Heat two we see a clash of young titans in the likes of Billy The Sid, Things Missing, David Bale and Durbidge all who have brilliant speed.

David Bale from the Bate Kennels is a very fast greyhound has won eleven races at City tracks will also be racing for the first time at Bulli.
The Mark Gatt trained Things Missing is drawn perfectly in box eight will be the hardest to beat and if he can reproduce his best time of 26.08 , the other thing in his favour is that Things Missing has won his only two starts from Box eight.
The third heat Bate has Imry Bale and Allen Elroy engaged with youngster Imry Bale in box One with impressive Melbourne form winning 14 from twenty starts with ten of those wins at city tracks whilst Allen Elroy is no slouch winning ten races at city track in fast times.
Ritza Ryder (Mark Gatt) and Benchmark (Jason Magri) and the much travelled Compacto (Judith Risk) are strong chances to make the final.
