THE group 1 spotlight shifts to Wentworth Park with four heats of the Paws Of Thunder slated for decision.

Two heats of the Group 2 Summer Chase will also be run and won for the stayers on a top card of racing.

We’ve plucked out a few at some value on the 10-race program so let’s get stuck in and see what we can find.

FIELDS & FORM WENTWORTH PARK SATURDAY NIGHT

RACE 4 – NUMBER 4 ZIPPING TRUVY

Ran a slashing second to Here’s Tears in the Group 3 Christmas Cheer and third in the Listed Newcastle Cup. Loves racing at Wentworth Park and only needs luck in transit through the first corner to get into the finish.

RACE 6 – NUMBER 1 RITZA COEN

Runs into an airborne Wow which is arguably the toughest test at present in greyhound racing. But with Wow drawn seven with some work to do early, expect Ritza Coen to get a charmed run off the red and capitalize on any trouble the favourite might run into.

RACE 7 – NUMBER 8 SIMON TOLD HELEN

I think $2.3 for the four-time group 1 winner is more than reasonable – especially from box eight which should enable him to sail to the front and put an early margin on his rivals. Put a red line through his Warragul Cup heat run – ready to strike here.


RACE 9 – NUMBER 1 PHANTOM CALL

Switches up to Sydney and makes his Wentworth Park debut for top kennel. Expect the change of scenery to do just the trick for this fella which began his career in Victoria in dynamic fashion. Box one in a quiet race ideal also. Even money is the best on offer which I think might be good shopping by race jump.

Best Value – Race 8 Number 2 WINLOCK ON TOP

Grand sprinter which wouldn’t know how to run a bad race. Scored impressively at WPK last weekend and looks to get a great run tonight from box two. $6 in betting which looks appealing with some question marks over the 520 metre merits of hot favourite Poppy Jack, a flying Bulli winner Tuesday.
