Ipswich Greyhounds Race 1 Box 7 Citi Flyer, 3.07pm
I can remember many years ago when I had a handy young dog who I thought would “just win” at Ipswich on a Wednesday night in a maiden 520 at Ipswich. While milling around the enclosure I encountered a young striking black dog, which really looked like a star. He turned out to be just that, beating my dog by 6 or so lengths and running a flying 30.52 in a maiden.
By Bit Chilli from Citi Heritage was Citi Hawk, and this fellow, Citi Flyer, is a half brother to him. Trained by the Mackenzie-Ross family this fellow only needs to be half as good as his half brother to win this maiden here today. I’ve been told he trialled well enough to win this, and punters can look forward to a strong showing by the son on Fear Zafonic. Eachway.
Lismore Greyhounds Race 5 Box 2 Miss Lauryn, 8.05pm
It’s been a long time coming, but Tony Brett has finally stepped Miss Lauryn up to the distance trip. Her mother Queen Lauryn holds the track record here and while Miss Lauryn won’t break it, she should still win this here tonight. She’s a sub 30.00 winner over the 520 at Albion Park and generally comes from behind in doing so. The 630m trip will suit and she may find herself much more forward early here tonight. While the competition is stiff, she does look the one to beat and should be a great winning bet.
It’s been a while since this fellow found the winner’s podium. In his last 5 starts he’s drawn badly and really raced poorly. He’s first up from a short spell so he should fire out of the boxes in the red tonight. It’s a very tough race and any of the dogs can win this, but he’s equally as good as anything in this field and should acquit himself well from the red. At odds of over $10.00 he’s worth the punt here tonight.
Best of Luck
