Greyhound preview: Miss Elly Mint will be a warm favourite
Bring 'em on! That's the call of champion New South Wales bitch Miss Elly Mint following her record breaking win over 400 metres at Gosford on Tuesday night.
Miss Elly Mint stopped the clock at 22.66 adding another chapter to her impressive biography which includes a run of 16 straight wins.
The call to the best dogs in the land to take her on has been accepted and Wentworth Park will play host to the elite as they chase through ten Heats of the $150,000 One Nice Products Golden Easter Egg this Saturday night.
On her home turf Miss Elly Mint will go out a short priced favourite from box 6 in Heat 6 at 9.12 p.m.
She meets Fedex, fresh from Cannington where he finished 4th to Miss Slick in last weeks Perth Cup. It is a clash that highlights a top program featuring the best sprinters Australia has to offer.
In fact the nights show gets off to a bottler of a start for punters with Mantra Lad jumping from the cherry in race 1 at 7.28 p.m.
Another local bitch in great form is the Doreen Dryden trained Eluthra. She's won her last 4 at Wenty Park including a sizzling 30.44 win last Saturday night. She looks a good bet in the fourth Heat.
Velocette and El Galo square off in Heat 7 in what is a real battle of the heavyweights. El Galo has kept himself up to the mark with a couple of nice wins at The Meadows and Sandown while the 'travelling greyhound road show', starring Velocette, skipped across the Nullarbor to Perth.
Miss Slick and Trew Millions finished one-two in last weeks Perth Cup and it hasn't taken long for a rematch to eventuate. The pair will battle again in Heat 8 at 9.57 p.m.
Finish the night on a winning note by supporting Tian Hao Lee in 10th Heat. He's drawn 3 and has the box speed to lead all the way.
The Golden Easter Egg brings together the best of the best and for punters on Betfair it can provide sensational opportunities. A time to reap some nice rewards and be cashed up for Easter 2009.
