The Linda Britton-prepared chaser ended a nine-race losing streak in 22.49sec and landed an inside draw for the final.

Joining Sadie’s Guess from the Britton kennels is highly rated dual group-race winner TeAmo.

In her second run back from injury, TeAmo looked sharp and led all the way to cross the line nearly two lengths ahead in 22.74sec.

Birthday Cup winner Special Pup, booked a place in the final when he ran 22.56sec in his heat.

The John Graham-prepared black dog pulled a lemon box, drawing box five in the final.

Haka Rhythm came from a long way back to score a narrow victory over Rapido Kid in 22.90sec and earn a place in the final.

From the pole, Haka Rhythm deserves respect in the final, despite lacking the early pace to exploit the rails alley.

Last Day is another notable winner ” the blue brindle from Christine Robartson’s kennels overcame a wide draw to win by more than two lengths in 22.71sec.
