Ipswich Greyhounds Race 8 Number 3 Classy Haze, 5;16pm (Local Time)
Reg Kay’s talented youngster is stepping out for his first attempt over the track and distance. The son of Elite and Classy does not have much early toe, which has brought him undone in his last two appearances at Capalaba over the 366 sprint. Tonight he steps back up to the favourable 520 metres which should suit him very well. Three starts ago at Albion Park he began poorly from box five and came from last to score an ultra-impressive win after finding all sorts of trouble throughout the run. From box three tonight he should get every chance. Don’t take silly odds because he is still quite a clumsy racer, however if he uses his head at any stage he will be a live chance.
Geelong Greyhounds Race 5 Number 6 Jagger Swagger, 8:27pm (Local Time)
It’s a big night at Geelong with the running of the Gold Cup which is race 8 on the card. For those looking for an easy winner, Jagger Swagger looks the goods in race 5. While he will start at short odds, he is definitely the class runner of the field and can overcome the poor draw if he jumps well. The three time group winner hasn’t won since May but has been up against some tougher opposition than he meets tonight. Three starts back he placed fourth in the Group 1 Dapto Megastar at his first start back from a three month injury break. He was almost back to his best at his last start, running second to Imry Bale in a heat of the Cup, just one and three quarter lengths off the winner.
Wentworth Park Greyhounds Race 7 Number 1 Mexico City, 9:18pm (Local Time)
Mexico City has come up with an excellent draw in this race and he should lead the race from the get-go. The son of Where’s Pedro is usually a brilliant beginner and should get a clear run with a few average beginners on his outside. If he finds the front in the run out of the first turn he shouldn’t get run down and can bring up his sixth win at headquarters. Again, he won’t be big odds but he looks the winner
