Lamia Bale has the chance to win her second Sandown Park feature in as many weeks in this Sunday’s Group 2 Macro Meats Laurels final.
Trained by Steve and Heather Collins, Lamia Bale won the Group 3 Sir John Dillon Memorial (595m) just a week ago. The daughter of High Earner and Maple Bale is also looking to win her fourth race in 17 days at the Springvale venue.
Her only defeat at the track in her last four runs came last Sunday where she ran second to Weblec Rose.
This could have been a result of her stirring victory in the Sir John Dillon Memorial just two days prior and co-trainer Heather Collins believes her star greyhound will be raring to go this Sunday from box six.
“She’s picked up (recovered) really well after her run last Sunday,” Heather Collins of Lara said.
“We are expecting a good performance on Sunday she is ready to go.
“She is the type of greyhound that wants to be the boss and is high-energy. She loves to race and race often.”
Jeff Britton’s kennel has been dominated in the series so far. Entering 11 greyhounds in the heats three weeks ago, Britton has qualified three for the final.
The final of the Group 2 Macro Meats Laurels is race eight this Sunday at Sandown Park.
