2010 Brisbane Cup Field, Box Draw & Preview

This Thursday night, December 2, Brisbane’s premier greyhound racing venue at Albion Park will come alive with the running of the 2010 Brisbane Cup.

The $80,000 Group 1 Brisbane Cup (520m), worth $55,000 in prize money to the winner, is one of the biggest events on the Australian greyhound racing calendar and features a cracker field of eight dogs that have come via last week’s heats.

Boasting the fastest personal best time and coming off six straight wins Red Rocket is our favourite to win the Brisbane Cup – get them at the best odds through Luxbet!

One of the top fancies in the field, Red Rocket, has drawn awkwardly with box four however the brilliant young dog has won both of their race starts wearing the blue so is still a live chance.

Boasting the fastest personal best time, the Selena Zammit-trained Red Rocket is coming off six consecutive wins including three straight at the Albion track.

Son of boom sire Surf Lorian, Red Rocket is just 29 months of age but is in red hot form with recent victories in the Corporate $$$ Challenge, Brisbane Young Guns and last week’s Brisbane Cup heat victory and is our top pick to win the Brisbane Cup.

Beaten by Red Rocket in the heats, the reigning Queensland State Sprint Champion Blazing Chaos is another genuine chance on Thursday night after drawing well with box three.

The other favourite for the Brisbane Cup is the Tony Brett-trained Octane Show in box five, who will have benefited from their first look at the Albion track winning their heat here last week.

Coming off three consecutive wins, Octane Show is a fast beginner and a veteran with over 64 race stars to their name.

Octane Show and He Knows Uno are our two best Place picks – try them in a Trifecta with Red Rocket at a great price though Luxbet

Unfortunately the yellow rug has not been a favourable position for the son of Pure Octane who is yet to win from their 11 box five starts.

The other main danger in the Brisbane Cup field this year is emerging sprint star He Knows Uno, drawn well in box eight and boasting an impressive recent record including a gallant second to Red Rocket in the Corporate $$$ Challenge at Ipswich.

Michael Patterson’s Primo Uno dog has a good record in Brisbane and is yet to finish out of the money wearing the pink rug.

The 2010 Sky Racing Brisbane Cup is scheduled to run as Race 8 at Albion Park’s bumper 10-event card on Thursday night, due to jump at 9:11pm (local QLD time).
