In-form chaser Neo Cleo looks the greyhound to beat in Saturday’s Snow Queen final after her outstanding 29.96 heat victory over the weekend.
The daughter of Cosmic Rumble and Ruby Ha Ha held her position off box one beautifully, and after initially trailling early leader Dyna Hinkley, took over down the back straight to record an almost nine-length win in the fastest time among the four quality heats.
The Robert Neocleous-trained chaser has again drawn box one for the $12,000-to-the-winner final and looks set to continue her rich vein of form in next week’s decider. If victorious, she will surpass $100,000 in prizemoney and become the 21st Cosmic Rumble offspring to achieve such a feat.
She will take on the likes of Dyna Uni, who was also impressive following a super 30.01 victory. The sister to recent Group 1 Maturity winner Dyna Patty easily recorded a PB and will start from box seven in the final.
Other heat winners on the night included Go Seek Heidi who scored in 30.21, and Zipping Olympia, who paid $13 on SuperTAB after stopping the clock at 30.12.
Next week’s final – open only to female chasers with female handlers – is part of our Girls Night Out celebrations, helping raise funds for Look Good Feel Better – Facing Cancer With Confidence.
Neo Cleo scores in a fast 29.96.
