Due to insufficient nominations for a minimum of two heats, the G-SIX K9 Race Recovery FFA (600 m) will now be run as a one-off final at Sunday week’s meeting (October 27).
But this Sunday’s G-SIX Rock’s Retreat FFA (600 m) looks likely to be a keenly-contested affair and a good lead-in to the final – the majority of the runners likely to be re-nominated.
Only 3½ lengths separated Saint David, Spring Spinner, Bisenti and Spinning Jakit who filled the first four placings in last week’s 600 metre Winmore Greyhound Kennels Stake, Saint David running a smart 35.16 seconds for Koroit owner-trainer Peter Byrne.
The quartet will clash again on Sunday but will also have to contend with Banjo Fozz who impressed on debut a fortnight ago over 600 metres for Serviceton trainer David Brodhurst when running second to Unique Edition.
On that occasion Banjo Fozz ran Unique Edition to 2¼ lengths, the winner clocking a quick 35.00 seconds and subsequently winning at Angle Park over 600 metres on Adelaide Cup night.
Trainers are reminded that original nominators for the K9 Race Recovery FFA will be given first preference for the one-off final but will have to re-nominate by 9 a.m. (SA time) on Tuesday, October 22 with GRSA.
