I’ve returned from a very nice holiday in the USA just in time for some sensational greyhound racing over the coming weeks which starts tonight with the running of the 2017 Geelong Cup.
The Geelong Cup is also supported by the Geelong Oaks & Derby.
The 2017 Geelong Derby is Race 6 on tonight’s card and I like the Thompson trained BIG FLOOD who jumps from box 8. He has came back sensationally from his injury layoff and looks extremely hard to beat.
WIN BET – BIG FLOOD
Race 7 is the 2017 Geelong Oaks over the 460m and I’m selecting ASTON DINNIGAN to take home the prize. She is jumping from an awkward draw (box 6) but she should have the speed to cross and be running some hot time.
WIN BET – ASTON DINNIGAN
The 2017 Pet Panels Geelong Gold Cup is a sensational race with plenty of chances. The Geelong Cup is a very good lead up race towards the Melbourne Cup so lookout for these runners at Sandown Park in a few weeks time contesting the biggest race in Greyhound racing!
BEWILDERING will jump the hot favourite from box 6 after his breathtaking heat win running best of the night. JUDICIAL MAN (5) was runner up in this event last year so connections will be hoping he can go one better this year. But I’m selecting the star Queenslander THIRTY TALKS who jumps from box 2 to get the run of the race and take out the Geelong Cup. His heat win last week has to be seen to believe and from the better draw expect him to stalk the early leaders and be to strong.
EACH WAY BET – THIRTY TALKS
Best of luck to all runners & punters on the night!
Hopefully, we can fill our pockets for Saturday night at The Meadows!
