Wolf’s Group 1 Greyhound Guide – Thursday 24th May


Wolf’s Group 1 Greyhound Guide – Thursday 24th May

The Wolf has analysed the three Group 1 races from Sandown Park – The Sandown Cup, The Sapphire Crown and the Harrison Dawson. The Wolf is confident that there is plenty of value around these Group 1 races and he is keen to play accordingly!

Sapphire Crown Final
The Wolf is Confident this years Sapphire Crown will be a race in three with a leaning to Miss Splendamiro (4). This classy NSW bitch had excuses last start and with the extra week to settle in can show her true colours in the Final. She handles middle draws well and with some moderate beginners drawn to the inside she is a real chance of landing on the bunny early. Dyna Patty (3) will likely start favourite after a slick heat win in 29.34 seconds when she dictated from the front and does have a great record at this track and distance. Wynburn Cutie (1) has been hit and miss of late but has a ton of ability and was a great run last week, if she can get clear running turning for home she will be running home hard.

Harrison Dawson Final
The Wolf is confident Hecton Bale (6) can repeat his Australian Cup heroics when he won the Group 1 in dazzling style from a wide draw. With close to 400k in the bank he is the class dog and showed he is in great form last week when overcoming early trouble to score. Hasten Slowly (2) is a pacey type who is racing in career best form and if he finds the lead in to the first bend he will be very hard to run down. Not Available (3) has recaptured his best form at the right time and must be included after running the fastest heat time of 29.25 seconds last week. My Redeemer (1) will be favourite and is racing well but has done his best racing from wide draws and prefer others at the odds.

Sandown Cup Final
Rippin’ Sam (8)
 was beaten by 6 lengths last start by his full brother Tornado Tears (7) who will start favourite in the Final but The Wolf is confident that Sam can turn the tables here. Tornad0 Tears had a clear run up in front last start but may find it harder to cross from the seven in the Final and looks a risk at the short odds. Rippin’ Sam is a proven Group 1 winner who will get back early and be powering home when it matters most. Quick Jagger (3) appears well over the odds after winning his heat here last week in fine style. He is capable of finding the early lead here and with clear running can add some spice to exotics. Benali (1) is very reliable and must be respected from the good draw.
