Our Team Give their Views
As followers of this site have come to expect, our expert team of greyhound tipsters have trawled through the list and returned with their views on the best the week has to offer. We put forward our predictions and also inform readers which bookies offer market best price on the most popular dogs. Knowing this is important to those who are serious about beating the bookies and making a long-term profit from gambling on greyhounds.
The best of the week’s action takes place on Saturday when we enjoy the Peter Mosman Opal and Vic Peters Cup. This will give backers more than enough to keep them busy and we’d delighted to report there’s no lack of value around. The earlier you get involved in the betting, the more value you will find. Have your say and support one of the fancied runners or take more of a gamble and go for an outsider with a bigger price attached.
Each-way backers will get the benefit of 1/4 the odds a place 1-2-3. That means you can go for a plucky outsider you believe has more of a chance than the odds suggest. It also means you will see a return on your investment, even if your dog doesn’t win the race. A top three finish will see you paid out on your runner of choice. Let’s take a closer look at the Peter Mosman Opal and how traders at Bet365 expect things to go there.
Draw Has Been Made
We are down to eight runners in this year’s Peter Mosman Opal and the draw has been made, helping shed a little light on how the race should go. 520m at Wentworth Park stands between the starting field and the champion and we also have a couple of reserves in Fancy Francene and Snazzy Ethics. Whether they will play a part or not remains to be seen but if either dog is given the nod you can be sure they will go off at a big price.
The draw has Miley Nismo in trap 1 and that will help the runner’s chances of winning this race and landing the prize money for connections. Zipping Truvy will come out of box two and then we have Start A Riot in three, Flossing T4, Aston Peregrine in five, Really Unreal T6, Mepunga Frankie seven and, lastly, the programme has Vouchers for Mark Gatt coming out of the wide trap. That draw helped shape the betting as it allowed punters and traders to judge each runners chances against past performances from similar low to high draws.
The money men at Bet365 have had their say and they are keen to throw the weight of their support behind Miley Nismo who has been chalked up on the betting board as a convincing jolly. Backers eager to follow the thinking of odds-makers in this race can back the marked leader at 6/4. At the time of writing Bet365 are the only firm of note offering early prices on this race, but we’re sure others will follow as we approach the off.
Traders Have the Quickest Dog Picked
The Nichole Mason trained Miley Nismo is at the head of the betting for good reason as it absolutely smashed the heats of this competition, recording the fastest time and that caught the eye of shrewd backers. They will be desperate to keep on the right side of this runner and the fact the speedster goes out of trap 1 means it should get a clear run to the first bend.
Steering clear of trouble in the early exchanges is vital to winning this race but Miley Nismo has the early electric pace needed to explode out of the boxes and take a keen hold of the contest. From there it will be up to the rivals to serve up a challenge. Traders have the quickest dog in the field picked but, as we have seen many times in the past, that doesn’t guarantee it will win.
Nice Prices Available
There are others with a chance of upsetting the odds and a strong case could be made for the first three or four in the betting. The market has Aston Peregrine as joint-second favourite with Zipping Truvy and you can back either at 4/1 with Bet365. That’s sure to attract a fair share of attention as an each-way bet means you will make a healthy profit if your dog wins or will get your money back if it places second or third. There’s no doubt both Aston Peregrine for Paul Abela and Rob Tyler’s Zipping Truvy have every chance of going close and they will go better than their prices suggest.
Looking further down the pecking order and we see Start A Riot has been marked as an 11/2 play with Bet365, placing it level with Flossing who is also 11/2 at the time of writing. That shows those on the trading floor aren’t too sure how this race will pan out away from the favourite. They have placed their trust in Miley Nismo but aren’t too sure what to expect from the others. That indecision will prove costly if the fav doesn’t live up to expectations.
