Upset brewing in Brisbane Cup
Considering Bekim Bale’s popularity, it’s likely he will start at a much shorter quote...
For our respected greyhound man in the know, the Form Hound, Australia's most promising chaser Bekim Bale remains the greyhound to beat in tonight's Brisbane Cup at Albion Park, but an awkward box draw has created the real possibility of an upset in the group one race.
The Form Hound rates Bekim Bale very highly, but the dog's victory chances could be determined at box rise.
With this in mind, Bekim Bale just needs to not get touched in the run to first turn. The Form Hound has assessed the Andrea Dailly-trained runner at $5.80 for tonight's group one.
Considering Bekim Bale's popularity, it's likely he will start at a much shorter quote, thus tempting Betfair players to take their chances and lay the emerging star of the sport.
The Form Hound has assessed his top four chances between $4.30 and $5.80 with his top selection likely to go off at a nice each-way quote.
The Form Hound's rundown on Brisbane Cup entrants:
DYNA TRON - Melbourne Cup winner who is ideally boxed. Did a lot wrong last week but still won.
SPRING GUN - Flying beginner capable of winning if Dyna Tron hits trouble.
GLEN GALLON - Will need a lot of luck and a clear run. Bolter for multi's.
RADICAL DOS - Good winner Monday night but will find this harder.
BEKIM BALE - One of the strongest dogs in the land, just needs to not get touched in the run to first turn.
RADLEY BALE - Classy dog but horribly drawn. Good enough to win but will need a lot of luck at the start.
HE KNOWS UNO - Slow beginner who gets back and looks out of his depth here.
MERCY RULE - Been a good dog for connections and will start huge odds. Simply outclassed.
