In­no­cent Man the one to beat when Ham­mer falls

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT - LEE PEARCE

TWO heats of the 5th Grade event over the 498m head­line tonight’s 10- race grey­hounds pro­gram at the Townsville Show­grounds.

Race six is the Big Ham­mer Hard­ware 5th Grade Heat 1 and this heat has a num­ber of chances.

The favourite is bound to be In­no­cent Man ( 4) for Glen Olsen, who is back­ing up from Cairns on Fri­day night and has drawn awk­wardly and needs to jump well.

Slid­ing Door ( 1) has drawn well for her first start over the 498m, but he is bred to go the dis­tance.

Riff ( 2) for Harold Hovi is an­other young­ster hav­ing his first start over the dis­tance so watch the mar­ket.

Not A Word ( 6) for John Forster will be the main dan­ger to the favourite. He has had four starts over the dis­tance for a win and two sec­onds so he has each- way claims.

May­wyn Will Win ( 3) for Jay Schafer has had one start over this dis­tance for a fourth and looks a place chance.

Race seven is the Cheapa Auto Spares 5th Grade Heat 2 over the 498m.

Watch Out Re­nald ( 7) for Rhonda Essery is a for­mer Bris­bane dog that was rac­ing over the 520m at Al­bion Park and Ip­swich. He’s hav­ing his first look at this dis­tance, but will be a place chance.

Nova Party ( 4) for Robert Lound has had six starts over the dis­tance for a win and three plac­ings.

Whatta Pass ( 8) for Olsen is slow away at the jump, but rounds the field in and is very strong in the run home.

Queen Of Caw­dor ( 3) for Schafer can jump out well on her night. She should be there- abouts with the fron­trun­ners and she runs on well.

Mean­while, race eight is the Gold­en­view Greyhound Com­plex Best 8 over 380m.

Slow Dancer ( 2) for Olsen has hit a pur­ple patch lead­ing up to our Cup car­ni­val next month.

She is back­ing up from Cairns on Fri­day night with a win in the Young Guns Heats over the 410m and should make it four wins in a row.
