The start of the working week, and hopefully the start of a winning streak. We have the usual 5 selections for you tonight, one at each greyhound meeting on tonight’s card.
Albion Park Greyhounds, Race 10 Box 1 Sir Hara, 9.43pm
We are gong to have to wait until the last race tonight to hopefully find a winner, so hopefully if your behind it may be able to get you out. Regular followers will be aware of Sir Hara, a dog we have selected a few times before. Finally he steps up to the longer 600m trip. He’s form is terrible but he does have a huge motor. He can really fire out at times, but is very unreliable im hoping the jump onto The turn may bring him out running. I’m echoing his trainers words here when I say, “He’s the fastest dog John Dart has trained”; but it’s hard to believe when going through his form. Every one of the 6 runners can win this race so it’s certainly a tough field. I find that some dogs will produce there best run first up over the journey. Hopefully this is the case here tonight. He’s never really posted a slashing time over 500, but watching him race you can see the step up in trip will suit. It’s a great field, and he will have to jump and lead to win. I doubt he can come from behind these and beat them. They are going to go quick and 35.30 might just be enough to win the race. Surely the fastest dog John Dart has ever trained can run that. Back with caution and I suggest only each way.
Angle Park Greyhounds, Race 1 Box 2 Awesome Surfer 6.35pm
This appears the perfect race here for Awesome Surfer. Both his wins here at Angle Park have been come from behind wins from box 5 and box 8. It’s tough for slow beginners and railers to win from wide boxes, but this bloke did it stylishly and easily in quick times of 30.06 and 30.19. He’s going to get the absolute perfect run here in behind the flying machine Smokey Assassin. He too has a great record and has also posted a very quick time. But he is very suspect in the run home and will he a sitting duck here for our selection. Awesome Surfer only needs to hold his running and clear the outside runners, to be very hard to stop in this. Smokey Assassin, to lead out early and Awesome Surfer to run him down on the line. Great multiple bet, and it looks a great betting race.
Bulli Greyhounds, Race 7 Box 1 Romantic Lad 9.08pm
A shorty here tonight a Bulli, but he looks near unbeatable from the inside draw. The more this bloke races the better he gets. In his short but brilliant career so far, he’s won on 4 different tracks, and has won 6 from 10 starts. He’s aiming for win number 7 here tonight on once again a different track. He’s made light work of worse boxes and from the rails draw he should lead all the way. 472m will be perfect for him, and as much as I look I can’t find a danger if he does everything right. He’s going to be short so maybe a multiple night he the way to go. Paddy’s Reward might run the place here in behind the favourite, with a bit of luck.
He has posted a quick 26.50 here and he may get the right drag her into the race to show his best.
Launceston Greyhounds, Race 7 Box 7 Martello Towers 9.36pm
We are going to give this bloke another chance here and he won’t get a beater chance than he has here tonight. Box 7 will be ok, but he will need to navigate his way through them early. He’s the best and quickest runner in the fields but a little out of form. He was a fair bit unlucky last time out and he looked the winner then. So we are going to select him here again to to tonight and hops he gets the luck go his way. He’s likely to be one of the favourite’s, but $3.00 will be around the right price. I won’t be backing him if he starts any shorter.
Shepparton Greyhound, Race 6 Box 1 Five Percent 8.46pm
I really like the chances of Five Percent here in this tonight. There’s nothing that stands out as the leader and she looks a big chance here. Her winning record is poor and that worries me a bit, but she looks the one in a race of ordinary ability. She has plenty of early toe, but isn’t always reliable, and likes to gain clear room on order to unwind. The box 2 runner can also begin on his day, and if he happens to pressure our section early I think she may give it away. But if she jumps and does everything right she’s going to be mighty hard to stop. We are relying on her jumping, so we will know out fate a box rise. She has a habit of running a place so eachway is the way to go here.
Best Of Luck.
