Rival trainer Mario Briganti says Dyna Villa is drawn to win Saturday night’s $145,000 AJS Corporation Silver Chief Classic at The Meadows.
Dyna Villa, the 2014 TAB Melbourne Cup winner, is drawn in Box 1, and he shares favouritism with Dyna Double One, a greyhound that has burst on the scene in recent weeks winning all of his four starts including the second and third fastest times ever recorded over 525m at The Meadows.
Meanwhile, Briganti says his finalist, Emrys, is more than capable of running a place.
“He (Emrys) is one punters should definitely consider including in their Trifectas and First 4s.”
“He made up ground on Dyna Villa in his semi-final last week which showed how strong he is.”
“He unfortunately lacks a quick first section, but he boasts terrific track sense and he is perfectly drawn in Box 2,” Briganti said.
Emrys, who has won five and been placed six times from his 16 starts, is an $18 chance with TAB.
The son of Magic Sprite and Prancing Uno was bred by Bradley Grant and is raced by The Rat Pack Syndicate, which is managed by renowned form analyst Boris Bertschik.
“Boris works out the markets and he rates Emrys a $20 chance. He is a pretty good judge, Boris, so realistically everything would have to go Emrys’ way for him to win.”
“I saying that I think he’s a really good chance to sneak into the placings,” Briganti said.
There’ll be loads of entertainment for kids at Saturday night’s Silver Chief with The Meadows to kick off Greyhound Racing Victoria’s ‘Sensational Summer for Kids’ program, which will be run at selected race meetings across the state during January.
Note: Saturday night’s Quaddie at The Meadows includes a $20,000 Jackpot.
