Hove Greyhounds on Sky Sports Tonight

I'm really looking forward to tonight's greyhound action on Sky Sports tonight. Hopefully I can pick a few winners too. I really want to bet on every race and I've picked something for every race but it's just not the profitable thing to do so I've limited myself to only 3 selections today.

8:15 - T5 Loyal Rebel 11/2

Ballymac Well is the short priced favourite in this race at 8/13 but I think Loyal Rebel represents good value in this race. It was two lengths down on Ballymac Well last week but I think it can improve on it's second look at the track. Loyal Rebel will get a nice run as the only middle seed in the race whereas Ballymac Well could see trouble if it doesn't get a flyer!

8:50 - T3 Special Liberty 2/1 NB

A repeat of last week's run would see Special Liberty have 3-4 lengths on anything else on this race. He got a clear run that day and I don't see any reason why that won't happen again as traps one and two don't pack much early. Really though it was going to be 5/4ish when I checked the prices.

9:10 - T6 Gabba Gabba Hey 7/2 NAP

Don't expect to see GGH pinging the lids but this thing will be finishing like a train and is my bet of the night. Brimardon Star is the favourite at about 5/2 and is a dog I like but without doubt GGH can win here. Slight negative in that it has had a reasonably long lay off but Gabba broke the track record over a similar distance at Belle Vue only 3 runs ago.

GL all,

Loyal Rebel pisses the first one to secure me a profit. Went off at 3/1, glad I go the early 11/2.

However, Special Liberty didn't get out and didn't get a run. Never looked like winning.

So very sick - if the track was a metre longer Gabba Gabba Hey would have won. Pretty gutted.

Going to look out for this in future races, very good dog and impressive enough tonight after a long lay off.
