Greyhound Betting Preview: Five Card Draw an ace bet at 100/30

Tonight’s live greyhound action on Racing Post Greyhound TV (Sky 212) comes from Crayford and Newcastle and there are three dogs which look decent value form a punting perspective.

In the 8.02 at Crayford, Trap 6 Five Card Draw looks overpriced at 100/30 with bet365.

The son of Ace High Rumble a 34.06 to his name over the trip in a three dog trial back in June where he produced a lightning 12.97 sectional.

Since then he hasn’t had much luck in a couple of S1s at the track when encountering trouble in-running, but if he can cut loose at the start and clear a steer course then he looks sure to take the beating.

In the 8.34, Trap 2 Precious Lucy looks a worthy favourite and is strongly fancied at 13/8 with Stan James to complete the hat-trick.

The bitch is running out of her skin at present and overcame trouble in running last time out when landing an Open at the track by 1 1/4 lengths from Burgess Lad.

Her splits to the first bend suggest there is every chance she could lead up the inside dogs and bag the rails at the first bend, and given her staying powers she is unlikley to be pegged back if doing so.

Having said that she has shown that she does nto have to lead to win, and providing she tunrs handy I find it extremely hard to see anything beating her.

Over at Newcastle, the standout bet on the card looks to be Trap 6 Bandicoot Gabby at 9/4 with Hills in the finale at 10.35.

The bitch has been mixing it at Open level in her last two starts, and ran a cracker in the lastest of those when runner-up to Patterdale Jazz where she clocked 28.69.

That is faster than anything her opponents have achieved, and she also has quick sectionals from the boxes which should enable her to lead at the first.

If all does go according to plan then daughter of Droopys Scolari is going to be tough to catch now dropped in class into A1 company, and to me the 9/4 on offer looks too big.
