Border Park's Christmas meet

GREYHOUNDS: With more than 100 nominations received, this afternoon’s action at Border Park promises to be something special.

And remember, with today’s meet being the last before Christmas, the club has opened the track to the public for free.

A 10-race program is set down and the club wishes to thank all who nominated, but apologies for a lack of nominations in the 652m event which we hoped to have.

But we do have three terrific heats of a fifth grade, two hot heats of a Maiden, a top Novice final and a great Best 8, but now to find some winners.

In race one I will go with Sudoku Lady – and hope it likes the track as much as it’s brother – over Karinya Ebony and Rhythm and Grace, while in race two I will take Chief Ringo over Lindee and Elusive Spice, and race three Quick Answer for Stephen Keep over Armidello and Noculate.

In the next couple I can’t look past trainer Keith Boan’s runners.

I like Super Surfer in the fourth ahead of Dufus Bob and Pure Thing, and Sunset Jazz ahead of Twin Fin and Suzy Teys in the fifth, but watch out if Woodmans gets a reason-able start.

Race six is the Best 8 and I like Cloud Dancer over Teddy to Go; watch both Uncle Ernietta and Diamond Series flying home.

In the seventh I’m going for Giggling Marlin over Wok Hudson and Surfer Richie, while in the eighth, and this one is hard, I will go with the times and take Ivory Spy to win ahead of Tricky Uno and Kay Cee Jet.

I think Scarlet Bay will come home first in race nine over Skeg and Steal De Bullion, and in the lucky last I think it will be Final Drive for the dart over Sacrifice andBerella Cruze.

Full on-course and interstate betting facilities are available in the club’s undercover auditorium.

The first local race will jump at 1.45pm (DST) and gates open at 11.00am (DST).
