Sandown Park: Race 1 (7:04pm AEDT)
No. 1 Fleck

Fleck mustered an enormous performance to run on for second here at Sandown Park last week and can go one better in the first tonight. The daughter of Dyna Double One recorded a dominant win at Cranbourne three back, in what was interestingly also the last time that she left from the rails draw. She can go straight to the lead and will be hard to beat.

Sandown Park: Race 2 (7:25pm AEDT)
No. 6 Malayah Bale

Malayah Bale has only had two career starts, but she is clearly a greyhound of ability and she can record another win at Sandown Park tonight. So far she has been kept to races at Ballarat, but immediately stamped herself as one to watch when an easy winner on debut, before finishing second at her only other start. She has plenty of upside and will take beating.

best bet
Sandown Park: Race 6 (8:46pm AEDT)
No. 8 Aston Cade

This is a big drop in class for Aston Cade and he will be extremely difficult to beat, particularly after drawing the outside box. A two-year-old son of the legendary Fernando Bale, Aston Cade has been a strong and consistent performer this time and won four of his last seven starts, placing on two other occasions. He finished sixth at this track and distance last week, but it was in the Group 1 Australian Cup Final and this looks a far more appropriate task for him.

Sandown Park: Race 10 (10:14pm AEDT)
No. 3 Bobby The Brute

Bobby The Brute will take winning form into the tenth at Sandown Park and looks up to making it two in a row. The son of Kc And All was simply far too good for his rivals at this track and trip last week and as long as he steps well from the potentially awkward box, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

Daily Dogs – Wednesday, March 4

Wentworth Park: Race 5 (8:26pm AEDT)
No. 1 Benkennie Chic

Benkennie Chic has returned some excellent efforts and results recently and will be hard to beat in the fifth at Wentworth Park tonight. The daughter of My Bro Fabio was a dominant winner from this draw at Nowra three back and has since finished fourth in a couple of tougher races. She’s rock-hard fit and will take beating.

best bet
Wentworth Park: Race 6 (8:45pm AEDT)
No. 5 Zipping Veyron

Zipping Veyron’s recent form has been nothing short of outstanding and she is the one to beat in the sixth at Wentworth Park tonight. The daughter of Black Magic Opal has won seven of her last eight starts including five in succession leading into this contest. She is an above-average athlete and is my best bet of the night.

Wentworth Park: Race 7 (9:05pm AEDT)
No. 5 Zipping Miranda

Zipping Miranda rarely runs a bad race and she’ll have conditions to suit at Wentworth Park tonight. She recorded consecutive wins here three and four starts back and has filled the minors at her two subsequent appearances, and she’ll have the luxury of an empty box on her outside for this contest. With even luck, I can’t find a reason why she won’t be in the finish again.

Wentworth Park: Race 9 (9:45pm AEDT)
No. 1 Natty's Gone

Natty’s Gone is seeking a hat-trick of wins when she steps out in the ninth at Wentworth Park tonight and she will take plenty of beating after drawing the rails. The two-year-old daughter of Dyna Double One has clearly found top gear and her superior box speed should allow her to go straight to the lead. She’ll be hard to catch.

Daily Dogs – Tuesday, March 3

Gosford: Race 4 (7:57pm AEDT)
No. 7 Merlin's Missile

Merlin’s Missile has only made three appearances at the races so far, but he looks a dog of good ability and can record another win at Gosford tonight. The son of My Bro Fabio mustered an eye-catching turn of foot to easily win over 431m two starts back and can be forgiven for his last run, given he was checked out of the contest almost immediately.

Gosford: Race 5 (8:20pm AEDT)
No. 8 Bowls And Holes

Bowls And Holes is a model of consistency and if she crosses the field from out wide tonight, will take plenty of beating. The daughter of Don’t Knocka Him has missed a place only twice in her last eight appearances and returned a particularly strong effort to easily win a tougher race at Richmond two back. A repeat of that would find her extremely hard to beat again.

best bet
Gosford: Race 6 (8:39pm AEDT)
No. 4 Straight Shift

Straight Shift has enjoyed a meteoric rise to prominence and looks well placed to record another win at Gosford tonight. The son of Fernando Bale has recorded four wins and a close-up second from only five career starts so far and is only improving with each effort. He’ll need luck from the central draw but remains my best bet of the night.  

Gosford: Race 8 (9:22pm AEDT)
No. 5 Sticky Wicket

Sticky Wicket is another impressive last-start winner stepping out at Gosford tonight and I can’t find a reason why she can’t make it two in a row. The daughter of My Bro Fabio has won three of her last five starts and flew home from out wise to record a lovely win at The Gardens on Saturday. She’s primed for another big performance.

Daily Dogs – Monday, March 2

Angle Park: Race 5 (7:57pm AEDT)
No. 8 Cawbourne Cross

Cawbourne Cross has been a strong and consistent performer this time and strikes another very winnable race at Angle Park tonight. The daughter of Swift Fancy has missed a place only once in her last eight competitive appearances; recording consecutive wins two and three starts back before filling the minors in a tougher race last time out. She’s rock-hard fit and will take beating again.

Angle Park: Race 7 (8:43pm AEDT)
No. 2 Tandiki

Tandiki will take winning form into the seventh at Angle Park tonight and looks up to making it two in a row. The daughter of Peter Rocket is another greyhound that simply doesn’t know how to run a bad race, but her last-start effort to win over 512m in slick time was particularly eye-catching, and a repeat would see her too good again.

each way
Angle Park: Race 8 (9:05pm AEDT)
No. 8 Rouge

This looks like being one of the more open races at Angle Park tonight and a dog like Rouge has live claims of winning, at a price ($6.50 at publish). The son of Fabregas was blocked for a run here two back but finished off well for fourth, before returning to winning form last time out. He should be able to keep away from early traffic from out wide and he can fight out the finish again.

Angle Park: Race 12 (10:29pm AEDT)
No. 1 Night Glow

Night Glow has drawn a peach in Box 1 tonight and several early scratchings have probably made this her race to lose. The daughter of Barcia Bale recorded consecutive wins two and three starts back before a fair effort, albeit luckless here last time out. She can go straight to the lead in this contest and will give them something to chase.

Daily Dogs – Sunday, March 1

Albion Park: Race 3 (7:08pm AEDT)
No. 8 Imelda

Imelda has been a model of consistency since debuting and is primed to win the third at Albion Park tonight. The daughter of Barcia Bale hasn’t missed a place in four career starts, winning here two back before finishing a close second in a tougher race last time. She only needs to continue on the same path to be in the finish again.

Albion Park: Race 5 (7:47pm AEDT)
No. 7 Cosmo Bill

Cosmo Bill is seeking a hat-trick of wins when he steps out in the fifth at Albion Park tonight. The son of Cosmic Chief’s excellent form extends past his last two starts, and he has in fact won four of his last eight, but his performance over 331m here last week was particularly slick and suggested that he has found peak condition.

Albion Park: Race 7 (8:29pm AEDT)
No. 2 Logo

Logo has returned several pleasing efforts recently and strikes a very winnable race at Albion Park tonight. The daughter of Thirty Talks has won two of his last four starts and was last see filly the minors from out wide here at Albion Park. A return to an inside box could prove all the difference in a return to winning form tonight.

each way
Albion Park: Race 8 (8:48pm AEDT)
No. 2 Molly Madness

Molly Madness will have the benefit of an empty box on her outside at Albion Park tonight and looks a touch of overs to win at a double-figure price. The daughter of Barcia Bale flew home to win, albeit in an easier race at Lismore two back before another fair but luckless run at Ipswich last time out. She looks up to something of this quality.

Daily Dogs – Saturday, February 29

The Meadows: Race 7 (8:35pm AEDT)
No. 8 Often Imitated

Often Imitated is an above-average athlete and is primed to win the Middle Distance Cup tonight. The three-year-old daughter of Kc And All has returned some typically outstanding performances recently and won the Group 2 Cranbourne Cup three back, before filling the minors in Group 1 company here two back. She is rock-hard fit and if she crosses the field, she’ll take a power of beating.

The Meadows: Race 8 (9:10pm AEDT)
No. 7 Just Terms

Just Terms could hardly have been more impressive of late and she looks the one to beat in the Fanta Bale Super Stayers Final. The daughter of Barcia Bale simply doesn’t know how to run a bad race and mustered an electric turn of foot to win the Group 1 Zoom Top at this track and distance two back. She needs only even luck from the central box to be in the finish again.

The Meadows: Race 9 (9:50pm AEDT)
No. 3 Hard Style Rico

Hard Style Rico will take winning form into the Australian Cup Final and I think he’s the one to beat again. The son of Bella Infrared is one of the country’s best chasers and was rewarded for some excellent form with a dominant win here last week. He can go straight to the lead tonight and will give them something to chase.

each way
The Meadows: Race 10 (10:15pm AEDT)
No. 2 Iago Bale

Iago Bale is another runner that can take advantage of an inside draw at The Meadows tonight. The son of Fernando Bale flew home to record a lovely win from a central draw here two back before another fair, albeit luckless effort last week. He can take up the running from Box 2 and is at peak fitness for this contest.

Daily Dogs – Friday, February 28

Healesville: Race 5 (12:45pm AEDT)
No. 2 Rio Hustler

Rio Hustler relishes racing down the Healesville straight and he strikes a very winnable race this afternoon. The son of Fernando Bale has been a consistent performer without setting the racing world on fire and has placed in five of his last six here. He can stay away from early trouble from the inside draw and with even luck, will be hard to beat.

Healesville: Race 6 (1:02pm AEDT)
No. 1 Red Potion

It is fair to say that Red Potion has been extremely luckless at his last three starts, but he has drawn the rails at Healesville today and will take plenty of beating. The son of Kitty Lad has returned some terrific performances and results here at Healesville this campaign and mustered an electric turn of foot to record an impressive win here late last month. He’s rock-hard fit and this looks a lovely race for him.

Healesville: Race 10 (2:14pm AEDT)
No. 7 Qatar Girl

Qatar Girl was luckless, but also clearly needed the run when first-up from a spell here last week and I think she’ll be extremely difficult to beat with the benefit of that today. The daughter of Spring Gun was a strong and consistent performer last time in and smoked the clock at this track and distance most notably in December. She has form from everywhere across the boxes and she’s primed to win.

The Gardens: Race 8 (6:19pm AEDT)
No. 2 Come On George

Come On George is seeking a hat-trick of wins when he steps out in the eighth at The Gardens this evening. The son of Spring Gun doesn’t know how to run a bad race, but his last two efforts have been particularly slick and I cannot find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

Daily Dogs – Thursday, February 27

Sandown Park: Race 5 (8:25pm AEDT)
No. 3 Sudden Force

Sudden Force has returned several pleasing efforts recently and looks a live chance of winning the fifth at Sandown Park tonight, at a lovely price ($8 at publish). The son of Lightning Frank hasn’t won since December, but also has hasn’t looked out of place in some tougher races and enters this off a luckless run from out wide at this track and distance. He’s rock-hard fit and his good early pace could prove the difference in this contest.

Sandown Park: Race 6 (8:46pm AEDT)
No. 2 Jim Zarr Dashian

Jim Zarr Dashian looks a star in the making and strikes a very winnable race at Sandown Park tonight. The son of Kinloch Brae recorded consecutive wins at this track and distance three and four starts back and has since placed in two subsequent appearances, both at a tougher grade. He boasts good box speed and will be hard to run down.

Sandown Park: Race 8 (9:28pm AEDT)
No. 1 Terren's Close

Terren’s Close relishes racing at Sandown Park and will be hard to beat in the eighth tonight after drawing Box 1. The son of Unlawful Entry has won three of his last five races, including one in particularly slick time over 520m at Sale, and he is another dog that was completely undone by poor luck at his most recent appearance. He can go straight to the lead and will give them something to chase.

best bet
Sandown Park: Race 11 (10:29pm AEDT)
No. 3 Playlist

Playlist will take winning form into the eleventh at Sandown Park tonight and looks up to making it two in a row. The son of Aussie Infrared has won three of his last five starts, filling the minors on another occasion and was a dominant winner the last time that he left from box 3. With even luck, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.

Daily Dogs – Wednesday, February 26

Wentworth Park: Race 2 (7:27pm AEDT)
No. 8 Laurie's Flyer

Laurie’s Flyer has been airborne of late and looks tough to beat in the second at Wentworth Park tonight. The son of Fernando Bale has won five races in succession leading into this, four in particularly slick time and importantly, he relishes jumping from out wide. With even luck, there’s no reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

Wentworth Park: Race 3 (7:47pm AEDT)
No. 1 Kwong Magic

Kwong Magic will take winning form into the third at Wentworth Park today and looks well placed to make it two in a row. The daughter of El Grand Senor is another runner that has found top gear recently, winning five of his last six races. He can go straight to the lead from Box 1 and dictate terms for his rivals.

best bet
Wentworth Park: Race 6 (8:47pm AEDT)
No. 2 Zipping Veyron

Zipping Veyron’s recent form could hardly have been more impressive, and this looks another terrific opportunity for her to win. The daughter of Black Magic Opal has won seven of her last eight races, including a Group 1 race here late last month and a repeat of any would see her winning. She is my best of the night.

Wentworth Park: Race 7 (9:08pm AEDT)
No. 8 Sketchy Butler

Sketchy Butler will need some early luck from out wide, but he too boasts excellent form recently and is up to winning. The son of Banjo Boy took a few starts to find top hear but has won three of his last four starts including two in succession leading into this.

Daily Dogs – Tuesday, February 25

Gosford: Race 4 (7:58pm AEDT)
No. 8 Fair Dinkum

Fair Dinkum will take winning form into the fourth at Gosford tonight and looks well placed to record another win. The son of Fernando Bale rarely runs a bad race and hasn’t missed a place at his last six starts, but his most recent effort to salute at The Gardens suggested that he has found peak condition. He relishes jumping from an outside box and will take beating.

Gosford: Race 5 (8:18pm AEDT)
No. 5 Just A Diva

Just A Diva boasts terrific box speed and I think that will prove the difference in the fifth at Gosford tonight. The daughter of Unlawful Entry did return a rare lacklustre effort last time out, but her form prior was excellent and included a dominant win in slick time at Richmond. A repeat of that effort would see her back into the winner’s stall tonight.

Gosford: Race 7 (8:58pm AEDT)
No. 2 Towering Dawn

Towering Dawn also failed to fire at Richmond last week, but she returned several pleasing efforts prior to that and looks up to winning the seventh at Gosford tonight. The daughter of Jagger Swagger recorded a lovely win over 350m at Goulburn three back, albeit in weaker company, and ran second by a nose two starts back. She’s rock-hard fit and up to something of this quality.

best bet
Gosford: Race 9 (9:38pm AEDT)
No. 4 Lil Storm

Lil Storm has found top gear and is primed to record another win at Gosford tonight. The daughter of Fernando Bale has recorded three wins from only five career starts to date, including two in succession leading into this contest. She’ll have the benefit of an empty box on her outside for this contest and is my best bet of the night.
