We enjoyed the thrill of the Irish Greyhound Derby round three races last weekend and there will be more of the same to come but we focus our attention on what promises to be an exciting renewal of the Champions Stakes this Friday. Here are our top Greyhounds 6 September betting tips.
A Closer Look
A star-studded field makes for a competitive ante-post betting market and the earlier you get your cash down on the dog of your choice, the more value coming your way. There’s a higher risk punting at this stage, of course, as your pick may not reach the latter stages, never mind win the tournament, but fortune favours the brave and that has been factored into the price.
Bookmakers have made their feelings clear at this point and have Ballymac Diego pinned to the head of the charts with backers able to find no more than 9/2 when betting at William Hill. That’s about what you would expect at this stage but there’s not a lot between the first six in the betting, no more than three points, in fact, and that tells us to settle in for a thriller.
A Desperado Win
Each-way players will benefit from place terms of 1/4 the odds 1-2-3, meaning your pick only has to reach the final and finish in the first three to bag you a return. That gives us the opportunity to take a chance on one at a bigger price for a small stake and the one we’re having our cash down on is Desperado Dan. It has plenty of early pace and is good enough to make the final. Follow at William Hill for top price 17/2. If we get the run we’re expecting you could cash-out for a profit later in the tournament.
