Richmond Greyhound Racing Tips
Race 1. 7.19PM Welcome to Richmond Race Club Maiden – 330 metres
#8 Princess Buttons – $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Clearly the best of the dogs with exposed form here, a pair of narrow seconds at Gosford reading well to tackle a maiden like this.
She will have to deal with the unknowns of the first starters, but has proved she can jump and run from a wide box which will go a long way to winning this.
Race 2. 7.42PM Thinking of You Matthew Greely Maiden – 400 metres
#6 Baby Buttons – $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
A tough race if you don’t have a definitive opinion, but happy to have this debutant on top, a beautifully bred type out of the classy Azzopardi kennel.
Many a future star has started here for them over the four hundred metres, make sure you keep an eye on who they’re backing.
Race 3. 8.05PM Ladbrokes Red Dog Heat One Fifth Grade Series – 400 metres
#4 Lucky Eleven – $4.50 Bet @ Sportsbet
Has been tuning up over the short course for this race and while she hasn’t cracked a win lately is peaking at the right time and can spear across from box four.
Half of her career win total has come here over the four hundred at Richmond, home track advantage could be huge.
Race 4. 8.23PM Ladbrokes Red Dog Heat Two Fifth Grade Series – 400 metres
#3 Lagoon Alaska – $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
This bitch should have a touch too much class for these, struck out recently in listed grade at Wentworth Park, but this is a big drop back and she knows how to sprint.
A vacant box outside helps and she should have the pace to drive through at the first turn and use the rail if she needs to.
Race 5. 8.42PM Ladbrokes Red Dog Heat Three Fifth Grade Series – 400 metres
#8 Dusky Derek – $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Would probably prefer him out of the red rug but he could turn around his box eight form here with some slower beginners drawn directly inside.
All eight starts have come here at track and trip for three wins and three placings, doesn’t miss the money often.
Race 6. 9.00PM Ladbrokes Red Dog Heat Four Fifth Grade Series – 400 metres
#3 Flighty Fernando – $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Skinny enough at the price but looks a good thing here, going three of four at the track with a searing 22.55 best the others won’t be able to match.
Just hesitated slightly from a similar draw recently, but has won since then and should explode to the top soon after box rise.
Race 7. 9.18PM Ladbrokes Red Dog Heat Five Fifth Grade Series – 400 metres
#7 Zambora Opal – $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Love her from this draw, was a last start winner from box six at rack and trip clocking 22.64 a career best and is seemingly getting better each time she steps out.
Does have a big threat in box eight but if she can hold that chaser early has the strength advantage to kick away around the home turn.
Race 8. 9.37PM GRNSW Middle Distance Series Grade 5 – 618 metres
#7 Zipping Ontario – $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Short enough but should just be winning this, locally trained by the leading Finn kennel has dominated this distance range and is comfortably the best of the night.
Musters well from a wide draw and will be happy to sit outside them and use the expanses of his home track to take ground off these in the middle section and on the way home.
Race 9. 10.00PM The Conor Your Honour Meade Grade 5 – 330 metres
#4 Key Key – $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Queenslander who’s seeing the track for the first time, but comes down with confidence after a career best performance jumping to the front on a tricky corner start at Ipswich.
If she makes it to the front there won’t be any tracking her down given her form over the longer trips.
Race 10. 10.22PM Sending Well Wishes Alan Grade 5 – 330 metres
#6 Harding Park – $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Only knocked over his maiden last start but has been right there time wise and will take great confidence coming out of box six again.
Dodgy Nick in five could cause some chaos heading for the fence giving this dog a saloon passage and a second career win.
Race 11. 10.40PM Ladbrokes Easy Form Non-Graded 1-4 – 400 metres
#3 Cruise or Lose – $15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
One for the each-way punters here this local product has been playing his trade in town and while he hasn’t been up to that standard is a proven commodity in this class.
Can recapture the box manners he’s shown most of his career and threaten early to give a few of these a scare.
Race 12. 11.00PM Ladbrokes Cash In Mixed ¾ – 330 metres
#8 Funky Girl – $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Loves it out wide here over the shorts, has a first section of 4.4 from box eight which is unmatched in this field, should be jumping, leading and winning.
Looking for her sixth win in eight starts here having never missed a placing.

Having worked as a greyhound racing journalist for more than 10 years, Murphy has an astute ability to match up various form lines to find the best value in each race he analyses and he enjoys nothing more than pulling off a huge plunge. As a greyhound owner himself, Murphy loves cheering home a live winner down the road at Albion Park or at the pub on Sky Racing, and he hopes to tip you a few winners too!
