Ace trap helps Sam I Am

The Greyhound intermediate graded sprinters will once again kick start the Wanganui Quaddie at the Hatrick raceway this evening.

Race 9 is 7.40pm.

Realistically it is a field job to get under way, such is the wide open nature of this sprint.

Riba Lord draws kindly in the one-trap, Opawa Thorn could swoop around the outer, the locally trained Ode To Liberty owns a handy winning time over this dash, while the bolter could be Homebush Hayley the out of form downgrading open class sprinter.

Securing the ace trap draw in the open class 520m event presents Sam I Am with sound winning second leg claims.

As expected, Ooh La Cool proved too swift from that trap last Friday and she has drawn well enough here to serve up a repeat dose.

The talented Kerobokan has drawn inside out for his racing style, but it would be foolhardy to ignore his prospects here.

And keep the stayer Buddy Broke safe here. Nothing will be finishing stronger than this bloke.

If the northern sprinter Kissin' Kate correctly picks the jump from her kind draw in the third leg then she should prove too swift for her opponents.

Flag Waver is a fresh-up sprinter here and a competitive effort can be expected. Again, Ciao For Now draws poorly but his experience cannot be ignored, while consider Freddie Baxter as the boilover contender here.

Visionary Man has proved too strong in his latest assignments and similar could occur in the last this evening.

Howlin' Wind was luckless in Palmerston North on Monday don't risk him here. Rosemore Osti is in solid current sprint form while the claims that the inside drawn pair of Cawbourne Madz and Jumpin' Julia can't be overlooked here.

Nine greyhounds from the Foxton-based Paul Freeman and Angela Turnwald kennels normally sighted in Friday evening Hatrick greyhound racing action have been absent lately.

This is owing to campaigning in the $100,000 Buy Sell & Exchange Cup and the $30,000 Super Pet Sprint series in Christchurch.

All of them contested semifinals for both Group races at the Addington Raceway on Wednesday, however only two of the Galaxy sprinters made it through the cut-throat semifinals.

Guru Goose delivered a strong sprint to win his semifinals in 17.22 seconds, while Tiz Now was a gallant second in the fastest of the four 295m semifinals.

Both sprinters will now contest the rich sprint final during the New Zealand Cup meeting back at Addington next Thursday evening.
