Nitro boost a danger at park

A BIG day is planned at Border Park Raceway this afternoon, with a nine race-program including the final of the Maiden in Race 3.

Marville Lad, from the one box, will face a challenge from Nitro Boost, which he beat by just a half length in the heat. That was Nitro Boost's first start at Tweed and only its second start in a race, and it will be better for the experience. With Leigh McHugh as a trainer, it will be thereabouts at the finish.

Race 1 is heat one of the Maiden and the Richie Wisener-trained Happy Attitude looks good over Bond Beauty and Thournton Girl.

Race 2 is heat two of the Maiden, and Roseberry Rebel should get the better of Midnight Grace and Mooball Sam in a hard race.

In Race 4, heat one of the Benny's Toll Novice, keep an eye on Mentalist, who is having its first start at this track for Steve Board. With seven placings out of eight starts, this must be a handy greyhound. Look for Killer Spirit to run second over Super Cruise.

Race five is heat two of the Benny's Toll and Farmers Bond should return to the winning list over Massive Tide and Dan Patch, with Run Limmo Run the one to beat in the next heat. This dog ran a good second in Brisbane on Tuesday night and I think it can go one better today over Stone Queen and Cagney.

Hallucinator will keep winning in Race 9, the final heat, from Oxley County and Miss Shooter. - STEPHEN McGRATH
