2011 Ballarat Cup box draw – heat times

The Jamie Ennis-trained Cape Hawke stamped his authority on next Wednesday’s Group 2 2011 Ballarat Cup (450M) with the fastest heat time last night.

A winner of 11 of 18 starts, Cape Hawke jumped out of box four and ran 25.17 sec, clearly the fastest time.

It was his second visit to Ballarat,  his first in August resulting in a 25.67 sec win.

That night he missed the start and worked through the field.

Last night he bounced straight to the lead and gave nothing else a hope.

His time was the equivalent to three lengths quicker than the next best heat winner.

That honour went to Marmion in 25.35 sec.

Most of the other heats winners clocked in around the 25.40s.

Cape Hawke has drawn box eight in the final.

The son of Where’s Pedro is yet to win out of the pink.

He has had two starts from the box at Sandown Park.

The first time he bombed the start.

The most recently time he did well when third to Enry Walt in 29.41 sec when beaten 3-1/2 lengths.

 Andrea Dailly took training honours by preparing three of the eight heat winners – Bala Bale, Lektra Express and Dyna Steal.

The most eye-catching performance of the night belonged to Mungo Man.

Trained by a legend of the sport and Greyhound Racing Victoria Hall of Famer Allan Britton, Mungo Man came from the rear of the field to win his heat in the solid time of 25.44sec.

He is not the greatest beginner at any time and has drawn poorly in box five in the final.

The speedy Bala Bale looks nicely drawn in two.
