We have plenty to get through on Saturday with an impressive greyhounds card boosting the sports schedule. This includes delights such as the Rugby World Cup, UK horse racing and Premier League football. Greyhound backers can have their say on all the day’s BAGs and BEGs meetings as well as the outright competition that continues on Saturday night. Here are our top November 2 Greyhounds betting tips and predictions.
A Closer Look
Star of the show, and by quite some distance, is the Ladbrokes Gold Collar. This will be shown live on Racing Post Greyhound TV as well as a number of live streaming channels offered by major bookmakers. Place your outright or heats bets at Ladbrokes, for example, and you can follow the racing live at no extra cost. Never again will you be left to check a results service to see how your dogs bets got on.
Bookmakers have priced up the Ladbrokes Gold Collar and it makes for interesting reading. The earlier you bet the better the price you’ll get as quotes will be cut following each heat. A packed field is headed by Leemount Venus who can be backed at 13/8 with the race sponsors. We can see where the traders are coming from with that call, but this will be a fiercely competitive tournament and we don’t see the value in backing the shortest price, especially at the current odds.
Plucky or Lucky?
We’d much prefer to take a punt on a plucky outsider who has a chance of upsetting the odds. The runner for us is Lenson John who can be backed at 14/1, best price at Bet365. We’ll take the benefit of the each-way places of 1/4 the odds a place 1-2-3.
