Harry Buchanan’s Thursday Greyhound Best Bets


Race 5 No. 8 Sunset Pacquiao 

Well boxed here and will muster up out wide to out himself in the race early. Runs time and will threaten turning for home if he hasn’t already. A lot of speed charging together on the inside will give him his chance. 

Race 6 No. 2 Molotov Boy and No. 6 All About Rock 

The 2 has taken the next step at Cannington and arguably goes even better here. Will get up there early and he sticks on and runs time. The 6 has also lifted lately and this circuit is working for him. Strong performer who gets into things quickly up the back here. Hits the frame with any luck. 

Race 8 No. 6 Scientist and No. 7 Buddy’s Mate

The 6 gets relief in company and will push forward as usual to try and lead. Gives a great sight and hard to get past if he gets the arm. The 7 will get dragged over quickly and he’s a force when he lands close. Good effort last time and a repeat sees him threaten. 

Race 10 No. 8 Buster Moon

His form is not good but don’t let that deter you. If this bloke steps and punches up out wide, he can get a spot here and win. Goes a lot better than his form shows and will stun these if he gets the start right. EW at the very least. 

Race 11 No. 6 Escapologist and No. 1 Stay Amused 

The 6 will take a lot from her run last time. Had a let up prior and can run into this strongly. Has raced better dogs in the past. Will be a good quote as well. The 1 is well drawn and getting one more go. Disappointed last week over the shorter trip but can atone back to the 400m. Keep her in mind. 


Launching Pad Final night and a quality card of racing.

Race 1 No. 2 Henry Intention 

Racing well and drawn to be a top two show here. 

Race 2 No. 7 Cabao Lapis

Monster win last time and drawn to give a similar sight. Gets back but has a tremendous last section. 

Race 3 No. 4 Piccolo Bale

Small field suits and can land handy here. Will hit the top two spot with early luck. 

Race 4 No. 7 Fast Minardi

Star Tasmanian who will look to swish straight over and on to the arm. If he does, that’s it and it’s check mate. 

Race 5 No. 3 Bun Storm and No. 5 Ethanol Water

The 3 is a highly promising type who was excellent in her semi. Better drawn and a major force here. The 5 was slightly disappointing last week but she’s better than that and the winner did run some time. She’s a threat. 

Race 6 No. 6 Humidity and No. 1 Peaky Boo 

The Launching Pad final. The 6 has a dazzling turn of acceleration and he could skate over here and give these all sorts to catch. The 1 is boxed to give a great show for the SA team and just needs to step well and hold a spot. He’s strong. 

Race 7 No. 8 Ethanol Volume and No. 7 King Owen

The run of the 8 last week was enormous. Boxed to perfection here and will charge over many of these once he gets balanced. The 7 is a long play smokie. Can reel off good middle and last sections and can surprise here EW. 

Race 8 No. 3 Orli Bale and No. 8 Fred Rose

The 3 will go much better back over this trip. Just needs to land close. The 8 was good last time and will find a bit more this week. Can hit the frame at last at a price. 

Race 9 No. 1 Nitro Harvey and No. 2 Willa Bale

The Tassie in 1 will be winning if his best arrives. Boxed to give these too much to catch. The 2 is not at her top but she’s drawn to get her chance to show something here and could land closer. Don’t ignore her. 

Race 10 No. 1 Dewanna Fernando and No. 2 Funny Old Fellow

The 1 finally draws a box and he will be very hard to stop now. Gets a charmed run and keeps coming. The 2 can be a little tardy early but makes good ground and has raced some handy dogs lately. Watch for him late. The red hard to stop here though. 

Race 11 No. 7 Darnum Diesel 

Up and coming type who will go well if he gets into a spot. Strong run last week and will look to go one better here if he is close enough to drop his strong run home.
