Angle Park | 23 September

1. DANYO’S CHARLIE (Box 1)

This is the first of two match races that are tricky to get a read on from a form perspective with his opponent having no race form at the venue. Annoyingly, Danyo’s Charlie has been raced sparingly of late so he isn’t at peak fitness yet. However, he has had two starts over this renovated circuit and his last run here in 30.67 was excellent and he didn’t have the best luck in running. The winner of that race Meet Joe Black has been in red hot form. Considering he will be a big outsider in this match up, he has been disrespected in early markets and I wouldn’t be shocked if he could win this.

2. WEBLEC BLAZER (Box 3)

Weblec Blazer returned to form with a super win last start at Sandown Park in a slick 29.44. He is a dog that isn’t known for his early zip and is known for explosive mid race speed and run home times so he is suited by the format. However, he has never had a race at this venue and it can be a tricky circuit first look. Considering that race at Sandown Park was on September 16 and with the current border procedures I would doubt he has been given a trial at the venue. In theory, this match race would be the trial for an Adelaide Cup Campaign so at an extremely short quote in early markets I am going to have a small lay bet here with minimal risk.

Betting Strategy

LAY (WIN) — Weblec Blazer at $1.20 for 4 units

3. MAJOR MAJOR (Box 1)

Major Major is a veteran SA chaser who has returned to his best form of late, albeit against much weaker opponents than Stout Monelli. He is well drawn on the rails but he would have to really lift to beat Stout Monelli here. They both had recent wins over this trip, albeit on different dates but Stout Monelli went 5 lengths quicker. He looks to have drawn the short straw here.

4. STOUT MONELLI (Box 3)

Stout Monelli goes into this event as the in form chaser and local dog to beat. He will be very short here but I think he really should win this with a leg in the air based on current form. His two recent wins over this trip have been in red hot fields in 30.53 and 30.32.  I think he is capable of going better than that in this format. Major Major should go left at box rise so he should get that galloping room to accelerate and hit the early lead. He looks to be a huge over on the overall market having experience at this new venue and only traveling and kennelling locally is a big 1%er that I want up my sleeve when we could be dealing in hundredths of a second in an event that is timer related.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Stout Monelli at $1.18+ for 9 units

5. JACK’S WELL (Box 1)

Jack’s Well is second up from a spell here after resuming with a super run here against Stout Monelli last week. He has run really well getting beat but still running 30.45, a time that would win most races since this venue re-opened.

Based on the run he has plenty of upside here and will be improved fitness wise and a second look at the venue. The inside draw is also a plus and he has opened up insulting odds of $4.50 + in some early markets and I think he is a great chance to win this match up.

6. WEBLEC JET (Box 3)

Weblec Jet falls into the same category as Weblec Blazer in that he is hard to assess given he has raced at this venue before, but only on the old track. The new track is different enough that I would still prefer the greyhound had a race start here before I stepped in at ridiculously short odds. He also hasn’t raced in 3.5 weeks so he may have had an issue. He is a strong dog who will keep coming late in this event but I am leaning the way of Jack’s Well at the likely price discrepancy.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Jack’s Well at $4.00+ for 1 unit

7. ASTON RUPEE (Box 1)

Aston Rupee smashed the track record at Sandown Park last start in an astonishing 28.79. Absolute lunacy. He comes over for this match race series with the Adelaide Cup in mind. The greyhound that runs the fastest time of these four match ups gets a ticket straight into the final of the Adelaide Cup. Whilst I would have preferred him to have had a trial here, he is such a classy conveyance and freak that he should still be far too good for Rushes here. He can absolutely win the overall as well but is extremely short well into red figures and Stout Monelli is way better value each way.

8. RUSHES (Box 3)

Rushes is a star local who has probably been the best dog in SA over the past year. His 30.47 all the way win here will be extremely competitive in this but I expect Aston Rupee to be going straight by him late.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Aston Rupee at $1.14+ for 7.5 units

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) — Stout Monelli at $8.00+ for 1 unit
