Greyhound ratings: Cuba's Olympic gold no surprise.

Byline: Peter Meldum

Cuba sprang a bit of a surprise when taking the Category Two Olympic at Hove. Not that Brian Clemenson's charge doesn't have pace - he has it in abundance. It's just that his tardiness at the traps is often his undoing.

However, on this occasion he overcame early crowding to gain a clear run at the pace-setting Pottos Knows and was always going to prove too strong for David Mullins' dog.

This was his 11th career win for Cuba and, in posting 29.93sec for the 515-metre course, he picked up a rating of 92.
