Too Good Thommo looks ready to bowl the opposition over in the first of Tuesday’s four heats of the Madbookie Goulburn-Richmond Series (race four, 350m).

The Mark Bell-trained greyhound jumps from box six aiming to improve on his last two efforts, which have seen him run unplaced in strong company at Maitland.

Too Good Thommo, who is owned by a syndicate of lawn bowlers from the St John’s Park Bowling Club in Sydney’s west, has built the decent record of four wins and nine minor placings from 20 starts so far.

This will be his first start at Goulburn but the son of champion Black Magic Opal and Classy Love has run some good races in strong company at Dapto and Bulli.

He faces a decent field in this race but does his best work from wide draws and looks to have enough quality to win this. 

Silver Wing (box six) is much better than her last start back of the pack finish at Ballarat on April 1 indicates and is capable of winning the fourth heat (race seven).

The Joanne Smith-trained greyhound has built a strong record over the short courses and has won twice recently at Canberra and Wagga. 

Titan Sprite and Falcon Flies (both box one) looks the top chances in heats two and three respectively. 

Beegumbah Rumba looks capable of scoring another victory in the 4th grade RedTV Video production Stakes (race eight, 440m).

The Vicki Prest-trained greyhound scored his 11th career win over the 450m at Shepparton last start and won his only previous start from box four.

Classy performer Brilliant Shot (box six) looks the top pick in a quality Anzac Day Stakes (race 10, 440m).

Brilliant Shot, who was in the kennel of premier trainer Anthony Azzopardi until recently, has built the quality record of 19 wins and 31 minor placings from 68 starts and placed well over the 400m at Maitland on his last start. 

Eleven races are on the card and action starts at 11.42am.
