Welcome to Australian Racing Greyhound’s Greyhound Racing Tips for Wednesday 9th September 2009 with Tips tonight from Ballarat (Victoria), Warrnambool (Victoria), The Gardens (New South Wales), Ipswich (Queensland), and Cannington (West Australia).
With tonight’s racing coming Ballarat (Victoria), Warrnambool (Victoria), The Gardens (New South Wales), Ipswich (Queensland), and Cannington (West Australia), lets review our betting advice for those tracks.
Ballarat is one of the fairest one turn tracks in the country and in general punters can bet with confidence over all distances, although inside boxes are slightly favoured and the 8 box races well off the 450m start. The track suits both speedy and strong greyhounds.
Warrnambool was redeveloped in 2008 to remove much of the bias and interference that occurred on the old “egg” shaped track. Unfortunately while interference 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.
The Gardens is one of New South Wales’ newest tracks and now the sole home of the NSW NCA. The track strongly favours early speed dogs but the 413m races should be avoided at all costs as they are decided more by interference than ability.The 515m races are worth betting on but the inside 3 boxes are all favoured and even good dogs will find it hard to cross from wide draws. The 600m trip, being a corner, start can often pose a difficult greyhound betting option and the inside box is a huge advantage. Few races are run over the 715m journey.
Ipswich can be a punters graveyard and as a general rule punters avoid investing in the 431m races unless you are laying them on Betfair, as the corner starts throws up many unlikely winners and lots of interference. If you must bet on these races, box 1 wins almost twice as many races as every other box with the exception of the second best box, box 2. The 520m races are a little more even, but have a decided bias toward the four inside boxes due to the short run to the corner and even class greyhounds find it hard to win from wide boxes. The 630m races are another corner start.
Cannington is one of the better two tracks which does tend to give greyhounds off the speed a chance to run on. Both the 530m, and 642m distances favour the inside boxes and the 1 box has a slight advantage over the 715m distance. The 297m races,starting at the top of the back straight, runs reasonably fairly, although box 1 is an advantage. The four inside boxes are advantaged over the 530m, the three inside boxes over the 642m and the 715m races reasonably evenly.
Ballarat Greyhounds – Race 5 – Box 8 – Sheza Burst
Sheza Burst gets her box here and and going on her last start win at Bendigo in 24.36, shouldn’t have too much trouble picking up this race. Can be very disappointing but comes from a very speedy line and just needs a clear run early. Has started here twice for just the 1 second but is well down in grade on her last run here behind Silent Guardian.
Ballarat Greyhounds – Race 7 – Box 1 – Signor Casanova
Signor Casanova is well boxed and has enough talent to win this but has a nasty habit of running second. Last start win from this box at Traralgon adds confidence as it was a very handy 30.04 all the way effort, just .02 outside the best of the night. The one win here was a flying 25.15 effort so go on that.
Warrnambool Greyhounds – Race 10 – Box 4 – Arapaho Boy
Go on Arapaho Boy’s all the way win in 22.47 from box 2 here on debut. Had to move out to box 5 to last week and had no luck. Box 4 not much better, but very speedy greyhound who has tons of early pace and can lead again despite the box.
The Gardens Greyhounds – Race 7 – Box 8 – Paua To Ignite
Paua To Ignite is drawn ideally for her out in the widest box and has started 3 times from box 8 for 2 wins which have been her only career wins to date from 9 starts. By Brett Lee~Paua To Burn she is entitled to inherit a little pace somewhere and both Maitland career wins were nice efforts. Has to cross over on this track which may be an issue but is potentially capable of much more than the rest of these.
Ipswich Greyhounds – Race 8 – Box 8 – High Earner
Best greyhound in the race who is definitely a Derby specialist. This isn’t the same class race as the two previous Derbies and perennial runner up in those Derbies Dashing Corsair won the National Sprint Championship last weekend, which is more than a good form line. High Earner should be winning this by panels.
