Brisbane Cup heats update

Australia’s boom greyhound Bekim Bale is quick enough to break the take Albion Park track record.

That is the opinion of Tom Dailly, husband of wife Andrea, going in to the five heats of the of the Group 1 $107,500 Brisbane Cup (520m) tonight.

“He is the fastest dog we’ve ever had in our kennel,” Dailly said.

“I believe, given a clear run without trouble, he could run at least 29.50 or 29.60 at Albion Park.”

The Albion Park track record of 29.57 sec is held by Made To Size.

Bekim Bale is the first and only dog who has broken 29 sec at Sandown Park – he had no luck in the Melbourne Cup.

Bekim Bale has box three (heat 2, 8.08pm) and needs to win or one of the three fastest runner ups to qualify for next week’s final.

He is coming into the Queensland assignment having not trialled or raced at the track.

Albion Park has been the downfall of many well performed southerners but the track watchers agree that the track will suit Bekim Bale’s powerhouse type performances.

In truth the track suits dogs with a degree of toughness as well as speed.

It is the reason Dailly isn’t as bullish about his Melbourne Cup winner Dyna Tron who will contest the fifth heat from box four.

No one doubts the speed of Dyna Tron but prior to the Melbourne Cup victory Dailly believed he was better suited to the 450m tracks, the type which saw him win the  Geelong Cup.

While Dailly has brought the big gun to Brisbane, Graeme Bate has bigger numners with Radley Bale, Allen Lawson (Heat 1), Numero Uno Bale (Heat 2), Tonneli Bale (Heat 3), Shereen Bale (Heat 4), Allen Hertz (Heat 5).

Radley Bale (failed three occasions), Tonneli Bale (won in 30.17 from two starts), Allen Hertz (third in National Sprint Final to Metz Magic running equivalent to 30.20)

The Bate dogs haven’t trialled at Albion Park either but some have raced at the track previously with varied degree.

The locals are hoping that He Know’s Uno or Metz Magic, or push comes to shove pseudo Queenslander Cold Fusion (Northern NSW) can hold the fort.

They could be ably backed up by by Iso Octane, Matilda’s Charm, Bogie King, Isadel,  Citi Hawk and Glen Gallon.

There are three scratchings from the Cup heats but none of them have dented the strength of the series.
