Daily Mail: Prospective superstars

Bendigo moves to the prime Sunday timeslot today to kick off two brand new age-restricted events which have attracted a number of up-and-coming stars.

Three heats of the Bendigo Roses (425m) and The Prospector (425m) – for female and male greyhounds respectively – will be run with both finals to be held on Friday night boasting a $15K first prize.

Aston Flame (5 from 7), a litter sister to Aston Rupee and Aston Fastnet, is among the most exciting talents in the Roses heats (read more), while Paua Of Buddy (3 from 4), Masked Avenger (10 from 21), Mepunga Reject (Cranbourne Winter Cup) and Rebellious (6 from 8),  are three of the more notable names in The Prospector series.

Later at Bendigo, the brilliant Barooga Smoke (G3 Easter Gift) faces a tricky challenge first up from a spell.
At Sandown today, Koblenz (14 from 19) is putting his nine-race winning streak on the line when he takes on Collinda Patty (3 from 6), the latter being two from two since joining Jason Thompson’s team. Both greyhounds took out finals in brilliant fashion on Pink Diamond night.

And at Sale tonight watch for Lakeview Cruiser (3rd Australian Cup) and Omega Dodge (5 of past 8).

Here’s an extensive analysis of today’s Must Watch Race, and be sure to scroll down further for ? The Watchdog’s $10 spend

? MUST-WATCH RACE: The Prospector Heat 1


? Bendigo ? Race 5 ? 425m 1:14pm

Form ?

The Watchdog says ?: Cracking series and this heat sees five potential stars do battle. PAUA OF BUDDY (3) is going to be the punters elect and rightly so, as he comes into this having won three of three at Warragul and all of those wins have been in scintillating times. On each occasion, he has shown blistering pace soon after box rise, so with the abundance of pace drawn inside, he will need to do everything right initially. WEBLEC RAIDER (2) captured the rich Pink Diamond Maiden Sprinter Final (500m) here last week and he will appreciate the drop back in distance. He has proven to be a reliable beginner to date, and he should be able to settle in the top three early. With the ability to go sub 23.70sec, he can make a big impact. MASKED AVENGER (7) has won five of six over this track/distance and he can really burn in the early stages. He recorded his blistering 23.68sec PB from this draw and if the inside division bunch early, he may get the fly mid race. YOHAN BALE (1) and SUBSTANTIAL (5) round out the leading chances. ‘Yohan’ continues to improve with each run and from the inside draw he can hold the early lead and may cause an upset. SUBSTANTIAL is as talented as any other greyhound in the event, however he will need a little room to move soon after box rise.

The Watchdog says ? : The first leg is stacked with talent, so we are taking four runners in the hope of finding some value. NIKOLO BALE (2) and SODA TITAN (3) are both jets and should have a great battle in the second leg. REBELLIOUS (8) is one of the most exciting chasers in work and he is drawn to get every chance in the third leg. MY NAME’S CRAIG (1) is suitably graded, in capable hands and is expected to fire fresh.

The Watchdog says ? : FOUR PILLARS (1) is a star prospect and from the inside draw he is expected to lead, with a top two finish looking likely. GOT A TRUMP (6) is a jet and he will appreciate the empty draw, so with an ounce of luck he should figure prominently. DR. MADISON (2) is all class and should go with the red (Omega Dodge) for most of the journey. SWEET CHANELLE (5) is racing well enough, and she is expected to cross and lead.

The Watchdog says ? : KOBLENZ (4) and COLLINDA PATTY (7) are both airborne at present and they will match motors throughout, whilst NEW JACK SWING (1) and TRON (5) are both strong and one of them can sneak into third spot.

? Sandown ? Race 11 ? Box 2 ? 595m ⏱ 5:23pm
TAB fixed odds: $2.10 Win

The Watchdog says ? : He took a few runs to find his feet in Victoria, however last time out at The Meadows he showed his true ability when charging away to score in a handy 30.33sec. He is bred to be a star stayer, so he should appreciate the slight rise in distance today and the smaller line-up will help his cause.
