Wednesday the 12th of June’s greyhound racing betting tips come from Coventry with the main focus on their Tobertelly Queen Bitches Stakes competition where they offer three heats full of some quality bitches. We’ve managed to find bets in all three heats with the best of the those a cracking bet at 7/4 with William Hill in the opening heat.
The opening heat runs at 8:10pm and sees Russelena Barbie and Express Flame renew their rivalry from May the 26th when Barbie took an early lead before Flame got up right on the line to win by a short head.
However, this time, we see a reverse in fortunes with Russelena Barbie taking home the victory. Barbie will be allowed an easy lead once more with the opposition in traps one and two not offering much in the early pace department.
In the last meeting, Express Flame, who isn’t always the sharpest of starters, was allowed a clear run to pick off Barbie but Flame doesn’t always get that same clear run in every race and we think there is a chance she won’t get one this evening with the likes of Derby competitor Zoos Caprice challenging out wide.
Russelena Barbie will enjoy the freedom of a clear run and should build up enough of a lead to be able to make all and repel off the late challenges of the aforementioned Zoos Caprice and Express Flame. The 7/4 with William Hill should be taken as early as possible as other firms are already as short as 5/4.
In the second heat of the Tobertelly Queen Bitches Stakes at 8:58pm, we’ve chosen to take a chance on a bitch that we’ve sided with on a number of occasions before, and with mixed results, but on this occasion we think Geneva Emy is overpriced at 6/1 with Ladbrokes.
Traps 2, Starmount Swift, and 5, Fionntra Molly are disputing favouritism at the moment, with both sub-2/1 at present but we have reasons to oppose both at their current prices which leads us to siding with the selection.
Based on her trial last week, Starmount Swift might have a length or two on Geneva Emy but that trial was a guaranteed clear run and we believe that if Emy breaks well she can lead Swift up early.
Fionntra Molly scorched around in 29:17s on Sunday and obviously a repeat of that would be far too good in this company but a chance is taken that trap 6, Seathwaite Gilda, will take her running room in the early part of the race and allow Geneva Emy a clear lead to which she can hold on to.
Dixies Craft, in trap 1, is the short-priced favourite in the final heat at 9:48pm but we are opposing the favourite with the bitch in trap 2, Mandeville Ace, who is available to back at 5/1 with Ladbrokes.
Dixies Craft broke the track record around Coventry’s 450m track last month and her position as favourite is based on that performance but she hasn’t been as impressive since and we think that Mandeville Ace, who is capable of supreme early pace, can crack out and deny Craft a run early and then make all to win the heat.
