Off on our travels for the Greyhound racing tips this week as the graded action at Romford has not been kind to us. It’s off to the south coast and the open class racing at Hove, Thursday night, with a much better class of dog to look at.
20.18 We kick things off with a bitches race at 20.18 where Droopys Cottage can bring home the bacon for the Dean Child’s team. She looked a really nice prospect in the spring before a tumble kept her out of action for a while. She looked in the need of her return but her trials beforehand were sharp and a return to her top grade winning best should suffice. The four will turn left from the traps so she can get a nice tow into the race from the six before pouncing off the last bend.
Betting Tip – Droopys Cottage
21.06 Connections of Benkaat Nero must be cursing their luck, their son of Droopys Scolari getting turned over at Sittingbourne recently in times more than good enough to win the majority of opens there. He doesn’t have instantaneous early which can sometimes get him into first bend trouble but his middle pace and class overcome a slightly tricky draw outside Sidaz Pedro.
Betting Tip – Trap 2 Benkaat Nero
21.40 Cut Him Loose is a late arrival to these shores having already passed his third birthday but he brings with him a very strong Irish card. His trials at Monmore suggest that he is still capable of form of the highest order and despite this being his track debut he has been found a maiden with little in the way of early pace. Both Droopys Beckett and Soviet Kenny boast spritlier legs and represent the main dangers but they will need to up their game to beat the selection.
Betting Tip – Trap 1 Cut Him Loose
22.26 Tiernans Choice is another from a big kennel who should be breaking his open race duck at this meeting. He has an excellent form line at Tralee from May and although his Monmore trials have been solid rather than spectacular he has an opportunity here which he should be more than capable of taking against a field composed mainly of graders.
