An enormous day of greyhound racing from Albion Park, Dapto and Sandown Park.
The best bets have lobbed and that means it’s time to find winners to make us grinners.
Dapto Race 2
#7 ZIpping Panama
Zipping Panama stepped up in distance, raced in city grade last start and started a $4.8 elect but it all went wrong.
After drawing an inside box, he was pestered by another dog the whole way around the Wentworth Park 520-metre circuit and never looked comfortable in the run.
A return to a much easier maiden race and drawing an outside box will see him extremely hard to beat.
He is in the good hands of John Finn and he won’t be a maiden dog for much longer.
Suggested Bet: Zipping Panama win at $2.3
Suggested Exotic: Exacta 1 & 2
Dapto Race 7
#7 Opal Rocks
Opal Rocks was a beaten force behind Vamos Penny at Wentworth Park over the 520 metres last start but she will improve dramatically in this race.
She comes out of the same race as the favourite in this event, Super Estrella, but despite starting double the price of Super Estrella in that race, the set-up here for our selection is much more favourable.
Box seven will be perfect for her as she takes a few strides to really hit her top gear.
Undefeated at one start from box seven which was two starts ago and with a clear passage she can easily knock off Super Estrella.
Suggested Bet: Opal Rocks at $3.4
Suggested Exotic: Trifecta – 4, 7/ 4, 7/ 3, 6
Sandown Park Race 2
#1 He Shall Blitz
He Shall Blitz is the one to be with here from the cherry blanket.
He is a mad railer who will be hunting up on the inside of runners in this race and just needs a shade of luck to be winning.
His last handful of starts actually read much better than what they look like in the form guide on face value.
As soon as the lids open his eyes dart to the left in search of the rails and he has had dogs drawn inside of him which has not allowed him to find the rails early in the race.
This time he will land on the rails straight away.
Suggested Bet: He Shall Blitz win at $4
Suggested Exotic: Boxed F4 – 1, 2, 3, 7
sandown park race 8
#1 Dr Madison
Dr Madison was well defeated by Jarick Bale at The Meadows last start but gets her chance to atone in this Sandown Park 515-metre event.
She started a $1.80 favourite in that race after having her runs spaced by a fortnight which may have just taken the edge off her racing.
The five-day back-up into this race shows good intent from trainer William McMahon and confirms she’s pulled up well from her run last start.
If the favourite is slightly off his game then Dr Madison is the very chaser to be first past the post.
Suggested Bet: Dr Madison each-way at $6 the win and $1.85 the place
Albion Park Race 5
#6 Pokie Payout
Going to give Pokie Payout one more go.
We backed her last week at this track and distance but she was a bit tardy away from box two and cost herself the race at start.
However, she still put in a big performance after she exploded late in the race to flash home and finish second only beaten a length.
Having drawn wider out in this race might suit a dog of her racing style; begin slowly and rattle home out deep on the track.
If she puts it all together, she will beat the odds-on elect in this race.
Suggested Bet: Pokie Payout each-way $7.5 the win and $1.90 the place
