Best bets & tips for Wednesday 2nd August 2017

Wednesday free greyhound racing tips

Brutal start to the tips yesterday with all three of our best bets going under. We did find value around our runners, but that doesn’t amount to much if the don’t get the chocolates. Two things we need to remember as punters is variance will occur at all times, and there is no last race. There’s always another race and another opportunity never far away.

The Meadows Greyhounds

Best Bet: Race 3 Box 1 Hoo Gur Affair – Get the best price at Topbetta’s Global Tote
Hoo Gur Affair (Barcia Bale x Gold Affair Two Dec ’15) boasts a 100% winning strike rate from just his two starts and is ideally placed drawn the rails, as he does step a little to the left from the boxes. Won a maiden heat and final here over this track and distance, and impressed by running competitive time in the final against the other races Maturity Classic final night. Can’t see anything beating him in this, has five lengths on any other runner.

Warrnambool Greyhounds

Best Bet: Race 5 Box 1 Blackpool Alexis – $500 Free Bet at Ladbrokes
Blackpool Alexis (Lochinvar Marlow x Paua And Jewels May ’15) has won four of 15 starts with two minor placings and looks ideally suited off box one in this race. Has drawn the red twice previously and won on both occasions at Geelong over the 400m. Has had two runs over 460m since then, so strips stronger for this 450m race which looks devoid of early pace outside our selection. Talented coursing greyhound Tally Ho Billy is a brute of a greyhound and from box four is likely to run cover for the favourite as he does like to track wide.

Wentworth Park Greyhounds

Best Bet: Race 6 Box 1 Big Butters – Crownbet deposit $40 bet with $140 offer
Ex-harness trainer Andrew Crouch has two of his talented litter engaged here with both Big Butters(Spring Gun x Dashandy Black Mar ’15) and Exultant facing the starter from boxes one and three respectively. All the money with come for the Dennis Barnes trained Little Nangar from box two, but the 26kg bitch will not have the pace to cross Big Butters to the first corner with all three greyhounds drawn the inside and all three are likely to run 5.50 first sections. Crouch’s greyhound should hold the rail and prevail at value odds.
