A host of Victorian-trained greyhounds will be in Adelaide tonight for heats of South Australia’s premier greyhound race, the Group 1 Adelaide Cup.
Ollie Bale is favourite to win the series at $6.00, ahead of Campaspe Will at $6.50 and Allen Deed at $7.00, while the shortest priced non-Victorian trained greyhound is reigning champion and local hero Ernie Bung Arrow at $8.00.
Norm Walls, trainer of Campaspe Will, is confident about his greyhound’s chances of winning his way into the $107,000 final despite the fact he has never been to Angle Park before.
“I’m on the road as we speak and he is travelling alright. He has Box 1 tonight, a draw he has won from before, and I give him a genuine chance even though he has never been to Adelaide before.”
“Whatever happens tonight will be a good learning curve for him,” the 84-year-old hobby trainer from Melton said.
Victorian-trained greyhounds have an amazing record in the race, having won the previous five Adelaide Cups prior to Ernie Bung Arrow.
Meanwhile, Farmor Las Vegas is the only Victorian-trained greyhound engaged in the heats of the Group 3 Gold Coast Cup series at Albion Park tonight.
