Best Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #2 Fitzroy Bale
Odds: $2.50
Race: Warrnambool, Race 3 [4:34pm AEST]
Trainer: Andrea Gurry
Form: 17221

Why it's our pick: I'm placing my best bet on #2 Fitzroy Bale today at winning odds of $2.50, and here's why:

Last time out at Horsham, this guy took off from the start and didn't look back! He clocked in at 23.01 seconds over 410m, outpacing Dundee Smokey and not just by a whisker either. The markets had him pegged for a win, and he didn't disappoint, cruising to a victory that just looked too easy!

And so, I reckon that Fitzroy Bale's blend of a lightning-fast start, a strong finish, as well as his knack for outclassing serious competition has him in with a really, really good chance today. There's something about the way he runs that tells me we're onto a winner here, so fingers crossed we can extend our best bet of the day win streak to 5!

Next Best Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #2 Roxy Rocker
Odds: $2.25
Race: Hobart, Race 8 [9:31pm AEST]
Trainer: Gary Fahey
Form: 382111

Why it's our pick: #2 Roxy Rocker is my next best bet at odds of $2.25 for the win. She's been on fire lately, bursting out of the gates and taking home the win in her last three races, clocking a notable time of 25.95 on this very track. Additionally, her knack for getting a jump on the competition right from the start has been a key factor in her winning streak.

So, when it is all said and done, I think her consistency and speed are what you look for in a winner, and I'm banking on her to deliver yet again!

Roughie Bet of the Day:

Greyhound: #7 Time Passages
Odds: $6.00 | $1.90
Race: Hobart, Race 1 [7:12pm AEST]
Trainer: Patrick Ryan
Form: 261451

Why it's our pick: Looking at a roughie bet for today, I am quite drawn to #7 Time Passages, who's sitting at $6.00 odds to win and $1.90 for a place.

Her last outing at Launceston over 515m wasn't just good - it was a solid 3.5 lengths ahead of Hot Diggity, clocking in at 30.31. And beyond that, I think it is important to recognise in a more general sense, her recent leap into winning form. It's not every day you see such a turnaround, and at these odds, I believe she's too tempting to pass up!

So, given all of this, I am happy to back Time Passages with an each way bet tonight. Fingers crossed she can get the job done for us! 

Bonus Best Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #1 Lektra Layla
Odds: $2.80
Race: Warrnambool, Race 2 [4:15pm AEST]
Trainer: Philip Lenehan
Form: 51261

Why it's our pick: My bonus best pick for today is #1 Lektra Layla, coming in hot at $2.80 odds to win.

Her ability to burst out of the boxes has caught my eye, and last time at Mt Gambier over 400m, she didn't just start fast; she finished strong too, clocking an impressive 23.06 and securing a 2-length victory. It's that kind of speed and stamina that makes me think she's up for back-to-back wins. Oh, and on top of this, I think her box 1 draw is only going to help her in this race, just as it has in the past!

So, why Lektra Layla? Well, simply put, she's got the form, the draw, and the recent performance that spells out winner to me!

Bonus Next Best Pick for the Day:

Greyhound: #3 Mepunga Reward
Odds: $4.00
Race: Sandown Park, Race 6 [8:25pm AEST]
Trainer: Jeffrey Britton
Form: 23511

Why it's our pick: #3 Mepunga Reward, with $4.00 winning odds, has been my 'best of the day bet' in both of his last two outings, and he has not disappointed! And even with a tougher race ahead today, I'm still confident enough to back him again, just not as my top bet!

In looking at his recent form, he has certainly stamped his authority with a handy 2.75 length victory over 515m right here. Plus, what's more, is that he has a staggering 5/5 record at this track, and that makes him that much more appealing to me in this race.

So, given Mepunga Reward's consistent performance and ability to dominate, I think it makes him a strong contender for today's race, and I am more than happy to back him for the win once again!

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 28/03/2023 - 28/03/2024:

Trainer NameTotal Runs%1st’s%2nd’s%3rd’s
Thomas DAILLY100715.89%16.19%13.21%
Mark DELBRIDGE47418.35%13.71%12.87%
Jeffrey BRITTON36618.03%13.39%17.76%
Jason THOMPSON22024.09%17.73%10.45%
Correy GRENFELL28016.07%16.43%10.36%

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!

Discover Your Winning Edge: Extra Resources for Greyhound Betting:

As they say, the more tools in your shed, the better equipped you'll be! And with that in mind, I want to note that outside the insightful content we offer here at MyBettingAustralia, there is at least one more additional resource which I reckon might be worth your attention. Let’s take a look!

The Watchdog platform is essentially a free app and website designed for the greyhound enthusiasts out there! It's a comprehensive guide for Aussie greyhound races, complete with form analysis, live race streaming, race replays, and the ability to save your favourite dogs and trainers, etc. I have also found that the expert tips provided over there can be more than useful when it comes to having a sound greyhound betting strategy, and by extension, having success when it comes to greyhound betting!

Remember though punters, betting is not just about intuition or luck, but also about proper planning and informed decision-making. So, with that in mind, I hope that this resource can be a valuable tool when it comes to levelling up your greyhound betting game, but I definitely do not recommend using it in isolation!
