Albion Park Greyhounds Race 9 Box 6 Never Ever, 9.26pm
There looks to be a few nice winners here at Albion Park’s meeting tonight. Skuzi looks tough to beat, Hougenie looks set to salute and Katherine Benz can win at a nice price from out wide. But our top pick is the Anne Southee trained son of Cosmic Rumble, Never Ever.
He’s been around the mark in his last couple and has threatened to win at some stage, but has fallen short on the past two occasions. He should lead these from out wide tonight and once on the bunny, he should carve out solid time. He’s not overly strong, but neither are the rest of the runners. Hara’s Annie will pose a problem early for Never Ever as he looks to rail up. But as long as he gets across her, I’m confident he can beat her.
Hara’s Annie and Loud Max look hardest to beat and are both boxed well. Hara’s Annie put in a fantastic run here last start chasing home litter brother Hara’s Harry to finish second, and she should improve on that performance. If she finds the front before Never Ever does, I doubt Never Ever can run her down. Loud Max is the best credentialed runner with a PB of 30.25, but he’s pretty disappointing even though he’s finished runner up in his last four starts.
These three runners look the standouts and should run in the top three. Punters looking to take a first four should throw in box one runner Chez Dominique trained by leading trainer Sandra Hunt.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 5 Box 5 British Bomber, 7.57pm
This son of Elite State was always going to knock up winning a few here at Angle Park. He’s been solid over the 515 trip here winning a couple and running a few placings. He does look suited to the 600 metre trip and has performed well in two of his three starts, with a solid PB of 35.37. He goes better from outside draws as he likes room to move and races a couple off the rail. He’s better suited out here I feel than when he was when running second over the trip last start.
The only concern here is that he may be slow to begin and find himself caught up in the early scrimmage. But he’s capable of beginning and should with ordinary beginners boxed around him.
The main two danger are box eight runner Full Beer Fridge, who’s having his first go over the trip. He has been racing poorly over the 515 of late, but he should fire out and could be a smokey if he can lead clearly. Oogaboo Oz is the likely second favourite and she’ll be a huge threat if presented with the right run. These three dogs look the top three runners in the race.
Launceston Greyhounds Race 10 Box 3 Bag Of Spice 10.40pm
Bag of Spice won’t be more then even money, but he looks the outright winner with a couple of likely chances engaged who don’t like winning. Sandy’s Pick has the ability to win this but hasn’t yet worked out what winning is. He was lucky to win last start after throwing the race away a couple of times. He’s suited by the red box, but I doubt he’ll use it to the best of his ability. Arnhem Warrior has also been going well, but the squeeze box makes it harder.
Bag Of Spice is in form and should jump straight to the front in this and put the race beyond doubt. He looks capable of running low 30.00s and should win with a few lengths in hand. His recent form is fantastic and all things point to win number three for the son of Collision and Pepper Spice.
Great bet and a race where a roughie could find the placings.
Shepparton Greyhounds Race 7 Box 2 Lachlan Bomber, 9.09pm
Three starts back Lachlan Bomber went really well when running second the the Jason Thompson trained Scintillating. This is a far easy race and he should find his way to the front from the start. He’s a pretty speedy dog on his night but hasn’t really fired since coming up from Sydney, but he’s also had too tackle a few smart ones in the process. He hasn’t drawn well in his past 8 starts and there’s no doubt that attributed to his poor form. If he comes out and finds the bunny tonight, I doubt they will catch the son of Dyna Lachlan.
Jack Silver is the class runner and is in form, and he’ll be hard to beat in this. Punters taking a gamble on Lachlan Bomber will be hoping Jack Silver bombs the start and gets held up in traffic at some stage in the race.
Best of luck
