Racing writer, JUSTIN DEVINE, looks at tonight’s meetings and singles out his best greyhound racing tips for tonight’s huge Group 1 races at The Meadows. Good luck Punters!
The Meadows R5 – G1 Hume Cup 600m
JARICK BALE (4) is a two-time Group 1 winner who has a huge motor and a good record at the track and trip. He will need some luck mid-race but is capable of powering home. He will be hard to hold out. Queensland visitor POCKET MONEY (8) sizzled around the track to win his heat last week and will be hard to catch with a clear run in the lead. Box 8 looks a concern for him and that’s why I am betting against him.
Tip: JARICK BALE @ $4
The Meadows R6 – G1 Top Gun Stayers 730m
With the scratching of SUPER ESTRELLA, this race looks wide open. OH OH RANGE (1) won well over 715m at Albion Park two runs back before making up good ground despite a chequered run over 600m last start. Drawn perfectly in box 1 tonight, he can hug the rails and finish strongly. The $6+ on offer looks like great value. FANTASTIC RADLEY (5) has won seven of his last eight runs in Adelaide and has enough early speed to cross from box 5. He is capable of adding some value into the exotics at a double-figure quote.
Tip: OH OH RANGE @ $6.50
The Meadows R8 – G1 Top Gun 525m
WOW SHE’S FAST (5) had no luck in the Group 1 Adelaide Cup last start and has been cleared of any injuries by the vet since then. An explosive beginner she can lead from box 5 and that should be the race. It looks that simple. McINERNEY (3) continues to race well and won the Million Dollar Chase recently. He is once again over the odds at the double-figure quote and is the danger.
