Race 3 Gold Cup Heat 1
#3 Aussie Infrared
He’s been racing in much easier class and faces his toughest test to date here. There is a stack of pressure either side of him with Ultimate Magic and Black Mumbo being reliable beginners. Wynburn Toozie will also be coming across from the outside which should add to the pressure. He’s a dog to follow going forward but I am keen to take him on tonight.
LAY (WIN) Aussie Infrared on the Betfair SP
Race 10 Gold Cup Heat 8
#2 Barton Bale
This chaser may well be greyhound racing’s next superstar. He has an unbelievable amount of ability and the sky is the limit. He has incredible acceleration at box rise and is running amazing sectionals for such a young dog. Looks well drawn here as Nitro Swagger has been risky at box rise in his past two starts here and Alpha Hermes tends to go right out of the boxes. I’m hoping he can be a long way out in front and hold on to win. American Monster and Blazin’ Bomber will be thundering home but it’s likely to be all too late.
