It’s an important week for those with their finger on the pulse of the greyhound racing scene with fixtures of note taking place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Sunday. Finals will be decided, and champions crowned while punters can also have their say on a number of antepost markets, backing dogs to win or with the benefit of each-way. Here are our top July 28 greyhound betting tips.
3 Steps to Victory is raced to a conclusion on Tuesday and that’s followed by Wednesday’s Ted Lloyd Classic. The best of the schedule takes place at the weekend, however, and that’s where we focus our attentions. The latest from the Maturity Classic helps us round off the week and followers are guaranteed drama before the numbers are whittled down towards a final field and the results added to the books.
Accumulator Betting Offers Value for Money
You can have your say on each of the week’s biggest races or throw a few selections together to create a nice priced multiple, such as a patent, combination doubles or accumulator. The acca gives customers real value for money as it offers an interest over a few different races, all for just one stake. Bet on each race and you’ll also find a list of exciting markets available. Have your say on the winner, play each-way or get your cash down on a forecast or tricast.
There’s even match betting offered by many major firms. With this type of bet you are challenged with predicting which of two dogs will finish higher in the positions. They could come first and second or fifth and sixth, it really doesn’t matter to your pay out. As long as your pick beats the dog it’s included in the match bet with, you’ll boost your betting balance.
You can watch UK and Irish greyhound racing for free with major sports betting firms and this can be done on your desktop or through a mobile app. Ladbrokes are just one firm that allows customers to watch live greyhound racing through an HD quality stream at no extra cost, as long as they have placed a bet on the outcome.
We focus our attentions on Sunday’s Maturity Classic and at the time of writing there’s 10 dogs still in the running. Bet365 are the only online bookmaker of note offering odds on the competition outright at this stage with the market ranging from an 11/5 favourite through to a couple of 50/1 outsiders. That’s quite a range but the odds tell us we can safely write off up to four selections as dogs with little chance of winning.
That leaves us with a more competitive market, and you could throw a blanket over the first four in the list. Traders appear to be at a loss to nail down the eventual winner of this tournament and that will catch the eye of value hunters who love taking advantage of any indecision on the trading floor. The money men have taken up position on the fence and challenged punters to sort it out for themselves, offering competitive odds to those who believe they have the answer.
At the time of publishing we have joint favourites at Bet365 with both Jebrynah and Sennachie carrying an 11/5 price tag. A strong case could be made for either coming out on top, but is it worth taking sides or should you allow your eyes to run further down the pecking order and pick a plucky outsider with a bigger price attached? Feral Franky is third in line at 3/1 and is closely tracked by Tauwitchere at 4/1. We then get into the territory of those who would cause an upset if they were to win, 13/2 bar. Those runners would suit an each-way bet in the hope of them landing a place. Each-way backers will benefit from place terms of 1/4 the odds a place 1-2-3 at this stage.
No Surprises in the Betting
Jebrynah has landed owners a chunk of prize money during his career and it would come as no surprise to see him go on and win this trophy. Traders new they had a good one picked when pinning Jebrynah to the head of the antepost market and followers are sure to get a run for their money if they choose to put their trust in the traders. If he does win, he’ll do well to shake off the attentions of Sennachie who boasts both the experience and breeding to go close here.
The runner to carry our attentions is Feral Franky as we believe he has been overpriced and overlooked by the traders when attaching a 3/1 (Bet365) price tag to his chances of winning. That would suggest he’s in with a chance but would need to serve up a career best performance to upset the favourites. That may be true, but we are confident he has it in him.
The selection arrives at track with recent form on side and there’s real confidence in the camp. He has the early pace needed to ping the traps and hit the front coming off the first bend. If he’s able to do that the challenge will then be on the rivals to beat him. What we like about this dog is he’s gutsy, game, will run all day but has the chance of gear needed to sprint for the line. Feral Frankie is good enough to win this competition outright and the one thing that can be taken for granted is, if he runs as expected and books his place in the final, bookies will cut his outright price considerably.
