2010 Black Top Final Betting Preview

This Saturday night the next big greyhound final will take place when The Gardens host the $35,000-to-the-winner Group 2 Multicam Routing Systems Black Top (515m).

Heats for the Black Top were held last week with the top two dogs from each qualifier progressing onto this week’s final showdown.

Drawn well in box eight Snozz will be hard to beat so check out their odds at Ladbrokes.com.au

The fastest qualifier from last week was Jason MacKay’s speedy son of Bombastic Shiraz, Snozz, the veteran dog in red hot form of late winning three of their past four starts.

Snozz ran a scintillating 29.51 in the heats beating home race favourite Daydream by over three lengths after jumping from box eight and will be wearing the pink rug again on Saturday night.

Appearing in his 11th Group race final, Snozz is yet to win at this level having placed five times and finished fourth on three and is sure to be the sentimental favourite.

Another heat winner from last week who also boasts the fastest personal best here is the Reg Kay-trained Elite Blue Size.

Daydream in box two looks ideal for a Place bet at Ladbrokes.com.au having finished second to Snozz in the heats

The brilliant blue dog recently failed to place at Dapto but was back to their best in the Black Top qualifiers. Elite Blue Size, however, has some work to do in the final after drawing awkwardly with box six.

The other two dogs finishing first in their qualifiers were Bit Stressed who beat home Tuiaki in a race where hot favourite Mr. Metz was knocked out, and New Divide who held on to defeat the race favourite Flash Of Light.

Trained by Brett May, Bit Stressed will jump from box seven on Saturday night and despite having won their past three starts at The Gardens looks a bit outclassed here, while New Divide has drawn box four and has won four from their past four here.

Brett May also has his smart bitch and National Futurity champion Daydream lining up in the Black Top final from box two who looks ideal for a Place bet at Ladbrokes.com.au.

Runner-up to New Divide in the heats, Flash Of Light, stands a strong chance in the Black Top final after drawing ideally on the rails and is best for an Each Way bet at Ladbrokes.com.au.

The 2010 Muticam Systems Black Top Final is programmed as race six on The Garden’s mega 11-event card for Saturday night and is due to jump at 7:08pm.
