Aeroplane Bob the bookies favourite to win Warrnambool Classic

FOURTEEN heats of the Group 2 Warrnambool Classic (450m) are scheduled to be run across Tuesday (12) and Wednesday (2) this week, with a stack of talent engaged throughout the 2016 series.

Aeroplane Bob is the $8 favourite with Bet365’s all-in market to take out the final on May 4, with the son of Turanza Bale and Ritza Night set to exit box eight in race five, heat one, on Wednesday evening.

Trained by Jason Thompson, the Silver Chief finalist has won eight of his 21 career starts to date including a last start 30.32 win at The Meadows and has subsequently been installed as the $1.50 top pick to win his heat.

Hush Now is on the second line of betting in the all-in markets at $11 for leading Victorian conditioner Brett Bravo. The regally-bred son of Magic Sprite and Midnight Lace comes into the series as the winner of seven races and, despite his poor form at present, is a class chaser on his night.

Sharing the $11 quote is Sausage Sizzle, another from Bravo’s kennel, which clocked a slick 25.10 victory over the track and trip two starts back. The black bitch will have to contend with box five in her heat, but faces a winnable field with the main threats appearing to be Vic For Short (box eight) and Shake The Night (box three).

Both Sausage Sizzle and Hush Now will contest their heats on Tuesday, starting in races five and six respectively.

Three runners currently sit on the $13 quote with Bet365 – Twist Of Thunder, One For Me and Dream Edition.

Twist Of Thunder placed third over the track and trip from box eight at his most recent start but looks much better suited in box two on Tuesday night. The 31 kilogram sprinter is the $1.65 favourite to take out his heat, race 12, which is set to jump at 7:35pm.

Dream Edition is prepared by Angela Langton and will start from box eight in the second heat on Tuesday. The black dog is better drawn on the inside and meets a smart field including Kilty Express ($51 with Bet365.com.au to win the final) and Rob Britton’s Carry On Rose.

One For Me is trained by Langton’s partner Jeff Britton and is a son of Barcia Bale and My Secret Shiraz. He scored in 25.57 over the Warrnambool 450m trip last week all will be out to secure his ninth career win on Wednesday when he exits box three in heat 13.

All up, Britton and Langton have 20 greyhounds contesting the Classic in 2016, some of their notable chances including Dream Ticket ($16), Wise Harvey ($17), Fool’s Gold ($26), Dublin Bull ($26) and Hurry Slowly ($31).

Other greyhounds to watch out for include:

Both Sides Now ($15): This fella is one of the most experienced and best performed greyhounds in the series, with the $15 quote to win the final looking a nice bet. One of Angela Langton’s many chances, the son of Magic Sprite and Cristalle has won 12 of his 36 starts including some slick victories at Sandown Park (29.37), The Meadows (29.78) and Wentworth Park (30.14).

Cactus Jack ($26): Has drawn wide in box seven in heat three on Tuesday and is better than his 25.70 win over the track and trip last start. Has clocked a sizzling 29.91 at The Meadows when winning his maiden and is still learning how to race with just five starts under his belt. Wide box suits and he looks a live chance throughout the series.

Connemara Black ($21): Comes into the series as a slick 25.22 winner at Warrnambool last start and won at Sandown Park in a handy 29.89 two runs ago. Looks likely to progress through to the semi-finals after drawing box three in heat four and is a realistic chance of winning the final from a favourable draw.

Dewana Express ($126): Unraced greyhound so it is hard to tell exactly what he is capable of. Is a younger brother to the brilliant Dewana Result, which placed second in the Classic in 2015, and while it is a risk backing him for the final prior to his first start, it is worth putting a small wager on him at the big odds.

Past Discussion

  1. This is real good but bet365 bet the majority of punters to win $15 on these markets.
    So if I want to back show me bling at $151 I am only allowed to have 10c on them.
    Any thoughts on what I should do to get on ?
