SOUTHLAND Preview - Thursday, December 3
Welcome to another Thursday twilight card of entertaining and exciting greyhound racing at Southland as there are 18 races on tap for your viewing and wagering pleasure. As many of you know who follow MoneyMaker Mike's Southland previews, from time to time I like to go outside the box with picks and predictions and for a couple of programs this week I will monitor those greyhounds who are going for three straight wins. I did this a few months back and I was surprised to see that only a few were able to make it three wins in a row during that study. As always I will post the results of how these greyhounds did and see if we can come up with any trend when it comes to winning streaks. Good luck to all and thanks for reading.
Race 5 - 583 yards - Grade C - DKC BARNEYRUBBLE - 6 box - Here is a young greyhound with only six starts in his career but he does have 4 top four finishes including two wins. As you can tell by the lines in the program he encountered much trouble in his first four races but in the last two which were wins, this mid-track runner showed a good rush to the turn so I wouldn't count him out of this one. Competition gets harder as greyhounds rise in grade but he looks capable of being in the chase once again.
Race10- 583 yards - Grade A - MEGA ODDBALL - 7 box - He's going for 3 straight wins here and has been running strong lately with five top four finishes in his last six races. Grade A competition will make it tough for him to continue his winning streak but he's gone to the front in his last two wins right out of the box and with his rail running style will be looking to find some room to run on the inside.
Race15- 583 yards - Grade AA - BBB WHISKEYRUN - 8 box - He's running very good, trying to make it 3 in a row and 4 wins out of his last 5 races. He loves it wide so with his post position and his strong late closing move, I've got to think his chances are good here.
Race17- 660 yards - Grade AA - KEEPER POCKET - 4 box - He's a hard running greyhound who gives 110% each time out and with 25 top two finishes in 57 races should be considered a solid threat each and every time out on the track. An inside runner with enough speed out of the box to get the front, he's worth a play in this one.
