Another start to the working week and Monday always brings around a great night of racing, with meetings from Albion Park in Queensland, Angle Park from South Australia, Launceston from Tasmania, Bulli from New South Wales, and Shepparton in Victoria
Albion Park Greyhounds, Race 6 Box 8 Crescent Andy, 8.24 pm QLD time
The ex northern rivers trainer, Crescent Andy, looks to be working up to a win. With success over the staying trip at Tweed Heads, you would think the shorter 500m distance would be of no concern to him. But he does struggle a little in the final stages, so he needs to get to the front early. Something he has been unable to lately. From box 8 he will get l plenty of room here to move.He went well last start from the same box, but I can’t see the field going quicker then 30.45 odd. That’s about what Crescent Andy can go. He needs slow pace but, if he can jump and begin well, stay out of trouble, around the first turn, look for him to be challenging for the win here. Each Way bet.
Angle Park Greyhounds Race 6 Box 8 Totally Tango, 8.18 pm Vic time
The daughter of Premier Fantasy, has been a little off the boil of late but she has drawn well here. A couple of starts back she took on the states best stayer in Abdon Bale, and only went down by 3 lengths. He’s not in this tonight but the inform Dyna Daina is. Both dogs have great early toe and they will both look for the early lead. Totally Tango has a slightly quicker PB of 35.25, but there is very little between the two of them in the run home. It will be all down to who can take up the early lead and break away mid race. From box 8 I’m hoping Totally Tango can do this with clear running early. Appears a match race, if they can both jump cleanly.
Bulli Greyhounds, Race 7 Box 2 Dawn Knows Best, 9.12pm NSW time
Tough race here with a few more chances then it may appear. Dawn Knows Best looks the best of then for mine. But as I said there are may chances, and the very fast Midnight News, is one of them. This girl has a huge motor, and is a real danger with a little luck. Durbidge is also a chance if they jam up a little. Dawn Knows Best, is going fantastic at the moment and the step up should be of no concern. The big open track may be of concern but she loves it here. She should go straight to the lead early in this, and gain clear galloping room all the way. Expect her to begin and lead from go to whoa. She’s no certainty, with some fast dogs also engaged, but expect her to go really well here tonight.
Launceston Greyhounds, Race 7 Box 2 Paper Trail, 9.41 pm Nsw time
The Autumn Distance Championship is one of the headline acts on tonights card. Before last weeks heats Cheetah Zorro appeared to have Astra Zeneca hold on the race. But we gave you the tip on Paper Trail, who unexpectedly flogged Cheetah Zorro. I’ve always has my doubts about Cheetah Zorro over the final stages of the staying trip. She just seems to find the last 70m a bit tough. Paper Trail, has the quickest PB here and looks perfectly placed here again to win the final. Boxed around some slow beginners, she should position up just behind the early speed, and finish to good for them here. Cheetah Zorro is not without a wining chance. If she pings and leads, she is sure to strip a little fitter after last weeks run, and she only needs them to jam up a little, to pinch this tonight. Paper Trail the inform greyhound with the time on the board.
Shepparton Greyhounds, Race 11 Box 4 Stylish Lizbeth 10.30 pm Vic Time
This girl has a huge motor. The daughter of the ever consistent Elite State has had little luck of late, after scorching around at Ballarat 5 starts ago, running best of the night figures. She’s not well boxed here in the middle, but I’m hoping this will allow for some value. She needs a little room to move and this is paramount to her winning. When she hits her straps, she has a huge motor and only needs clear running to blow these away. The problem is will she get it. Don’t take short odds, about $5 should be the right price. Each way.
Well a few nice selections there for you to place your hard earned on. We are quietly confident of a successful night and lets hope for the best.
Best of Luck
