2010 The Maturity Final Betting Preview

The next elite level greyhound final takes place this Saturday with The Meadows hosting the $50,000-to-the-winner of the Group 1 Maturity Classic (525m).

The final field of eight champions made their way through to the final via last week’s thrilling semis.

Semi winners from last Saturday night were Cosmic Planet (30.16), Graham Bate’s roughie Red Lesta (30.25) who beat the hot favourite Arsonist by a length, the classy El Grand Senor (30.08) and Iceman Raikkonen (30.19).

El Grand Senor is set to start as the odds on favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au in the Maturity final after drawing ideally on the rails, as they have an imposing record of six wins from seven starts wearing the red rug,

The scintillating sprinter was the fastest qualifier last week running a smart 30.08 and looks hard to beat if they can maintain the early lead they are likely to enjoy jumping from box one.

Another favourite with the punters is Heather Collins’ Arsonist.

Drawn in box six for the final, the daughter of Elite State has shown plenty of promise over her career and has won three of her five starts at the track.

With the awkward box draw Arsonist looks best for a Place bet through Ladbrokes.com.au

Winner of the closing semi last week, Iceman Raikkonen also has claims in this cracker final.

The Jeffrey Britton-trained black and white dog is coming off three successive wins, their last two being over this track and distance and as they have never finished out of the money starting from box two are an excellent Each Way choice.

Yet to finish out of the money from box two, Iceman Raikkonen is an excellent Each Way choice at Ladbrokes.com.au

The 2010 Hudson Pacific Maturity Classic Final jumps at 9:50pm at The Meadows on Saturday night as part of a thrilling 10-race card that also includes the scintillating stayers’ showdown, the Group 2 AWM Distance Championship (725m).
