint Heat 2

Maywyn Accolades (3) has won her past two starts over this course and distance in good style. She is well drawn in box 3.
Universal One (8) has won two of his last three starts over this distance. If he can cross from the outside box then he will be right in the finish.
Black Mass (6) won over this course and distance two starts back before narrowly going down last start. He’s capable of running quick time.
