The Group One Hobart Thousand Heats are the highlight on the Tasmanian Greyhound Calendar and tonight at Tattersall’s Park they bring together the cream of Australia’s best greyhounds on Australia’s best u turn track.
Heat One (R3) looks a battle between Tassie champ Damek and speedster Mojito.
Last week Damek flew the lids to beat Mojito by over 7 lengths and a repeat of that tonight would ensure a spot in the Final.
Heat Two (R4) looks a match between local Rewind jumping off the red and the Graeme Bate’s WA Derby winner and Melbourne Cup placegetter Allen Elroy.
Tasmania’s own Clyde’s Angel back from an interstate campaign will start favourite in Heat Three (R4) from Invitation specialist Innisfree Miss.
Melbourne Cup winner Dyna Tron for Andrea Dailly looks well drawn in Heat four (R6) with Bate’s youngster Allen Lawson and St Leger winner Lika Whisper the hardest to beat.
Easter Egg winner Radley Bale will be long odds on to take out Heat five (R7) for Graeme Bate.
Another Bate runner David Bale and track specialist Wandy Neg look a great quinella in Heat Six (R8).
Track record holder Bergermeister (25.71) looks hard to hold out in Heat Seven (R9) from Shereen Bale and I’m a Fencer.
While the last heat looks a battle royale between Portarait Ignites, Millie Grace and Allen Hertz..
Best Bets: R3 No 4 Damek, R6 No 7 Dyna Tron, R7 No 3 Radley Bale.
Best E/W: R4 No 1 Rewind, R5 No 2 Innisfree Miss, R9 No 3 Bergermeister.
