Champion Victorian duo Orson Allen and Tornado Tears are in the box seat to qualify for the National Sprint and Distance Grand Finals in Perth on 24 August.
All state finals will be conducted this Thursday, with comprehensive coverage to take place on Sky 2 between 8pm and 10pm.

However, should they win their respective state finals, the duo’s Wildcard status will be passed down the rankings to other greyhounds.
