Best Behave to win

Despite a sizzling time recorded by Best Behave at Albion Park last week Mick Zammit has concerns about tonight’s favourite in the Grade 5 (520m) at Albion Park at 8.08pm (Qld time).

The daughter of Just The Best jumped well from box five and scored a comfortable win over Blackberry in 30.09 sec.

Like tonight, Zammit, husband of trainer Selena, went into the race sheepish knowing that Best Behave is best when she can get to the rails.

Last Thursday she ran an opening section of 5.79 sec which easily eclipsed her two previous first sectionals at the track 5.91 sec and 5.93 sec.

If Best Behave (box seven)  repeats what she did last week she could position up second behind likely leader Miss Milkshake.

“I think she will go well but I would have preferred an inside box,”┬áZammit said.

“She is quite calm in the boxes and hopefully she can jump well again but I can’t be that sure she will do that, I just don’t know.

“I think she has average speed early but when she finds the fence she is right.

“She has plenty of ability and probably could go quicker than 30.09 sec if she finds the fence and doesn’t get crowded.

“She would have been a even money chance in this race if she had one of the three inside boxes.”

Best Behave is owned by Northern Rivers couple Peter and Helen Simpson who also race Sobbing Destiny with the Zammits.

“I’ve known them for about 16 years,” Zammit said.

“It is good to win races for the Simpsons.

“Best Behave is actually quicker over the 520m than Sobbing Destiny but can’t match her early pace.

“I think she will be better when she races over 600m.

“I think Miss Milkshake is the obvious danger.”

Miss Milkshake is one of four greyhounds wily trainer Ron Ball has racing at Albion Park.

Degas Vegas looks tough to beat in final race, the Big Dog Pet Foods (520m, 9.52pm Qld time).

The slow beginner has good track sense and has been racing in strong form.

Boy Mail looks the main danger. It looked like a world beater on Monday but needs the rail to find its best.

Ball has Tough As and National Sprint Champion Metz Magic in the Best 8 (520, 9.11pm Qld Time).

It is a tough ask of Tough As despite its good recent form but you can never rule out Metz Magic in any race.

The slow beginner just needs clear running to be a chance.

Bogie King looks the toughest to beat in that event.

The 2011 Queensland Greyhound Of The Year nominee is well boxed in three and has been racing well.
