There is plenty of competitive Graded action this evening for punters to get their teeth stuck into with a 12-race card at Doncaster the weekly ‘Donny Dozen’ as we’ve dubbed it.
We enjoyed at 50% strike rate last week with six winners from 12 selections at odds of 5/6, 5/4, 13/8, 2/1, 5/2 and 3/1. We’re hungry for more success this time around and are looking to be quick out of the traps with a number of fancies at the meeting. We’ve also picked out our two best bets of the evening which are our most confident selections, these are called the NAP and Next Best.

6:09: Doncaster: Barnside Rio (Trap Six)
Barnside Rio recorded a smart success at the track last month and there still looks to be plenty more to come from him. He looks perfectly drawn and is of interest in the opener.
6:28: Doncaster: Ballymac Johnsie (Trap Six)
Ballymac Johnsie was a very impressive winner last month. Despite being fourth round the opening bend, he quickened up smartly to score with ease. There looks to be plenty more to come based on that effort and he looks like the one to beat.
6:43: Doncaster: Titanium (Trap Four)
A talented bitch, she was unlucky last time when only third. You can mark that run up given the trouble in running she encountered on that occasion and she gets the verdict here.
6:58: Doncaster: Ballymac Mcgrath (Trap Five)
A dog to watch. Dropping back down into an A3 should really suit and he is the one to beat in this.
7:18: Doncaster: Kilara Annie (Trap Four)
A dog that is consistently knocking at the door. This daughter of Jaytee Dutch was third on her latest start and arguably should have done better. However, she deserves another chance in a race in which plenty of the field have questions to answer.
7:36: Doncaster: Nolas Bloom (Trap One)
He returned to some sort of form when third last time out. However, he crucially needs to break quicker from the boxes. This race looks winnable and he should be guaranteed the lead on the rails.
7:56: Doncaster: Paradise Kia (Trap One)
A bitch with talent. This daughter of Rio Quattro has looked electric in her last three starts with easy wins, the last twice coming in this grade. Crucially, she continues to show quick early pace and that could be the determining factor in her getting her head in front here.
8:17: Doncaster: Barnside Mata (Trap Four)
Was unlucky on his latest start in this grade when struck into. That essentially cost him any chance and he has to be feared with a clear run through here.
8:38: Doncaster: Misterin Rose (Trap Three)
Clearly a dog in form. He produced a smart effort in B4 grade last week to justify favouritism. He has to prove as effective in B3 company but is clearly a dog in form and edges the verdict.
8:54: Doncaster: Beech Hill Des (Trap Six)
Looks well-drawn and has shaped nicely in three trials, his latest time was particularly noteworthy. This looks a winnable event and he is of interest.
9:12: Doncaster: Devon Ranger (Trap One)
Has been quick away from the gates on his last two starts and arguably should have done better. Despite those slight concerns, this is a race she should really be winning.
9:28: Doncaster: Ballymac Mundi (Trap Five)
Posted a smart performance to score by three and a quarter-lengths on his latest start. This draw looks perfect and if he shows good pace from the boxes, he should prove tough to beat in the finale.
NAP: 6:58: Doncaster: Ballymac Mcgrath (Trap Five)
Next Best: 6:09: Doncaster: Barnside Rio (Trap Six)
You can watch the meeting through live streaming the action on your chosen device such as a laptop or phone.

You don’t even have to have a bet as with the new Watch & Bet initiative, all you need to do is login to your bookmaker account and you can watch every race for free. Tonight’s action focused on graded racing. This essentially means that all of the dogs running at the tracks are trained at Doncaster and run at the track most weeks. The highest graded race is an A2 and this goes all the way down to a B6 which is one of the lowest form of action. If successful in an A1 or A2 event, you may take the step up in grade and compete in Open Racing, which is the highest quality of greyhound racing.
