Bunny's Best - Tips for Albion Park

Super Night has arrived at Albion Park featuring the $375,000 Group One Brisbane Cup along with a host of other feature races on a bumper card.

Queensland greyhounds’ number one race caller and in form tipster John Brasch has cast his eye over a huge night of racing and thinks he has found a few winners for the punters.

Race 1

TAB Lighting Final 331 Metres

Top Pick – Cosmo Bill – Cynthia Elson – 3

“Cosmo Bill is an old marvel, the rising five-year-old lines up for start one hundred and fifty tonight, was the fastest heat winner on Monday night and if he jumps similarly is the one to beat.”

“Has made a multitude of short course feature finals over the journey and looks well placed.

Others to Watch

2nd - Farmor Fear This – Steven Scott – 8

3rd - Kingsbrae Raylen – Jacob Northfield – 7

4th - Data Base – Reg Hazelgrove – 6


Race 2

Sky Racing Thunder Final 395 Metres

Top Pick – Farmor on Fire – Steven Scott – 1

“Boxed ideally off the inside, has won two from three out of box one in his career.”

“Has the quickest time over the distance of all eight finalists 22.41, his early pace is likely to see him lead and win.”

Others to watch

2nd – Sly Gambler – Patrick Lavis – 8

3rd – Nan’s Magic – Cynthia Elson – 2

4th – Zenyatta Miss – Darryl Mcgrath – 4


Race 4

TAB Novice Final 520 Metres

Top Pick – Certification – Greg Stella – 3

“Dave Brett Memorial winner from a similar draw, looks to have a bit of class and race experience on these.”

“Coming off an impressive 30.13 victory should see him too good in this grade with early and sustained speed.”

Others to watch

2nd – No Easy Beat – Rusty Dillon – 5

3rd – Stinger Noir – Selena Zammit – 2

4th – Jimary Turbo – Andrew Monaghan – 4


Race 5

Garrard’s Challenge 600 Metres

Top Pick – Infrared Star – Joanne Price – 1

“Has been racing in far stronger company over the 710 journey.”

“Steps up to the 600 where he is ideally suited and gets box one giving him a good chance to lead and have the strength to win.”

“One of my best bets of the night.

Others to watch

2nd – Amber Marie – John Reimer – 5

3rd – Dynamite Lucy – Ray Burman – 7

4th – Miss Gingin – Tom Tzouvelis – 8


Race 6

Brisbane Greyhound Racing Club Chairman’s Cup 710 Metres

Top Pick – Bago Bluff – Darren Russell – 7

“Checked out of the Superstayers last week, wasn’t able to recover against a Group One field, but has a much easier assignment tonight.”

“Has proven in recent runs the staying trip is where he wants to be, likes to roll forward and if he can lead will take a lot of getting past.”

Others to watch

2nd – Stevick – Steven Scott – 1

3rd – Infrared Lad – Joanne Price – 2

4th – Flyaway Barb – Craig Cassidy – 3


Race 7

Garrard’s Sprint 520 Metres

Top Picks

Dam Slippery – Brett Hazelgrove – 6

Fabwik – Steve White – 1

“Tempted to put Dam Slippery on top after her brave run last week, but hasn’t jumped from out wide for a few starts and Fabwik is the clear danger.”

“Fabwik got out of the middle boxes well last week and from the one should get every chance to find the fence first and be hard to run down.”

Others to watch

3rd – Regal Recall – Tony Brett – 7

4th – Brandi Alexander – Tom Tzouvelis – 2


Race 8

Sky Racing Group One Brisbane Cup Final 520 Metres

Top Pick – Dyna Patty – Andrea Dailly – 4

“Zipping Bailey is normally a slow beginner inside her and Mystic Riot stays straight outside her, if she begins like she did last week will be prominent in the run and is very strong late.”

“Both trainer and greyhound know how to win these races, multiple Group One winners and big chance to do it again.”

Others to watch

2nd – Black Opium – Tony Brett – 8

3rd – Zipping Bailey – Jason Mackay – 3

4th – Sennachie – Steve White - 2
