Best of the Day:

Greyhound: #2 Xyloid Bale
Odds: $2.00
Race: Sandown Park, Race 7 [8:52pm AEST]
Trainer: Thomas Dailly (Anakie)
Form: 22621

Why it's our pick: Xyloid Bale caught my attention with a commendable win at The Meadows last week, leading by 1.5 lengths over 525m and clocking in at 29.95. Notably, he outshined Zipping Crusader in that Grade 5 showdown on October 7th.

A significant strength of his is the consistent performance when launching from this particular box. And given his recent prowess and reliability, I think Xyloid Bale is more than justifiable as our standout pick for the day!

Roughie of the Day:

Greyhound: #6 She Devil
Odds: $7.00 | $1.75
Race: Warrnambool, Race 10 [8:34pm AEST]
Trainer: Ebony Deglaitis (Moolap)
Form: 55127

Why it's our pick: She Devil has certainly shown her mettle in recent races. She clinched a victory three outings ago at Ballarat and then secured a commendable position among the top contenders. Although she placed seventh in her last race at this venue with a time of 25.94, it's important not to overlook her potential.

I feel she possesses undeniable talent and stands out as a noteworthy contender for this event. And with odds at $7.00 to win and $1.75 to place, I think she is an intriguing 'roughie of the day' selection that I am more than happy to take!

Multi of the Day:

17:57 - Warrnambool, Race 1: #2 What Hope WIN @ $1.75
20:25 - Hobart Race 4, #9 Miss Me Mum PLACE @ $1.65
20:28 - Sandown Park, Race 6: #6 Flying Zulu WIN @ $2.25

Combined Odds: $5.90

Why it's our pick: Starting with What Hope at Warrnambool: This greyhound is fresh off an impressive debut, where she showcased tenacity with a swift start from a challenging draw, clinching a notable place finish over 390m in a time of 22.66. And with such a bright start under her belt, I'm optimistic about her potential to shine even brighter, and that is why she is a feature in my 'multi of the day'!

Transitioning to Miss Me Mum at Hobart: This contender wrapped up her previous season with a performance at Launceston. Now, after a rejuvenating ten-week hiatus, she's back and poised to make a mark! And with odds of $1.65 to place, she's pegged as a formidable competitor and I like her presence in this multi!

Lastly, Flying Zulu at Sandown Park: Riding on a wave of impeccable form, this champ boasts three consecutive victories! The recent triumph at The Meadows, where he edged out Crimson Cannon by 0.7 lengths in a Grade 6 showdown, speaks volumes about his capabilities. So, I think this run serves as a compelling testament to his form, and it is why I am more than happy to take him in this multi!

Together, these selections form my 'multi of the day', and I believe that each of these greyhounds brings something special to the table, and I'm genuinely excited to see how they perform in their races. Fingers crossed for a great day at the tracks!

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!

From the old guard to the up-and-comers, these top-notch trainers have been wrangling their speedy snags into metro track champs, proving they're more than just a kangaroo short in the top paddock when it comes to the sport.
