Lismore Greyhounds Race 8 Box 4 I’m I Said, 9.05pm
This fellow is very talented and is a pretty good type in the making. His mother Black Candy, who is now sadly deceased, was a prolific Albion Park performer and this fellow looks just as talented this early on in his career. He is a winner of five from eight so far, with two minor placings. He was beaten here last week for the first time after beginning poorly, but I expect him to make amends here tonight. He’s not a brilliant box dog but he does have enough early toe to get across them from the pink box tonight.
Once across the race will be all over, but it’s just a case of if he can get across. At a price of 3.00 or better he is worth a ticket, but I cant see him starting at that price so bet cautiously.
Box five runner Queen Emma Cloud is the main danger. She has only won the one from nine here, but she’s run a few placings. She has enough early toe to fire out and if she gets across early she will be one who can knock off the favourite at a good price, so keep her safe.
It may be worth taking a boxed exacta with these two runners, because if Queen Emma Cloud does beat I’m I Said it will pay well for a $2.00 outlay for 100%.
Mandurah Greyhounds Race 9 Box 1 Nova’s Guess 12.27pm
Nova’s Guess is owned and trained by former leading Queensland trainers Dave and Christian Robartson, who bred and races champions such as El Galo, High Earner and Miss Hot Gossip. They have recently moved back across to WA and have had good success since doing so.
This girl is by the good producer Expect More out of Turanza Bale, who is the mother of super chaser Xylia Allen. Nova’s Guess has had a few chances to break through recently, but I’m prepared to give her another chance here tonight against a suitable field. She can jump quick enough to put herself in a winning position and will be greatly aided by the inside box.
There is not much in the way of standouts in this race and I highly doubt they can break the 23.00 mark. Nova’s Guess has only posted a slow time of 23.42, but looks capable of running 23.15 if she steps away. The main danger looks to be box three runner Ocean Prince who, based on his stewards trial, can run a solid 23.12. If he repeats that he can win.
Take the quinella and boxed exacta with these two runners.
Warragul Greyhounds Race 8 Box 3 Bit Chili Billie, 9.09pm
Tough race, but there could be a few dogs over the odds that can win. This girl flew over the 400 meter trip here a while back and can begin well enough to lead from box three. She is capable of just breaking the 26.00 mark and while she will need to do that to win, she does have the ability to do so. Boxes one, two and seven look very hard to beat and they are stronger then my selection in this.
But they may find themselves tangled up as they all look capable of jumping together. If $7.00 or more is about for Bit Chili Billie, she’s worth an each way ticket. Box two runner Mermaid Princess is probably the main danger as she’s racing in superb form and ran a fast 29.58 when being beaten last start at Sandown. She is one from one at Warragul and has recorded a fast 25.83 for the 460 meter trip. A repeat of that performance will see her go close.
