Ipswich Greyhounds Race 9 Box 1 Wise Forecast, 6.33pm
It’s not hard to tell who the class runner here is in this race. Wise Forecast a daughter of Bombastic Shiraz, had amassed over $50,000 in prize money and won 19 races. She recently spent 3 months on the sideline with some form of injury and is back today having her 3rd start since the spell. She quite a strong bitch who will certainly make full use of the rail. She’s not brilliant early, but she did fire out last week at Albion Park, in a very quick 5.71. It wouldn’t surprise me at all, if she was to lead them up here tonight. She does have a slight flat spot after jumping out, but drops significantly back in grade from the best 8 fields she’s generally use to racing. I don’t think the 630 will pose to much of a problem, and she’s quite capable of running around the 37.40 mark here. Quality bitch with a big motor, and as long as she’s fit enough to run the journey, she’ll win. Today’s best bet.
Gawler Greyhounds, Race 1 Box 2 Red Beret 12.41pm
Gawler usually starts their day with a 643 staying event, and today is no different to usual. I’m going to have a red hot go at backing Red Beret. Formerly trained by Norm Bradford of Helensvale, the son of Mogambo appears to have been sold to SA connections. He’s recently been racing over at Lismore in NSWW and has been a dog I’ve tipped before. He failed badly at his last couple of starts at Lismore, but has run and won at Gawler. He has a PB of 37.83 and he won’t need to improve much on that to win this. I just get the feeling that now he’s based over here in SA, we may just see the best of him. Box 2 will suit and I expect him to possie up early around 2nd or 3rd. It’s a very tough race with 5 winning hopes, and I feel the dog who has the most luck, and finds the lead the first will be hardest to beat. The rails is a big plus, and this bloke should start the roughest of the race and at big odds he’s a great eachway bet in a 5 dog field. Remember there’s NTD (No Third Dividend) with only 5 starters. Knockout Chance!
Devonport Greyhounds, Race 1 Box 2 Who’s Talking, 12.34pm
There’s no doubt box 6 runner Jeff The Tipster, will start the outright favorite here in this but punters beware, he’s only had the 5 starts, and isn’t the best of beginners. There’s no doubt he will handle the added trip, if not today certainly in the future but he’s young inexperienced, and is boxed badly on a corner start. There’s no way I’d be taking less then $3.00 about him and there’s no chance he will start at that price. So for many reasons I’m going with box 2 runner Who’s Talking. The son of Talk’s Cheap, won his last start in a solid 30.21 at Launceston, and should have no trouble with the trip. He’s going to get a softer run then the favourite, and he looks the one to back at good odds. If Jeff the Tipster gets tangled up early this bloke along with 1 other,is the only other runner who can win. Hold On Coupe is that other dog, who can certainly get the job done from outwide. Who’s Taking, best boxed and great bet.
Lismore Greyhounds, Race 3 Box 1 Into Battle, 7.25pm
I’m going with the likely favourite here Into Battle for Frank Hancock. I know there’s big opinions of this litter and there’s a couple of flying machines yet to come. He’s been pretty good so far, and wasn’t disgraced last start at his 520 debut. He takes on easier opposition tonight, and is far better suited in box 1 then his last start box 7. Capella appears the only challenger, but will be spotting Into Battle a head start. Box 1 will be of huge advantage here, and Into Battle looks the goods here tonight.
Warragul Greyhounds, Race 7 Box 6 Wilson’s Venom, 8.48pm
Very tough race with 5 winning chances. I’m going with the well boxed Wilson’s Venom, who has a great record from box 6 and from out wide. Quite frankly it’s really a bad betting race in which punters should steer clear of but if you are able to find the winner, you will no doubt be rewarded with good odds. He’s got a quick time here and has plenty of experience and with clear running and a little mistake from the others, this bloke might get the cash here tonight. He’ll be eachway odds, so jump on him here.
Best Of Luck
