Sensational night of racing last night with many upsets. Grigorieva Bale upset the more fancied runners and raced away with the Group 1 Golden Easter Egg.
Young gun Fancy Liza put pay to her rivals and put on a front running display winning the Group 1 Association Cup. Clockwise stole the show in the Magic Maiden and won at the juicy odds of $15. Charmed Assassin, for Jane Carruthers won the New Sensation; and two time Group 1 winner Spud Regis, took out the Ambrosoli coming from behind to race right away.
Our best bet, and the best bet of many others around the country, Punch One Out,; failed to fire a shot and consequently ran nearer to last then first. The recent track record breaker began ordinary, and was never out trouble there after.
Let’s hope Easter Sunday can bring about some Easter joy, in the form of a few winners. Things have been a little light on recently and as we all know, you have your ups and downs. But having more ups then downs, is the most important thing. A staking plan can be of massive advantage, when punting and staying in front.
Albion Park Greyhounds, Race 6 Box 6 Black Eye Bean, 6.20pm Qld time
It’s been a long time coming for this fellow, but finally he makes his long awaited debut over the 600m journey. Unfortunately, he’s not going to start at great odds. But he looks like he could be really something over the journey. He has been getting home over the 520 like a train, often coming from a long, long way back, to either score, or finish very close to the winner. He meets an ordinary bunch, with the best of them, recent Thursday night winner ‘Chase’. Who run a respectable 35.50 odd over the trip. Expect Black Eye Bean to drop out early and rattle hard at the end. Chase should take up the lead, and it will be up to our selection to run him down. Each way.
Sandown Greyhounds, Race 11 Box 6 Cross Cut, 5.17pm Vic Time
We tipped this fellow a few days ago and while he failed to win, he did loom very ominously before being cut out at a vital stage. This field is no harder, but he has been done no favorite with the box draw. Box 6 will make it tough from out there, but hopefully having the green rug will ensure a backable price. He has a huge motor but is still very green and learning to race. He has enough speed, if he jumps, to position near the lead early and will only need to do so to thrash these. Box 6 should be the only factor that beats him here, if he does get rolled.
Bendigo Greyhounds, Race 6 Box 2 Denesur, 7.29pm Vic Time
The Karen Leek trained and owned Denesur will have to fall over to get beat in this. No doubt the money will come for Especially, after her flying second to Arizona Dozer in a heat of the Bendigo Cup. But Denesur has proven himself time and time again against the best opposition. He only begins moderately, but has electrifying mid race pace and should easily account for this lot. He may be slight overs, with the pink runner well boxed and a bitch who shows tremendous speed at times. The 500m journey is perfect for Denesur and no excuse here tonight. Should be winning.
The Bendigo Cupheadlines today’s card with 8 runners all vying for the winners cheque of $42,000. Kel Greenough has two engaged and probably likely favourite Paw Licking. It’s a race filled with extreme speed, and no doubt it will be on from the get go. The lids fly open in the Bendigo Cup at 8.09 Vic time.
Best Of Luck.
