The son of 2004 Australian Greyhound of the Year, Whisky Assassin and Hot Treasure, who will turn the ripe old age of five in a month’s time, won in a slick 29.81 last start, within a length of his best time of 29.77 which he ran over a year ago.
The victory was his 14th in a 48 start career which has seen him bank over $25,000 for owner trainer Jody Manuel.
Despite coming up with the coveted rails ally, where he has only missed a place once in 10 starts, today won’t be a walk in the park for Chevy Assassin as he classes with last start Wentworth Park winner Winston Express, the talented Teriv and recent Gardens winner Zaccary Right.
The form analyst is full of praise Chevy Assassin and his connections, making the veteran chaser the best bet of the meeting, saying;
“The old fella CHEVY ASSASSIN (1) is a tribute to himself & his trainer, racing just as well as ever rising 5 years of age, ideally drawn on the rails to lead & run his rivals ragged, the one to beat.”
The best value of the meeting is Vane Uno in race five, the Allpro Middle Distance Series Final over 600 metres.
“VANE UNO (7) was beaten at her first crack over the distance last start & will be much better suited in this, safe beginner with early speed, hard to beat.”
