Greyhound best bets for Wednesday 23rd February 2011 with tips from The Meadows greyhounds (Victoria), Shepparton greyhounds (Victoria), Ballarat greyhounds (Victoria), Nowra greyhounds (New South Wales), The Gardens greyhounds (New South Wales), Albion Park greyhounds (Queensland), Ipswich greyhounds (Queensland), Angle Park greyhounds (South Australia), and Cannington greyhounds (West Australia).
Best Bet Angle Park Greyhounds
Race 5 – Box 3 – Gold Coast Gazza – 1:56pm SA time
Gold Coast Gazza is a young greyhound under the care of Victorian trainer Rob Britton, and made the final of the Sandown Vic Breeders Maiden two starts back, finishing last after suffering interference. Backed up at The Meadows and again disappointed finishing seventh.
But first maiden win was very impressive at Sandown, when leading all the way in 30.17 on a day when the best was only 30.04. On that run, would bolt this in. Take on trust against here.
Best Bet The Meadows Greyhounds
Race 9 – Box 1 – Pedro Sanchez – 2:31pm Vic time
The Len Ketalaar trained Pedro Sanchez should get the gun run from box 1 in this 5th grade. Was tailed off at his first race start and was made to stewards trial before his second start, running second in a maiden here in 30.48 from this box.
Last week from box 4 he led soon after the start and made every post a winner, running 30.42 winning by 8.25 lengths. Slow beginner on his outside should give just enough cover and this is no harder than last week.
Best Bet Shepparton Greyhounds
Race 4 – Box 7 – Gippy Flyer – 4:30pm Vic time
Gippy Flyer looks the testing material in this 390m race from the 7 box. Showed good early pace to lead here on 9th February from box 5 and win his maiden on debut running 8.69, 22.75.
While the time is only moderate he is bound to be improved from the run and the move out to box 7 should give him room to move with a slow beginner boxed to his outside. Has some pace to his inside but should be able to prove to strong in the run to the line.
Best Bet Albion Park Greyhounds
Race 8 – Box 3 – Kya Rose Hi – 5:03pm Qld time
The only race that is not a worthless 300m race on the program is race 8, the 5th grade over 520m and we’re going to stick with Kya Rose Hi who won well for us last week in this corresponding race.
Again looks well placed here as the winner of 3 races from 10 starts with back to back wins coming here at Albion Park in 30.78 and 30.75. Slightly up in grade on last weeks run but is in very good form.
Best Bet Ballarat Greyhounds
Race 8 – Box 6 – Lektra Express – 9:18pm Vic time
Going to stick with Lektra Express here, who was uncharacteristically run down here last start after leading a good field. The winner did run best of the night to beat her, but must something have been amiss as he is a much better greyhound than that.
Lektra Express is in our opinion a potential superstar, who has already twice broken the Warragul 400m track record. Put him in your black book, this bloke is going to win some big races and should be able to lead this field and win tonight after the short 2 week let up.
Best Bet Nowra Greyhounds
Race 8 – Box 8 – Bustling Shiraz – 5:57pm NSW time
Bustling Shiraz gave no indication last week as to why he has only won 2 from 10 and run 6 seconds. From this same box in last week’s heats, flew away early running 4.44 and kept it going to win in the best of day 30.24 to be fastest qualifier.
Prior to that had run second at Dapto after leading and getting run down in 30.37 from box 1. Should be able to cross and lead easily and again prove too good.
Best Bet The Gardens Greyhounds
Race 5 – Number 9 – Box 8 – Bloss Sannette – 8:26pm NSW time
Prepared to give Bloss Sannette another chance here, getting in to the final as first reserve. Missed the start last week and got squeezed out early when running fifth behind Jezzadora beaten a fair way.
That run was well below par and the Kevin Johnson trained greyhound has had 27 starts for 15 wins and 3 placings and since resuming from a 2 month spell had been unbeaten in 2 runs prior to last week.
Has already won here in 34.94 when jumping from box 6 and the move to box 8 today is an advantage. Should go close at big odds.
Best Bet Ipswich Greyhounds
Race 4 – Box 5 – Made To Fly – 7:11pm Qld time
Semi final night of the Vince Curry Memorial and just as last week, our bet of the night at Ipswich is Made To Fly. The Sandra Hunt trained daughter of Mate To Size and Solid Skye hasn’t put a foot wrong in the series yet.
Looked very impressive winning her qualifying heat in the best of the day 30.67 on debut from box 3, and last week won her quarter final by 4.5 lengths in 31.10. Proved her commitment last week when headed but didn’t give up and chased hard for the win. Should do the same again tonight.
Best Bet Cannington Greyhounds
Race 8 – Box 5 – Naomi Keeping – 8:37pm WA time
Naomi Keeping went down again here last week after leading early and getting run down by a better one. Again tonight will be the leader despite the awkward box 5 draw. has been running good times of 30.89, 30.66 and 30.71 getting beaten and was beaten in the best of the night last week.
Hasn’t been further back than 4th at her 8 runs since arriving from NSW. Has the pace to lead this race and should repeat her effort here 3 starts ago when leading throughout in 30.89.
