Can ‘Chief’ do the ‘Sambar’?

A sensational card of coursing at Lang Lang tomorrow features 59 up-and-comers in preliminaries of the time-honoured Sylvester Doyle Puppy Championship.

And it’s also highlighted by an array of top liners contesting initial rounds of the Ray Boundy Memorial.

One of the headline acts in the Puppy Championship is the Jason Whybrow-trained Sambar Chief who recently took out the prestigious Victoria Derby. He’s also won three races (all over 350m up Healesville’s straight track) from eight starts.

The Matt Lanigan-trained Mepunga Gertie, who is making her coursing debut, is proven around the ‘circle’ with eight wins from 29 starts.

And NCAV president Peter Craig’s Mar ’19 Fernando Bale x Fair Of Face litter – including Mow A Meadow, Indy’s Happy, Family Trust and Mr. Football – are classy coursers also with ‘circle’ success.

Joint NCAV secretary’s Melanie and Sean Lithgow have eight Puppy Championship aspirants and hold a high opinion of Amazonian Queen.

They also have triple G2 finalist and champion courser Dream Wizard in the Boundy Memorial series which also comprises rising coursing star and capable ‘circle’ sprinter Nangkari (5 from 8) and his litter sister Lalina (13 from 23), Boes Rose (12 from 36) and Custom Roof (7 from 19).

Plus, smart coursing prospects Zipping Atticus, American Missile and Blue Irish.
