Albion Park Greyhounds Race 7 Number 1 New Gleam, 7:09pm (Local Time)
The favourite in this race is likely to be number six, Blue Bird, who boasts the record of nine starts for six wins and two minors- with a best time of 30.20 over the track and distance. However, she is first up since July and isn’t drawn very well. Also, while she does have excellent speed when she hits the ground, she can be tardy out of the boxes which doesn’t help. Bralyn Casey on her inside is the class runner but she doesn’t have a very good strike rate at the track. New Gleam on the other hand returns to the track after a 30.33 win here last start. If Blue Bird jumps she will win but, if she does anything wrong, this bloke is boxed to feature.
Sale Greyhounds Race 5 Number 1 Salegrey’s Late, 7:19pm (Local Time)
While she has only faced the starter on four occasions, Salegrey’s Late has done enough to suggest that she can win from the cherry in this race. The daughter of El Grand Senor failed at her last start after a poor beginning but prior to that she had recorded two smart wins over the 440 at Sale running 25.14 and 25.25 respectively. She demonstrated good early pace in both of those runs and from the inside draw she should land straight on the bunny or at least be able to push her way up along the rail once she hits the ground. She won’t be big odds but she should be around the $3 mark which is a nice little investment. Don’t take any silly odds because there are a couple of handy dogs in the race- the favourite is likely to be Royale Revenge, another youngster, although he has to overcome an awkward draw in box six.
Wagga Greyhounds Race 6 Number 8 Swanky Amelia, 7:46pm (Local Time)
There is not much value to be had, and although she isn’t boxed terribly well, Swanky Amelia should be able to land the cash here. She has only had three starts for two wins but both of her victories have been in best of day times at Wagga (18.68) and Temora (19.37). While some race well and have gone quicker here, most are out of form. She has everything going for her and should be able to muster enough speed and circle her opponents in this event.
