The running of the $450,000 Australian Cup Final and the $150,000 Fanta Bale Super Stayers Series Final from The Meadows on Saturday night has the BetDeluxe greyhound team licking its lips.
The best of the night comes up in the Australian Cup with Andrea Dailly possessing an armoury of runners.
The Meadows race 4
#5 mepunga mustang
Mepunga Mustang is one of the fastest dogs in Victoria at the moment and he is trained by champion trainer Jeffrey Britton.
This chaser has scorched his way through the country-racing scene and rocketed into contention for the Country Championship Final with a jet-propelled 25.08 victory at Ballarat last start.
He won by nearly seven lengths as the $1.40 in that race and is every chance of repeating the dose here.
With clear running in the early stages it will just be a matter of how far.
Suggested Bet: Mepunga Mustang win at $2.15
Suggested Exotic: Exacta 5 & 2
The Meadows race 6
#4 mepunga ruby
Another Jeffrey Britton-trained chaser makes the cut for the BetDeluxe preview, this time in the form of Mepunga Ruby.
As far as heat wins are concerned for this Fanta Bale Super Stayers Final, there were none better than what this star two-year-old bitch produced last week.
She took over in the middle stages of her heat last Saturday and powered to the line to win in a time of 42.45 and, in doing so, smashed her rivals by just over three lengths.
She has panels on her opposition here and will just need luck from the middle box to be winning again.
Deserves her crack at a big final race and she is no better form to make it count than on Saturday night.
If the odds-on do not excite you, take an exotic with Overflow Lisa who finished second behind Mepunga Ruby last start.
Suggested Bet: Mepunga Ruby win at $1.60
Suggested Exotic: Exacta 4 & 1
The Meadows race 8
#3 zippy tesla
At the moment, Aston Rupee is the favourite for the Australian Cup, but he will need a scratching to get a run.
With that, we are going to side with Zippy Tesla who was very sharp in her 29.75 heat win last weekend.
She is track and distance specialist at The Meadows with 16 starts over the 525 metres for six wins.
Andrea Dailly has her humming along at a rate of knots and her powerful finishing burst will be hard to hold out.
Making her the best of the night in the best race on the card.
Suggested Bet: Zippy Tesla win at $3.6
the meadows race 9
#4 osprey rose
Osprey Rose looks well placed to take out this race after a strong showing at Ballarat last start.
She got squeezed up the start of her race, but held her ground well to the line to finish fourth and she races on the three-day back up here, which shows us she has plenty more to give.
This is arguably one of her favourite tracks having run a very quick personal best of 29.94 over the 525 metres.
Getting up in distance to this range should see her find a spot much handier to the leaders, or even in the lead, against more dour opposition than she has been facing in recent times.
She will be mighty hard to beat if she runs anywhere near that personal best time of sub-30 seconds.
Suggested Bet: Osprey Rose win at $3.3
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 1, 4, 6
