NCA Paws Of Thunder Pre Post Market Update

The updated Pre Post market for the Group 1 2008 NCA Paws Of Thunder Semi Finals has just been released and there’s been plenty of changes in the market with some impressive shorteners and one live chance who has got out in the market despite an impressive win in the heats.

The Pre Post Market for the Group 1 2008 NCA Paws Of Thunder from Sportsbet has seen some impressive shorteners in the betting, none more so than Cyclone Ned who was $101 prior to the heats and is now a $26 chance from his box seven draw in Paws Of Thunder Semi Final 3.

Another notable shortener is Cradle Mountain who was incredibly $251 prior and is now showing $51.

At the tight end of the betting Repeated has firmed in from $26 to just $10 and is now on the third line of betting after his dominant 29.84 win in the heats, and Knocka Norris put paid to any concerns over his consistency with another impressive best of night run (29.56) for Reg Kay and had firmed from $9 to equal favourite with El Galo at $5.

By virtue of those firmers, under-rated Sydney sprinter Cindeen Shelby has actually blown in the market from $7.50 prior to her spectacular 29.80 all the way win to $8, and she has drawn one of the weaker Paws Of Thunder Semi Finals and must be the best of good things to go through to the final from her box two draw in Paws Of Thunder Semi Final 2.

As always we are able to offer to our readers a Free $50 bet for anyone that is able to open a new account with Sportsbet.

Just open a new account at Sportsbet and you can be betting Pre Post on the Group 1 2008 NCA Paws Of Thunder for free.

The full updated market follows and remember that the first two greyhounds across the line in each semi final will go through to the Paws Of Thunder Final one week later, and at this stage Elite Oriental and Lochinvar Prada are early scratchings, giving Borat the run from box eight and Orphan Point a run from box two.

NCA Paws Of Thunder Semi Final 1 Summary
El Galo did nothing wrong last week and has justified then $5 Pre Post quote. His early speed should see him lead all the way again from this draw. One Tree Hill has firmed to $17 by virtue of her box one draw here, but she does have a tendency to run just a dog or two off on the corner at Wentworth Park and is some risk. Thai Alert would be the obvious choice to run in to the money in this and Cool Flight has drawn his box out in the eight and could be placed at odds.

NCA Paws Of Thunder Semi Final 2 Summary
Cindeen Shelby amazingly got out in the betting after her 29.80 heat win and I can’t see any reason not to load up on her each way for the final at the $8 pre post quote. This little red fawn bitch has been quietly racking up the wins and has done nothing wrong since her Group 2 Young Star Classic win and her last run was a personal best. Surgeon was impressive enough at his first run at the track and Borat will have some chance from Elite Oriental’s vacant box eight draw, but each way all day Cindeen Shelby for mine.

NCA Paws Of Thunder Semi Final 3 Summary
Knocka Norris came away from last Saturday’s 29.56 heat win with a new legion of believers, and a new personal best time. Once the victim of not being able to put a few good runs together, Reg Kay and perhaps a little maturity seem to have put that all behind him now. The winner of seven of his last eight starts, should know the way now from box five, having won the National Sprint Championship from the same draw at Wentworth Park at the end of August. Mantral Lad was impressive last week coming back in distance from his National Distance Championship win here, but doubt he can match it with Knocka Norris early. Iigloo Osti a rough chance from his inside draw.

NCA Paws Of Thunder Semi Final 4 Summary
Interesting race as Repeated would have started the best of good things had he not drawn inside noted “crasher” Lorna Moira. On the inside of him is another with early speed in Pheonix Flash. This race is an accident waiting to happen, as Repeated will likely get no peace early and yet is easily the quickest in the field by far, with the exception of Jack Dolly who led all the way last week to run 29.89 and is a healthy $51 on the pre post market. Repeated is the best in this but I’m happy to back Jack Dolly and Kiacatoo Pearl, who has good box one form, each at the $51 and $21 pre post and risk the fact Repeated may not get a clean shot at them.
