Welcome to another Wednesday twilight card of exciting greyhound racing at Southland as there are 18 entertaining races on tap for our viewing and wagering pleasure. MoneyMaker Mike's picks for this card will be greyhounds that finished in last place last time out but have a decent chance of coming right back with a really big effort while returning a nice profit to you. Greyhounds that are coming off last place finishes are often overlooked when handicapping a race so there will be times when you can really get nice odds on some of them. Good luck to everyone and thanks for reading.

Race 1 - 583 yards - Grade A - OSHKOSH KODIAK - 6 box - Despite an 8th place finish last time out, there is still plenty of positives for this greyhound to come blazing back with a strong effort. He is dropping in class having run in Grade AA the past month and does show a win in that class on the program. A rail runner who has decent early speed and a nice rush to the turn and does have 26 top four finishes in 37 races. He's worth a shot here for sure.

Race 5 - 583 yards - Grade M - FLY M MIMOSA - 8 box - She was bumped in her last race and finished last, this time I think she breaks good and uses her mid to wide running style to challenge for the early lead and a top three finish. The 8 box is a plus for her so I'm willing to give her a shot in this one.

Race 8 - 583 yards - Grade D - SUPERIOR HAGLER - 7 box - Blocked on the backstretch in his last race, I look for him to get back on track here with a better result as he drops in class from Grade C to D. Can go early and he will need to hit the lid in this one to have a shot at challenging the frontrunners but at the nice odds he should go off at, worth a small play at least.

Good luck to all.
