Wentworth Park betting tips & quaddie | Wednesday, March 29
Wednesday night at Wentworth Park plays host to five heats of the $40,000-to-the-winner Magic Maiden series and six heats of the Group 3 New Sensation series for age-restricted greyhounds. Lots of future superstars will be on show, and there will be lots of winners to be found. Here's hoping it's an extraordinary night of greyhound racing. Good luck to all connections involved, and hopefully we can steer you towards a couple of good results.
Best Bet: One Hot Bandit (Race 2)
This debutant son of Barcia Bale and Subawa Ngurah's top brood bitch Nino De Oro has a bloodline bred in the purple and will no doubt be a short-priced favourite in this race. Trained by the all-conquering Lord team and owned by their daughter Grace, this boy has been held back for this race. He will appreciate the room to move early from box eight. However, box eight can be fraught with danger in these races if you don't get across and into a handy position going into the first turn. This boy is sure to be well schooled and ready for this, and you would expect nothing more from NSW's leading trainers.
Danger: Spring Whiskey
Must be considered the danger courtesy of the inside box, and the fact that his mum won here twice out of 31 career triumphs. Must be considered a chance and sometimes these races can turn into a lottery.

Next Best Bet: Palawa King (Race 11)
Jack Smith will rug up Palawa King in the last race of the night. At present, this boy is probably the strongest finisher in greyhound racing over the sprint distance. He has been racing against much more seasoned company and will appreciate the drop in class. He has a blistering 29.66 personal best around here. However, he is the sort of dog where you have to close your eyes around the first turn due to him being an average beginner. The box draw has done him no favours with a wide runner drawn under him and a fence crasher drawn in box eight. Having said that, if this bloke gets a skerrick of luck, he will position up about fourth or fifth around the first turn and then unleash his withering finishing burst upon his rivals.
Danger: Lagoon Gun
Can definitely come out running on his night. If he does that and can carve out time in front, and if there is any trouble behind him, he may be able to pinch a winning break.
Race 11 – Palawa King (6)
Form: 412632 | Career: 25: 9-4-3 | Trainer: Mark Wilcox
Best Value Bet: Cawbourne Spade (Race 5)
Usually you will see the Cawbourne dogs owned by Stuart Dickinson and trained by the Lords, so it's nice to see Chris O'Brien training this boy for Jason Carrozza. He is from the same mum that produced Cawbourne Magic, amongst others, and so if he gets a few of those family genes, he could have plenty of ability. The Cawbourne dogs generally love an outside box and are usually very strong over the 500m distance. With almost no exposed form in this race, it is a tough one, and this boy represents tremendous value near enough to double-figure odds.
