Albion Park Greyhounds Race 3 Box 6 Rowdy Yates, 7.26pm
Albion Park was great to us last Thursday, with Ah Gee Lass saluting on the line at $10.00. So, let’s hope this fellow can get the job done here as well tonight. He won’t be starting at those odds though and is more likely to jump at around $2.40 but he clearly looks the the one they have to beat in a very ordinary race. He’s got great early toe and should be out and in front early on here, however he’s only managed to win the one race out of 13 and that’s a worry. But, he’s well overdue and has a huge amount on time on this field. He’s in form and went well at Ipswich last start, before being run down by a strong runner. With panels on this field, punters can back him with supreme confidence.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 9 Box 8, Betsy Allen,9.18pm
The usual staying race here, but we won’t be seeing the old champ who generally wins each week go around. Kalden Mayhem has been retired and his dominate reign over the S.A staying ranks is over. So, that leaves the title vacant for a new stayer to take over. Betsy Allen isn’t that dog but she is a very talented animal and has won here over the trip in good time. She always races well and generally leads in her races. On top of that, box 8 is perfect for her and she should bounce straight out and take the lead. She’s been racing very consistently lately over the 600, and the step back up will suit. Expect her to lead all the way. Go Caviar, the main danger, won here last week, but she wasn’t very impressive. She was slow to begin and took far to long to reel on some very plain dogs. In the end she won as she liked, but it was far from convincing and she’ll need to improve a lot here to turn the tables on Betsy Allen. But she’s capable and is the main danger.
Launceston Greyhounds Race 4 Box 1 Happy Tiger, 8.42pm
The Tas middle distance championship, and Happy Tiger looks to have a mortgage on the race. There will be plenty of money for the talented Jeff The Tipster but I doubt he can beat the perfectly boxed and in form Happy Tiger. He’s unbeaten from box 1 and loves the inside box. He returned last week here with a solid win against some ordinary opposition and he was impressive in maintaining the recent form he showed when winning at Sandown. He’s only had the one go here and he failed, but don’t expect him to fail here tonight. He’s boxed perfectly on the rail and he should land 3rd or 4th early and simply over power them. The only concern is that Jeff The Tipster pings and gets the fly, If he does then it will make it super tough for Happy Tiger.
Shepparton Greyhounds Race 7 Box 5 Zambora Gun 9.10pm
I’m confident this fellow can win, but I’m more confident you can lay the favourite Matt’s Enity. There’s no doubt he’s a flying machine but I doubt he can hold off dogs as fast over the longer trip of 450. He’s quite weak and does paddle over the final 30m over the 400 so the 450 is going to really test him. All Zambora Gun needs to do is stay in touch with him early and he’ll over power him with ease in the run to the line. Majestic Lee is also capable of doing the same thing with a clear run and his best jump. But the Gun’s in form and he won well at Sandown recently. A few back he scorched around the track at Bulli and showed tremendous speed and strength, so stick with him here tonight and, if he comes out and gets close, he’ll win.
Best of Luck
