Albion Park Greyhound Racing Tips
Race 1. 6.24PM Garrards Horse and Hound Novice – 520 metres
#2 Frog’s Hollow – Bet Now
Deserves a second chance after a brave showing first up over the 520-last week, led them everywhere except the post.
Only obstacle to leading looks Riverboat Queen in the red, but the way he spring the lids from the middle of the line last week and accelerated through to lead, should do it a lot easier from box two.
Race 2. 6.48PM Orsen Allen @ Meticulous Lodge Masters – 520 metres
#2 Rapid State – Bet Now
Put bluntly this is not a strong field and gives this noted short courser an excellent chance of pinching a 520-metre win on Thursday night.
Tarquin Neal’s dog has still been racking up wins regularly over the 395 trip at Albion and 431 metres at Ipswich in better company than this.
He does find the extra distance here but with no genuine early speed in the race he should get it all his own way get away but a few lengths down the back and hold on.
Race 3. 7.07PM Fabregas @ Stud Masters – 520 metres
#1 Kealoah – Bet Now
Have been waiting for the right race for this bitch for a number of weeks, has been very close to crossing them from wide alleys in similar races and finally comes up with the pole here, something she should use to drive through and take control of this race.
Smashniak Double from box four looks the only other early speed and Kealoah has the early toe to keep him out and go all the way.
Race 4. 7.28PM TAB Listed The Lightning Final – 331 metres
#2 Magical Cyndie – Bet Now
Draws win feature races and Bill Elson gets it here with the speedy Magical Cyndie who comes into cosy box two after having to overcome box eight in the heats of this race.
Has the early speed to cross Travis Elson’s Summer’s Queen in one and Charming Chaos outside her isn’t the quickest away either.
Expect plenty of pressure to be coming from deep on the track, but if she finds the fence it should be curtains.
Race 5. 7.52PM TAB Listed The Thunder Final – 395 metres
#6 Magical Bill – Bet Now
Very tough race to judge with three great chances in Magical Bill, Canya Cruise and Federal Morgan if you like one over this pick I wouldn’t discourage you, but Magical Bill’s eight from eight status at the trip gets him the nod.
Canya Cruise has just been missing the start half a step and if he does that from box five Magical Bill will take advantage from the six and be the likely leader.
Federal Morgan is full of ability but in only his second start at the track from box eight it may be a bridge too far.
Race 6. 8.13PM TAB Super Sprinters Listed Final – 520 metres
#4 Oh Mickey – Bet Now
Oh Mickey doesn’t need an ideal box draw to win a race but it certainly helps against this select high class small field.
He tasted his first defeat in some time checked badly at the first corner last time out, with a week between runs and box four with vacant boxes either side expect to see that explosive early speed see him lead and win.
Jasper The Jet can hang with him early but showed he doesn’t quite have the engine to stay with him throughout.
Race 7. 8.37PM BGRC Chairman’s Cup Final – 600 metres
#4 Shilo – Bet Now
A bitch on the quick back up from an impressive 34.89 win here on Monday night, added a new string to her bow by coming from behind to score and should go around at a juicy each way quote here.
Ash Star will be the favourite in the race from box on but doesn’t run the hands off the clock and should be headed by Brent Kline’s kennel mate Logo early giving Shilo a nice trail just off the speed.
The bitch is rock hard fit and ready to show her wares in open company.
Race 8. Orsen Allen @ Stud Super Stayers Group Three Final – 710 metres
#3 Velocity Bettina – Bet Now
Last minute reprieve saw her come in as a reserve and win a listed race in a sizzling 41.65 gallop last week a much-needed confidence booster after not handling wide boxes.
Shifts two places out to the three this week but should still be able to lead and hold the rail around the first corner with a couple of moderate beginners inside her.
Likely to come up with a skinny quote here perhaps combine with an Oh Mickey for more value.
Race 9. 9.25PM Asset Body Corporate Bribie Island Mixed 3/4 – 520 metres
#5 Bobby The Brute – Bet Now
Incredibly well graded for this race, since arriving in Queensland has finishes second in his Fllying Amy Heat and the Group Three final.
He’s slow out but has shown the race sense to get within striking distance from middle draws his last two starts, he only has to keep in touch with them out of the straight to be storming home for his first Queensland win.
Race 10. 9.44PM Box 1 Photography Grade 5 – 520 metres
#6 Isn’t She Special – Bet Now
Has the tag of a professional place getter at Albion Park and if she opens at each way odds I would jump straight on for the place.
Looks to have found a race she can win here, recent form over the 520 metres at Ipswich is good and in a shallow field he should be able to spear out and lead from box six.
There are some other speedy types outside him but more suited to the shorter distance, should have the gas in the tank to lead this a long way.
Race 11. 10.07PM TAB Long May We Play Grade 5 – 520 metres
#3 Fire Drill – Bet Now
A dog with tonnes of ability that hasn’t quite found where he does his best racing, but off recent form looks a live hope here.
Is a winner in quick time over the sprint trip at Ipswich but has recently turned to the middle distance closing off very well at Albion from back in the field and just getting tired late last start at Ipswich over the 630.
The 520 should be middle ground for him, if he can be prominent early expect a big run.
Race 12. 10.25PM Orsen Allen @ Stud Grade 5 – 520 metres
#1 Final Plea – Bet Now
High class Ipswich performer who finally gets his chance to get the Albion Park monkey off his back from a gun draw here.
Recently went 30.27 at Ipswich beating a top-class field and has gone .09 off the 395-track record at Albion Park.
If he can hold his spot early from box one has an exceptional middle and closing sectional, big chance.
