GREYHOUND Racing returns to The Meadows on Saturday night with the Great Eight Series special event race looking to be the race of the night.
Aston Velvet for Michelle Mallia will start favourite with greyhound bookmakers in that race and be very hard to beat from box two.
Race one at the Meadows starts us off at 6:39pm with Team Dailly showing a strong hand, while the last race will be running at 10:19pm.
Here are our The Meadows tips & best bets for June 25, 2022.
BEST BET: PLAN AHEAD (race seven)
THIS son of Fernando Bale x Art Noveau has been in the money 40 of her 62 starts and comes back to a winnable race after bumping into Ferdinand Boy at Ballarat last week (7th). Before that race it was two good wins after settling on speed and we think the blue dog can jump well and win again. His win at Warrnambool on May 5 was full of class and box three should be no problems. Rebel Riot from box eight may lead him, but we think he can get it late. If even money is around with greyhound betting sites then we think that will be reasonable odds.
Race 7 – Plan Ahead (4)
Form: 23117 | Career: 62: 12-13-15 | Trainer: Angela Langton
NEXT BEST: MY ADDICTION (race two)
FROM box three we think this greyhound can cross the inside runners in boxes one and two and lead this race.
For Justin Nolan of Devon Meadows, the black dog got there in a tight photo finish at Sandown Park last start after leading.
We actually think, if he doesn’t lead, he can’t win, so the first 100m is important.
He missed the start at Sandown Park on May 5 and battled on for fifth but before that he settled in the top two and remained there, again at Sandown Park. His form and this track and distance isn’t great so we don’t want to back him if he starts favourite, but we don’t think he will.
Race 2 – My Addiction (3)
Form: 412252 | Career: 10: 2-2-1 | Trainer: Justin Nolan
VALUE BET: BOO BOO BILLY (race nine)
FOR David Burnett, this dog put in a good two starts back from the same box (one) and we think he may start third favourite and be value. Then last start from box two he ran 30.26 here for a second and we just feel he is primed to finish top two again. He has placed on both occasions from this box and does have early speed. Kelsey Bale (box six) will start around even money with online bookmakers and has to be respected despite not having won its last five outings. It has an inside box next to it which may help and we think it’s down to these two.
Race 9 – Boo Boo Billy (1)
Form: 21732 | Career: 12: 3-2-2 | Trainer: David Burnett
