Adelaide Cup Final Tips & Previews, Friday 8th October

The tips, preview and runner-by-runner guide to the $145k Adelaide Cup at Angle Park.

The $145k Adelaide Cup will be run and won on Friday night with some of the best greyhounds in the country to chase home a big prize pool. 

The BetDeluxe team has gone through the runner-by-runner guide to find the best bets and winner of the race. 

#1 Major Major

Troy Murray

Won his heat of the Adelaide Cup stylishly after sitting second for the majority of the race and powering home to finish over the top to win in a team of 30.48.

That run was just shy of his personal best at the Angle Park 530-metre circuit and he would need to lift a fair bit to be considered a winning hope here.

Box one does present him with the chance to score up and take the easy way home, but he will have trouble if dogs from out wide cross him.  

Odds: $9 the win and $2.2 the place
Finishing position: Fourth

#2 Do It

Jeffrey Britton

Jeffrey Britton dogs are never to be taken lightly in big grand-final events.

Do It had to do it the hard way last start when being crossed before the first corner and having to chase down his rivals. 

He showed great fight to reel in the leaders and ended up winning in a time 30.36. 

Expect some sort of improvement to come with that being his first ever run at the track. 

Anything akin to that heat effort will see him competitive in this race, however he will not be good enough to win or get close to the favourite. 

Odds: Do It $8.5 the win and $2.15 the place.
Finishing Position: Third

#4 Weblec Blazer

Angela Langton

Ran the second best time in the heats and is the main danger to the favourite.

Draws the same box as he did last week when slicing his way through the field to win in slashing time of 30.15. 

He is the dog, on paper and times, who can get within two lengths of the favourite in this Adelaide Cup. 

The only query on him is by the time he gets out of the ruck, should he not step away with great speed, the bird might have already flown. 

Still expecting him to run a huge race and is a monty for second spot if he repeats what he did last start. 

Odds: $5.5 the win and $1.6 the place.
Finishing position: Second

#5 Came and went

troy murray

Middle box will be of no concern if he can show the blistering acceleration he produced when winning his heat to qualify.

He scooted to the front and held all his challengers at bay to win in 30.33.

Will probably need a few dogs to get checked and fall over if he is chance to hold on here. 

Making your own luck can often be of great fortune in these races, but Aston Rupee will be hunting him down.  

Odds: $11 the win and $2.5 the place
Finishing position: Fifth

#6 Spring Lilac

Vadim Roz

Box six probably rules her out as a chance in this race. 

She landed on the rail last start when everything went her way from box three and will need more than lady luck to over the line here. 

Not in the same stratosphere as a few of these other chaser. 

Odds: $17 the win and $3.5 the place. 
Finishing position: Last

#7 Jack's Well

Cameron Butcher

Should be favoured by the wide draw as he was last start when winning. 

To the eye, the win looked like it would be competitive in this race, but the clock says otherwise. 

He could only muster up a winning time of 30.36 which will not be good enough to win. 

Odds: $12 the win and $2.6 the place. 
Finishing position: Sixth

#8 Aston Rupee

Glenn Rounds

The most gifted and talented chaser in the field who annihilated the clock his heat win last week.

Victorian based trainer Glenn Rounds has him going great guns at the moment and the 29.95 time to qualify for this final was an Angle Park track record and simply had to be seen to be believed. 

Does not matter what box he draws, the speed and muster he shows when the lids open up is jaw-droppingly spectacular. 

If he finds the lead into the first bend, as expected, it will be a matter of how far he wins by and whether or not he can usurp his track record. 

Odds: $1.80
Finishing position: First

#9 Mr Fix It (Box Three)

Jeffrey Britton

Gains a start with the scratching of Keep it Black and will jump from box three. 

He will show great speed from box three, as he did his runner-up effort behind Weblec Blazer. 

The problem for him is the last 50 metres. 

Tough to see him finishing top four. 

Odds: $11 the win and $2.5 the place.
Finishing position: Seventh
