The Christine Proctor-trained Perfected is boxed perfectly to take out the feature race – the Erringhi Hotel Rural Cup Final over 450 metres – at Maitland Showground today.
Perfected powered away for a dominant victory from box eight last week – in 25.37 seconds – and a repeat of that effort should deliver once again for the Londonderry trainer.
The white and black dog has had 13 starts for four wins and four placings and clocked 22.82 seconds over 400 metres at Maitland in April.
Maitland Greyhound Club sponsorship and promotions officer Fred Robertson said on that form Perfected is certainly the dog to beat, but he’ll probably be rock-bottom odds.
The biggest threat could come from Harpers Hill trainer Ken Cheetham’s charge Simply Great, which ran third behind Perfected in the heats and will appreciate box eight today.
Robertson likes Margaret Enright’s My Girl Lollypop (box three) and Neville Broadbent’s Son Of Vieri (box four) to be in the mix.
The 10-race program also features four heats of the Cessnock Hotel Mid Winter Cup over 400 metres and two heats of the Betezy Maitland to City over 450 metres.
Robertson’s best bet of the day is the David Smith-trained True Blue Ethics in race four, the first heat of the Mid Winter Cup.
The blue and brindle dog was impressive in his Maitland debut last week, covering the 400 metres in 22.63 seconds – just outside the best time of the night.
True Blue Ethics has had eight starts for four wins and two placings and Robertson believes he can deliver for punters once again.
Robertson likes Brother Sunrise to take out the second heat (race five) of the Mid Winter Cup, Dream Lee to salute in the third heat (race nine) and Platinum to win heat four (race 10).
Kellyville trainer David Righetti – whose sprinter Exclusive One holds the Maitland 450 metre track record – will be keen to continue his good strike rate at Maitland with Hoodlum and Cookie’s Recipe.
Hoodlum is having his first race start in the Erringhi Hotel Clarence Town Maiden over 400 metres, but being from an in-form kennel should see the son of Brett Lee start a short-priced favourite.
Righetti’s other charge, Cookie’s Recipe, is a lightly raced daughter of Knocka Norris and looks the one to beat as she resumes from a spell in race six, the first heat of the Maitland To City over 450 metres.
Robertson likes the Ken Cheetham-trained Galo Galo to win the second heat.
Galo Galo has plenty of ability and needs only a clean getaway to notch up his third Maitland win.
The 10-race programs kicks off at 4.04pm.
