Defending champion Tornado Tears has opened the $1.65 favourite with tab.com.au despite drawing box 6 in the $250,000 RSN Sandown Cup.
Trainer Rob Britton was disappointed with the draw however he is confident that ‘Batman’ is in good order ahead of Friday night’s final, which is the world’s richest race for stayers.
“You take what you get, you can’t change anything,” said Britton.
“I was concerned he might have pulled up a bit flat, but I’m really happy with him.”
Tornado Tears won the Cup from box 7 last year and Britton believes he’s racing just as well this time around.
“At his best and with a clear run he can still run the same time as last year, (but) you’ve got the best greyhounds in Australia in the race, it doesn’t matter who you are you need that luck going into the first turn.”
Ella Enchanted and Bago Bye Bye are the only other runners in single figure odds at $3.80 and $4.40 respectively.
Just being on-course this Friday night you have a chance to share in more than $100,000 in prizes. Entry is free – click here for dining information.
