The Gardens Greyhound Racing Tips
Race 1. 6.07PM Welcome to Newcastle Maiden – 272 metres
#5 Milky Lane – $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Not a whole lot to go on here but can see this bitch getting a very nice trip, she lead last start over the four hundred and got tired, she comes back to the Gardens over the shorts and is capable of pinging again.
There is a vacant box inside her and then speed in the three but she has the capacity to loom up on the turn and not relinquish the lead on the way home.
Race 2. 6.27PM No Donuts Maiden – 400 metres
#5 Izzy’s Magic – $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
This well bred bitch was a clear leader on debut over a similar distance at Taree just didn’t handle the track, The Gardens is a lot more straight forward and her early dash will be key.
She has debutants either side of her, so she’ll want to get the fly and skip away from any potential traffic.
Race 3. 6.52PM Go the 5’s Wazza Mixed 4/5 – 515 metres
#6 Rocket Force – $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The track and distance specialist has an impressive resume here, four wins and a couple of minors from seven starts he’s only missed out once and is primed to go again here.
Meets a couple of handy short course dogs in the low boxes, but with his experience he should get the camp on them and surge by in the run home.
Race 4. 7.09PM Mobile Money Grade 5 – 400 metres
#1 Melissa’s Legend – $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
This daughter of Fernando Bale is built for speed and she showed plenty of it streaking away on debut at track and trip, box five no barrier with her early dash.
She went straight for the rail on debut and starting from box one should get out running and be a little stronger to the line second up.
Race 5. 7.28PM Ladbroke It! Grade 5 – 400 metres
#4 Double Stags – $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
This is a test for this dog who’s been doing great things over the three hundred and four hundred metres at provincial circuits, it’s time to see if form travels.
More than happy to take the each-way gamble it does, he’s a brilliant beginner and has gone close on all three occasions here at The Gardens.
Race 6. 7.47PM Newcastle Commercial Refrigeration Grade 5 – 400 metres
#7 Magic Mavis – $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Will still be riding high off a sterling win from box eight at track and trip just a couple of starts ago, has never had trouble winding up over the four hundred from a wide box.
She’s a winner everywhere she’s gone over this journey and the Gardens is no exception, the price looks generous.
Race 7. 8.10PM Keybow @ Stud Grade 5 – 400 metres
#2 Star Hotel – $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Prolific winner who’s had a tough time of it lately, a faller two starts ago before he dwelt last time missing the kick.
You can’t keep a good dog down and this is the ideal bounce back race, his favoured track and trip from an alley he can ping and make his own luck from.
Race 8. 8.28PM GRNSW Middle Distance Series – 600 metres
#4 Miyazaki – $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Made the long trip from the Northern Rivers to run over the six hundred metres here last start and was mighty impressive running a close second on the tight turning track.
Will rely on a bit of luck to the first turn but given galloping room is the strongest of this field by lengths and should be primed second up.
Race 9. 8.47PM Bishop Collins 1-3 Win Grade 5 – 515 metres
#3 Blue Carat – $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Another talented chaser down from the Northern Rivers, this dog has been owning this distance at Lismore and finished only behind the freakish Zipping Maserati recently at Grafton.
Class wise he’s got the edge on these connections will be hoping he handles his new surroudings, if he does he’s winning.
Race 10. 9.12PM From the Track 1-3 Win Grade 5 – 515 metres
#6 Top Quality – $1.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The price is rock bottom but there’s not a better sprinting talent coming out of Newcastle at the moment, he’s been lighting up the clock over four hundred and is poised to do the same over the five.
Should lead these for fun and on a front runners track it’ll be times and margins.
Race 11. 9.35PM Awesome Project – 400 metres
#7 Miss Granger – $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Has another speedster inside her but if her manners are on she can follow him early and turn on the gas as they swing for home.
Owner of a sizzling 22.58 win here from box eight, well above these if she can produce something similar.
Race 12. 9.57PM Steve Whalland Race Images Mixed 4/5 – 400 metres
#3 Songstar Red Gum – $7.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Has a couple of jets drawn inside her but there’s a high likelihood they come together early giving her an uninhibited run to the rail.
Once on the arm she knows what to do around here, more than worthy of an each-way punt.
Murphy is an absolute greyhound racing tragic. If he’s not eating or sleeping, he’s consuming as much greyhound content as he can get his hands on. 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!
