Greyhound racing

Race 1 – TAB Venue Mode 520m Novice

dogs are in great form at the moment, and Hara's Herbie looks a good chance to salute in this race. That combination will be hard to beat here from box two. The yellow rug is the danger in Hara's Reign. Not flash early but will be running on. Galway Governor is slow early but should improve over the 520m and can figure. Whoosh Car won well here on the March 12 and is a chance to string two wins together. It is an open race, and a boxed trifecta might provide good value with the top four selections.

Race 2 – Sky Racing 520m M5

Major Blip found the line first at his last start here on March 12 and looks set to go back-to-back in what looks like a similar class field. Seductive Avatar drawn outside can follow across and is the logical danger. Winner of 10 races from 39 starts and can figure even though it is having its first try at this track and distance. Flying Jet can lead again from box six and will strip fitter after weakening second up here on the March 12 behind Major Blip. Bonomel for Jeff Crawford can also be competitive and has been placed in more than half its starts. Another good value race and a boxed trifecta might be the way to profit from this race.

Race 3 – Ipswichgreyhounds.com 630m 5th Grade

Dundee Ember was impressive when finding the line last start and can repeat the dose here from box one. Magic Prince for Raymond Burman is the danger. The black dog has won 32 percent of its 41 starts and is the obvious threat. for has four wins over this track and distance and that stat alone makes it hard to beat. Eye Catching can also figure here.

Race 4 – Dover & Sons 630m 5th Grade

Another 630m grade 5 race and Glittering Zac can repeat its dead heat win here on February 19 where it jumped up to the 630m after its previous four starts were over the 366m at . That was a great training effort by Casey Dargusch. Should be even fitter now and the kennel have their own trial track that can prove a big advantage when a lot of other dogs missed gallops during the floods.

Out of Line is the obvious danger and box seven will suit. Strong winner here over the same distance on March 10. Eamon Mac was second to Out of Line and is trained by the master mentor in . Good record at the track and distance. was the other dead heater with Glittering Zac and will certainly be competitive but has never won from box four.

Race 5 – GJ Walsh & Co 520m 5th Grade

State of Rage looks a good thing this time around from the ideal box one. Bold Hornet had the red rug last start when it finished in front of State of Rage on March 12. I am prepared to risk from box seven this time. High Torque can run a race here from box 6 being fresh from its last start at on February 17. She's So Gnarley has a good record at the track and distance.

Race 6 – Ipswichgreyhounds.com 520m 5th Grade

Strategise has the runs on the board with four wins and one placing at this track and distance. Jedda Cutlack on fire. Great to see this young lady trainer kicking so many goals. It goes on top. The dangers come from outside boxes in five, six and seven. Rochill Lady can improve here second up and Fernando Travis stepping up to the 520m can place. Old Money was a good second at big odds and can go on with it here.

Race 7 – Bodhi Ink Tattoo Gallery 520m 4th/5th Grade

With several , this is a tough five-dog race to pick. Light My Flyer has a good record here and is an obvious threat from the red box. Fernando Blaze has won in quick time at Albion Park and can carry that across here. Dulceria best of the rest.

Race 8 – Garrard's Horse & Hound 520m Best 8

Tonight's best eight has only seven runners, but still a good open race. Extra Malt was a fast winner here on March 10 in a slick 30.11. ran 30.09 on the same night and has won five from seven at the track and distance. The two lady trainers to fight this one out with Extra Malt getting the nod because of the box draw advantage of one. Magical Cyndie back up to the 520m after a slick 16.80 run here over the 288m sprint distance. So to complete the trifecta for the ladies. So why not the first four with the Serena Lawrance-trained Power Moves.

Race 9 – Ipswichgreyhounds.com 520m 5th Grade

Big Boy Benji back to the 520m can lead all the way here from box three. Last start third over the longer 630m was a good run after leading early. That is good enough to win this. She's Got Moves has the red rug and that alone can see it be hard to beat again. Was placed from the same box at big odds back on the March 8. Bust A Move has been going well at Albion Park over the shorter distances, can it step up to the harder 520m. Moment of Glory the best of the rest.

Race 10 – Garrard's Horse & Hound 520m M5

The old dogs do battle here in the last with $5,200 to the winner. How good is that. Great prizemoney for our seniors who just love to race. Very open so we should look for value. Madam Waltz won here recently over the 431m in 25.23 and has been placed twice at this distance. Blackpool Amour has placed in half of all its 88 starts, so can be competitive. Night Shift placed here on March 12 from box one, this is no harder. Sassy Gossip can place at good odds.
