Thief & Dogs ‘show stealers’?

TAB is offering $3.00 for the Western Bulldogs to defeat Melbourne in tonight’s ‘top of the table’ blockbuster and star greyhound Catch The Thief to win at Geelong. Now ‘that’s a steal’!

Both teams have won nine games from 10 rounds, with the Bulldogs the AFL ladder leaders from the Demons.

Last week, the Western Bulldogs were ‘full of bark’ defeating St Kilda by a massive 111pts, while Melbourne suffered a ‘hellish’ 1pt loss to the Adelaide Crows.

The ‘Dees’ have gone off the boil during the past two weeks and although the ‘Doggies’ have lost gun midfielder Adam Treloar, they should steal the win.

Meanwhile, the Jason Thompson-trained, Catch The Thief – a 12-time Group race finalist – returned to his brilliant best when runner-up to Tiggerlong Tonk in last week’s G1 Harrison-Dawson at Sandown Park.

Catch The Thief, who has won 22 races from 47 starts, won last year’s G2 WA Derby. He’s also been runner-up in a G1 Adelaide Cup and G2 Shepparton Cup, and a G1 Topgun finalist.

The Bulldogs v Demons clash at Marvel Stadium commences at 7.50pm, while Catch The Thief ($1.60F) is in Race 8 Box 5 at 9.28pm.

WATCH: Catch The Thief (8) nabs G1 Australian Cup runner-up Fernando Bluey (4) in a Harrison-Dawson heat at Sandown Park on May 13.
