A big day of racing at Angle Park today, with heats of the Breeders Prelude. Every heat has a sub 30.00 second dog engaged and there looks to be a couple of genuine hopes in most races. While a few stand out in each field, punters will find it tough to find the outright winners. Sidney’s Shadow, a daughter of Mogambo and Alana blues, is in red hot form and should be setting the time standard for the day after posting a flying 29.56 a couple of starts back against far better opposition. She is one of many runners today for Cameron Butcher.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 10 Box 1 Cairnlea Layla, 4.16pm
This girl posted a scorching 29.77 stewards trial here nearly a month ago today. While she’s yet to win in two starts since, she’s been putting in some solid runs. Box one is perfect for her today and she should make every post a winner.
There’s moderate speed drawn around and I expect her to punch up early and take the early lead. Once she hits the front she should repeat her 29.77 stewards trial. The daughter of Mogambo has posted some fast times in Victoria and there’s no doubt she’ll knock up winning a few here. The main danger looks to be her litter mate in Cairnlea Ethan, who is just as talented and looks a huge threat if he pings and gets across early. Box six will make it super hard for him and I highly doubt he can beat his sister from the gun draw.
Cairnlea Ethan won’t be a huge price, but even money should be about and she looks the one.
Great bet and maybe worth the exacta.
Albion Park Greyhounds Race 4 Box 1 Abundia Flyer, 3.44pm
This girl can run but must be quite injury prone. She’s only had 23 starts and while that’s only netted the one win, she’s much quicker then her form suggests. Box one is a huge advantage over the 395 meter trip and she should use the box to perfection. This is her first run in nearly a year and while that does put me off, I think she will start at a huge price.
Her last four starts have been over the longer 520m trip, but disregard that year old form. Her only win has been here in a solid 23.04. If she is to ever win another race then this looks the perfect opportunity against a average field.
Señor Beach looks the main winning option and he’s in great form, winning his last two race starts here at Albion Park over the 331m trip. But he’s no certainty and huge odds could be had about Abundia Flyer.
Cannington Greyhounds Race 7 Box 8 Regal Patch, 11.37pm
This race looks a match race between two dogs, box two runner Coxie, and box eight runner Regal Patch. Both dogs have been racing consistently and will look to head straight to the front from the get go. Coxie has a best time of 30.72 with a 5.80 first section and Regal Patch has a best time of 30.78 with a 5.79 first section. There is basically nothing between them, so who ever gets out first with the clearer run looks the likely winner. Box seven runner Redod Roxy should jump and drag Regal Patch across.
This is Regal Patch’s third attempt here, so she should be primed and ready to win with a coupe of starts under her belt. Punters looking to take exotics could try anchoring boxes two and eight.
