All five have sprint chances
TONIGHT’S $1600 Mother’s Day Gift Sprint (537m) is only a five-dog field at Winnellie Park, but all runners appear to have claims, including the Andrew Lasker pair of Bombay Rock and Cairnlea Buster.
Phantom Henry is going well for Jamie Hosking, while Allen Ichiro for the Darwin Greyhound Association’s leading trainer Russell Savige is another one to watch.
Richard Carr has a new addition to his kennel and Weona Vee warrants close attention in race one.
Underestimated trainer Simon Nathanael has leading contender Jetmag Sally en- gaged and she will be hard to beat in race two.
Hurricane Chloe (Savige) and Nitro Injected (Richard Smith) both show good early speed and the outside draws can assist their chances in race three.
The Leta Smith-trained Ringbark Lana can bounce back in race four.
Race five has a number of chances, including the Brad Yates-trained Smashniak Rocks from the inside draw.
It is worth watching newcomer Gotta Be Better for trainer Peter Donnelley in race six, as he looks to have nice Victorian form lines.
Big Stink (Brian Kelleher), Out There Jerry (Andrew Lasker), Bluebow (Chris Blackman) and Elite Falcon (Leta Smith) all have solid form going into race seven.
Hosking has Arnhem Mayhem flying at the moment and with a little early luck he will take a power of beating from box one in race eight.
The Chris Blackman team of Heartbreak Hotel and Distant Shores will have a strong say in the finish in race 10.
And promising youngster Eight Princes (Brad Yates) has been a model of consistency, and deserves to break through in race 11.
