Welcome to another Saturday matinee card of exciting greyhound racing at Southland as there are 18 entertaining races on tap for our viewing and wagering pleasure. As most of you who follow the Southland preview blog may know, from time to time I like to go outside the box to try and give different viewpoints and perspectives of greyhound racing. Over the last week I have been concentrating on greyhounds that have drawn the same box at least 3 times in a row to see how they do and if that gives them any extra edge that the wagering public might could use to their benefit. This will include schooling races so if a greyhound has the same post position in a schooling contest and then draws that same box in an official contest it will count for this study. Keep in mind that on some programs there may not be any  selections to be made but on others, there might be several that meet that definition. Remember that these are greyhounds that fit the criteria above and on which MoneyMaker Mike will base the selections. As always, I will give a recap of the results in a few days when the study is over. Good luck to everyone and thanks for reading.

There is only one race on the Saturday matinee card that has a greyhound who drew the same box for the third straight time and I've listed this race below. There were no races on the Saturday evening program that fit this criteria.

Race 14 - 583 yards - Grade D - STARZ OPERA - 8 box - Her last two races have been from the same 8 box she has drawn today and she finished 3rd and 6th in those races. She does have a mid to wide running style which the post position helps but with only two top four finishes in her last 30 races, she'll certainly need a big effort if she wants to hit the board in this one.

Good luck to all.
