Thursday night greyhound racing is back on the BetDeluxe tipping page.
All the best bets from Sandown Park ahead of the 12-race card as the hiatus ends and the hunt for winners resumes.
sandown race 1
#2 shot of red
Shot Of Red is racing in impeccable form.
He is jumping cleanly, leading with ease and running slick time, as seen at his last start win.
Expect much of the same tonight from the inside box.
Suggested Bet: Shot Of Red win at $2
Confidence Rating: 8.5/10
sandown race 2
#1 second pick
I am taking a slight risk here and going with Second Pick.
He beat home Dunkerwin when leading the last start over 460 metres at Warragul and will map to be ahead of him in the run.
The only query is running out a full 515 metres.
Hoping Dunkerwin finds traffic from box five.
Suggested Bet: Second Pick win at $3.40
Confidence Rating: 5/10
sandown race 3
#1 balbina bale
Four-day backup and strong form at her last two starts.
Balbina Bale is ready to make it a winning run at Sandown from the inside box.
She was a $3 and $3.90 favourite at her only two runs this track and distance, but she is better equipped this time.
Suggested Bet: Balbina Bale win at $4.80
Confidence Rating: 6.5/10
sandown race 4
#4 play nice
It’s the case of a lightly-raced gun versus an established star when Play Nice, and I’m Easy Boys go head to head.
Have to be with Play Nice here, who draws nicely in box four with no dog to his immediate inside.
It just needs clear air and to be within a few metres of the favourite to pose a severe threat.
Suggested Bet: Play Nice win at $3.40
Confidence Rating: 7/10
sandown race 5
#8 orson emmy
Tough greyhound to get a real grasp.
She is a serious speed machine who can smash her opposition when she is right.
The problem is judging whether or not she will jump cleanly.
At the price, though, she is worth a wager.
Suggested Bet: Orson Emmy each way at $9 the win and $2.4 the place.
Confidence Rating: 4/10
sandown race 8
#1 aston ulysses
He is just a gun greyhound.
Rarely runs a bad race and his two recent runs might not read amazingly well on the form guide, but he has been drawn out wide for both – not his go.
Inside box is ideal as he can kick through, rail up, lead and run them ragged.
Suggested Bet: Aston Ulysses win at $2.90
Confidence Rating: 8/10
sandown race 10
#5 piscopo bale
Give another chance to Piscopo Bale.
Was his own worst enemy last start when failing to rail up strongly and getting checked hard when he was about to hit the lead.
Think he can jump a lot cleaner tonight from the middle box and put himself right on the speed.
Suggested Bet: Piscopo Bale win at $3.90
Confidence Rating: 6.5/10
