Huge night ahead in Victoria with the running of the Geelong Cup series. With 8 heats and a seriously talented line up, racing will be no doubt at its best there tonight on the G.Bate track.
Albion Park Greyhounds Race 7 Box 1 Taumalolo 8.44pm
I’m not so confident here with this fellow, but he does have a good record from box 1 and I hear that he’s ready to go. It’s not a hard race but the book ends do look the two runners the rest have to beat. Legend Tycoon is flying at the moment and a few starts back from the pink he stopped the clock in a career best 30.12. So,with no speed drawn inside him, he’ll no doubt get the chance to ping and do the same again. But, our selection is Taumalolo and he to can show speed if he decided to jump. He too has limited early speed on his outside, and if he’s able to ping and get on the bunny from the get go he can win this. He’s out of form, but as I said he does improve from the red. If odds of about $7.00 are on offer I suggest jumping on here, as I’m told an improved performance is on the cards tonight.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 7 Box 6 Kenso Karoo, 8.36pm
Big chance given second up to the flying machine Kenso Karoo. He’s run a blinding 29.79 at Albion park and he only needs to bring half of that form to Angle Park here tonight to flog these. The problem is he’s very unreliable and very inconsistent but the added advantage of the finish on lure here in S.A should bring the best out of him. He ran second here last week, but he now knows he can grab the lure in a race, and I think that may spark him up here in this. Box 5 makes it hard, so don’t take short odds, but he’s a huge chance here in this.
Launceston Greyhounds Race 8 Box 5 Happy Tiger 10.00pm
This fellow isn’t suited by the 500 but he’s classes above these here. His last couple at Sandown were brilliant and he should have no trouble spotting these a few lengths and rounding them up in the straight. It’s a simple as that, he’s too fast, too strong, and too talented to not be a huge threat in this. He’s only had the one go here over the 500 for a 3rd, but he’s in fine form now and only bad luck should beat him. Jodie Valentino should run second if she gets out in clear room.
Geelong Greyhounds Race 4 Box 3 Crump 8.08pm
If ever there was a track built for the flying but awkward Crump, then this is it. Geelong is a big, open and wide track that should see the big black son of Superman find his feet .We all know the motor he possesses, but all to often he finds trouble. His main dangers here tonight will clearly beat him out, but that’s a good thing because he should be able to bounce out and sit in behind the speedy runners early. It’s a super tough race with speed to burn, and no matter how much analysing you do of the race, you won’t figure it out. So based on Crumps huge motor I’ll tip him here and suggest taking the tote odds. Very tough race and many chances.
Best of Luck
