Plenty of pups in with a shot

Townsville Bulletin - - RACING - LEE PEARCE

GREY­HOUND rac­ing at the Townsville Show­grounds tonight fea­tures an 11-race pro­gram, head­lined by the City Coun­cil May­ors Tro­phy over 498m.

This will be a great race to watch and will have the pun­ters scratch­ing their heads.

Al­li­ga­tor Creek trainer Joan Newn­ham has lit­ter brothers Czarny (2), Dal­matyn­ski (8) and Old Mate Kick (3) in this race, with Czarny win­ning last week’s Townsville Coun­try Cup fi­nal in 28.78 sec­onds from box one. He has drawn well again, close to the rails, and if he be­gins well, will be very hard to catch. Dal­matyn­ski has drawn wide this week af­ter run­ning sec­ond to Czarny from box two and will need to jump and get a clear run to cross to the rails.

Old Mate Kick has drawn well close to the rails and should be up there early.

Nome trainer Glen Olsen has two in this race, with In­no­cent Man (1) draw­ing well on the rails, and he can be­gin on his night and muster speed mid race, mean­ing he’s a big dan­ger to Czarny.

Slow Dancer (4) will be up there, and Poppy Chooky (6) for Heath Ar­dle would have to be one of the out­siders and could sneak a place.

OUT­SIDE CHANCE: Poppy Chooky to fea­ture in tonight’s City Coun­cil May­ors Tro­phy.
