SOUTHLAND preview - Friday evening, January 8
Welcome to another Friday evening of entertaining and exciting greyhound racing at Southland as there are 18 races on tap on the evening card for your viewing and wagering pleasure. For the picks on Friday, MoneyMaker Mike has selected several greyhounds that appear to be solid candidates for turning in winning efforts. Best wishes to all of you for a very healthy and prosperous new year and hopefully we can get things off to good financial start early this year by putting some extra cash in our pockets. Good luck to all and thanks for reading.
Race 4 - 583 yards - Grade D - CBJ SEVENUP - 3 box - A big rush to the turn should have this young greyhound near the front and in position with his mid-track running style to challenge for the win. I will play the 3 with the 1/5/6/8.
Race 9 - 660 yards - Grade B - SUPERIOR CANARD - 2 box - Last time out, and first time on the distance course at Southland, he set the pace before fading down the stretch. I look for him to give a similar effort here but I do think he will hold on for a better finish here. I will play the 2 with the 3/7/8.
Race13- 583 yards - Grade AA - CHASMO'S DIESEL - 1 box - A super talented greyhound who has 25 top three finishes in 35 races and will likely add to that sterling record with a big run in this one. I will play the 1 with the 2/5/7.
Race18- 820 yards - Grade TAA - FLYING SCOOBYDOO - 8 box - Always a lot to like about this hard running and very consistent greyhound, he's posted well for his mid-track running style, has good early speed and his record of 33 top four finishes in 36 races which includes 12 wins and 12 second place efforts shows he's more then capable of a big race anytime he steps foot on the track. I will play the 8 with the 1/2/3/6.
