GREYHOUNDS: Zodiac Zeus to thunder home
Zodiac Zeus, one of the six winners highlighted in this column last week, can continue his good form in tonight’s final of the £1,000 Blanchford Building Supplies Oxf-ordshire Stakes final.
Zeus, who overcame a crowded start in the quaifiers before holding off a determined challenge from Warning Sign, can repeat the dose tonight for Hove handler Norah McEllistrim.
Glenbane Air should prove the best of Swindon trainer Kevin Hutton’s duo – he also tracks Oxford favourite Kilmalady Biffo.
However, Ballymac Eat has good form round here and is a danger to all.
The heats of the ‘£1,000 to the winner Cesarewitch’ staying event over 645 metres adds to the glamour of tonight’s card which features eight open races on the rare all-trophy 12-race card.
Mays Millhouse, no stranger to the open scene here, will go well for Greg Balantine (Hall Green) while Kevin Hutton’s Five Alley Pub, owned locally by Mick Freshwater, will make his presence felt.
The Richard Yeates-trained Tipp Are Back looks the pick in the Everbuild Cup following a good trial on Monday, while former trainer Paddy Curtin can clean upwith Droopys Betson in the Garris Brushes Trophy over 450 metres.
