Rambo Banner, arguably the most in-form sprinter on the NSW TAB track circuit, headlines a high-quality card at Goulburn on Tuesday afternoon. The Luke Adams-trained greyhound jumps from box six in race three (350m) – the Black Bear Lee At Stud Stakes – looking to make it five wins in a row.
Rambo Banner recorded his fourth successive, and most emphatic win, at Maitland last Thursday.
He led throughout over 400m to win in 22.19, which was only 0.21 outside Winsome Jacko's track record, set nearly three years ago.
Rambo Banner has won 14 of 34 races with his past four victories being in 19.92 over 350m at Goulburn, 22.43 for the Bulli 400m trip, and twice at Maitland.
Adams is not getting carried away and happy to keep Rambo Banner to short-course races.
“I expect he will get stronger because he is just 28 months of age, but for now I will stick to shorter races at the provincials and bring him to town later,” the Tregear trainer said.
Goulburn’s Tuesday card also features four heats of the Goulburn Workers series over the 350m distance, for greyhounds with between one and three wins.
Pheasants Nest trainer Warren Scott has two strong chances in the heats with littermates Rosey’s Fantasy and Lucy’s Fantasy. Rosey’s Fantasy jumps from box six in the first heat (race four) after an impressive win at Canberra in late July. That box eight win extended Rosey’s Fantasy record to two wins from four starts and highlighted her liking for wide draws, so Tuesday’s box six should suit.
Lucy’s Fantasy, jumps from box one in the final heat (race seven). Lucy’s Fantasy has been mixing her form since a maiden win at Goulburn in June, but should benefit from the inside draw and should be very competitive. The top two from each heat will qualify for next Tuesday’s final.
And in other action at Goulburn, Subawa Ngurah can overcome the disappointment of missing out on the lucrative Zoom Top Maiden final with pre-race favourite Nino De Oro last week, with a number of strong winning chances entered in the program.
Alabatross Maide (box seven, race eight) and Triple Twist (box three, race nine) look particularly strong winning chances for the in-form Ngurah kennel.
