Welcome toâ€™s free for Friday 3rd July 2009 with tonight from Geelong (Victoria), Richmond (New South Wales) and selected races from Mandurah (West Australia).
Hopefully weâ€™ll see some goodaction tonight with coming from Geelong (Victoria), Richmond (New South Wales) and selected races from Mandurah (West Australia), lets just recap betting advice for those tracks.
Geelong is considered to be a safe punting track especially over the 457m distance. The 347m starts are usually plagued by interference and terrible betting races, box 1 is an advantage and box 3 has a good record of this trip. The few 600m races run can produce good results but the short run to 1st corner has caused more than one betting plunge to go astray and does give an advantage to the box 1 runner. Over the 457m boxes 1 and 8 both share favouritism with the next most preferred draw box 7.

Welcome toâ€™s free for Tuesday 21st April 2009 with tonight from tonight from Albion Park (Queensland), Gosford (New South Wales), Lismore (New South Wales), Warrnambool (Victoria) and Mandurah (West Australia).
Tonight’s racing features 12 heats of the Group 2 Warrnambool Classic, but depsite the Group 2 status of the race, most races are dominated by only one or two runners without a lot of depth, so be prepared to very short priced winners and extreme upsets, when they occur.
Master Victorian greyhound trainer, Darren McDonald has five runners entered and as far as we can tell they all trialled at the track last week running between 25.30 and 25.60. That’ll be good enough to win all their heats and with most dogs running average first sections last week, they should be further improved with the look at the track.

This weekâ€Ÿs final of the Group 1 Sky Channel Perth Cup is set up for a classic finish after 8 exciting heats last Saturday night at Cannington, that were dominated by Mantra Lad’s sensational win running the second quickest time around Cannington in history.
The opening heat was won by veteran Victorian chaser Trew Millions (Brett Lee-Chloe Jones) who came from fifth early to race clear of Son Of Penske in 30.51 for trainer Tina Womann.
Womann came across last year with Trew Millions, however the talented chaser had little luck in finishing third in his heat.

Welcome toâ€™s free for Saturday 13th March 2009. Friday nightâ€™s racing produced some good results again and some near misses for a pretty much neutral night.
After Party won very well at the exceptionally good price of $7.57 at Geelong, while Ravenstoke and Marmalade Sky did the job at Richmond although at short odds. Kaygee was a near miss at Geelong leading in to the straight after working hard to get there and only just getting run down by the favourite while paying well over $7.00 the win.
