I thought the threat of a track record run may come from Nosey Rozy at Bulli last night, but Xylia Allen was simply breathtaking in the Launceston Cup last night.
After trailing the early lead she burst away in the straight to lower her own record she set the previuos week by more than 4 lengths, running a stunning 29.09 !!!
I’ve always had a huge opinion of this bitch and now she’s putting it all together. Xylia Allen will be a force to be reckoned with in the future.
Ipswich Greyhounds, Race 5 Box 6 Simmerly 4.17pm Qld time
Plenty of winners on today’s cards at Ipswich, but a tough day to find a little value. So we’re going to have to back a good dog off a bad box to increase the odds a little. And Simmerly looks that dog in race 5. Really honest bitch who is back from a go at the national Futurity where she finished unplaced in here heat. Should have no problems defeating this field here today. Has great early toe and is a reliable beginner. The 4 dogs drawn inside her are all slow beginners and this will allow her to jump and run. She should be a couple in front rounding the first turn. The best parts of her race are the first and second sectionals. And if she jumps and runs this race should be over passing the 600 boxes. Should easily break 31.00 and from the front that will win this. Great bet.
Gawler Greyhounds. Race 9 Box. 4 Tartuffe 3.12pm Vic Time
Very fast little bitch, who was one of the favorites in the S.A sprint Championship heats. But seems to race best when her confidence is up. Has poor form of late but this looks a race for her to regain her confidence. Am I’m guessing Her trainer Karen Bearpark has brought her he for exactly that. A confidence boost. She’s quite capable of running very slick time having allready won at Angle Park in 29.84. Has only a slow 31.27 here after 8 attempts, but theirs no doubt she can go alot quicker.
Is drawn in the middle here and theirs very little speed around her. The straighter start here at Gawler will suit and allow her to muster. If she can jump and muster from the get go she looks mighty hard to beat in this. Big Chance.
Devonport Greyhounds. Race 2 Box 8 Silent Giggle. 1.04pm Nsw time.
A 580m heat of the distance Championship here and Silent Giggle looks a great chance having drawn well here. Very versatile bitch who has no problems mixing here distances week in week out. Is the winner of 18 races and looks set to rack up win number 19 here. Should jump and sit out wide here on the track and as long as they dont skip too far away early she should be finishing off her race very hard. She needs to head a couple of her rivals early but if she does she looks a great chance in this.
Lismore Greyhounds. Race 4 Box 6. Bralyn Sharkie, 7.41pm Nsw time
Local trainer Bop Bop, (Brad Northfield) rugs up his first starter here, and the son of Collision is coming of a great performance trial of 30.35 for the 520m distance. And theirs no doubt a repeat of that performance will easily win this. Has come up with box 6, which makes it very hard. But Brads young dogs are going really well at Lismore and I’m hoping this bloke can continue that trend. His main danger looks to be the well drawn Last Mail. Who looks as if the extra distance will suit. Last Mail and Bralyn Sharkie look set to fight this one out.
Gosford Greyhounds, Race 6 Box 1 El Grover 8.39pm Nsw time
Tough 600m race here tonight with 3 genuine winning chances. I like to select dogs from good boxes however a couple of runners are perfectly boxed in this. I’m going to go with El Grover he’s the class runner of the field and is coming of a great Second 3 starts back from a wide box over 600 at Dapto. Where he chased gamely all the way.Has no trouble running out the 600 and from the inside looks as if he will boot up early and take running down. Only needs Bit Elite or Star Sapphire to make a little mistake, or cop a little check in running to run away with this. Great chance from the inside and looks a super winning chance. Boots up hits the lead and wins. Great chance.
Warragul Greyhounds. Race 11 Box 2 Frame. 10.09pm Vic time
Another shorty here tonight to end the night at Warragul, but it’s the one I like the most here tonight. Frame has been a bit hit and miss lately. And if that run continues it suggest she wins this. Has good early toe and should be able to hold a forward spot early on. If she can do this and balance up she will be mighty hard to beat. Penny Allen loos the main danger here but I’m hoping Frame is able to lead Penny early on and if she can she should be too strong in the run home for Penny Allen. Has a great winning record and generally wins or runs nowhere. If they head her early she may turn it up, so win bet only for this girl, although there’s very little in the race.
Best of luck
