Top dogs ready to fly out of the box at Show­grounds tonight

Townsville Bulletin - - RACING -

GREY­HOUND rac­ing re­turns to the Townsville Show­grounds tonight with an 11- race pro­gram.

Race 6 is the Bur­nett Fam­ily 4th Grade over the 380m. This is an open race with a few chances.

Dil­ston Brae ( 1) for Ge­orge Tsakissiris loves the rails. He be­gins well and will be a big chance. He won his last in Cairns over the 410m and has each- way claims. Tr­isha Nolan ( 5) for Rhonda Essery is a big show af­ter her win last week from the same box.

Univer­sal One ( 4) for Kerry Grif­fin got away for a good win last week from box three in 21.79s and if he jumps like he did then he will be hard to beat. Korcheck ( 2) for Nancy May­nard ran a good sec­ond last week be­hind Black Mass.

Race 8 is the All Rig Lift­ing & En­gi­neer­ing Best 8 over 380m. Os­car Tango ( 1) for Michael Clark has drawn well close to the rails and has each- way claims. Face Time ( 2) for Glen Olsen is also well drawn. He is bet­ter suited close to the rails.

Favourite Chips Ahoy ( 7) for Rhonda Essery is go­ing for his fourth straight win. He has good box man- ners and will be hard to catch. Gold To­tal ( 5) for John Bar­row is con­sis­tent with three plac­ings from his last four starts and is a place chance.

Race 9 is the K. G. Home­brew Sup­plies 4/ 5th Grade over the 498m. This race will be one to watch with sev­eral chances. The favourite, Riff ( 5) for Harold Hovi, has not drawn well again, but as he showed in the fi­nal last week he can jump from any box and still lead the field.

Not A Word ( 1) for John Forster is con­sis­tent per­former who this week has drawn the rails and will run another bold race. Pass The Ammo ( 2) for Robert Lound has drawn to run another good race af­ter a good win last week from box five place chance.
