Addington greyhound tips & quaddie picks | Thursday, March 23
Regular greyhound racing on Thursday night returns to Addington for a 12-race meeting including a couple of Class 5 features and a Class 2 distance race. The action commences at 4:11pm NZDT.
Best Bet: Know Keeper (Race 6)
What more can be said about Know Keeper other than he is the best distance greyhound in New Zealand right now? He just demoralised what was a stronger field from box one last week and has won five from his 12 starts when wearing the pink rug. He only faces five rivals here and just wins for fun. Put him on every multi ticket.
Race 6 – Majestic Legend (3)
Form: 2411 | Career: 83: 42-20-6 | Trainer: Garry Cleeve
Next Best Bet: Lucky Jack (Race 7)
Lucky Jack is a great chance to make it back-to-back wins after clocking a respectable 17.09 seconds when winning from trap five last week. He is at his best when drawing down near the rail, and with the red rug on he should be too quick and will be looking to crack the 17-second mark.
Race 7 – Lucky Jack (1)
Form: 1731 | Career: 26: 13-3-2 | Trainer: Anthony Hart
Best Value Bet: Ruidosa (Race 4)
Ruidosa has been costly at her last two starts, making slow beginnings and then getting checked out of the running. The wide draw could make all the difference, as she will have clear air to her outside and can scout around the outer without interference. She is capable of lowering her 17.24-second personal best and will be at backable odds.
Race 4 – Majestic Legend (3)
Form: 5257 | Career: 15: 4-1-0 | Trainer: Janine Jopson
