68 SPORT SUNDAY NOVEMBER 5 2017 NTNE01Z01MA - V1 Lots of Mayhem tipped in Battle of Sexes THE greyhounds return to Winnellie Park tonight highlighted by the final of the UBET Battle of the Sexes Series. The flying Arnhem Mayhem (Jamie Hosking) from box eight is the one to beat in the pursuit for glory, although Greg Milne will be confident from box one that his charge Summer Sprite will run a huge race. The consistent Stoker Up (Hans Spykers), Macaloney (Graeme Ferns) and Arnhem Chaos (Hosking) cannot be discounted. Blue Vain Boy (Spykers) looks the best chance in race one, while Sublime Countess has been racing well for Chris Blackman and is drawn to run well in race two. Jamie Hoskings Im Late will be hard to beat in race three, while Nick Day may have found the trick with his charge Gardot, who is set to run a bold race in race four. Lochinvar Style (Steele Bolton) has been drawn into box eight and will take holding out in race five. Leta Smith will fancy her chances in race seven with Elite Falcon, with Gossip Park (Peter Donnolley) the best bet in race eight. Best mates, trainer Richard Carr and owner Simon Nathanael, race Super Roundboy and from box one and going on recent outings, will take holding out in race nine. Carol Pickard has Lochielle travelling well and no doubt can run a big race in race 10, while Arnhem Invader (Hosking) and Arabian Sheriff (Joel Vansleve) from the outside boxes appear the main players in the final race of the night. The first race is at 6.21pm, with the last scheduled for 9.31pm. SOUTHERN Districts threw any doubt on their premiership favouritism out of the NTFL top-five window last night when they thrashed a disappointing Darwin Buffaloes side at league headquarters. The Crocodiles started in first gear against a Buffalo side trying to snap a two-game losing streak, but soon moved through the transmission to take total control of the match. A constant supply of football from the middle, superb use of the football against a dispirited opposition and several goalscoring options all Ugle, who made TIO Stadium his own last night with a quiet, but authoritative show of class. Unbelievable player, he kicks the ball beautifully, his vision is impeccable and hes a real talent, Rusca said. It was a real team effort against a good footy side Callum Currie looks for an opening as he secures possession of the football for Southern Districts during yesterdays one-sided NTFL Premier League clash against the Darwin Buffaloes at TIO Stadium. Inset: Darwin Buffaloes Campbell Wurramarrba loses control of the football as he crashes to the turf Pictures: JUSTIN KENNEDY Rampaging Crocodiles bring down Buffaloes contributed to the 19.17 (131) to 2.6 (18) win. That was after the Buffaloes kicked the first goal through Hassan AhMat-Watkins and held Districts scoreless for the first 10 minutes of the game. But when Keegan Dingo grabbed two strong marks and converted them into goals, the Crocodile roadshow moved into top gear. Gerald Ugle showed the class Perth fans have seen for the past three seasons, two of them culminating in premierships with WAFL club Peel Thunder. Districts coach Shannon Rusca had plenty of praise for despite what the score might indicate. They made seven quality changes and we came here with a mindset they were going to come at us and we had to make sure we were ready. Spearhead Will Farrer booted eight goals that could have been 10 and Sam Smith in defence was impassable. The Buffaloes finished with 19 fit men on what was a disastrous night for them. First-year coach Matt Campbell has some work to do in instilling some confidence and consistency into a side that is a lot better than the one everyone saw last night.
