Greyhound racing best bets – Thursday October 12, 2017
Hobart R4 No.8 – It’s A Wink Freakish talent and she is beautifully boxed out wide. From the pink she should get every chance to muster pace and find the front – on the bunny she is capable of running around the 25.80 mark and I doubt there is another dog in this field which can go that quick.
Albion Park R5 No.1 – Pure Vengeance Was very impressive when winning his heat in a handy 30.36 and gets the gun draw for tonight’s final. Needs to come out a little bit better but if he can punch through and lead I expect him to be too good.
Albion Park R8 No.1 – Alota Amy Coming into this race in career best form having won her past three in a row. Last start she was particularly impressive when running down Joyce Rumble in a best of night 29.73 and from the red she should be able to put herself in contention in the early stages. She is super strong and if she gets anywhere near the lead through the first turn they will be struggling to hold her out.
Sandown Park R6 No.3 – Angel Dash Probably not the fastest greyhound in the race but she is boxed well and is a brilliant beginner. If she can find the front she is capable of running around the 29.40 mark and that could be enough to pinch it out in front. Back her each-way.
Sandown Park R7 No. 1 Bruce Tycoon Getting on in age but he is still racing well and he gets his favourite box at his favourite track. Seems to grow a leg from the inside draw and he is at handy odds worth backing.
