The son of Collide and Ricky’s Angel has missed a place just twice in his last 19 starts, including 11 wins and three at The Meadows in 29.84, 29.89 and 29.98.
Trained by Darren McDonald, the white and black chaser has loads of early speed and looks the greyhound to beat in the $15,000-to-the-winner final.
His main dangers appear to be from the Graeme Bate kennel, with National Sprint placegetter and Topgun finalist Allen Hertz and Group 1 Maturity winner Shereen Bale also favoured by the box draw.
The Radio Sport National Silver Bullet will be followed by the Group 2 City of Hume Cup (race eight), worth $40,000 to the winning middle-distance star.
Monday’s meeting is one of the more popular nights at The Meadows. Along with the great racing on show, patrons will have the chance to win one of ten children’s bikes and a 40-inch television, all the while enjoying great entertainment provided by Camp Australia.
