The world’s best greyhounds in the one place, at the one time… That’s greyhound racing at The Meadows this Saturday night for 12 heats of the Group 1 Maturity.
Heat one kicks off the superb night of racing at 7.18pm and the highly promising Zambora Brockie appears tough to beat in the opener. There’s no doubt the Anthony Azzopardi-trained greyhound will need an ounce of luck in the early section, but given that we expect the son of Nitro Burst to be on the winner’s list again.
‘Australia’s best’ Fernando Bale (pictured) lines up from box four in race four. The star sprinter should continue his incredible run of wins to 16 in heat four of the Group 1 Maturity.
Weston East has drawn perfectly in his heat from box number two. The super strong son of Oaks Road showed his strength in his classy 29.43 win at Sandown Park two runs ago (Replay) and he appears ideally drawn to gain a similar run resulting in another win.
Despite the short price I’m keen on Dyna Double One in race eight. This freakish sprinter has a flying 29.43 P.B at the venue and his last start placing in Brisbane’s Winter Cup was good and I have no doubt he will handle the Meadows circuit much better than Albion Park. The son of Barcia Bale has often trialled faster then his super star kennel mate Fernando Bale and I think from box two on Saturday, the son of Barcia Bale can run the arms off the clock with a dominant win.
The last of a dozen is set for decision at 10.58pm and the inform Gaucho looks the goods for inform trainer Brooke Ennis. Gaucho produced the goods in a smart free for all at Sandown Park last outing with a 1.75length win in 29.37 and I get the feeling this promising chaser is starting to string it all together (Replay). His last three wins have all been from wide draws and I’m of the opinion that the inside alley can only improve and assist his chances of taking out the Group 1 heat.
That wraps up the preview for the massive night of racing at The Meadows this Saturday night.. Good luck, happy punting and be there!
