Thinking about having a flutter in Wednesday night’s TAB Warrnambool Cup?
Nobody knows their greyhounds quite like the people who train them, and Molly Haines has been busy catching up with connections of every contender to get the inside mail on every runner in the prestigious race.
Check out the videos below and it might just help you get an edge on fellow punters and land the winner.
Little River trainer David Burnett says his dual Group 1 winner Simon Told Helen should be better second up from a spell after being run down by Zambora Smokey in his heat.
“It’s all up to him and whether he can jump and get that bit of a break on them that he didn’t get last week,” Burnett said of Simon Told Helen, the TAB favourite at $2.15.

Meanwhile, Jason Thompson was very impressed with Zambora Smokey’s performance, with the greyhound the second elect at $2.40 after clocking the fastest heat time of 25.08sec and notching his seventh straight win.
“I was probably a bit surprised that he was able to come from behind and run Simon Told Helen down. He had never been in a pressure race like that before and to see him run the way he did was very encouraging,” the Pearcedale trainer said.

While Thompson has two chances in the Warrnambool Cup – Zambora Smokey and Razor Sharp – the Dailly kennel has four.
Tom Dailly wasn’t prepared to rule out any of his finalists, including rank outsider Leon Bale ($31).
“I think the dog that will get the clearest run of all our dogs might be Leon Bale (7). Faithy Bale (6) might get out and go to the rail giving him a clear run,” Dailly said.
