It was a tidy night of tipping yesterday with three winners and one second. Crump won a heat of the Geelong Cup, coming from behind and bursting through the field to race right away and pay a nice $4.90. It was also a big night for the former Queenslander, Frosty Jay Jay, who easily won a heat of the Geelong cup after being transferred to the kennels of leading trainer Kel Greenough. The other two winners were favourites, but we were extremely unlucky not to get one up at double figure odds- Taumololo raced right away, only to get reeled in right on the line.
Tonight we see the heats of the Lismore Cup and there’s some outstanding types engaged. Northern rivers trainer Frank Hancock has some talented young chasers engaged from his boom Collision x Dulcinea litter, Jason Mckay has runners engaged and Hall of Fame trainer Ron Ball also heads down with his team of talent. The Lismore Cup always attracts a big crowd and it’s always a great spectacle at the track. So, if you can, make sure you get down to see the heats and grab a great meal.
Lismore Greyhounds Race 4 Box 5 Rose Of Galo, 7.41pm
There’s no doubt Rose of Galo is going to win a big one sooner or later. Her early toe is just electric and she flies the lids and keeps going when not pressured. After carefully going through the field, I can only see one dog putting the pressure on her here, Zipping Summah. I’m hopefully the trainer of Rose of Galo, Alby, has trialled her here. It’s hard to say if Jason had trialled his bitch and track regulars are unable to tell me. Rose of Galo has run a 30.00 flat at Albion and that should equate to a 30.05 run here at Lismore. It’s a little bit of a tougher run than Albion, but with her electric speed she should get a few of these off the bunny early on. She should start second favourite and she’s worth the punt. She’s a reliable beginner and we are sure to know our fate when the lids fly open.
Warragul Greyhounds Race 7 Box 3 Mystic Grille, 8.50pm
Tough race here over the staying trip. Rex Best will probably start favourite, but I’m not convinced he’ll win out of turn, and I don’t think it’s his turn tonight. Mystic Grille on the other hand looks a handy type, albeit she’s stepping up to the staying trip early. She’s by the great Bombastic Shiraz and her form is very consistent, making it’s hard to knock her. She won well at the Meadows a few starts back and if she can get forward early, she’ll no doubt be in the firing line. I don’t think 680 will suit, but I do think she may skip away early here and hold on. Rex Best will be thundering home and they look the only two who are capable of winning.
Best Of Luck
