Box Greyhound Trainer Trainer says Odds
GLEN GALLON Tony Brett 
[Grandchester]
“He is a hit or miss beginner, but his inside draw is a huge advantage. Radley Bale and Oaks Road are the main dangers.” $3.00
RADLEY BALE Graeme Bate 
[Lara]
 ”He’s a chance in every race he competes in. He came out airborne in his Launceston Cup win on Monday and is a huge chance again along with Glen Gallon.” $9.00
GODSEND Jason Thompson 
[Pearcedale]
 ”He’ll need a lot of luck. It’s a great field and if he can run a place he’ll have done a really good job. You could mount a case for every dog in this race.” $26.00
BOGIE KING Ryan Ayre 
[Burpengary]
“He is not as quick as some of the others but he’s a good dog in a field. He ran 3rd in the Topgun from box 4. I think the main danger is Dyna Tron.” $21.00
OAKS ROAD Mark Gatt 
[Thirlmere]
“He will need to begin well to win and he has been beginning very well lately. I’m not unhappy with box 5, but Glen Gallon is the one to beat.” $6.00
DYNA TRON Andrea Dailly 
[Anakie]
“He will need to step. He’s been freshened up for this race after running 3rd in a Perth Cup heat three weeks ago. I’m just hoping he comes out running.”  $3.20
MYSTIC APPLE Val Awramenko 
[Waurn Ponds]
“He’s normally a terrific beginner and whoever gets to the front at the start will win the race. I suspect it will be Radley Bale or Dyna Tron.” $12.00
CAPE HAWKE Jamie Ennis 
[Lara]
“From box 8 it is just about mission impossible. Mystic Apple can bark a lot right before he races which could make it hard for Cape Hawke to hear the lure.” $4.50
SHEREEN BALE Graeme Bate 
[Lara]
 FIRST RESERVE $12.00
PRINCE DIABLO John Finn 
[Warilla]
 SECOND RESERVE SCR
