Daily Dogs – Saturday, April 6

each way
The Meadows: Race 3 (7:58pm AEDT)
No. 7 Blue Hazard

Blue Hazard will need some early luck from a wide box, but he has a class edge over his rivals tonight and with even luck, can return to winning form. The son of Blue Giant doesn’t win out of turn, but he’s continued to build towards something recently and ran a close-up second at his two most-recent appearances. The 600m tonight looks ideal again.

The Meadows: Race 5 (8:38pm AEDT)
No. 2 Foxzami Muzza

Foxzami Muzza has won his last four starts and will take a power of beating again the The Meadows tonight. The two-year-old just got there at this track and distance two back but responded with an utterly dominant performance under the same conditions to win by more than four lengths last week. He’s rock hard fit and this race is no harder.

best bet
The Meadows: Race 6 (8:58pm AEDT)
No. 5 Tao Tao

Two-year-old Tao Tao has reeled off some outstanding performances this time and looks tough to beat in the sixth at The Meadows tonight. The two-year-old recorded a smart win over 590m at Sandown Park two starts back before a completely luckless performance here at The Meadows last time out, which still delivered a 1.5-lengths fourth. With a better passage tonight, he looks the one to beat.

The Meadows: Race 8 (9:38pm AEDT)
No. 1 Theo's Thunder

Theo’s Thunder rarely turns in a bad performance and will be tough to catch from Box 1 tonight. The son of Dyna Double One notched a dominant win over this track and distance in Grade 5 company two starts back before returning a competitive effort to place third in a far tougher race. This looks a far-more suitable task and he’s primed for a return to winning form.

Neds Friday Night Lightning Preview & Tips – Week 4

It’s hard to believe that we’ve already reached the penultimate week of Neds Friday Night Lightning at Wentworth Park, but there’s still plenty of opportunities to get involved!

As always, all ten races will be contested over 280m at Wentworth Park on Friday and a range of grades will be represented.

Following three weeks of competition, Allan Ivers continues to lead the way and the Swan Bay-based trainer is set to be well represented again in Week 4.

each way
Race 1 - Neds Punters Toolbox Heat 1 (6:10pm AEDT)
No. 7 Dana Hammy

Dana Hammy returned a lacklustre performance last time out, but his form prior was excellent and he looks a genuine each-way chance of winning the first at Friday Night Lightning. The son of Swift Fancy recorded two impressive wins in succession last month before running second in a 440m race at Goulburn. He missed the jump at his most-recent appearance, but generally displays great box speed and if he steps on Friday, he’ll be tough to run down.

Neds Jump Off Heat 2 (6:27pm AEDT)
No. 1 Faith In Thee

Faith In Thee ran into early trouble at last week’s Friday Night Lightning, but she’ll relish jumping from Box 1 this time around and is good enough to return to winning form. The three-year-old daughter of Goodesy finished in the places at her three starts prior to last week’s luckless effort and she is rock-hard fit. She is one of the Allan Ivers contingent set to step out and is a live chance of continuing the trainer’s outstanding run of form at Friday Night Lightning.

best bet
Race 7 - Neds Friday Night Lightning Heat 2 (8:12pm AEDT)
No. 4 Friskey

Friskey has been absolutely airborne this time and will be hard to beat in the seventh on Friday. The three-year-old has won each of her three most-recent starts, highlighted by dominant wins in Weeks 2 and 3 of Friday Night Lightning. She’s got plenty of early speed so Box 4 shouldn’t be too much of an issue and while this does look to be her sternest task for a little while, she has the runs on the board.

Race 9 - Neds Price Boost Heat 6 (8:53pm AEDT)
No. 7 Danni Said No

Danni Said No was checked out of her last start here at Friday Night Lightning, but her form prior was excellent, and she strikes another very winnable one in Week 4. The two-year-old put together three-consecutive wins leading into her most-recent appearance, including a three-length triumph in Week 1 of Friday Night Lightning, and her form from wide boxes is generally good. She can cross the field and lead all the way.

Daily Dogs – Thursday, April 4

Sandown Park: Race 1 (7:07pm AEDT)
No. 4 Vivatar

Vivatar was a dominant winner two starts back and a repeat of that performance would also see him winning the first at Sandown Park tonight. The son of Barcia Bale has since stepped out in a tougher grade and received no luck in running, but he’s continuing to improve with racing and will appreciate a step back in class. If he steps well from the central box, he’s a live chance of leading all the way.

Back Up #1 Federal Impact

Federal Impact is first-up from a spell but is capable of a high-rating performance and looks the major danger. I’ll happily use my daily Back Up here.

Sandown Park: Race 2 (7:25pm AEDT)
No. 2 Dyna Unther

Dyna Untha is seeking a third-consecutive win at Sandown Park tonight and looks tough to beat again. The son of Barcia Bale has only made four appearances at the races since debuting last month but has more than stamped himself as a dog to follow and continues to improve with each effort. He recorded a nine-length win in his only other start from Box 2 and while this is a step up in class, he’s primed for another big run.

best bet
Sandown Park: Race 4 (8:07pm AEDT)
No. 4 Flynn

Flynn has been airborne this time and will take a power of beating in the fourth at Sandown Park tonight. A dominant winner of his first two starts back from a spell, the Kinloch Brae two-year-old stepped awkwardly at Ballarat two starts back but powered home for fourth, before returning to the winner’s stall at his most-recent effort.

Sandown Park: Race 10 (10:07pm AEDT)
No. 4 Red Rock

Red Rock is still learning his craft, but he is a star in the making and will be hard to beat in the tenth at Sandown Park tonight. A son of the legendary Fernando Bale, Red Rock recorded a five-length win over 515m at Angle Park two starts back before working home well to finish third under the same conditions last time out. With even luck from the central box, he’ll give them something to chase.

Daily Dogs – Wednesday, April 3

Bendigo: Race 5 (4:21pm AEDT)
No. 1 Agent Que

Agent Que has been in strong and consistent form this time and strikes a very winnable race at Bendigo this afternoon. The three-year-old son of Dyna Double One was an impressive winner at Ballarat four starts back and there was a lot to like about the way he finished off his two most-recent races, both in a tough grade. Box 1 is ideal and he’ll be hard to run down.

best bet
Bendigo: Race 6 (4:39pm AEDT)
No. 8 Impala

Impala will carry winning form into the sixth at Bendigo this afternoon and looks well placed to make it two in a row. The three-year-old has continued to improve with racing this time, but her last start effort for a dominant win at Warragul was among the best performances of her career and a repeat of that effort would see her winning again.

Ballarat: Race 4 (7:57pm AEDT)
No. 3 Luca's Entity

Luca’s Entity was an impressive last start winner and will be tough to beat in the fourth at Ballarat tonight. The two-year-old has only finished outside the placings once through nine career starts and his performance two weeks ago suggested that he has found his best form. The central draw is fine and he’ll take a power of beating.

each way
Ballarat: Race 9 (9:38pm AEDT)
No. 3 Khlo Money

Khlo Money faces a small step up in grade at Ballarat tonight, but she has been in excellent form this time and looks over the odds at her current price ($14 at publish). The daughter of Barcia Bale overcame a slow start to finish third over 515m at Sandown on March 21st before flying home to win at this track and distance last week, from box 3, despite being unwanted in the market.

Daily Dogs – Tuesday, April 2

Gosford: Race 3 (7:38pm AEDT)
No. 8 Zipping Oaks

Zipping Oaks hit the line well to finish third in a race tougher than this one at The Gardens on Saturday and can make a return to the winner’s stall tonight. The daughter of Turanza Bale finished off well over 400m to run a close second at The Gardens three starts back, before mustering arguably the best performance of her career to record a six-length win at Richmond two back. She’s rock-hard fit and her form from wide boxes is excellent.

each way
Gosford: Race 4 (7:58pm AEDT)
No. 1 Unsociables

Unsociables appeared to find the 400m just a little too long last time out and she will appreciate drop in distance tonight. The two-year-old has been a strong and reasonably consistent performer this time and was a dominant at The Gardens a couple of weeks ago. Box 1 looks ideal and she is over the odds at her current quote.

Gosford: Race 8 (9:18pm AEDT)
No. 2 Jye Nismo

Jye Nismo has been in excellent form this time and strikes another very winnable race at Gosford tonight. The son of Keybow was an impressive winner three starts back before finishing on the winner’s heels at his two most-recent appearances, but in tougher company than he is faced with tonight. He can make all of his own luck from an inside box and looks ready to win.

Daily Dogs – Monday, April 1

Albion Park: Race 3 (8pm AEDT)
No. 3 Twice The Size

Twice The Size has recorded two wins from his three career starts so far and will be tough to beat in the third at Albion Park tonight. The son of Glen Gallon strolled in to score two in succession at Capalaba in February before a tough run at Ipswich last time out. He’ll only improve into this race and with even luck, will be tough to hold out.

Albion Park: Race 4 (8:20pm AEDT)
No. 5 Key Factor

Key Factor has been racing well this time and strikes a very winnable one at Albion Park tonight. The two-year-old he been up and racing for a long time, but finished off well to placed third at this track and distance two back before producing another slick run under the same conditions for second most-recently. This race is no harder and he gets the chance to go one better.

best bet
Albion Park: Race 5 (8:40pm AEDT)
No. 8 Stevick

Stevick has been airborne recently and looks well placed to record a third-consecutive win at Albion Park tonight. The one-year-old daughter of My Bro Fabio is still learning her craft, bur she’s posted three wins and two minors from only seven starts so far and continues to improve. She saluted for us last week and I am confident that she can again.

Albion Park: Race 9 (9:59pm AEDT)
No. 2 Farmor On Fire

Farmor On Fire will carry winning form into the ninth at Albion Park tonight and looks tough to beat again. The two-year-old hasn’t finished outside of the places at his four most-recent starts, but his most-recent performance and win was utterly dominant and the best of his career to date, and a repeat of that effort would see him taking this out as well.

Daily Dogs – Sunday, March 31

Albion Park Race 3 (6:52PM AEDT)
#4 RUSTY UTE

Rusty Ute won his first two starts including a blistering 19.09 at this track and distance before being well beaten last start from box seven. He has shown god early gate speed and I think he’ll appreciate being closer to the middle/fence than he was last time out.

Albion Park Race 4 (7:14PM AEDT)
#5 DEE WASHINGTON

Despite ordinary results in his past two races, Dee Washington can run a fast time over the short course at Albion Park. He beat Mamma’s Boy by almost four lengths in early March and he actually has the second fastest time over this distance of any other dog in the race.

best bet
Albion Park Race 6 (7:54PM AEDT)
#2 YOU GO THERE

You Go There has now recorded two wins from his three race starts at this track and distance. He has drawn closer to the rail today and should again prove too good for his rivals.

Albio Park Race 8 (8:39PM AEDT)
LADY OLIVIA

Lady Olivia has run behind Heat Up at her last two races however she will appreciate finally being drawn inside her main rival tonight. She consistently runs fast times over this distance and she will go close.

Daily Dogs – Saturday, March 30

Wentworth Park: Race 1 (7:29pm AEDT)
No. 3 Cosmic Blend

Cosmic Blend is on a back up of one a few days, but her performance to win at Goulburn was outstanding and a repeat of that effort would see her tough to beat again. The daughter of Cosmic Rumble has been a strong and consistent performer throughout her entire racing career so far and has recorded several dominant wins recently. As long as she steps well from the central box, she’ll take plenty of catching.

Wentworth Park: Race 3 (8:08pm AEDT)
No. 7 Nangar Diva

Nangar Diva strikes an open race at Wentworth Park tonight, but she’s absolutely flying and is good enough to win. The daughter of Fabregas has saluted at four of her five most-recent appearances; running second on the only other occasion. Her form from wide boxes is outstanding, particularly recently and she represents good value at her current price ($5 at publish).

each way
Wentworth Park: Race 6 (9:13pm AEDT)
No. 1 Cawbourne Madox

Cawbourne Madox has returned several pleasing efforts this time and looks a live chance at odds in the sixth at Wentworth Park tonight ($17 at publish). The two-year-old stuck on well to record an impressive win at this track and distance two starts back, before finishing third in a tough race last time out. Box 1 is ideal and with even luck, he can fight out the finish again.

Wentworth Park: Race 8 (9:57pm AEDT)
No. 4 Dual Keroma

Dual Keroma is another last-start winner and can make it two in a row tonight. Trainer Susan Pitstock has spaced the three-year-old’s runs since the start of the year and he’s repaid the decision with several outstanding performances and results. His win at this track and distance was utterly bullish and if he can repeat that effort tonight, he’ll be winning again.

Neds Friday Night Lightning Preview & Tips – Week 3

We’ve reached the halfway point of Neds Friday Night Lightning and the action kicks up another gear at Wentworth Park for Week 3!

As always, all ten races in Week 3 of Friday Night Lightning will be contested over the sprint trip of 280m, but a variety of grades will be represented. Allan Ivers continues to top the leader board and the Swan Bay-based trainer has plenty of live chances in the mix again this week.

If you can, make your way down to Wentworth Park for the most exciting and unique night of racing anywhere in the country on Friday and be sure to check out our best bets for Week 3 below!

each way
Race 1 - Neds Punters Toolbox Stakes (6:02pm AEDT)
No. 1 Kingsbrae Boy

Kingsbrae Boy has been a strong and consistent performer this time and looks a nice each-way shot in the first at Friday Night Lightning. The two-year-old son of Don’t Knocka Him recorded consecutive wins at Dubbo and Gunnedah earlier this month and his two most-recent efforts to finish in the places at a tougher grade have been full of merit. He’s got plenty of box speed and can go straight to the lead tonight from an inside draw.

Race 3 - Neds Fluc Up Masters Stakes (6:49pm AEDT)
No. 1 Back Water Hatty

Back Water Hatty claimed an outstanding win here last week and she’s drawn to repeat that effort and result again this week. The daughter of Cosmic Rumble has continued to improve with racing this time, but her third-up effort most recently suggested that she’s find peak form. She’s Single looms as a threat but faces a tougher task from the central box and I’m happy to take her on. This does look like a great opportunity to utilise a Back Up.

Race 5 - Neds Back Up Stakes (7:28pm AEDT)
No. 2 Chatta Poochie

Chatta Poochie flew the boxes last week and ran a credible third in a classy race, and he’s offered an even better opportunity from an inside draw on Friday. The two-year-old has only turned in one lacklustre effort in his six most-recent starts and is rock-hard fit for his run on Friday night. As long as his pings the boxes again, he’ll make all of his own luck on the speed and will be tough to run down over the 280m.

best bet
Race 9 - Neds Daily Tips Stakes (8:48pm AEDT)
No. 2 Classy Dream

Classy Dream hasn’t been seen at the races since New Year’s Day and she has only made one competitive appearance, but she was utterly dominant on that occasion and a repeat of the effort would see her winning the Neds Daily Tips Stakes. The daughter of Mogambo went forward at Gosford and never appeared in doubt; extending late to win by five lengths and she can emulate that run from Box 2 on Friday night.

Daily Dogs – Thursday, March 28

Sandown Park: Race 1 (7:07pm AEDT)
No. 6 Say Hi

Say Hi will enjoy a step back in class into the first at Sandown Park tonight and looks tough to beat. The son of High Earner put together two impressive performances and win in January and is far better than his two most-recent (both luckless) results suggest. He’ll need to step well from Box 6, but he is more than up to winning at this class.

Sandown Park: Race 3 (7:43pm AEDT)
No. 8 Lochinvar Deus

Lochinvar Deus has been a strong and consistent performer this time and looks over the odds to salute in the third at Sandown Park tonight. The two-year-old son of Magic Sprite has recorded a career total of nine wins and sixteen minors through forty-three competitive appearances and worked home well to finish third at this track and distance after running into early interference last time. He has recorded the fastest time of any dog in the field under the conditions.

Back Up #7 Priority Pass

Last start winner Priority Pass has already received some interest and looms as the major danger. I’ll be using a Back Up.

best bet
Sandown Park: Race 4 (8:07pm AEDT)
No. 6 Lektra Spring

Lektra Spring had no luck in running last week, but she looks a serious greyhound and can return to winning form in the fourth at Sandown Park tonight. The daughter of Spring Gun flew home to finish a close-up second on debut last month before stringing together three dominant wins, all over 525m at The Meadows leading into her most-recent appearance. She’ll ping the boxes tonight and is every chance of leading the whole way.
