Greyhound Tips: 28th May

On Thursday at Albion Park, greyhound followers witnessed one of the best runs ever seen at that track, when the John Dart trained Gypsy Del came from a seemingly impossible position at the first turn, to win running away by three lengths in the final of the Group 3 Young Guns (520m). Despite drawing box 1, Gypsy Del was last at the winning post on the first occasion before railing through to fifth entering the back straight, but some ten lengths off the leader. Weaving her way to second just before the home turn, she balanced up in the straight and spouted wings over the last fifty metres, racing away to win by three lengths. The overall race time of 29.69 was very quick, and her run home of 12.23 is a new record. Gypsy Del looks destined for an outstanding staying career when she is stepped up in distance over the coming months. Wow She’s Fast proved herself to be the fastest dog in Victoria when she defeated Big Opal Rocks, by two lengths, in a flying 29.113, in their match race of the Group 3 Speed Star (515m), on a track that was rated slow following inclement weather. This time was clearly faster than the other three match races, with last week’s Group 1 Harrison Dawson winner recording the next best time of the series, when he ran 29.51. Wow She’s Fast is now very likely to head north to tackle the major sprint races during the Queensland Winter Carnival.

The countries best staying greyhounds will all be heading to The Gardens (Newcastle) next Saturday night for the heats of the “715”. This race is a new event on the calendar, with the winner of the final on Saturday 11 June, to receive $500,000, making this race the richest staying race in the world. Greyhounds the calibre of Zipping Kansas, Super Estrella, Cool Bourbski, Untapped, Sound Of Silence and Mepunga Ruby are all likely to compete in what promises to be an outstanding series. Only this week, GRNSW announced a further new lucrative race, worth $50,000 to the winner, the Southern Stars for sprinting greyhounds. Heats will be conducted at Temora, Goulburn and Wagga, with the final to be conducted on 29 July at Goulburn. Highlight of greyhound racing this Saturday is the final of the Group 3 West Australian Oaks (520m) to be run at Cannington. A very even field will face the starter, but we feel Sister Roberta (1) is ideally drawn in box 1 and should be able to get the cash. Now let us see if we can continue our outstanding recent form and tip our followers into a few winners tonight.

The Meadows Race 1 No 6 Tails Of Woe $3.90 at PlayUp – Only recorded the one career win from her fifteen starts, but this does look a very winnable race. Has a vacant box on her immediate inside and this should give her sufficient room to find the lead. She sticks on well, so the distance is not an issue. Not a lot of depth in the event.

Wentworth Park Race 4 No 2 Explosive Venom $3.60 at PlayUp – Will really appreciate the huge drop in class from her last start, that being in the final of the Brother Fox at Dubbo. Strong railer who has an excellent winning strike rate overall. This does look her race. We think she is the best bet of the night and the banker for your multi bets.

Wentworth Park Race 5 No 2 Panorama $1.95 at PlayUp – Third time lucky we are hoping as we have selected her the previous two weeks and, on both occasions, she has been luckless in the run. She is a good beginner so we are hoping she can be in the leading group around first bend and then use her strength to run away in the home straight. She is a nice type.

Warragul Race 10 No 2 Deep Witts $2.60 at PlayUp – Huge motor in this greyhound but hasn’t always applied himself 100%. Resumes tonight from a two month break and we should see the real Deep Witts being so fresh. This looks a nice race for him.

Wentworth Park Race 8 No 1 Zipping Kyrgios $3.10 at PlayUp – Super star sprinter who resumed recently at Dubbo after a two month break from racing but had little luck in the run and finished unplaced. Looks well suited here tonight, as he loves this track and races well from the rails draw. Probably cannot hold the inside early but he does hit the line very hard. Yes.
