The live greyhound racing action on RPGTV for Sunday the 14th of April comes from Coventry and BetPal have a number of free tips on the evening’s quality race card. Ladbrokes are best price about all three of our selections, and we’ve included two shorter priced favourites as well as a 10/1 outsider who we feel has a great chance.
The first race we have focused our attentions on gets under way at 7:45pm and looks to us as if it is likely to play out as a close battle between the two dogs at the head of the market: T3 Sidaz Dippy and T6 Hather Sherlock, who are both priced at 5/2 with Ladbrokes. The race takes place over Coventry’s 672m course with the two named dogs likely to run the race in notably different styles.
The selection, Sidaz Dippy, will break fast and lead from the front with Hather Sherlock starting slowly and finishing faster. Unfortunately for Sherlock we believe Dippy will have stretched out too much of a lead in the first three-quarters of the race for him to be clawed back. Dippy ran poorly last time out but a repeat of the 41:45s time from the 31st of March will see him cross the line first.
Ballymac Swift is another favourite we like at Coventry this evening and the 6/4 at Ladbrokes will be shorter come race time. The race, at 9:00pm, should see Swift’s early pace from trap 5 give him the early lead and he is strong enough to hold off the challenge from Mallogs Holly. The two dogs have already exchanged wins over Coventry’s 894m race this year but this race, over the shorter 859m, looks to suit Swift a little better.
BetPal’s final free greyhound racing tip for Coventry comes in the form of a 10/1 shot who looks to have been overlooked by Ladbrokes in the 8:30pm race. Millstreet Scar has spent 2013 running solely over Coventry’s 485m distance but tonight steps up in a 672m race where it is the sole wide seed, running from the 6 box.
A look at Scar’s sectionals for the 485m races suggests he might grab an early lead here and the distance won’t be an issue if the trainer has him right as he has some very nice 2012 form over Romford’s 575m and 750m. He could make the 10/1 price look foolish come the finishing line.
