Welcome to Australian Racing Greyhound’s free Greyhound Racing Tips for Friday 24th April 2009 with Tips tonight from Geelong (Victoria), Richmond (New South Wales) and selected races from Mandurah (West Australia).
With tonights Greyhound Racing coming from Geelong (Victoria), Richmond (New South Wales) and selected races from Mandurah (West Australia), lets just recap betting advice for those tracks.
Geelong is considered to be a safe punting track especially over the 457m distance. The 347m starts are usually plagued by interference and terrible betting races, box 1 is an advantage and box 3 has a godd record of this trip.
The few 600m races run can produce good results but the short run to 1st corner has caused more than one betting plunge to go astray and does give an advantage to the box 1 runner. Over the 457m boxes 1 and 8 both share favouritism with the next most preferred draw box 7.
Richmond has always been a hot bed of greyhound betting activity, both good and bad; and it has always paid to follow educated money in most races at Richmond. The track has undergone some changes in recent years but the 535m races are genrally safe betting events as most dogs will get their chance in the run. Richmond races over the 313m and 400m distances and these should be avoided as betting options. If you must bet, boxes 1 and 2 over the 313m and box 1 over the 400m journey are massive advantages. The inside 3 boxes are only slightly favoured in the 535m races and again the inside 3 boxes are slightly favoured over the longer 717m distance. Over the 618 box 1 can be an advantage with box 2 next best.
Mandurah can be a punters graveyard, the 492m distance, 647m distance and the 302m distances are corner starts and even the 405m start is only a short run before the corner. Good beginners are decidedly advantaged as are the red boxes over all 3 shorter distances. In the 302m races box 1 is a huge advantage and the same box features as prominently over the 405m, although the inside 4 boxes all perform well. Over the 492 distance box 1 is again a big advantage as is box 2. Over the 647m there is a very slight preference to the squeeze boxes, 3,4,5 and 6 but it is marginal.
Geelong Greyhounds – Race 6 – Box 1 – Next Top Model
Next Top Model was very impressive second up in Victoria winning at Sandown in 29.83 and gapping them by 6.25 lengths. That for is well and truly good enough to win this from box 1. Won’t be flash odds but won’t lose either.
Geelong Greyhounds – Race 7 – Box 2 – Corretja
Corretja is only the vetran of 2 starts but going by his 25.84 win here last week, he may well be above average. This field is not strong and being locally trained by Angela Langton, he is sure to benefit from local knowledge. Should be able to lead as he did last week and prove difficult to run down.
Geelong Greyhounds – Race 8 – Box 5 – Taipan Bale
It’s impossibel to tip against Taipan Bale who has now won 5 races in a row including the Group 2 Bendigo Cup. Followed that by a 21.86 best of night win at Shepparton on Monday and should be able to do the same again tonight.
Richmond Greyhounds – Race 2 – Box 2 – Brislane
The track and distance looks ideal here for Richie Dean’s Brislane who should get every opportunity witht he vacant box to her outside. Raced very well through the Easter Egg series flying home atevery run without winning and looks as though this middle distance will suit perfectly.
Richmond Greyhounds – Race 5 – Box 7 – Facial
Facial fell last start but previously put 2 good wins back to here and at Canberra. Won here in 36.08 and might well have to go a little quicker to win against this more than handy field, but box 7 suits ideally and should get the right run at odds.
Richmond Greyhounds – Race 6 – Box 1 – Yorklea Tiger
Yorklea Tiger was going quicker on the line here last week that at any other point in the race behinfd flying Bells Pace and just needs a little luck early to obtain the right run. Has won here in 30.80 and with no Bells Pace in this tonight should get his turn from box 1.
