How to spend $50 on TAB’s ‘All In’ Silver Chief market

Melbourne Cup placegetter Kinson Bale will be the headline act when The Meadows plays host to eight ‘sudden death’ heats of the Group 1 TAB Silver Chief – Victorian greyhound racing’s Derby – this Wednesday night.

Prepared by star young training couple Correy and Samantha Grenfell, Kinson Bale ran third to superstar Koblenz in the Group 1 Melbourne Cup final late last month and heads TAB’s ‘All In’ Silver Chief market at $6.

Form expert The Watchdog agrees Kinson Bale, which has drawn Box 1 in heat 4 and with 46 starts is one of the most experienced sprinters in the male-only series, is the sprinter to beat.

“Rightly so! He’s come up with ‘the red’ in his heat, it’s a good heat, but I think he’s probably got the edge at the moment, race fitness-wise and class-wise. He should be leading all the way.”

The Watchdog’s $50 spend

$25 on Kinson Bale to win at $6
$13 on Substantial to win at $12
$3 on Earthworm Jim to win at $101
$3 on High End to win at $101
$3 on Weblec Raider to win at $101
$3 on Fabriola Ximenez to win at $301

Zippy Tesla (heat 3) and Paddy Wants Pats (heat 8) share the second line of ‘All In’ betting at $7; however The Watchdog believes both are under the odds.

“If we know Zippy Tesla is going to run his 29.60sec from Phoenix night he’d be an absolute moral to win on Wednesday but I’m still a bit sceptical about the run.”

In evaluating his theoretical $50 ‘All In’ investment, The Watchdog has taken a liking to three $101 chances in Weblec Raider (heat 5), Earthworm Jim (heat 6) and High End (heat 8), while he says $301 prospect Fabriola Ximenez is capable of causing a massive boilover in a hot second heat.

“Earthworm Jim and High End are both racing with confidence and appear well-drawn in their heats,” The Watchdog said.

“Then you’ve got Weblec Raider. He’s the forgotten greyhound. He’s gone 29.75sec at The Meadows previously and he’s probably come up in one of the weaker heats, so if he can time the start perfectly he’ll be able to settle in the top two or three and he’ll be quite strong in the run home.

“The real outsider which I’m keen on is Fabriola Ximenez. He’s come up with Box 5 and he’s in a good race – he’s got Substantial, Photo Man, Compliance and Blazing Times – but if they happen to bunch-up at the first turn, we know he’s quite strong and can run time coming from off the speed, so at $301 he represents value.”

WATCH: KINSON BALE (6) was able to cross and proved too tough when victorious in a heat of the Group 1 TAB Melbourne Cup in 29.47sec at Sandown Park on November 19.     Results
