Albion Park Greyhounds, Race 10 Box 7 Beau Ryan 9.52pm
Once again we have to wait ’til the last race here to hopefully back a winner. Beau Ryan was our selection in the QLD Derby heats, where he finished well back. I selected him in the derby so of course were going to stick with him in a 5th grade. It’s certainly a race with many chances, and you could make a case for a few of them. But Beau Ryan although his form is poor, does have a certain amount of ability. I’m not to sure how he will handle box 7, but he certainly can get along. If he comes out and gains clear running, we might see how good he is. His trainer has an opinion of him, and he’s going to be a good price here tonight. Each way chance from a tricky box draw.
Angle Park Greyhounds, Race 8 Box 1 Deadly Impact 9.41pm
Tough race here, with plenty of speed and strength. Deadly Impact although a very talented chaser, is as moody as they come; however of late he’s been racing really consistently, something he’s not use to doing. He usually wins or goes terrible, but he’s showing plenty of fight lately, and from the perfect draw here, he can certainly skip away to win this. No runner can make a mistake, but Deadly Impact can jump and push hard around the first turn, and hold them out. If he can do this he’s won the first battle. The second battle will be holding off the powerful Linguist, who has in the last 6 months become a formidable force at Angle Park. He can win this Deadly Impact and looks a great chance here.
Dapto Greyhounds, Race 7 Box 2 Salt Mate Blue, 9.38pm
Another dog who can also be moody – Salt Mate Blue, strung a couple together lately, but it was touch and go there for a while. She’s pretty consistent around the Dapto circuit here and has early toe. Although she has a PB of 30.22 she is yet to win here in this time. It’s not overly tough, and she should jump and roll along in front. She cannot make any mistakes and will be 5-1 here. Boxes 5,6,7,8 can all threaten here but it’s quite hard to with out which one will get down from the outside and get across. Maybe a standout trifecta might be the way to go, banker the 2, from 5,6,7,8.
Hobart Greyhounds, Race 4 Box 1, Gracie, 8.41pm
Gracie looks a moral to win here tonight from box 1 against this field. There will be no value in backing her straight out but, Hellyeah Trish looks to me to be the outright second pick. Gracie loves the inside box and should spear out and lead all the way here. Hellyeah Trish, will be afforded no such luxury and will need to navigate her way through the field here. These two look the standouts and a exacta or multiple might be the best value here in this. Gracie to win Hellyeah Trish second.
Sandown Greyhounds, Race 2 Box 6 Pumped Up Zarr, 7.25pm
The recent addition to the Kel Greenough kennel Pumped up Zarr, will no doubt win one very soon here in Victoria. Box 6 isn’t the ideal draw and he may struggle to get across here early. He does have a big motor, and only needs a clear run here in this to assert some authority. His run here last week was terrific and he may position himself a little closer here tonight. Theirs no doubt he can run the time it will take to win this. It will all boil down to a clear run and a little luck in running. Huge chance.
Best of Luck
