Big night of racing ahead tonight at . Heats of the Futurity take center stage with some really good quality bitches engaged. has 3 runners engaged, with the standout out being Oakvale Destiny, who recorded a near record 29.76 at recently. has the brilliant Bridgeson in box two, who has run a flying 29.40 at Sandown.

South Australian trainer Ben Rawlings also has former Queenslander Bogie Classic exiting box two, and she's in super form with a quick 30.50 win at two starts back. Hall of fame trainer has his brilliant bitch Made For Ron in, who has been working her her way back to the 520 metre distance with some scorching 395 metre wins recently.

Heat one of the Bogie Leigh Futurity kicks off at 6.57pm, with the first race at Albion to start at 6.39pm.

Albion Park Greyhounds Race 9 Box 2 Angvella 9.28pm

Angvella was last weeks Albion Park selection and while he was slow to begin he did run a solid race to finish second. As I wrote last week Angvella is a real high speed chaser who should go on to make top grade here at Albion Park. He has run some brilliant times at and looks capable of breaking 30.00 should he jump and hit the front. He's a pacey dog and should lead these here tonight from box two.

Box one runner Space Wave is only an ordinary beginner and Angvella should have no problems crossing her and finding the bunny. Once out and on the bunny I expect him to show his turn of foot and at least race to a two length lead early. He should be able to run 11.60 down the back and that should see him open up a unassailable lead.

Box three runner Are Ate looks a danger and he's going to be there for the majority of the race. He too has recorded fast times at Ipswich and did win the Devonport Cup a few starts back. Benarkin has box five for one of Queensland's leading trainers Tony Brett, and he's been racing superb lately. But he'll get a long way back tonight and it's unlikely he can come from a long way back to run down Angvella on the bunny.

Stick with Angvella and he should be $5.00 tonight.

Angle Park Race 4 Box 5 Defib Daryl 8.14pm

Rulebook is the obvious winner here after his brilliant effort to break the long standing 600 metre record at last week running 34.35 from box one. He has drawn the red again tonight, so expect him to just win. But Defib Daryl looks a huge chance to run second at odds. He's a terrific chaser and will chase really hard from off the speed. It's likely Rulebook will open them right up tonight and I expect most of the dogs won't chase as hard as they can off the bunny.

Defib Daryl was checked out of contention early Monday night and still chased hard to rattle home to grab fourth. He shouldn't find trouble tonight and he looks certain to run second in this. Wild Soul and Mr Donatello look the only two who can full third place.

Punters looking to grab some cash from this race should take the Trifecta 1-5-78 $2.00 for 100%.

Launceston Greyhounds Race 5 Box 4 Alonnah, 8.41pm

Alonnah has been racing well of late and looks the winner in this. She should be around the $5.00 mark early on fixed prices, so get on early. She looks capable of setting the early tempo and should find the top, or at worst sit second. She has a solid best time of 26.17 here and unless something in this field improves out of sight that will be good enough up win this.

Boxes three and five have no early speed so they shouldn't pose any problem early for Alonnah. If she pings and goes like she can and races to her best she should be winning. Box eight runner Real Caution has the motor and ability to win but he can be a bit awkward in running and at times finds more trouble then he should.

Stick with Alonnah she looks the one.

Sandown Greyhounds Race 2 Box 2 Salegreys Power 7.24pm

Salegreys Power is a very speedy beginner who has been racing very consistently of late. She shouldlead around the first turn as they enter the back straight. She only has a best time of 29.80 and she will need to go quicker to win, but her last start win at was good and she ran a good 30.18 for the 525 metre trip. She's the classiest runner engaged in this and we should see her first past the post.

Box one runner Peter Pettigrew can threaten, but he does tend to get a long way back and he may end up squeezed up and out the back early. If he does happen to stay in touch and gain clear galloping room he could run clean over the top of them here.

Best Of Luck
