Veteran chaser Quick Joey Small is set to continue his affiliation with the Mowbray track on Monday night when he starts a red-hot favourite for the Colonial Hotel Middle Distance Championship.
The son of Aston Dee Bee has thrived since stepping up to the staying distance races which he showed again last week clocking 34.68 seconds while trouncing his opposition by almost 10 lengths.
Trainer David Crosswell has added his polish to this black sprinter winning 18 races from 49 starts.
Since August 24, Quick Joey Small has strung together five straight impressive wins.
Bookmakers are expected to have Quick Joey Small at very short odds when markets open on the $3080-to-the-winner final where he will exit from box 4.
He is $1.30 in the Greyhound Recorder's predicted market.
Multiple premiership-winning trainer Anthony Bullock will prepare four of the eight runners in the feature.
Tasmanian Distance Championship winner Dewana Whatever is the leading chance for Bullock having qualified last week behind Quick Joey Small finishing a strong third albeit a long way from the winner.
Buckle Up Kenzie remains in contention, with an inside draw giving her every possible chance.
