Racing writer, JUSTIN DEVINE, looks at tonight’s meetings and singles out his top three greyhound racing tips for Richmond, Gawler and Sale. Good luck, punters! 

Richmond R6 – Grade 5 618m

18:39 (AEST)

VALENTINA BALE (1) led all the way to win at the track and distance two runs back, before finishing two lengths behind the winner last start from box 5. Drawn much better in box 1 tonight, she has enough speed to find the front and be hard to catch. The $4+ on offer looks a terrific price. TIGER HOLLY (4) wasn’t far away last start but has an awkward draw in box 4. She will chase hard throughout, but struggle to catch VALENTINA BALE. The pair can clear out from the rest of the field.


Gawler R8 – Special Event 400m 

20:09 (AEST)

CRAZY DIVA (1) has gone down as a short-priced favourite at her last two runs but has got the gun box draw tonight. A winner of seven from 10 at the track and distance she only needs a clean getaway to be too good in the run home. VICTA BUZZ (5) is a speedy beginner who is capable of pinging the lids and giving her rivals something to catch. She is one to include in exotics.

 Tip: CRAZY DIVA @ $1.85

Sale R9 – Mixed 6/7 440m   

20:42 (AEST)

DR CARMEL (4) has been an all the way winner at two of her last three runs and will get plenty of space early with a vacant box to her outside. She has the best PB of all the runners engaged in the race and if she can find the front it will be race over. HAVE A SUMMER (8) continues to improve and looks well placed to fill the quinella spot.

Tip: DR CARMEL @ $3
