Hoping to hone in on a win

April 07, 2018

Devon Meadows chaser Aston Kody staked his claim as the greyhound to beat in tomorrow night’s Northern Districts Cup (450m).

Local owners the Dahl family from Benalla and the Baker family from Wunghnu will be hoping for a big payday next Thursday night.

Their chasers Hone In and Cavatron contest the final of the Group 2 Maitland Cup with a winner’s cheque of $40000 up for grabs.

Hone In broke the track record in his heat win and Cavatron only went slightly slower.

With Cavatron drawing box one for the final he has been installed the early favourite just ahead of Hone In, so hopefully the cup will be on display in one of these homes next week.

Last Sunday, Bendigo conducted the Beau of Bendigo final and local trainer Mick Ellis was successful with his greyhound Vander Mick.

This greyhound has always displayed good ability and finally put it all together to win in the terrific time of 23.83 and collect a nice cheque for popular duo Mick and Anne Ellis of Nathalia.

Monday’s racing gets under way at 7pm with the Finer Fruits maiden and concludes at 10.47pm, with plenty of exciting races throughout the night.

Race six could be a value bet for punters with Twilight Liaison competing for the Vantaarling family of Tallygaroopna, this greyhound went super when winning here a couple of weeks back and if he can find the lead again the odds of 16/1 look juicy.

Damaging Lomar looks extremely hard to beat in the fourth race of the night, this quick chaser just needs to find the early lead to show his best and with two notable slow beginners drawn inside him he should find the fence quickly and be too good on the night.

Race 12 might be worth staying around for as William Cabang looks a terrific chance after drawing box one, and this race looks ideal for this handy greyhound to get back in the winner’s circle.

Patrons, don’t forget to come out and try the club’s new caterer The Butler’s Pantry — well known for their business in Numurkah — guests are sure to get a quality meal at a great price.
