Best of the Day:

Greyhound: #1 Stockton Slap
Odds: $2.60
Race: Dapto, Race 6 [8:40pm AEST]
Trainer: Mark Gatt
Form: 13472

Why it's our pick: In his recent race, Stockton Slap put on a commendable performance, registering a swift time of 30.17 and just missing the lead to Mason Here. That performance not only highlighted his speed but also his burgeoning potential, as many felt he was on the brink of seizing the top position.

Considering this, I'm particularly impressed by Stockton Slap's marked improvement over 520m at this track. Though he has a tendency to stay behind in races, which introduces an element of luck, his latest outings position him as my 'best bet of the day', and I look forward to seeing him race away today!

Roughie of the Day:

Greyhound: #1 Hennessey
Odds: $12.00 | $2.70
Race: The Gardens, Race 4 [4:27pm AEST]
Trainer: Shane Pulbrook
Form: 611273

Why it's our pick: Diving into the details, Hennessey at The Gardens R4 offers intriguing odds of $12.00 for a win and $2.70 for a place, making him a standout contender to me. His recent form speaks volumes with an impressive tally of 2 wins and 2 minor placements in his last 5 starts. Although he's new to this venue, and a bit older now, his remarkable record of 7 wins out of 13 when donning the red rug is noteworthy. His last outing at Richmond Straight in a Grade 4/5 saw him securing a place within a 5-length difference, clocking a time of 18.06.

So, given his excellent track record off the draw, with seven wins and three places from just 13 starts, it's evident that he's comfortable in his lane and well-suited for this race. With all these credentials, Hennessey emerges as a strong contender and earns the spotlight as my 'roughie of the day' selection!

PLACE Multi of the Day:

12:23 - Shepparton, Race 3: #2 Blame Spencer PLACE $1.50
13:19 - Shepparton, Race 6: #6 Sartana PLACE @ $1.90
13:27 - Gunnedah, Race 5: #8 Panama Boy PLACE @ $1.45

Combined Odds: $4.13

Why it's our pick: Starting off with my multi, Blame Spencer has been flashing commendable speed in his recent outings, particularly at Shepparton, making him an enticing pick to place in R3.

Next in line, at Shepparton R6, is Sartana. Fresh from an all-the-way win over 450m, he showcased his mettle by being dominant right from the start and securing a victory in just 25.72 seconds! His recent performance against competitors like Twilight Style suggests he has an edge in the upcoming race, and with that, I am happy to take him to place in this one!

And in rounding out my multi, I have gone with Panama Boy to place at Gunnedah R5. Despite recent misfortune, he's showcased impressive form with three straight wins leading up to his last race. His consistent placements, especially from this particular draw, hint at another promising run. His track record over 340m further strengthens my conviction in his potential for a top placement.

So, in combining these insights, I'm hopeful that my 'multi of the day' gets up. Let's keep our fingers crossed and hope for that rewarding outcome!

Bonus Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #1 Ruby And Rice
Odds: $2.50
Race: Hobart, Race 1 [7:19pm AEST]
Trainer: Michael Sherriff
Form: 311511

Why it's our pick: Ruby And Rice from Hobart R1 emerges as a compelling choice for my 'bonus pick for the day'. Notably, in her last outing, she garnered considerable support and didn't disappoint. She showcased an explosive start, charging out of the boxes with an impressive early sectional. This commanding performance continued as she clocked a remarkable time of 15.97, securing a 2.5 lengths victory over 278m at Launceston.

So, given this recent demonstration of speed and agility, I believe Ruby And Rice stands as a prime contender and looks quite challenging to beat in the upcoming race.

Bonus Multi for the Day:

20:01 - Geelong, Race 10: #5 Bomb Murt WIN @ $2.35
20:34 - Angle Park, Race 5: #4 Get Up Jimmy WIN @ $1.75
22:07 - Dappto, Race 10: #8 Rosebery Hustler WIN @ $2.05

Combined Odds: $8.43

Why it's our pick: Kicking off my 'bonus multi for the day', we have Bomb Murt at Geelong R10. After an assertive victory at this very track not long ago, this runner poses a considerable threat, especially if he manages a good step off the mark. What's more, his recent win just six days ago over 460m showcases his commendable form and potential for back-to-back victories.

Next up, Get Up Jimmy from Angle Park R5. This greyhound is undoubtedly in peak form, boasting a streak of four consecutive wins, which includes a notable victory over 400m at Gawler. His consistent performances over short distances and at Gawler, clocking impressive times, further bolster his credentials. The only slight hesitation arises from the step up in distance, but given his current form, I'm optimistic.

Rounding off the selection, we have Rosebery Hustler at Dapto R10. A proven chaser, he's managed to secure a staggering 13 wins out of 17 attempts over this distance. His recent clocking of an impressive 16.93 showcases his speed and ability, making him a formidable contender, especially if he manages a clean early cross. His previous performance, where he led from start to finish, underscores his potential and cements his place as a leading choice.

So, in blending these strong individual contenders, the combined odds sit at a promising $8.43. This 'bonus multi for the day' is not just a throw at the stumps but a calculated, informed bet. Fingers crossed for a winning combination!

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!
