Another huge night of racing tonight, with the running of the Group 1 Hobart Thousand. Australia’s best one turn dog Black Magic Opal will start the overall favourite. But with Rewind coming out of retirement and never finishing worst then second at Hobart and being beat by tiny margins in the last two Hobart Thousand finals, he’s one dog who won’t let the Opal get it all his own way.
Albion Park Greyhounds Race 6 Box 7 Phantom Jewels, 8.28pm
Big run here last week by this girl and she’s boxed to win here tonight. She’s a slow beginner but may find herself up the front and leading this field, with very little early pace engaged.There’s no doubt the timing mechanism has made the overall race times 2/10s quicker, so a little disregard has to be implemented when assessing race times at present. But with that being said, she’s very strong and is easily capable of breaking 35.00 seconds here. She got home really well here last week, but wasn’t going to catch the leader Waynie Boy.
He’s not engaged here in this and there’s no excuse for her not to win this race. She is better than these, is in form and well boxed. Phantom Jewels is a great winning bet.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 5 Box 5 Victa Scott, 8.38pm
Victa Scott gets his chance to bounce back to the winners circle tonight. He’s won from box five and has recorded a sub 30.00 run on a couple of occasions. He’s been racing over the longer journey recently, but he should still posses enough pace to be in the leading division early on. With the right run and a little luck, he can certainly be backed eachway with confidence.
Dapto Greyhounds Race 3 Box 7 She’s Quoted, 8.10pm
Tricky race with a few winning chances. She’s Quoted will represent good value and can certainly win.
Box seven won’t help her, but if she can get across and find the fence early on, she’s very strong and can wind up late to run over the top of these here. Jeremy Jet is the likely favourite and the hardest to beat. But he’s in poor form and will need to find his best here to win. If She’s Quoted can land in front of Jeremy Jet early, I’m confident she can beat him home. Eachway.
Hobart Greyhounds Race 10 Box 4 Rumbling Rick, 10.50pm
We will have to wait till the last here tonight, but I like the chances of Rumbling Rick here in the last heat. He jumped well here last week before being checked out of it. He was entitled to miss a place last week, but to his credit he rallied hard and chased with intent to find his way back into a place. He should come out between Varcoe, and Black Rip and he’s the strongest of the 3 runners. If these three find the clear front, then expect Rumbling Rick to be finishing the strongest. Box four won’t worry him and he is a big chance here.
Sandown Greyhounds Race 8 Box 1 Gold Town, 9.35pm
The last four runs of Gold Town have been nothing short of brilliant. And now he’s drawn box one, I doubt whether he can be beat. He’s in striking form and has been getting home like a train in his races.
He’s won four races from box one and will get the perfect sit behind a few here early. Once in the straight expect him to blast straight past these here to win. Great bet.
Best Of Luck
