  • Pre Post Odds : $7

Comment : Lightly raced local with very good form looked impressive last week leading all the way from an outside draw. Beat some handy types in a personal best of 30.22 and appears a dog with a solid future has won four on the track in succession. Each way chance from box one in good hands.

Comment : Local sprint star and 2008 WA Greyhound of the Year finalist some think unlucky not to be wearing the crown. Fantastic record at Cannington with 24 wins came from behind last week to record another polished performance. Needed an inside draw and has got it enhancing her chances the main local hope is certainly a big show.

  • Best Time : 30.51

Comment : Victorian sprint star and a dog that has made a lot of finals without winning. Raced well last week and is capable of an upset it things went his way. Drawn okay just needs to begin as well as he can to be a chance. Always thereabouts place looks best.

  • Best Time : 30.56
  • Pre Post Odds : $51

Comment : Honest local sprinter with a heap of experience at Cannington. 40 starts for 10 wins just kept going last week when she upset the pre-post favourite Velocette. Time needs to be smarter if she is to trouble this lot from box four. Place chance with luck.

  • Sex : Dog
  • Colour : Red Fawn
  • Owner/s : Martin & Fiona Hallinan

  • Cannington 530m Record : 2 Starts – 2 wins – 0 seconds – 0 thirds
  • Best Time : 29.95
  • Pre Post Odds : $2

Comment : Very versatile sprinter and stayer from Victoria he has scored group wins over both distances. Has never raced better than in his two wins in the West. Overcame box four twice for two outstanding wins last weeks a best of the night lightening fast 29.95. Will start a short priced quote and disserves the mantle is certainly the one to beat if he begins clean and has a little bit of luck will be hard to hold out.

Joanne Monelli

  • Breeding : Premier Fantasy ~ Foolish Girl
  • Whelped : December 2006
  • Sex : Bitch
  • Colour : Black
  • Owner/s : Mike Quinsee
  • Trainer : Dave Hobby
  • Race Record : 32 Starts – 11 wins – 7 seconds – 6 thirds
  • Prizemoney : $53,340
  • Cannington 530m Record : 26 Starts – 8 wins – 6 seconds – 4 thirds
  • Best Time : 30.22
  • Pre Post Odds : $21

Comment : Smart local sprinter with eight Cannington wins to her credit, held on well to cause a minor boilover in her heat when she downed several more fancied interstate visitors. Will need a few things to go her way from box six and will start nice odds to win the final. Might just be out of her class but did a good job in the heat to record a personal best 30.22. Place chance best.

Drink Driver

  • Whelped : January 2006
  • Sex : Dog
  • Colour : Black
  • Owner/s : Robert Sims
  • Trainer : Rob Harnas

  • Prizemoney : $37,555
  • Cannington 530m Record : 1 Starts – 1 wins – 0 seconds – 0 thirds
  • Best Time : 30.32
  • Pre Post Odds : $8

Comment : South Australian campaigner who did a good job in the heat to win in 30.32. Showed he has some ability and will be better for another run on the track. Won’t want to get into any trouble early as it certainly will harm his chances from this outside draw honest type will be nice odds.

Heart Of Buderus

  • Whelped : February 2007
  • Sex : Dog
  • Colour : Black & White
  • Owner/s : Jeff Schrull

  • Cannington 530m Record : 3 Starts – 1 wins – 1 seconds – 0 thirds
  • Best Time : 30.44
  • Pre Post Odds : $34

Comment : Has raced well since coming to the West and joining the powerful Iwanyk kennel. Handy type in his home state of New South Wales and perhaps needs to improve on his best winning time of 30.44. With a bit luck in running could finish in the placings.

Turanza Bale

  • Whelped : July 2006

  • Best Time : 30.27
  • Pre Post Odds : $33

Comment : Victorian sprinter that finished second last week to Mantra Lad would have some claims if he gains a start.
