Glen Gallon was the fastest heat winner and he appears suitably drawn in box 2.
GALLON AND CHIEF FLY IN THEIR HEATS
Three Victorian-trained greyhounds will be chasing the spoils in Saturday night’s $200,000 Group 1 Perth Cup at Cannington, however veteran Queenslander Glen Gallon is the one to beat after a slashing heat win.
Glen Gallon clocked the time of 30.01sec in his heat over the weekend, with the next best being the Kelvyn Greenough-trained Renegade Chief in 30.12sec.
Greenough’s Hello Goodbye also made it through to the $140,000 to-the-winner final, with the other Victorian qualifier being Grigorieva Bale (Andrea Dailly).
