Meeting Dashboard – Hobart, Thursday 18 May

17 / 05 / 2017

Thursday evening at Hobart features heats in three divisions of the Greyhound Owners Trainers and Breeder’s Association of Tasmania (G.O.T.B.A.T) over the 461m journey. Race 2 is the first of the division three heats and ZOPRUSH (box 2) for trainer Eileen Thomas performed well enough here last week to suggest a win is not far away and from a suitable box draw he might be hard to beat. IT’S A WINK (box 6) in race 3 for trainer Russell Watts was most impressive when winning at Devonport in fast time and she might be able to lead all of the way. MAHARANI (box 1) in race 5 also for trainer Russell Watts has been performing very well recently and from the ace box draw she looks very hard to beat. FREE SPINS (box 6) in race 6 for trainer Wayne Howells is going to receive clear galloping room early in his event and he might be a bit too strong in the run home for his rivals. The first of the division one heats is race 7 and the very smart STYLISH NIC (box 1) for trainer Anthony Dawson is in red hot form and with the added advantage of the red alley he will looks the one to beat. LOCKWADE SAL (box 6) in race 10 for trainer Rodney Ransley can be a bit fluky at box rise but she may still have enough early speed to lead in her event and she will be hard to run down if she does find the front quickly. Suggested Quadrella is (1,4 – 3,4,6 – 1,3,6,8 – 1,2,5,6,7) cost is $60.00 for a 50% dividend.
