Greyhound Racing Tips: Expert Previews

Welcome to our Greyhound Racing Tips page. Our Greyhound Analysts will provide back and lay selections for selected cards, along with previewing the biggest group races across the racing calendar, also giving their best selections for the race with a preview on every single runner.

Go where the value is on Greyhound Racing and head to the Betfair Exchange.

Our Data Scientists have also built a VIC, QLD, NSW and SA Greyhound Racing Model to produce Greyhound Tips. You will find rated prices for every greyhound race in all three states which are influenced by sectional time data, box number, market prices and many other variables.

You can access that model here.

Betfair is a low margin exchange, just like Airbnb. We create markets for punters to take on punters. And we want winners.

Wentworth Park | Friday 15 January

Race 1 — National Futurity Heat 1

Weblec Pearl will take a great deal of benefit from her first look at the track here last week. Rather than her trialling, the Jeff Britton kennel threw her straight into the deep end in a strong race and even though she has come up with another squeeze draw, I think she might be able to lead all the way here, especially if she can begin as well as last week.

Ice Cream Story would be the best greyhound in this race and with the most track experience, but she was fortunate she had the red last week when getting up right on the line. Now she goes to box 8, where she will find it more tricky this time around.

Carry On Star is more than capable of winning this but without a race start at this venue I am leaning towards Weblec Pearl.

BACK (WIN) — Weblec Pearl at $5.00+ for 1 unit

Race 3 — National Futurity Heat 3

This is easily the best of the three heats but On The Rocks is a star in the making and she has a fantastic race pattern. She can explode out of the boxes and pinch a huge mid-race break on her rivals. The fact she is still racing against her age group and in a bitches race look huge ticks for mine.

Sarita is also a fantastic chaser with plenty of upside but On The Rocks has been racing in higher quality races, including a win in a heat The Laurels at Sandown Park. Even though it’s a slight concern she hasn’t raced since she came 6th in The Laurels final on December 17th but this would be factored into her attractive early price of $2.60 in early markets with the corporates. She looks the best bet of the three Futurity Heats.

BACK (WIN) — On The Rocks at $2.60+ for 2.5 units

Race 4 — National Derby Heat 1

Although I think Do It is a dead set gun, I have always considered him a Box 1 bandit so Box 8 looks a huge negative. He was smartly given a look around the circuit in a strong Free For All race here last week and although he did look lost throughout he will take plenty of benefit from the run. But from Box 8 I just don’t like his race pattern, he can be risky away and he will be hunting for the rail at some point and this could prove costly. If he was to lead clearly early I doubt they would catch him but I am going to take my chances that doesn’t happen.

The fact it’s not one of the stronger heats could be another negative for Do It as the field thins out quickly and his main rival, Eagles Nest Egg looks to have a great draw, which hopefully negates the fact he hasn’t had a race start at the track. The 29.10 win at Sandown Park looks very attractive on the resume in a restricted age race.

LAY (WIN) — Do It at up to $5.50 for 1 unit

Race 6 — National Derby Heat 3

Kuro Kismet can be a very frustrating greyhound to watch. When watching him run you can tell he’s a very fast greyhound with a stack of ability but he can be a complete boofhead who makes a stack of mistakes in the run.

Importantly, trainer Matthew Clark gave him a look at the venue here last month and he was far from disgraced. He began like a stone but from the first turn onwards he was a super run. If he can begin more speedily and cleanly I think he is right in this and looks a great each-way play.

Music Event is the best overall quality greyhound in the race but Box 7 is a nightmare at Wentworth Park statistically and with Lenny Cortez a speedy conveyance early there could be room for some trouble which adds to my each-way confidence of Kuro Kismet here.

BACK (EW) — Kuro Kimset at $8.50/$2.30+ for 1 unit each way

Race 8 — National Derby Heat 5

Ritza Tommy has been on the end of some poor box draws in his last three starts here at Wentworth Park and at Dapto. He is only a moderate beginner and his race pattern is suited to him getting a bit of early luck and railing through.

If he can get that luck by the time they are down the back straight and in clear galloping room he can really start revving up the engine. From Box 2 here in restricted age company, I think he is worth another chance.

Cash View is still learning the caper and I’m not sure if Box 1 will suit his pattern and if he spears off at the first turn Ritza Tommy could be there to pounce.

BACK (WIN) — Ritza Tommy at $5.00+ for 2 units

Race 9 — National Derby Heat 6

Romantic Storm has been in too good a form and I just can’t go past him here. The box draw looks a positive for him as he is a keen railer. Earlier in his career he was very risky early and needed everything to go right early in his races. Now he is becoming more reliable and is really learning how to race. Tyler Durden can use plenty of the track so that should help his chances.

Whilst this does look one of the weaker heats, it is not a race I am overall fussed on and Romantic Storm is just worth a small play.

BACK (WIN) — Romantic Storm at $3.75+ for 1 unit

Race 10 — National Derby Heat 7

Weblec Jet dropping back to his own age group looks a massive plus here. He has been mixing it with top company for several months and he really should be blowing these rivals away. The only reason I wouldn’t be blasting here is the fact that he hasn’t had a race start at the track. If he is within 3 or 4 of the leader down the back straight he should be finishing too powerfully to end the night on a winner.

BACK (WIN) — Weblec Jet at $1.75+ for 2 units
