The highlight of Hove’s 5th of September card is the final of the Brighton Belle, which we have previewed here, but there are a number of other highly competitive open races on the card. The highlight of those would seem to be 9:06pm race where we are taking on the favourite with a 9/4 chance with Coral as the best of our free greyhound racing betting tips.
Last week we backed Jaytee Lightning over the same course and distance but after a good start he was picked up off the last bend by the strong Dinner Hunter, although he still recorded a reasonable time.
Even a look at Jaytee Lightning’s winning performances around Hove show that he is susceptible to a late charge by the stronger greyhounds and I believe that Islas Scolari could prove to be a thorn in Jaytee’s side this evening in the 9:06pm race. Another negative for Jaytee Lightning could be the trap one draw with the twice he has ran from there at Hove resulting in his slowest sectionals.
Islas Scolari does his best work late in races and has some great form over Hove’s 515m distance with a 29:68s winning performance over Airlie Impact in May really standing out and he is looking like he is coming back into good form and fitness with a good trial at Romford followed by an superbly fast 475m Hove trial.
Islas Scolari should be backed at the 9/4 on offer with Coral.
Also on the Hove card, Droopys Harris looks a good bet in the 10:11pm race where she has the draw and form to overcome the favourite, Guinness Spark.
Guinness Spark has had a couple of poorer runs at Sheffield recently and can’t justify being 5/4 when Droopys Harris defeated him when the two raced over the same trip and from the same draw on the 15th of August.
Droopys Harris is available to back at a stand out price of 11/4 with Coral.
