Hoping for a bit extra
TREVOR Thompson will be hoping one of his dogs can find a little extra when greyhound racing resumes at Casino.
North Lismore trainer Thompson has Layla Rose Hi going from box two in the $2015 Casino Golf Club Stayers Stake (620m) at the meeting today.
The two-year-old bitch has had a disappointing racing career so far, with only seven placings from 27 outings.
But a decent showing saw it finish second over 620m among some handy campaigners last Friday.
The smart money could go on Phantom Dottie, which will start from box eight.
Although the bitch has only one win from 27 outings, the dog has racked up four consecutive runner-up spots between 520m and 600m.
Trainer Pat Lavis will be hoping the three-year-old can secure its first win since December.
Meanwhile, Lavis will be confident one of his charges can continue its winning ways.
Stratheden trainer Lavis has Bogan Miss going from box five in the $2015 Casino RSM Club Stake (484m).
The promising two-year-old produced a storming run to take out the $4000 Beef Week Cup at Queen Elizabeth Park last Friday.
With 11 placings from 15 outings, the bitch is again the one to back.
White Pony, which will go from box four, seems the next best.
There could be some value in box three runner Sharlani.
The two-year-old bitch has been in inconsistent recently but goes well over 484m.
Trained by Yorklea's Barbara Beach, the dog has multiple wins and a decent podium record over the distance.
There are 12 races, the first at 12.04pm.
