With the whirlwind that was the Million Dollar Chase over for now, we have 10 races on the card for Wentworth Park tonight. The Lord kennel – fresh off their triumph in the Million Dollar Chase on Saturday night – have a strong team and are a genuine chance to win three or four races tonight. Let’s see if we can help you find a winner.
BEST BET: Ritza Donna (Race 10)
The Dapto Megastar winner was extremely honest and gallant in running third here on Saturday night (and still posted a flying 29.8sec) in the Million Dollar Chase final behind two of the flying Lord dogs. She had to do so much work just to get a run through, so it was an outstanding run. There is no She’s A Pearl for this girl to contend with tonight, and the small field means she will likely get enough breaks to be handy early before surging to the lead down the back straight and careering away to a well-deserved win. She should find the fence early, as both of the greyhounds under her tonight have good pace, and she should get a good run behind them into the race and hopefully on to victory. Sally’s Reward is the main danger.
NEXT BEST BET: Tiger Jack (Race 6)
This is another star that resides in the kennels of Andy and Jodie Lord. We have known for some time that this son of Fernando Bale and Book Of Luck has a massive motor and has been flying in the later stages over the 520m, which suggested a staying career was beckoning for him, but since he has stepped up in distance he has been superb. Since going up to the middle distance he is three wins from four starts and has always looked like 700m would be his best distance, and now we have that long-anticipated debut over the Wentworth Park 720m. He can be a touch risky at box rise but does have some early pace, and the dogs drawn either side of him don’t possess much early pace either, so there is a chance he may land on the fence early and near the front of the field, and from there he will be very hard to beat. Dangers are Ultra Impressive and Lucky Dice.
BEST VALUE BET: Lepidoptera (Race 2)
Lepidoptera (named for the order of insects that includes butterflies and moths) is better than she has shown here at Wentworth Park recently. She has good early pace and could well lead this race, stack up the opposition and open up a big lead. From there she will need to dig deep to hold on. She has only had box 1 once in her career and ran third at Richmond but has two wins from three starts from box 2, so she enjoys the inside boxes. Whilst there are no particularly strong dogs in the race, she will need to lead and will need to improve her personal best time here at Headquarters. With luck early, she can do that tonight.
