Best of the Day:

Greyhound: #2 Landyn Bale
Odds: $2.50
Race: Sandown Park, Race 5 [8:19pm AEST]
Trainer: Mark Delbridge
Form: 22351

Why it's our pick: Landyn Bale stands out as my 'best bet of the day' for a multitude of reasons. His recent triumph at this very track over 515m, where he showcased a powerful performance by clinching the win by 0.8 lengths and clocking a time of 29.55, signals his fine form. It's also worth noting his impressive record, especially his three victories from this particular box. As a bold front-runner with a commendable track record here, Landyn Bale has consistently demonstrated that he's a force to be reckoned with.

So, when looking at his past performances and his capability to dominate from the get-go, coupled with the inherent threat he poses to competitors, I think this makes him a top contender and my prime pick for the day!

Roughie of the Day:

Greyhound: #6 Despicable Max
Odds: $9.00 | $2.40
Race: Dapto, Race 3 [7:25pm AEST]
Trainer: Sarah Easey
Form: 4553

Why it's our pick: Despicable Max is an intriguing choice for the 'roughie of the day'. Although he had a moderate start in his last outing over this trip, he managed to secure a commendable 3rd place finish in an average time. While he does need a touch of luck early on, his recent performance, especially when he placed third behind Alzena Girl over 297m at this track, is noteworthy. Clocking in at 17.61 in that race, it's evident that he possesses the ability to shine when conditions align.

So, given these considerations, placing an 'Each Way' bet on Despicable Max seems the more prudent option, as it provides the opportunity for returns while also hedging against uncertainties. With odds of $9.00/$2.40, there's potential for a rewarding outcome, and here is to hoping he gets up!

Multi of the Day:

14:19 - Mount Gambier, Race 7: #3 Mocambora Izza PLACE$1.35
14:44 - Albion Park, Race 9: #8 Canya Charm WIN$2.20
- Angle Park, Race 10: #4 It's Smudgy PLACE @ $1.55

Combined Odds: $4.60

Why it's our pick: Kicking off the multi is Mocambora Izza in Mount Gambier's R7. Although she faced long odds in her last race, she exhibited her prowess with eye-catching early pace. While she faded slightly to finish 4th, her time of 23.35 over 400m hints at her latent potential. Given her solid track record from this draw, which includes three wins, she seems like a reliable pick for a place, and I am happy to back her for that!

Next, in Albion Park's R9, is Canya Charm. Her latest outing was marked by strong support, and she didn't disappoint, launching out of the boxes and posting a swift 17.00 in a convincing win at Casino over 300m. Her evident preference for the 331m distance and her flawless record from box eight make her an attractive choice, and with that, I am more than happy to back her for the win!

And in rounding out my selections we have It's Smudgy in Angle Park's race 10. I think she stands out to place in this race, and despite a recent setback here, she demonstrated her prowess with a win at Broken Hill over 525m. And with that, given her evident skill and past achievements, I see value in backing her for a place finish in my multi.

So, with a combined odds of $4.60, this multi, shaped by each greyhound's recent form and inherent potential, promises both value and thrill. I'm optimistic about the prospective returns from this selection, so fingers crossed these greyhounds perform well today!

Bonus Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #9 Pursuer
Odds: $2.20
Race: Ipswich, Race 1 [7:10pm AEST]
Trainer: Tom Tzouvelis
Form: 112408

Why it's our pick: For my 'bonus pick of the day', I've set my sights on Pursuer in Ipswich's R1. Though she hasn't posed a significant threat in her recent outings, her commendable track record over this specific track and distance shouldn't be overlooked. She's proven her prowess with both of her wins at this 520m, demonstrating her ability to take the lead and set a swift pace. Moreover, while she'll be donning the number 9 vest, she benefits from jumping out of box 1 – a potentially advantageous position.

So, given these factors, I really do think that Pursuer stands out as a promising contender with a legitimate chance to shine, making her my chosen bonus pick here!

Bonus Ballarat Multi for the Day:

17:41 - Ballarat, Race 2: #4 Fifty Short PLACE$1.45
19:31 - Ballarat, Race 8: #6 Gunai Bold PLACE @ $1.26
20:16 - Ballarat, Race 11: #2 Carajillo WIN$2.10

Combined Odds: $3.83

Why it's our pick: Starting off with race 2 at Ballarat, Fifty Short is an intriguing first-timer hailing from the K Turner kennel, sired by Orson Allen out of Summer Skye. With his debut, the market sentiment looks to be a valuable indicator, and he has already seen some decent support, so with that, I am happy to back him for the place today!

Moving on, come race 8, Guani Bold is certainly one to watch! His recent form is commendable, having secured a place in his last outing. But it's his stellar victory at Traralgon that catches the eye. He dashed across 450m in a swift 25.07, clinching the race by a narrow 0.9 lengths. Known for his explosive start, he's positioned well to secure another notable position, and with that, I am more than happy to back him for the place.

Finally, for the grand finish, in race 11 I am backing Carajillo to win. Having displayed commendable performance at Shepparton and securing a forward position at this very track in his recent outing, he's no stranger to the limelight. His last race brought a halt to a four-race winning streak, but given his impressive early speed, I personally expect him to be a significant contender, especially with the potential to outpace the red.

So, in combining these options together, we are sitting at combined odds of $3.83, and here's to hoping for a strong performance across the board!

The Winning Formula – Picking Your Greyhound:

Ready to get the inside track on greyhound betting? Let's dig into the key factors and strategies that can turn a guess into an educated bet. Welcome to the art of picking a winning greyhound!

  • Form: When you're sizing up a Greyhound, one of the first things you should look at is its form. Has the dog been tearing up the track recently, or has it been more of a tail-ender? Recent form can give you a solid indication of a Greyhound's current capabilities.
  • Class: Class refers to the level at which a Greyhound has been competing. A jump in class can mean stiffer competition, while a drop can provide a confidence boost to our four-legged friend.
  • Speed: In Greyhound racing, speed can make all the difference. Pay attention to a dog's sectional times and overall race times to gauge its speed. The fastest dogs are usually the ones crossing the finish line first!
  • Track Bias: Every track has its quirks. Some dogs might perform better on certain tracks due to their running style, track conditions, or weather on race day. So, keep an eye on the track!
  • Race History: How has the dog performed in past races? Has it consistently been a strong contender, or does it have a mixed bag of results? A dog's race history can provide insights into its potential future performance.
  • Betting Odds: The odds reflect the public's opinion of a Greyhound's chances. Lower odds indicate a favourite, while higher odds suggest an underdog. However, don't just follow the crowd - look for value bets where you believe a dog has a better chance than the odds imply!
  • Finding the Value Bets: It's all about comparing your assessment of a Greyhound's chances to the odds on offer. If you believe the odds are higher than they should be based on your evaluation, you've potentially found a value bet.

To bring this all together, let's take a gander at an example. Say we have a Greyhound named 'Thunder Bolt', with a recent form of 1123, showing consistency. He's dropping in class, his sectional times are among the fastest, and he's previously performed well at the upcoming track. His race history is impressive, and the odds on offer for a win are generous. Here, based on our strategy, 'Thunder Bolt' appears to be a strong pick, and a possible value bet.

And always remember, there are no guarantees in betting, but understanding these factors can significantly boost your chances. Happy punting, mate!
