Harry Buchanan’s Friday Greyhound Best Bets


Race 1 No. 7 Trendy Miss

Forgive last week and while the box doesn’t help again, this is much easier and the price will be there to play her EW. Any luck early and she will charge Into this late. 

Race 2 No. 1 Security Guard and No. 7 Our Girl Jupiter

Not a race we need to get stuck into. The 1 went ok behind a star the last time he was here and he is drawn to show up. The 7 has blistering early speed and sustains it. If she leads clearly she is the one they have to mow down and I doubt they will. 

Race 3 No. 2 Unleashed Mayhem

Expecting him to bounce back here. Has a great turn of early speed and 6.18/22.2 means he won’t be beaten if he produces that again. Won 3 from 4 track and trip and looks the one. 

Race 4 No. 4 Solid Tank and No. 1 Junk Yeard Zeus

The 4 will look to go fast and lead here. A bit hit and miss at box rise but goes his 22.3 on the arm which goes close here. The 1 is poised to get a nice run and he could settle forward and be hard to stop late here. Has a good record off the inside. 

Race 5 No. 7 Bezzechi and No. 1 Cadia Gold

First Heat of the Mandurah Derby. The 7 is very promising and looks suited to the circuit. Box isn’t great but has a lot of talent and can offset that. The 1 will lead these a merry dance and if he gets away, he has a 27.30 on him to hold him up. Hard to reel in. 

Race 6 No. 2 Bergelmir and No. 8 Sneaky Emoji 

The 2 gets a great map here and he will track up under the red given any opportunity. Racing well and wins if he hits the front at all. The 8 is a weapon when he’s in. Goes ok here having gone 27 in the past and box is fine. Just needs a good step.

Race 7 No. 2 Kanan Stark and No. 7 All About Coal

The 2 will show up here off a good step. Needs the fence and can track Boomer into the back and take over. He looks good here. The 7 is racing so well for Darren Rowe. 27.15 here and a big last section will see him very hard to hold out. Just needs a look up the back. 

Race 8 No. 7 Sunset Comanche and No. 8 All About Rock

Next heat and just want to see the 7 get some early luck and run into this through the middle section. Can unleash monster run homes when he’s on and will be hard to stop here having has a few looks now. The 8 is another who is going well and while he’s better off the inside, he is handling all draws well and can charge into the placings. 

Race 9 No. 2 Trevor’s Gift and No. 6 Wise Barra

The 2 is enigmatic but very capable and drawn to figure here. Has a 27.2 and can definitely improve on her last two efforts here. The 6 will go well with her early speed and hard to get past style. Races wide so needs to offset that but could get away here. First look here the only issue.
