12 races set down for decision this Saturday night at The Meadows with the first due to kick off at 7.18pm.
The stayers duel in Race 5 on the program over the 725 with the final of the Bendigo to The Meadows series. With the heats conducted at Bendigo over 660m last week, I think Express Lane will prove the hardest to beat here. After beginning moderately last week, she pulled to the outside and finished strongly winding up a gutsy second (Replay) and with the ideal box draw she can loop the field into the early lead and prove so very hard to catch. I believe Tribal Faith is the strongest greyhound in the race but where she positions early will be the key to her chances.
The free for all see’s a terrific clash with the reigning Melbourne Cup winner Dyna Villa going head to head with The Meadows 525m track record holder Allen Deed (pictured). They appear the main two chances in what appears a very very good race on paper and I wouldn’t be surprised to see Dyna Alchemist run a cheeky race from the suitable inside draw.
Rumero Reason appears perfectly drawn in Race 7 from the rails alley. With two natural wide runners drawn his outside, I think Rumero Reason will find himself sitting in a lovely spot mid-race eventuating in a dashing runaway win. Despite finding trouble when taking the lead here three runs ago, (Replay) he should a great will to win and I believe that will carry him to victory here against a very handy field.
Later on in the night I’m keen on the likes of Spring Leaf, Dyna Keitaro and Senor Grumpy who has been in flying form including a red hot 25.01 gallop around Ballarat two runs back (Replay). With a solid night of greyhound racing with class throughout the meeting, We arrive at a slightly later finish at 11.02pm. It’s good luck and happy punting.
