Sky Lark draws well in high- qual­ity con­test

Townsville Bulletin - - RACING - LEE PEARCE

GREY­HOUND rac­ing re­turns to the Townsville Show­grounds tonight af­ter a twoweek break with a nine- race pro­gram.

Race 6 is the All Rig Lift­ing & En­gi­neer­ing 3/ 4th Grade over 380m.

This has a top- qual­ity field with Sky Lark ( 1), for Michael Hick­mott, draw­ing well af­ter his two races in Cairns, win­ning the 4/ 5th Grade heats over 410m, and run­ning sec­ond in the fi­nal last week.

Pale­face Scotch ( 2), for Rhonda Essery, has been a model of con­sis­tency. He will be right in this and can pose a dan­ger to the favourite.

In­no­cent Man ( 3), for Glen Olsen, will start favourite. He is in good form with a last- start win in Cairns over 544m to win the Cairns Cup Con­so­la­tion.

He is drop­ping back in dis­tance and will be the one to beat.

Atomic Opie ( 8), for Ge­orge Tsakissiris, is re­turn­ing af­ter run­ning a sec­ond last week in Cairns be­hind Slow Dancer, and she loves could sur­prise.

Race 7 is the Lounds Fresh Seafood 4/ 5th Grade over 498m, and has a good field with sev­eral chances.

Chips Ahoy ( 3), for Rhonda Essery, has strong claims over this dis­tance in­clud­ing a best time of 28.69 and should start favourite.

Brother Rob ( 4), for Glen Olsen, has been a model of con­sis­tency of late, run­ning a good third be­hind his lit­ter brother In­no­cent Man — win­ner of the Cairns Cup Conso- this track and la­tion over 544m. This young­ster is drawn well and only needs a bit of luck.

Olsen’s other dog, Whatta Pass ( 6), ran sec­ond be­hind his lit­ter brother last week in the Cairns Cup Con­so­la­tion and will be storm­ing home to­wards the end of the race.

Race 8 is the Tella Pho­tog­ra­phy 1st and 2nd Grade over 380m. Oscar Tango ( 1), for Michael Clark, is re­turn­ing to rac­ing af­ter a six­month break and has drawn ide­ally. Watch the mar­ket first- up.
