The Meadows Greyhound Racing Tips
Race 1. 6.39PM Sky Racing Final Mixed 6/7 – 525 metres
#7 Tom The Cheap -$4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Has been a perennial place getter over his career but a last start win here at The Meadows in a more than respectable 30.17 clip might be the turning point.
Doesn’t go up much in grade, will have to contend with an outside box this week, but doesn’t need to lead to win can run on into the frame.
Race 2. 6.59PM Shepparton to The Meadows Final 1-4 Wins – 525 metres
#1 Handsome Rhino – $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Didn’t skip a beat coming back from a ten-week spell last week and running them ragged at Shepparton, comes back to the five hundred with a run under his belt and a gun draw to boot.
Has excelled from box one early in his career going at a hundred percent strike rate, the kennel’s in form as well.
Race 3. 7.18PM TAB Venue Mode Restricted Win 3-6 Final – 525 metres
#6 Karen’s Delight – $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hard to ignore this chasers form with a hattrick of wins and a couple of minors in her last five starts, is third up at The Meadows this week and should be challenging the thirty second mark with a clear run.
With all the pace drawn inside she should get a good run across and come into the race when it matters.
Race 4. 7.38PM TOPCAT Video Grade 5 Heat 1 – 525 metres
#8 Mepunga Isla – $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Class personified, is a Group winner over the six hundred but has been just as effective over the sprint of late.
She’s always a huge chance when she draws box eight a seven time winner from the draw she always seems to find a few extra lengths, not that she needs them.
Race 5. 8.00PM TAB Multiplier Grade 5 – 600 metres
#1 Drako Bale – $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Big fan of what this dog’s been doing lately, was a brilliant winner here from box eight four starts ago coming from well back in the field to swamp them on the post.
Remains to be seen how he’ll use box one, but it’ll hopefully put him right behind the leaders and ready to make a run.
Race 6. 8.20PM Home of Ten Group 1’s Mixed ¾ – 525 metres
#4 Gypsy Bun – $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Doesn’t have the recent wins of a lot of her rivals but is getting back to the track and trip after a stint sprinting over the four hundred which really isn’t his go.
Is drawn well here to win the speed battle early, push past the inside boxes and set up a race winning break.
Race 7. 8.38PM TAB.COM.AU Mixed 4/5 – 600 metres
#7 I’m Easy Boys – $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Is adept over both the six and seven hundred and has been racing well wherever he’s been placed of late and there should be no exception here if he gets clear air to his outside.
Not likely to be on the speed but is always on the move in the run and is a great each-way prop at the quote.
Race 8. 8.57PM Gr8 Eight Series Special Event – 525 metres
#5 Weblec Jet – $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Not the best dog in the race but a combination of form and box draws has him sitting pretty to take some serious scalps in this top class series.
Christo Bale in the red in the big danger but can dwell and the start and get bottled away on the fence, this dog has been jumping flawlessly at Sandown and can do the same here.
Race 9. 9.20PM KCR Pet Transport Grade 5 Heat 2 – 525 metres
#6 Arizona Gold – $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Drops back in trip after a run of outs over the six hundred, punters shouldn’t be too discouraged by the form the dog has been on pace in all of his races but has just found the competition too tough late.
Back to the sprint with a vacant box inside if he can put himself in the front half again is a big danger.
Race 10. 9.43PM Fekuai Greyhounds Grade 5 Heat 3 – 525 metres
#1 Eagles Nest Egg – $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looks one of the better bets of the night, had been struggling for form here at The Meadows and was sent back to Geelong last start for a confidence boosting win which should have him ready to go.
Group class performer at his best and is a mad railer, looks to be his race to win or lose.
Race 11. 10.02PM Greyhound Clubs Victoria Grade 5 Heat 4 – 525 metres
#2 Byron Bale – $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Has looked as good as a dog can coming off a pair of runner-up’s and a fourth his last three starts, has boxed well almost found the front but just run into trouble at the wrong time.
Looks to be right on the verge of a win and from a cosy draw in the two should challenge for the front early and lead these home.
Race 12. 10.18PM themeadows.org.au Grade 5 Heat 5 – 525 metres
#5 Wedding Or Baby – $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Speedy type that should get his chance to find the front early with no pace either side expect him to be pushing for the front which is where he needs to be to win this race.
Can get tired late but grows another leg when he gets on the bunny running.
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!
