What a night of racing we were privileged to witness last evening, highlighted by the dominate win of Tiggerlong Tong in the Sandown Shootout and the super effort of Farmor Beach in winning the Ipswich Cup. Both outstanding chasers. Tonight we will not see the same class of greyhounds competing across the nation, but we still think we can find the punters a few winners to help build their PlayUp account for a great weekend of punting.
Wagga Race 9 No 1 Hatchback $2.80 at PlayUp – Jumped straight to the front, from Box 2, in his all the way win last start at Temora after a very unlucky run at this track and distance, when he was smashed at the first bend when contesting the lead. Has the speed to lead all the way in this field. Selections: 1-4-2-3.
Geelong Race 2 No 1 Two Face $3.50 at PlayUp – Very well breed dog in a strong kennel who impressively won her maiden here last week in 22.81 from box 6. The move to the inside draw really suits, and she will go much quicker tonight from the draw I this not overly strong field. Selections: 1-2-3-8.
Richmond Race 5 No 1 Drink Moet $1.95 at PlayUp – Stepping up to the middle distance for the first time, this city class FFA performer looks very well placed in this event. Ran on well last start over 530 metres at Wentworth Park when placed 3rd in very fast time, giving the indication that she was looking for more ground. She does have the early pace to lead. Selections: 1-5-8-2.
Richmond Race 7 No 6 Empress Tears $8.50 at PlayUp – Full sister to the latest million dollar stakes winning machine in Tornado Tears, so bred to run 700 metres plus, this girl has found a new lease of life since being switched back the sprints. She chalked up short course wins at Richmond and Gunnedah before a luckless effort over the 330 metres here last start. The 400 metres tonight will suit better and she does ping the boxes so the middle box from the bend start is no deterrent. Selections: 6-1-2-8.
Geelong Race 12 No 4 Princess Furreal $2.90 at PlayUp – Back to back wins at Healesville and Geelong upon resuming from a three month break, displaying nice early speed on both occasions. Her winning time last start, this track and distance, was very good for the grade of the event. This race is no stronger and a repeat effort will see her winning again. Selections: 4-1-5-8.
