Girl power to reign supreme tonight with Wentworth Park headlining tonight’s racing with the final of the Betfair Stayers Cup over 720m, and the heats of the Ladies Bracelet. Its a night dominated by the female sex, with the majority of major race runners female. Girl power they say!
I’ve been singing the tune of little Bell Haven in the Stayers Cup all week,and she’s my best bet for the night.
Wentworth Park Greyhounds, Race 8 Box 2 Bell Haven 8.27pm
Fantastic staying event with 4 main Chances. I’m going to steer the way some other people have chosen, and go with the mighty Bell Haven. She hasn’t been going as well as she can go, but I still don’t think she’s racing below her best. She’s just had a few things go against her and been a little unlucky. From box 2 here tonight she’s going to get a fantastic run in behind the early leader Irma Bale. Last week she was knocked about, and lost plenty of ground at the start of the race but she still finished on, to run a close 4th. I doubt whether she’s going to have to endure the same fate this week, and she looks a great winning chance here in this. She should follow early leader Irma Bale, and be within striking distance in the final 150. Fancy Liza will be the danger, but she’s going to have to work a lot harder, and will have to come from behind to win. I doubt whether she can run over the top of Bel Haven late in the piece. It’s a race that can go one or two ways – if Irma Bale leads and leads comfortably, then it will take Bell Haven a while to collar her and this will make it hard for Fancy Liza; if Bell haven collars Irma Bale early, I think Fancy’s Liza’s chance is increased. I expect Irma Bale to be right in this to the final 60m and if this occurs, Bell Haven looks the goods. Great Bet!
The Meadows Greyhounds, Race 5 Box 3 Xenos Bale, 8.40pm
Great win last start by the youngster and he looks to be getting back to his best. This is not a hard race, and from box 3 he looks a good thing here for mine. The Sydneysider Gotta be Fancy should be the early leader, and Xenos Bale will get the camp in behind her early. He can jump and does go well here with a PB of 30.09. He looks a great bet, if he can position himself around 2nd or third, and by doing so he should be able to run down the early leaders. Each way bet.
Cannington Greyhounds, Race 5 Box 3 On Coin
This bloke is everyone’s tip here in the Sandi’s Me Mum Memorial. He has the 3rd quickest PB ever only behind the great Miata, and his run he last week was outstanding. I expected the young gun to win and win easily, but the old boy Vocal Enforcer was having none of that and decided to make the young gun with hard to win. After beginning reasonable he looked to get off the track initially, but was held in rounding the first turn. Bunched up he looked as if he was going to get sandwiched right up and get spat out the back; but to the young guns credit he pushed hard and rallied to race right away in the end to score. It was a terrific effort for such a young dog, he really showed his class. The final here looks no harder and with a great jump he may give the mighty record a shake.
Best of Luck
