Tonight’s SA Breeders Plate Final Preview

Held tonight, the 2010 Sandown Cup Final is undoubtedly the highlight greyhound event of the week, however another quality group race also set to take place tonight is the $20,000-to-the-winner Group 3 SA Breeders Plate Final (515m) at Angle Park.

Featuring the best South Australian bred greyhounds whelped between November 2007 and April 2008, the SA Breeders Plate final is shaping up to be an exciting event as eight great dogs take to the track.

Likely to start as the odds-on favourite is the ever consistent Where’s Pancho. Where’s Pancho has been sensational over his short 15 race career winning 10 of his starts including his last nine from 10 at this track and distance.

Despite drawing awkwardly with box five, Where’s Pancho has the early speed to spear to the front and lead all-the-way here and if he gets away well he will be hard to catch.

Where’s Pancho is one of two dogs that have made the finals for Gawler River-based trainer Pearce, who will also be represented by Where’s Cisco drawn well in box three. Although coming off two wins at Angle Park, Where’s Cisco may be slightly outclassed here especially with top speedster Tomic drawn on their inside, but if lucky could cause an upset at good odds.

Although not as consistent as some of their rivals, Tomic boasts the fastest personal best time here, a scintillating 29.72 which they ran back in September last year. This son of boom sire Collision is definitely one of the classiest runners here and one of the more experienced with 31 races to his name.

With a brilliant box two draw, from which he has won three of his four starts from, and some solid recent form including a win on April 28 here, Tomic will be another favourite with the punters tonight.

Also worth keeping an eye on is promising bitch Gable La Flash wearing the pink rug. The lightly raced daughter of Gable Lafourche has had 11 race starts, all over 515m at Angle Park, and has won six of these, her best time 30.00. Having her maiden start from box eight, Gable La Flash looks good for a Place bet here.

The 2010 SA Breeders Plate Final will take place as race eight on Angle Park’s cracker 11 event card tonight and is due to jump at 9:14pm.
