We kick-start the Mandurah card with a 12-race programme, for which there is a Money Back Special on 2nd and 3rd to a SP Fav on all races (max stake 10 quid).
The first race we’re going to look at is race 2, Grade N over 405m due off at 11:04. The most in-form dog in the line up is Trap 6 Lou Lee. This lady won on debut in August of last year, had been off until last month, possible season break when running seventh on that start, probably was a bit rusty but showed no ill effects when appearing at the start of this month and winning over C&D, she is staying in the same grade and can only improve again and the one to side with to win again.
Race 4, due off at 11:46, is a class 5 race, and the yellow jacket of Trap 5 Try Catch Tanya has been a revelation for owner and trainer in recent weeks. She started her career in mid-March and has managed to win her first three races which is quite rare. This March 18 lady probably wouldn’t be much value in the betting ring going for a fourth victory in a row but could be worth sitting back and watching this wonderful greyhound.
Race 5 is the best race of the meeting and is due off at 12:10. Trap 2 is scratched leaving us with a field of seven and Trap 6’s Withers Monelli, who is owner trained, has been running really well. Another march 18 lady also bred by Fernando Bale has managed back to back wins, one at Cannington and here over track and trip last time out. The effort here less than a week ago was a career best effort so as a result she gets the Nap vote to go in again.
Race 7 due off at 12:50, is a slightly shorter trip of 302m, so early pace will win this race. Judging by their early speed sectionals this could be a right buckle to the opening bend. Trap 8 She Can Party in the pretty pink had been running over slightly further recently. Back over today’s distance, when third not beaten all that far last time, has had 17 runs over today’s trip and has managed to win four times and could do so again.
The final race we going to look at is race 12, due off at 14:25, trap 5 Flash Spolly has won three of her last four but I am siding with Trap 8 Junk Yard Spot. This dog has had 10 career starts and won five of those but the stat with a 100% is the trap. Any time this dog has ran over today’s distance and in trap 8, he has managed to win. Since Feb this dog has had three career-best efforts so if he can keep his good form in trap 8 going lets hope so and he can win again.
