Over $200,000 on offer at the Gardens today with the Group 1 National Derby and Group 1 National Futurity to be run and won today.
The Gardens Greyhounds. Race 5 Box 6. Punch One Out 8.38 pm. Nsw time
National Futurity final here and I’ve stuck with Punch One Out the hole way through the series, so I won’t be jumping off here. Super hard race and to many variables to go through nearly all the runners will get their chance. Punch One Out is boxed well and might get a nice cart across behind Little Miss Sparkle, who has fantastic burn but lacks the strength. Punch One Out to run over the top here. Super hard race and best of luck to all the Finalists.
Wentworth Park Greyhounds. Race 1 Box 1. Sickness 3.47 pm nsw time
Tough race here today and I’m going with the rails draw. Sickness has loads of early speed and is boxed to jump and run. Gets very tired but should open up a good break and keep rolling to the line. All the runners have very similar PB’s and I think the dog who leads will win – hopefully Sickness does that. Ones things for sure if he doesn’t win I’ll be the one coming down with Sickness. Good chance from a good box.
Geelong Greyhounds. Race 10 Box 1 Gate Crash. 10.08 pm Vic time
The very talented Gate Crash has drawn the rails here. And looks set too notch up win number 2. He has a really big motor and was only a length of breaking 30.00 for the 520 at Albion one night. And if he reproduces anything like that he will give this lot win burn. Should punch up from the start and with clear running should be way too good for these.
Casino Greyhounds. Race 11 Box 2 Bralyn Bop Bop. 3.07pm Nsw time
Surely this has to be the day that Bop Bop finally salutes. He has to contend with Bogan Miss drawn on his inside. Who went terrific last start jumping and looking brilliant when kicking away mid field for a great win. Bop Boo either jumps to the lead and wins or jumps second and finishes to hard for Bogan Miss. Either way today’s the best chance for him to salute.
Ipswich Greyhounds, Race 8 Box 5 Alleez Brigette. 5.14pm Qld time
We round out today’s tips here with the last semi final of the Vince Curry, Australia’s Richest Maiden race with the winner of next weeks final to receive $40,000. Aleez Brigette, looks panels better then these; has a big motor and should jump lead and win. Really showed what she was made of when charging from the rear to run second in her quali and with a clear run from the get go, she looks impossible to beat. Has good early toe, and is strong in the run home; so she can do it from both ends.
Just wins this and looks a huge chance in winning next weeks final.
Best of luck.
