Greyhound Punters Load Up On Glen Gallon In Melbourne Cup

Greyhound punters are guaranteed the best price for the highly fancied Glen Gallon in tomorrow night’s Melbourne Cup final with online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au offering Top Tote Plus for the Sandown meeting.

Queensland dog Glen Gallon is $3.50 equal favourite from the rails draw, with local hope Don’t Knocka Him, who jumps from box three.

“Punters are going to be the real winners here because with Top Tote Plus they don’t have to go shopping for the best odds. They’re guaranteed it with sportsbet.com.au,” sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes said.

“This looks a terrific race and there was not a lot between the entire field in qualifying times. The Queenslander has the edge from the rails, but he will need to ping to hold them out.”

As well as Don’t Knocka Him, trainer Jason Thompson also has Proven Nitro and Got A Moment in the Cup, with both live chances at $5.50 and $8.00 respectively.

Champion bitch Miata, winner of 33 of her 40 starts, is at $1.60 for the Bold Trease ahead of rising staying star Jethro ($3.80). Miata is chasing her fourth Group 1 and will jump from box two.
