I always look forward to Monday nights. Monday and Thursday night greyhound racing deliver the most 500m events, and there’s no doubt these are the best betting races. It’s a great shame that Bulli, will soon loose there Monday night slot, and we will revert to Monday night racing at Wentworth Park, where I’m sure we are going to see lots more “squib” races over the shorter 300m trip. They’re not a good spectacle and are terrible betting races. Winning at Wentworth Park was once held in high regard, I’m afraid now it will loose its prestige. Hopefully we can find a few winners before the change takes place.
Albion Park Greyhounds, Race 5 Box 1 Auriga Legend 8.04pm
The first leg of the Quaddie here tonight and our selection is the talented but very moody Auriga Legend for trainer Geoff Draheim. The son of the ill-fated High Earner has plenty of talent and has the ability to really open up this type of field. There doesn’t appear to be any standout out danger, and as long as this bloke turns up to race, he should have no trouble winning here. He can switch off at times and he did so one day at Ipswich and effectively threw the race away. He has early toe and should be far too good here if he turns up. He’s going to be short, but I wouldn’t be coming into him unless you can get 2-1.
Angle Park Greyhounds, Race 9 Box 2 Josephine Whiz, 9.17pm
The usual staying race on a Monday night at Angle Park; they are my favourite races and I often do very well. Uno Lesson is probably going to be all the rage after her last to first victory in last weeks race, but it didn’t impress me all that much. It was quite a funny race with none of the field really firing. Our selection Josephine Whiz has been disappointing of late and I’m hoping she can turn it all around. It’s been a long time between drinks and her record isn’t that great over the distance, but if she’s going to return to the winners circle, tonight looks her best chance. She may be able to land right in front here tonight, or a worst land straight on the rail. She doesn’t start to go until she reaches the rail. This is her race tonight and from a good box she should go awfully close. If she does happen to fail tonight we might just forget about her until she wins again. Don’t take sill odds 5-1 or better.
Bulli Greyhounds, Race 7 Box 1 Street Boss, 9.10pm
This race isn’t as tough as it appears in my opinion. The old boy of the field here, Street Boss; has an imposing record from box 1. From 11 attempts he has won 7 and run 3 placings, only missing the place once. He’s also 2 from 2 over the distance here. Last weeks run was super, and although the distance was far to short, the old boy raced remarkable well. He showed his experience weaving his way thorough, and chasing 110 percent from a long way off the bunny. He got home really well against a couple of really quick young dogs. He steps up to the longer journey here, and from the perfect box he looks mighty hard to beat. He should be able to position himself in the leading division, and I give him a great chance, of running right over the top of these in this. Keep your eye on Shanghai Rose I think she’s going to improve dramatically here tonight.
Launceston Greyhounds, Race 5 Box 6, Shanlyn Mini, 9.00pm
Terrible race here and I should be finding another selection, but I have been tipping Shanlyn Mini for a while now and this looks exactly the right race for her. It’s a very ordinary field with some runners still maidens. She goes well from a wide box and has a far quicker PB then most of these are capable of. Her PB of 30.25, and her record of 2 placings from 4 starts should be enough to see her salute here in this. Bad race but she looks the outright winner.
Shepparton Greyhounds, Race 7 box 5 Giselle Bale 9.07pm
Giselle Bale is our selection here and she does enjoy racing from middle boxes. She is racing well and 2 starts ago went terrific, I don’t like the like favourite from box 2, and I’m not a fan of Dale Bale on a one turn track. Giselle Bale to win this.
Best of Luck.
