26 / 08 / 2010 Article by: Editor

THE Betfair Young Star Classic Final (R5) is the highlight on a quality ten event card at Tattersall’s Park tonight.

Octane Assassin while being beaten last week by Mr Issues is still the one to beat.

This son of Pure Octane was checked twice last week and given a clear run this week should atone.

Kennelmate Showtime has done everything asked of him winning his last four and should be respected while Mr Issues is still maturing and can’t be discounted.

The Leigh Wood trained Dang Shen and Ren Shen while being quoted at long prices tonight should be followed with confidence over the coming months.

St. Pierre (R6) looks very hard to beat in the Grade 3.

NSW Owner Chris Nutt is very happy with the way this son of Surf Lorian is racing since moving to Tassie and especially his terrific win in Launceston on Monday running 29.76.

Trainer Debbie Cannan looks to have another top grade dog in her kennels and jumping from the red tonight will suit him, having won five from seven.

Prepost favourite Blue Buddy looks the hardest to beat while Regent Typhoon is resuming and should be kept safe.

The Noel Vince Memorial looks like a field leg in the quadrella with a number of greyhounds having the ability to win.

Best Bets: R4 # 3 Damek, R5 # 2 Octane Assassin, R6 # 1 St. Pierre.

Best E/W: R3 # 7 Edan’s Champ, R8 # 8 First Sergeant, R9 # 8 Cienna’s Pride.
