Welcome to Australian Racing Greyhound’s free Greyhound Racing Tips for Tuesday 19th May 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), 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.
Warrnambool was redeveloped in 2008 to remove much of the bias and interference that occured on the old “egg” shaped track. Unfortunately while inteference has been reduced, “transition turns” have turned the track in to a leader biased procession. In almost all races the winner comes from the greyhound in front about 50m from the boxes. Only strong railing greyhounds can make ground from behind and wide runners are decidedly disadvantaged. The red box is favoured over all distances.
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 7 – Box 1 – Blinga
Blinga failed for us last week at Warrnambool but from box 1 here tonight, should get all the favours. Previously, the Jamie Ennis trained greyhound had put togther some good wins through the Bendigo Goldrush Maiden Series before finishing 2nd to Ned’s Pedro in the final and then winning well at Geelong in 25.93. Has led practically all the way at all his wins so far and should do the same here from box 1.
Warragul Greyhounds – Race 8 – Box 1 – Jeddy Boy
Based on his 30.04 Sandown win 3 starts ago, Jeddy Boy should win this easily. Unfortunately his for is a little erratic and the only way you can get confident is drawing a line through the fact that he also had box 1 at Sandown and led all the way. Jeddy Boy is very good at or near the lead and terrible off it, having started 10 times from box 1 for 3 wins, 3 2nds and 3 3rds. Trust he’ll grow a leg from box 1 tonight.
Gosford Greyhounds – Race 3 – Box 7 – Tropic Thunder
Based on his 30.30 maiden heat win here on debut last week and his 4.46 first section, Tropic Thunder looks a moral to win this by lengths. This son of Collision ~ Cyclone Lee overcame the squeeze box 4 then, so box 7 should to pose any greater handicap.
Gosford Greyhounds – Race 6 – Box 3 – Punk Appeal
Look for a big reversal of form from Punk Appeal tonight back on his favourite track and distance. Has started 4 times here for 2 wins and a 2nd, but has been out of form and in harder grades recently at a few of those starts. Looked like a real good greyhound on the way up in his early starts and just needs to demonstrate some of that form again.
Gosford Greyhounds – Race 10 – Box 8 – Black Sensation
Black Sensation broke through at his maiden last start after putting in some very good runs for 2nd. That win was 2 weeks ago so the freshen up and return to the same track all augers well for his chances tonight. After winning his maiden from box 7 here in 30.18, leading all the way, he now moves to box 8 but offsets that with enough early pace to runa 4.47 first sectional. Should go right on with it now he has broken through.
Lismore Greyhounds – Race 5 – Box 4 – Go Wild Me
Go Wild me has been running very consistently for Brad Northfield at Casino and here and put together 2 slick wins at both tracks before running 3rd behind Skaise here last week from box 5. Has previously shown good early pace from inside boxes and with slow beginners in the 2 boxes to his inside, he should be able to hunt up early and look for the lead or be outside the leader. Has quite a bit of ability as demonstrated by his 30.18 win here and should prove too good.
Lismore Greyhounds – Race6 – Box 1 – Junior Jaydee
The obvious standout in this race, Ticode Flojo is the bets performer in this race by far and will start short odds accordingly. However at her first run here, she finds herself with a quick beginner drawn on her outside and just fancy she won’t get the easiest of runs. Juniorr Jaydee is definitely a head case, but as he proved with his last to first win over Bilko here 2 starts back, he does have a motor and is suited by drawning down on the rails. Looks as though Junior Jaydee will get a comfortaable run in transit from box 1 and can win this at big odds.
