Best Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #6 Henry Intention
Odds: $2.60
Race: Sandown Park, Race 3 [7:28pm AEST]
Trainer: Tom O'Neill
Form: 32351

Why it's our pick: I am backing in #6 Henry Intention as my 'best bet of the day', with decent odds to win at $2.60. Why, you ask? Well, I think his dominance over a similar line-up last week, where he not only went close but secured a commanding victory, speaks volumes about his form and ability to impress!

In terms of that last outing, he clinched a win by 4.5 lengths over 595m at this track, clocking in at a brisk 34.58, one of the quickest times on the card. That performance, especially as the odds-on favourite against Mcnulty, solidifies my decision.

And while Henry Intention has not yet secured a win from box 6, I'm optimistic that today's favorable race conditions and the lineup of competitors will propel him to victory. Fingers crossed Mr. Intention gets up for the win!

Next Best Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #2 Two Fifty Three
Odds: $2.05
Race: Mount Gambier, Race 5 [12:53pm AEST]
Trainer: Adam Mackereth
Form: 212642

Why it's our pick: For my 'next best bet of the day', I have gone with #2 Two Fifty Three with odds to win at $2.05. I personally think she in on track for another win today, particularly given her triumph on February 29 at this same track over 512m.

Additionally, I feel as though her most recent performance, securing a second place finish over 512m with a time of 30.10, just behind Minh Ellie, further cements my confidence in her. She rates higher among her competitors in the race today, and when you combine that with her current form, well, I think she will be tough to beat!

Roughie Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #8 Mocambora Mia
Odds: $6.00 | $1.95
Race: Mount Gambier, Race 7 [1:37pm AEST]
Trainer: David Peckham
Form: 413721

Why it's our pick: For my 'roughie bet of the day,' I'm rolling the dice with #8 Mocambora Mia, currently at odds of $6.00/$1.95. 

Her last start's victory, winning by 2.25 lengths over 400m at this track in a solid 23.08 time against Aston Verona, shows she's got the grit and speed when it counts. And yes, I am aware that stepping up to today's challenge might be a tougher task, and she won't find it so easy, however, I feel it's exactly this underdog position, with a wide box draw, that makes Mocambora Mia an intriguing pick for me!

So, even though the odds here for Mocambora Mia reinforce the idea that she is a 'roughie' in this race, I'm nevertheless prepared to back her potential for an upset... Here's hoping she can pull through with a performance that turns heads today!

Bonus Best Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #2 Lochinvar Chaos
Odds: $2.15
Race: Maitland, Race 3 [3:52pm AEST]
Trainer: Michelle Lill
Form: 2431

Why it's our pick: My 'bonus best pick for the day' is #2 Lochinvar Chaos, sitting at odds of $2.15 to win. His recent victory, just three days ago over 400m at this track by 3 lengths in a Maiden race, really caught my eye, signaling a dog on the rise!

I feel as though Lochinvar Chaos not only shows promise but also improvement with every outing, and it is this kind of momentum that makes him stick out to me as a greyhound to watch today. Additionally, I think his consistency and knack for seizing the lead early further positions him as a strong contender in today's race, and with that I am more than happy to back him in for the win!

Bonus Next Best Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #8 Glisten
Odds: $2.10
Race: Angle Park, Race 12 [10:47pm AEST]
Trainer: Kim Johnstone
Form: 124121

Why it's our pick: I've chosen #8 Glisten as my 'bonus next best pick for the day,' with odds of $2.10 to win. 

Her explosive start in the last race, marked by a fast early split, propelled her to a notable 6 length victory over 400m at Gawler, clocking in at 22.63. This was a really impressive performance, and it is one I just could not ignore when deciding on this pick for today!

I think that if Glisten can replicate that kind of start today, she's undoubtedly the one to beat, and I am counting on her doing just that!

The Winning Formula – Picking Your Greyhound:

Okay, punters! Are you ready level up on your greyhound betting game? Well, let us now dig into the key factors and strategies that can turn a guess into an educated bet. Welcome to the art of (hopefully) picking a winning greyhound!

  • Form Matters: Diving into the world of greyhound racing, I quickly learned the importance of form. It's about deciphering which greyhound has been lighting up the tracks recently versus those trailing behind. It's not just numbers though; but rather it's the story of their recent journeys on the track, and the context on why a certain greyhound has or has not been so successful recently.
  • Race Class Is Key: I have also found that understanding the level at which a greyhound competes is also notable when it comes to trying to pick a winner. It's akin to assessing whether a young footy player is up for the AFL level challenge or rather should stick to dominating the VFL. This insight can significantly influence betting decisions, and certainly has in my experience!
  • Speed Can't Be Ignored: The essence of greyhound racing lies in its speed. And with that, monitoring speed out the box, sectional times and overall race performance has become another key factor for me when it comes to identifying the top contenders.
  • Track Conditions Matter: Additionally, every track has its own personality, affecting outcomes in ways I hadn't imagined some time ago. Some greyhounds thrive under specific conditions, turning them into favourites or dark horses based on their compatibility with the track's nuances.
  • Sniffing out the Value: And finally, another important factor for me here is that my opinion matches the odds in the market. Some bets have turned out to be very profitable because I've been able to find times when my research shows that the bookies have undervalued a greyhound!

So, to bring this all together, let's wrap this up with an example. Imagine we've got a greyhound named 'Thunder Bolt', who's been running impressively with recent form of 1123. Additionally, in looking further into this contender, we discover that he's moving down a class, has some of the quickest sectional times, and has a knack for shining on the track he's about to race on. His past performances are also pretty commendable, and the betting odds for a win seem quite appealing, even if there isn’t an extreme amount of value.

As such, with all of this in mind, it looks as though 'Thunder Bolt' stands out as a promising choice! It's crucial to remember, though, that there's no such thing as a sure bet, but what I will say is, that by paying attention to these key factors above, well, this can greatly enhance your betting prospects!

From the Tracks to Triumph – Australia’s Elite Greyhound Trainers of 2023-2024:

Now, punters! I am keen to take you on a journey to explore the different in-form trainers that have seen the most metropolitan track success in the past year. And while I don't think it is wise to look at a trainers record as a determining factor when it comes to greyhound betting, I nonetheless understand the insights it can provide in the hopes of making the most informed betting decisions as possible!

So, without further ado, take a look below at a list I have complied of Top Greyhound Trainers' at varying Metropolitan Tracks from 04/04/2023 - 04/04/2024:

Trainer NameTotal Runs%1st’s%2nd’s%3rd’s
Thomas DAILLY101016.34%16.14%12.87%
Mark DELBRIDGE47318.18%13.95%12.47%
Jeffrey BRITTON36617.76%13.39%18.03%
Jason THOMPSON21824.31%16.97%10.55%
Correy GRENFELL28216.31%17.02%10.28%

Wow, now isn't that an impressive list of trainers we've got on our hands! And I think it’s fair to say that every trainer on this Aussie list has proven their worth, consistently producing top-dog performances in their respective races. However, as I mentioned before, this information in isolation is just not enough - there is always more to the story!

So, to all you punters out there, don't just rely on the trainer's name alone. Keep your eyes peeled, do your homework, and factor in all aspects of the race. A great trainer backing a greyhound is a good sign indeed, but it's not the whole shebang. And as such, remember, in this game, every detail counts. Be alert, be smart, and good luck out there on the tracks!
