Queensland’s Group 1 Gold Cup (710m) series was thrown open when superstar Victorian litter brothers, Tornado Tears and Rippin’ Sam, were beaten in their respective heats on Thursday night despite starting as odds-on favourites.
Both greyhounds encountered interference and finished third, however with only two heats being conducted the first four across the finish line have progressed through to this Thursday night’s $75,000 to-the-winner final at Albion Park.
Tornado Tears remains a firm $1.70 favourite to win the final ahead of fellow Robert Britton-trained greyhounds Rippin’ Sam ($3.30) and Benali ($8).
HEAT 1: Benali (2) defeats Gelantipy Gold (6) and Rippin’ Sam (3) in 41.91sec.
HEAT 2: Jalapeno (1) defeats Shoes to Fill (7) and Tornado Tears (2) in 41.75 (Best)
