28 / 07 / 2010 Article by: Editor

THE classy Sultan’s Swing (R5) will go head to head with the consistent Eagle Eye in tonight’s Invitation at Tatersall’s Park.

Sultan’s Swing has won her last four on the trot at Hobart and this daughter of Big Daddy Cool has terrific box manners and brilliant early speed and looks set to dominate top grade races in Tasmania over the coming months.

2009 consistent Greyhound of the Year is a warhorse who just loves to race and on Monday night his blistering early speed set up another feature win at Launceston.

This son of Bond trained at Penguin by Butch Deverell will look for the rail at box rise and only this could stop the Sultan from winning again.

Buzzin’ will again be one for the multiples after his terrific second last week.

Ella Lucy (R10) again for Deverell has the makings of a smart sprinter with similar habits to her mum, champion bitch Copper Delight.

Having had twenty starts for four wins and six placings, she ran her personal best here early in the month in the semi of the Breeder’s (26.22) and a repeat of that run tonight should send punters home on a winning note.

Hardest for her to beat will be Mushy Peas while Capetown Gem could be the value in the multiples.

Samurai Kid (R7) for Westbury trainer Jill Stamford has won his last five in a row and now that he has learnt to jump he is going to be very hard to beat in any race he contests and tonight he looks a special.

Best Bets: R2 No 3 Mackie Slater, R7 No 8 Samurai Kid, R10 No 4 Ella Lucy.

Best E/W: R1 No 6 Naked Flame, R6 No 3 Daegan, R8 No 2 Kialdu Grace.
