Saturday night racing comes from The Meadows once again with the first of 12 at 7.13pm.
The Saturday night meeting has become renown for its staying handicap to open the proceedings and once agin this is the case. The mighty Sweet It Is (pictured) will step off the five metre handicap which means she’ll be giving away a massive head start. She will need to bring her ‘A’ game to salute.
Cousin Cosmo will exit the rails alley in the second of the night after two sold placings at the venue (Replay). He looks set to bounce into the winners’ list here. With a fast beginner on his outside I’ll be expecting the red rug to track through into the action early behind Nila Bale and from there he should prove too strong.
The wraps on NSW greyhound Fantastic Dotty are through the roof and this boom young sprinter makes her Victorian debut in the third race. The daughter of Goodesy ran third in the Group 1 Megastar at just her fourth race outing last start. There’s no doubt plenty of eyes will be firmly focussed on seeing how this potential superstar handles herself from the squeeze box at The Meadows.
The middle section of the program sees three heats of the 600m grade fives. Fantastic Dotty’s sister Fantastic Tail lines up from box six in race seven (heat two) and after a 34.09 Dapto 600m track record at her last outing, she looks the one to beat.
The racing is set to wrap up at 11.07pm and if the punters are looking for a get out, it surely has to be another member of the Goodesy x Light Fantastic litter with Fantastic Roxy jumping from the red alley.
Lets hope it’s a ‘Fantastic’ night for punters!
