The box draw for the $600,000 2014 Melbourne Cup Final has been conducted at Sandown, with Keybow drawing the coveted red box.
Keybow will not have all the running to himself early though as there will be plenty of pace coming from the outside boxes, with speedsters Star Recall and Luca Neveelk drawing beside each other in boxes six and seven.
Chica Destacada has also drawn very well in box two for Doreen Drynan.
Fatest Melbourne Cup heat winner Dyna Villa has drawn well out in the extreme outside draw in the pink rug. A repeat performance of his equal best of night 5.00 first sectional could see the Jenny Hunt trained son of Collision off and gone on the first corner.
Australian Racing Greyhound expect Keybow to start the clear favourite for the final in fixed odds markets. Be sure to check out the different promotions and free bets being conducted on greyhound racing’s night of nights.
