Some quality chasers are engaged tonight and keen followers should keep there eye on one runner in particular at Bulli. Kevlarr, a son of Spring Gun, is having his first race start in race 1 at 7.05pm after breaking the 400 metre Bulli record in a trial running 22.18. He looks a superstar in the making and all eyes will be on him.
Bulli Greyhounds Race 4 Box 2 Zipping Coco, 8.05pm
This girl was well supported on debut and demonstrated she has a bright future ahead of her. A daughter of new sire on the block Smooth Fancy, Zipping Coco was bred by leading breeder Marty Hallinan and is having only her second race start. She was beaten by only 1.5 lengths in her first start at Maitland and should improve second time out here tonight. It doesn’t appear box one runner Hurricane Ted has a great deal of early speed, so this should allow Zipping Coco to zip across onto the rail. She should find improvement and based on a 25.65 run at Maitland, she should be capable of running 26.50 to 26.60 here at Bulli.
Zipping Coco is likely to start second favourite behind Paperbond, who performance trialled here in a slick 26.42. He looks a young pup that’s above average and should be hard to beat. Box six runner Issac Sannette looks the only other likely winner. He’s by boom sire Bekim Bale and certainly has talent, but generally speaking the Bekim Bale progeny are usually average beginners. Having drawn box six he’s likely to be chasing a few bums early, so I’m prepared to watch him go around. Zipping Coco has a little more experience and should be $5.00 or better.
Cannington Greyhounds Race 6 Box 3 Ethernet, 10.12pm
Great race to have a bet in here and Ethernet looks the winner. The key to this race is the speedy Last Day who is trained by the Robartson’s. Last Day is a son of champion stayer Dashing Corsair and is as speedy as they come over the first 450 of a race but really struggles beyond that. He should ping and fly out of the boxes and set up the race for Ethernet who should be trailing him a few lengths behind.
Ethernet has proven she can run time and has a PB here of 30.51, however the daughter of Where’s Pedro was pretty disappointing last start but had excuse in the run. She is second up here tonight and should be primed and ready to return to the winners circle. I’m quietly confident punters can leave Last Day out of the top 2 here as long as they don’t jam up in behind him and he skips away.
Box seven runner Oxley Delight can also get the job done but she will need to come away well and land herself in the top three to four early. She to has a great PB and can be included as a winning hope.
Back Ethernet and Oxley Delight and lay Last Day in the multiples. Sensational race to speculate and take advantage of the $100 in free bets at Sportingbet for a $30 deposit.
Rockhampton Greyhounds Race 6 Box 1 Golden Glory 8.35pm
Its not too often I pick one out at Rockhampton, but with the way I’ve been going lately I’ll try a new venue. Most of my dangers are beating my on top selections of late but this fellow should represent value and can turn it around for me. He has won here in 29.84 before and while he’s not in that form lately, he is capable of going close to that if he begins.
His chances hinge on him beginning and putting himself into the race, but with ordinary beginners around he can push forward from the start. He finds his best form on the lure, so have a go at backing him if he’s $4.00 or more. Box two runner Never A Drama is owned by ARG writer Jacob and partners and can bounce back here and should be kept very safe.
He too is another runner who can turn it around if he gets forward and finds the lure. Lois Faye is badly out of form at present, but has a big finish and if she lobs in behind and gets a crack, look for her to be coming really hard near the line, rough chance who could be huge odds.
Best of Luck
