Lord’s pups unleashed

Jodie Lord is unleashing several of her star newcomers at Goulburn today and looks to have some strong winning chances.

Premier Gunning trainer Lord rugs up handy looking pups Unchangeable, Rooster Bush, Unfashionable and Young Thug in four of the eight terrific heats of the Palmerbet Maiden Series over the 440m, with all four looking good things.

Unchangebale (box one, race two) is making his debut but has gone well in performance trials at Goulburn and Canberra and looks perfectly drawn, while Rooster Bush (box five, race three) has also had two impressive PTs at the same tracks.

Unfashionable (box seven, race four) clocked a decent 17.58 over the 297m in recent performance trial at Dapto, while Young Thug (box six, race six) clocked a smart 25.49 over this trip in a recent trial at Goulburn and appears to have ability.

The first three of Lord’s chances are well-bred littermates by Magic Sprite out of Cawbourne Rev and look smart prospects.

Top south-west Sydney trainer Mark Gat has had a string of high-calibre greyhounds over the years and he may have another one on his hands in the shape of Shareef.

The son of Barcia Bale and Socozie (box five, race eight) is making his racing well but clocked a smart 25.34 over this trip in a recent performance trial.

One eye-catching greyhound competing in the series is debutant Twisted Love, who has box two in the day’s second race.

The pup, trained by Canyonleigh’s Ruth Matic, is an impeccably bred daughter of champion Fernando Bale and 2013 NSW Greyhound of the Year Double Twist.

The eight heat winners progress to next Tuesday’s final.

In other Goulburn Tuesday action, Black Pocket (box seven) can score a victory for Jason Magri in the day’s 11th and final race.

Black Pocket is resuming after a month-long spell but has so far clocked some eye-catching victories at country tracks.

Eleven races are on the card and action starts at 11.52am.
