THE weekend is here once again, providing the perfect opportunity to kick back, relax and have a wager on some fantastic greyhound racing events around the country.
Leg 1 – Geelong – Race 8: Unix Bale To Place at $3.40 (top two finish required)
Unix Bale can be a little inconsistent and hard to follow at times but she looks well placed nearer the inside and she should add some value to our multi. I’m expecting the red to push through at the first bend and that should allow Unix Bale to get a dream run through, she is extremely strong in the run home and with an ounce of luck mid race she should be there at the end.
Leg 2 – The Gardens – Race 5: Once A Drifter To Place (top two finish required) at $1.12
Once A Drifter is blessed with a massive engine and he should be suited by the rise in distance. In recent weeks he has been finding a lot of trouble in his races but he has been powering to the line and he has turned in some great performances. Tonight he has a wide runner drawn directly on his outside, so he should get a clear passage in the early stages and once he balances up mid race he should put a space in them. You can take him for the win in your multi but with the smaller field you might get over the odds for the place on middle tote as it requires a top two finish.
Leg 3 – Ipswich – Race 7: With A Gee To Place at $2.38
His recent form doesn’t look too crash hot but he does have a great record here and he will be very strong in the run to the line. The inside and middle division appear to be evenly matched in the early speed department and the inside runners like to move wide at the turn, so if he can drop out in the early stages he should get a nice run through at the first bend. He should be quite big odds so he should add plenty of value.
