The Meadows Greyhound Racing Tips
Race 1. 6.29PM Fanta Bale Super Stayers Heat 1 – 725 metres
#5 Sunset Bourbski – $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The short quote is justified here, she’ll give punters a scare dropping out towards the tail early but that’s her racing pattern and in a small field from a wide box she should have every chance to reign them in over the journey.
Ran second in the Listed Gold Cup in Brisbane and third in the Group One Zoomtop, is ready to win.
Race 2. 6.52PM Fanta Bale Super Stayers Heat 2 – 725 metres
#2 Sir Truculent – $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ran fifth here in the Zoomtop last week, was help up early and never looked like a real danger.
Second week back in Victoria after winner the Listed Gold Cup in Brisbane he should be back to his sharpest, take a forward spot from the good draw and take a lot of catching, will stay all day.
Race 3. 7.16PM Fanta Bale Super Stayers Heat 3 – 725 metres
#2 Pilbara – $12 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Probably a shade below some of these at this point in his career but has been coming on in leaps and bounds over the distance of late and could run a cheeky race from a good draw.
Comes in with winning form over the seven hundred metres, will be up there early and go quick in the middle, worth a punt at the double digit price.
Race 4. 7.40PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 1 – 525 metres
#3 Tiggerlong Tonk – $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Big run here last week in the Temlee, was first to show his head out of the boxes but was crowded at the first turn and lost ground but still rallied for an impressive third.
Back him to be on his best box manners again this week, his biggest rival Equalizer will be spotting him a start, looks the winner.
Race 5. 7.58PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 2 – 525 metres
#6 Music Event – $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Has been sharpening up around the one turn tracks in preparation for this assignment, a scorching last to first win last start says he’s ready to go.
Can jump a lot better than he did that day and will need to, ideally get across these and lead with Eagles Nest Egg and Fernando Cazz likely to com at him late.
Race 6. 8.18PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 3 – 525 metres
#1 Earn the Answers – $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bumps into the Temlee winner in Wow here but coming up with box one has the inside running on him, has broken the clock here in the past and can do it again here.
Faithy Bale a quick beginner is drawn directly outside Wow, any hindrance early should see the red rug on the lure and running.
Race 7. 8.40PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 4 – 525 metres
#5 Tommy Shelby – $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looks a good race for the Western Australian champ, he’s a wizard in a field and should make the most of box five with Hadouken in the four looking for the fence.
He’s a dog who’s always second up at a track, has had another week to acclimatise in Melbourne and should be ready to show his best.
Race 8. 9.03PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 5 – 525 metres
#7 Shima Shine – $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Have to give the Group One Superstar a second chance after he was posted off the track in the Temlee, uncharacteristically missed the kick and was running uphill from there.
Still chased his heart out to finish just behind the placings, gets another wide draw and should be able to muster against this field and be somewhere near the lead at the first turn which is all he needs.
Race 9. 9.23PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 6 – 525 metres
#8 Shima Jake – $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Big win here last start from the same draw worked overtime to eventually drive to the lead and run away and impressive three length winner in 29.87.
The only question with him is the class jump, he stacks up on the clock but gives up a lot of experience to Aston Gwen and other main hopes, but will get every chance to run his own race from the pink.
Race 10. 9.48PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 7 – 525 metres
#1 Crazy Cool – $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Queenslander who’s knocked off a Group Three and placed in a couple of Group Two’s and finished second to Shima Shine in the last couple of months.
Got a sighter at the track last week where she was turned sideways about to go to the lead, she won’t have that problem from the red this week and can run slashing time anywhere.
Race 11. 10.10PM TAB Australian Cup Heat 8 – 525 metres
#2 Wallbanger – $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looks the value of the field here, ran fourth n the Group One Rookie Rebel over the six hundred last week only a couple of lengths off the winner and is just as adept over the five hundred metres.
Yozo Bale looks the leader from the one but can be vulnerable late when Wallbanger is getting into his best work.
Race 12. 10.27PM TAB Long May we Play Mixed 4/5 – 525 metres
#5 Chun Li – $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
An underrated performer at the Melbourne metro meets, is always chasing a good one home in strong company, most recently missed out against Gypsy Bun.
Very balanced chaser who can get out of the lids and also finish the race the way she started.
