With the Melbourne Cup on tomorrow I’m sure we are all looking to back a winner to have a few more pennies in our pockets to wager on Australia’s Biggest race. So let’s hope we can find a few here tonight.
Albion Park Greyhounds Race 2 Box 1 Intensive Storm, 7.02pm
I still can’t work out whether this race is a 395m event or the usual 520m race on a Monday night. It seems Racing Queensland is heading in a backward direction by once again scheduling 395m scamper races on a Monday night. If this is the case, then we are certainly going backwards, rather than forwards. Either way I believe Intensive Storm will get the cash and certainly now after her strong performance last start over the 500. Since this girl won her maiden I’ve been closely following her. From box 1 here tonight she should begin and hold out littermate and likely danger Wilhelm early on, and will look to take the lead from the get-go. She’s got quite a motor on her and she will no doubt improve on her PB of 23.07 here tonight if she pings. The red gives her the advantages she needs and punters should look no further then that when wagering on this race. It looks a great 1-2 quinella race.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 5 Box 1 Dyna Daina, 7.51pm
Dyna Daina is yet to win from box 1, but I’m confident tonight is the first time she does. She bounced back to her best here last week, only just getting beat by iron dog Tercel. She led on that occasion, but was run down through the middle stages and lost sight of the bunny. That shouldn’t occur here tonight and she should be on the bunny and running from the get-go against these. But there is a few in this that can gallop- Dyna Aline, Token Spinner and Tango Man will all be out to spoil the party. Dyna Aline is a rocket, and if she spears and leads I doubt they can catch her. Token Spinner is slow early, so he will need luck and Tango Man is yet to win over the distance but box 8 will suit and he’s certainly capable of shaking things up. Dyna Daina has run fast time here and with the added advantage of the red I’ll stick with her today in a tough but competitive race.
Launceston Greyhounds Race 5 Box 5 Mental as Ben, 8.53pm
I’ll go with the likely second favourite here in Mental As Ben, in this race. It’s a two dog war and one in which we can hopefully back the winner. Our pick Ben is the more experienced runner and that can be a huge advantage at times. Box 1 Dominator Girl, has recorded a near identical time here (29.99) and will probably be off and running early in this. But, given the quality of the field, Mental as Ben should zip straight into second early on, and will look to run her down. With 14 starts for 4 wins I expect him to improve on his PB of 29.98 and he shoot get down around the 29.90 mark given he gains a clear and trouble free passage. He will likely start the second favourite, so he’s worth the punt here in this two dog race.
Only the 3 selection here this Monday night, But hopefully the 3 best.
Best of Luck
