Falcon’s Fury, trained by Paul Braddon at Cowra, has drawn box one for the $4000-to-the-winner race after running second in his heat one week ago.
He was beaten to the rail that race and ended up three wide in the straight, however a late burst secured Falcon’s Fury’s place in the decider in what was the quickest heat on the night.
“If Falcon jumps well and leads it could be all over,” Dubbo Greyhound Racing president Shayne Stiff said.
His record at the track is imposing, having notched six wins and two seconds from eight starts.
Paul Braddon and his wife Pamela could find Friday’s nights journey to Dubbo a rewarding one, with a trio of Falcon’s Fury’s kennelmates also lining up in the Mayors Cup Final.
Just Magic, Spring Jazz and Little Cindy negotiated their respective heats.
All have multiple victories under their belts from previous starts at Dawson Park.
Falcon’s Fury, though, looms as the one to beat having chalked up an incredible record of 20 wins from 36 starts, including more than $100,000 prizemoney.
The winner of multiple bush Cups is likely to start favourite in box one, while the Raymond Smith-trained Midnight Treat, who ousted Falcon’s Fury in the heats, may cause another upset.
“Midnight Treat will run a big race and Falcon had a long time off so he’s still finding he’s way back but he’s the one to beat,” Stiff said.
Victory would be his first feature since the Dubbo Gold Cup in April. He’s also won the Cowra John McDonald Memorial, the Bathurst Gold Cup and the Bulli Cyril Rowe Cup.
Racing starts at Dawson Park from 7.21pm on Friday night with the Mayor’s Cup Final the sixth race on the card at 9.05pm.
