THE Hobart Greyhound Racing Club’s meeting at Tattersall’s Park in Hobart tonight boasts its first meeting over the 709-metre journey.

The new distance has been ready to go for the past six weeks but there have not been sufficient nominations to stage a race over the new long distance trip.

All four distances will feature on the 11-race card with one each over 340m, 599m and 709m and the balance (8) over 461m.

One of Tasmania’s best stayers Ming Dynasty will contest the first race over 709 metres.

Ming Dynasty represented Tasmania at the National Distance Championship in Queensland last month and she is the likely favourite.

The Susan Gittus-trained bitch trialed over 709m last week and handled the circuit well.
