The Rockhampton Cup HEATS UP!

ANZAC Day hosts the Rockhampton Cup Heats, check the talent below to get to know the local stars!

HEAT 1

Del Rey (Box 8)

Launceston Cup Winner earlier this year and been in fantastic form since then, winning multiple city races.

First go at this trip here, but certainly has a lot of talent and is the one to beat in this. Isn’t the fastest beginner, but is very strong.

Albion Park

Easter Trophy Bne 520 F 520m

HEAT 2

big bad bob (Box 7)

Looking for his 6th consecutive win when jumping from box 6 in heat 2. In red hot form, including recently taking out the Easter Trophy at Albion Park as well as a Wentworth Park victory last week.

Strong greyhound and can motor home hard. First look at the track, but definitely the most talented one in this. Main danger is Air Time, from box 2.

Great beginner and extremely strong. Should be odd on favourite in this.
