Keith Pedrana’s Slick Lee will look to make it back to back Betfair Cup titles in next week’s Group 3 720 metre final after finishing third in tonight’s heats at Wentworth Park.

The staying event which leads into the Association Cup on March 31, attracted a high calibre of greyhound including Adelle Bale from the formidable Andrea Dailly kennels.

It was however NSW’s Gail Allen and He’s My Future which won their respective heats in tonight’s qualifiers.

Next week’s, March 17 final will see the winner pocket $25,000 and position themselves well heading into the Group 1 Association Cup.
