Albion Park Greyhounds Race 3 Box 8 Spring Caprice, 7.22pm
Plenty of tough races on the card tonight at Albion Park. Hara’s Sammy looks hard to beat, as does Fawn Corsair. The young, but super talented son of Dashing Corsair looks the likely winner of his 600 metre event.
Spring Caprice looks the best value and this looks the right sort of race for her. She wasn’t beaten all that far last time out and can show top early speed to clear them from the pink box. Once in front she should carve out solid sectionals and be very hard to run down. She was only just beaten here last start by Grin And Win in a much tougher race. Although the time wasn’t flash, it was a rough and tumble affair and the slow winning time reflects that.
Her trainer Col Byers doesn’t do much racing here at Albion Park, but when he does he generally only aims his 520 meter dogs here. He prefers to race his short course dogs at Ipswich, so rest assured he’s confident she can run the longer trip out. Spring Caprice hails from a pretty handy litter so keep your eyes on them as they progress.
The main danger looks to be No Hugs Here from box one. He should get the run of the race and will be tough to beat if he slides through early and takes up a forward position. Third pick is Miss Kamikaze, who looks above average and can certainly win with luck. These three selections look the main winning hopes.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 4 Box 2 Princess Tee 7.34pm
The ex-Queenslander won well last start at her fourth attempt since coming back to South Australia. She went exceptionally well, running 29.97 in the process. Box two looks great for her again here and she should find it much easier to take the early lead from box two that from box six last week. Although she broke 30.00 here last week, I doubt she’s capable of going much quicker, but a sub 30.00 run will see her win this.
Cosmic Illusion could be the main danger if she pings and finds the bunny early. She’s not overly strong, but can run around 30.15 if things go her way. Princess Tee is armed with early speed however, and she’s shown she can run the time required.
Launceston Greyhounds Race 9 Box 1 Chicka Scott, 10.18pm
This fellow has a PB of 29.86 and loves exiting the red box. He’s got a big motor and can run when things go his way. This is only his second run tonight from a short lay off and he should be fresh and ready to ping. He loves to rail and at times can come out running. There is little or no speed on the inside so he should get enough room to push up under a few from the start.
Kawasaki Rose will be the market leader and she should let rip from the moment the boxes fly open. She’s broken 30.00 here and looks set to be a pretty handy chaser.
Chicka Scott should represent value and he’s worth an eachway ticket.
