2011 Brisbane Cup – heat sections and betting

What last week’s heats of the Group 1 $107,500 Brisbane Cup (520m) showed was there is not a lot between the finalists.

While Spring Gun ran the quickest in 29.98 sec, only one hundredth of a second separated three other heat winners Radley Bale, Glen Gallon and Dyna Tron in the 2011 Brisbane Cup.

TABsportsbet have Dyna Tron and Bekim Bale equal favourites at $2.75 for the final.

This is despite Bekim Bale running the slowest heat in the 2011 Brisbane Cup.

There were genuine excuses for that performance.

Namely he was having his first look at Albion Park and suffered interference at the first turn.

Giving leader Mercy Rule at least four lengths coming to the home turn, Bekim Bale mowed that consistent bitch down in the final stride.

Tom Dailly, husband of trainer Andrea, says Bekim Bale is a wide runner and the fact he has drawn five in the final may not be such a disadvantage.

While Dyna Tron ran the quickest first section in the heats, it was Spring Gun who ran the quickest second section.

The fastest final section is harder to gauge as that time is based on the first dog past the marker and not the eventual winners final section time.

However  that honour would surely go to either Bekim Bale or , He Knows Uno.

Both made many lengths in that final section.
