Beckett and Boon Dogs Fight It Out


Byline: Alan Kennedy alan.kennedy@capnews.com.au

GREYHOUNDS: Two Dallas Beckett and two Bill Boon dogs will be looking to fight out the Q Dog, Mixed grade final this afternoon at Callaghan Park.

The race is for the Don Wisener Memorial with last week's three heats giving punters plenty to think about.

Beckett's Palomino was a convincing winner and recorded the best time of the heats.

The reward for that effort is the wide draw on the track, although that should not provide a handicap over the 510 metre course.

If the race is to be decided on the draw then Beckett would still be in with a good chance as his other dog, Tiger Twelve, will come out of the one box.

After some big runs earlier in his career, Tiger Twelve has come back into the pack in recent weeks and only just managed to qualify for the final when placed third behind Cyril Says and Bronze Babe.

However, like Palomino a good run can be expected from Tiger Twelve to justify pre-race favouritism.

Neville Jackson's Bronze Babe might well have been a winner had last week's heat been 10 metres longer as the second part of his race was very impressive.

The two dogs representing Boon will also be in the mix come the finish with Surf Shell, a winner last week, and Son of Macbeth both capable of a place.

Surf Shell's win has not convinced punters of a repeat performance as the winning time was the slowest of the three heats.

Son of Macbeth is currently in a run of third placings after finishing eight lengths behind Palomino.

Only six run in the Best Eight sprint and it would take a brave punter to look further than Jason Feeney's One Stone, Rockhampton's Greyhound of the Year for 2009.

One Stone is not only the fastest dog in this company but has also the advantage of the top draw.

Albert Harker's Maverick Lee looks to be the one to chase One Stone home while Beckett's Pie Guys is a better dog than the two sixth placings shown for his last two races. …
