Racing writer, JUSTIN DEVINE, looks at tonight’s meetings and singles out his best greyhound racing tips for tonight’s Group 1 races at The Meadows. Good luck Punters!
The Meadows R5 – G1 Zoom Top 725m
I’m tipping an upset in the Zoom Top. HANK THE HUSTLER (3) has been racing well in recent times and will appreciate drawing close to the rail. He can find a good spot early before launching down the back. I’m on him at the good odds. MEPUNGA RUBY (2) jumped brilliantly to lead all the way in the Group 2 Summer Distance Plate last start and will be hard to catch if she finds the early lead. The pair can space their rivals.
The Meadows R6 – G1 Rookie Rebel 600m
JUNGLE DEUCE (1) is airborne at the moment with seven wins on the trot including two Group 1s in his last three runs. On his The Meadows 600m debut he only needs even luck in running to win well. JARICK BALE (3) has won his last two brilliantly and while he needs luck in his races he will be strong late. He is the knockout chance.
Tip: JUNGLE DEUCE @ $1.90
The Meadows R8 – G1 Temlee FFA 405m
ASTON RUPEE is a superstar chaser with a better than 50% winning strike rate who sizzled around Sandown Park last start to break 29 seconds. He can ping from box 4 to find the lead prior to the first turn and that should be the race. Much like his tennis-playing namesake ZIPPING KYGRIOS (5) has a ton of ability and is capable of winning IF he is “switched on”. Box 5 looks a concern but if he jumps with the favourite an upset is possible,
