It was Showdown who provided the emerging trainer the memorable victory, but it quite easily could have been kennel mate Strategise in the same race.
They ran one-two over the 520-metre journey – both qualifying for this Thursday’s Molly Campbell Silver Dollars series $17,800 feature Final.
They have drawn perfectly to take out the Final, Showdown set to run around in the red jacket, while Strategise will be right next to him in box two.
The time-honoured series is run every year to honour Campbell and her family, who produced the greyhound form guide for all the Queensland tracks and into Northern NSW for a long period of time.
Cutlack, who has four greyhounds in work on top of the many dogs she helps Tzouvelis prepare, is beaming with happiness with the way the duo from her kennel drew for the Final.
“Honestly, the draw could not have been any better,” she said.
“I would not have complained if they drew the other way around, but the way they drew with each one in that box, it is great.
“For both of them, they should not get in each other’s way early on.
“I feel like they are both good chances, Strategise is a bit stronger than Showdown and has performed better on the track.
“They both equally had their chance last week and Showdown came out on top them so it will be interesting to see what they can do this week.”
The two Cutlack runners have each won six races in their career so far, with Strategise boasting a better strike-rate than his mate, winning those events in five less starts than Showdown.
“Hopefully I can get a bit of luck but I am not trying to get ahead of myself,” she said of her duo’s chances in the Molly Campbell Silver Dollars series Final.
