Welcome to Australian Racing Greyhound’s Greyhound Racing Tips for Tuesday 18th August 2009 with Tips tonight from Tips tonight from Albion Park (Queensland), Gosford (New South Wales), Lismore (New South Wales), Warragul (Victoria) and Mandurah (West Australia).
With racing tonight from Albion Park (Queensland), Ipswich (Queensland), Gosford (New South Wales), Lismore (New South Wales), Warragul (Victoria) and Mandurah (West Australia), lets review our track advice for those tracks.
Albion Park was the first track in Australia to move to the finish-on lure system and it is definitely the better of the two Queensland TAB tracks. A lack of depth in a lot of races can cause upsets at Albion Park when favourites are over-rated or suffer interference. Tread warily when betting on the corner start 600m races; and the 700m races will often throw up odds-on favourites that have alot of weakness about them. The 395m races are out and go affairs that, like all corner starts, are hazards to your punting dollar.
Gosford was rebuilt in the 90’s to replicate the Angle park track layout and that’s exactly what they got. A leader biased track that favours the inside boxes over all distances. The 400m races shjould ber avoided where possible as they are a corner start dominated by intereference. The 515m start is heavily biased to ward the insde four boxes (just like Angle Park) due to the short run to the corner and the fact the boxes are a long way off the track. The 600m starts again favour the inside four boxes and as a corner start punters need to identify leaders or good field dogs. There are very few races run over the 731m distance.
Lismore is almost circular in shape and consequently has two corner starts over the 420m and 635m starts, with box 1 heavily favoured over 420m and box 2 an absolute standout advantage over the 635m. The 520m start advantages the two inside boxes with box 8 next in preference. Again very few 722m races are held but the two inside boxes are advantaged due to the fact that it is very hard to make ground out wide and railers with early pace are advantaged over all distances.
Warragul race over only two distances, the 424m and the 699m journeys. The track is a leader biased track that strongly favours the red box runners over the 424m trip with more than 20% of winners exiting that box. Often plagued by interference in the curving back straight and entering the corner, the eight box is the next best as it is drawn to miss most of the rouble. There are very few races run over the 699m.
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.
Warragul Greyhounds – Race 8 – Box 1 – Major Slick
Major Slick won 3 starts back at Sale beating Our Wilbur in 25.03 (24.99 best) so we know he is goign better than recent form would suggest. had box one on that occassion and has only ever lost one race in 5 starts from the box. Has the red tonight and having already won 4 races here at Warragul is the best of good things.
Gosford Greyhounds – Race 6 – Box 3 – Devine Ruler
Monamour will start almost odds on in this from box 1 but Devine Ruler (not Road) was our selection last week and pinged the lids running a 4.42 first section and going right on with the job running 30.32 overall. A repeat of that effort will see him leand again and if that happens doubt there is anything in this that will run him down. Has started 3 times from box 3 for 2 wins so handles the box.
Lismore Greyhounds – Race 6 – Box 3 – Allegro Belle
The Reg Gardoll trained Allegro Belle returns to the scene of her commanding maiden win by 9.25 lengths in 30.63. Didn’t fire last start at Albion Park but back here at Lismore don’t be surprised if she finds that maidne form back here at Lismore. Quick enough early to lead this.
Lismore Greyhounds – Race 10 – Box 2 – Dark Mariner
The Denise Robinson trained Dark Mariner is another of the Collision ~ Malawi’s Marina litter and has pace to burn. Led and got caught here last week by Go Wild Me and is drawn to lead again. Is yet to win over this distance but with a moderate beginner drawn to his outside should get every chance to ping the lids and lead throughout.
