IT’S a massive night of racing at Albion Park this Thursday highlighted by five heats of the Group 1 Brisbane Cup (520m).

The meeting also features three heats of the Group 1 Queensland Cup (710m) for the stayers on what truly is a champagne night of greyhound racing.


Best Bets

RACE 1 Number 8 – ZIPPING NISEKO ($2.40)

Looks a race in two between Victorian Hank The Hustler and Zipping Niseko where I think the experience at the track will see the latter prevail. She’s had the four Albion Park starts now for two wins and I don’t mind her drawn in eight either where she can carve across at her own pace.

Seven starts from box eight for six wins and she ran a PB last week behind Maggie Moo Moo in the Superstayers.

Race 3 Number 3 – FIVE STAR ($2)

Up and coming star of the staying ranks. Looked completely strange to the track last week in the Superstayers but still broke 42 seconds at his first look at the track.

Will strip a whole lot better for that effort and looks the bet of the night for mine. Is a stayer going places and is well placed in this field.

Race 6 Number 2 – WYNBURN SHEEAN ($3.60)

Mouthwatering clash between Tiggerlong Tonk and Wynburn Sheean with the pair drawing alongside each other in one and two only adding to the intrigue.

Plenty to like about Wynburn Sheean’s two recent wins at the track and while he hasn’t completely rattled the clock expect there’s further improvement and at the better odds happy to go his way.

The fav is a mighty dog and will take a power of beating. Should be a fantastic spectacle.

Best Value

Race 5 Number 2 CRAZY COOL ($10)

Runs into Aston Fastnet and Shima Shine which is a daunting task but from the low draw she’s more than capable of figuring at double figure odds.

Recent runs have been a bit below her best but she’s a seven-time Albion Park winner that can run the hands off the clock on her night.

If the favourites find bother from their tricky draws she’s certainly in the mix.

Race 8 Number 6 KOORINGA LUCY ($6.50)

In outstanding form winning her past three in blinding times at Grafton, Albion Park and Casino.

Has the awkward draw to contend with but if she gets through the first corner in the first three look for her to finish strongly as her last section is her best section.

Represents good each-way value.
