Prince Louie was a terrific last start winner and looks capable of repeating that form at the latest Goulburn meeting.
The Charlie Gatt-trained newcomer jumps from box five in the first of three heats of the Palmerbet 1-3 Wins Series (race five, 440m) aiming to further extend his career record of three wins and a placing from seven starts so far.
Prince Louie first caught the eye with a smart 25.15 win over this trip in February and underlined his potential with a smart 20.08 triumph over the 350m at Goulburn last week. That was an impressive effort in decent company and the son of Lochinvar Marlow and Bokarm Louie looks capable of defeating these.
Bombshell Bandit (box two) looks the potential pick in what seems a hugely competitive second heat. An impressive newcomer from the gun Jodie Lord kennel, Bombshell Bandit has scored three wins and a placing from her five starts so far. All three of those victories have been over the 440m at Canberra so she is well suited to his distance and appears well drawn in this race.
Honey I’m Home (box one) returned to winning ways with a smart 19.96 victory from box eight over the 350m at Goulburn last week and can take advantage of the favourable draw in the third heat (race seven). The lightly raced greyhound has shown flashes of strong form in his interrupted 12-race career and can score another win from this draw.
In other Goulburn Tuesday action, What to Wear (box seven) has been very unlucky so far but can earn a deserved victory in trace one over the 350m. The Edmund O’Brien-trained greyhound is seeking a maiden win after eight starts but has placed in three of her last four races and was only beaten by a neck at Goulburn last week.
Best bet of the day at Goulburn looks like True Dream, who jumps from box four in the day’s eighth race over the 440m. The classy Ray Welsh-trained greyhound has built the sound record of seven wins and 10 minor placings from 28 starts and has had some good victories at NSW country tracks. She has won twice and placed four times previously at Goulburn and can overcome the tricky draw in this field. The 10-race meeting starts at 12.27pm.
