SOUTHLAND Preview - Friday evening, November 20
Welcome to another Friday evening 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 this week my selections will be greyhounds who are dropping in class. Lots of times these greyhounds get overlooked for one reason or another but there is still a ton of value to be had if you chose the right one. As always I will post the results of how my selections fared and hopefully we come away with some additional cash in the pocket. Good luck to all and thanks for reading.
Race 9 - 703 yards - Grade B - SLATEX DAYTONA - 4 box - I like her to get out fast here after dropping from Grade A as she's got good early speed. She has been trying to go the front in the higher grades and with a clean break she could be hard to catch once she gets the front. There are several other greyhounds in the race that could hit the lid but I'll give her the nod here to get back on the winning track. She gave a good effort in the recent Festival Of Stakes competition so I wouldn't overlook her in this one.
Race 11 - 583 yards - Grade D - CHRIS SLADE - 4 box - He's had his share of trouble lately but I will still give him a shot in this one. I am hoping he breaks decent enough to avoid being jammed early and finds running room for his mid to wide racing style and then uses his big late closing move to make a bid for a nice money finish.
Race 13 - 583 yards - Grade A - WW'S OCTAGON - 8 box - Here is a Grade AA runner who I think has a solid chance after dropping back to Grade A. He's capable of a good rush and I'm looking for him to be closing strong down the stretch with a chance to pull the upset. Results from Wednesday's picks
Race 1 - DARK N DEMURE - finished 2nd
Race 7 - HAWKWOOD - finished 6th
Race 9 - BOC'S SDK JETT - finished 8th
