Leading greyhound trainer Robert Britton is downplaying the chances of his budding superstar Here’s Tears in Saturday night’s Group 1 Fanta Bale Super Stayers Final (725m) at The Meadows.
A full younger brother to five-time Group 1 winning stayer Tornado Tears, Here’s Tears (pictured above left) franked his potential with a track record run over 715m at Sandown Park last month.
He has had two starts for two 2nds since that phenomenal run, and he is on the third line of betting at $4.50 to claim the $100,000 first prize after drawing box two.
“He’ll need to lead to win and it’s hard to see that happening given the quality of greyhounds drawn either side of him,” Britton said.
“True Detective (box one) was the fastest heat winner and he’ll be running similar time again, while Rajasthan (box three) is a quick beginner and a big chance to lead.”
Here’s Tears has won 10 races from 25 starts, with Britton believing his greyhound is another 10 starts or so away from hitting his straps as a stayer.
