AFTER losing a meeting due to an electrical fault greyhound racing should have no hiccups at Mowbray tonight.

An 11-race card boasts even fields across the meeting with one of the highlights being two 720m races in which Cheetah Zorro for Brendan Pursell looks as though she will continue on her winning streak from box three in heat one (race 4).

Paper Trail (Doug Cassidy) will be running on strongly and should test the favourite while Surf Osti (Mark Sutcliffe) is a versatile performer and should figure in the finish.

The second heat Race 5) is a much more open affair with Side Com (2) and Happy Tiger (4) both from the Brendan Purcell kennel holding the key to the race.

CanadianBay (Margaret Rossendell) from box six and Dasher Dooley (Maurie Strickland), wearing the red vest, the best of the rest.

The best bet is Amazing Albert (race 7 # 2) trained at Birralee by Lynden Nicholls.

He has been freshened up since a good win in Hobart and he is dropping in grade.  To Be Trew (Susan Gittus) is ideally drawn and looks the testing material.

The value bet tonight is in race three in the form of Booze Anthony (4) trained at Zeehan by Joe Pringle. The dog has experience on his side and should give a good sight.
