The Hobart Greyhound Racing Club is hosting the Derwent City Bowls Club on Thursday night in what is a tough card for punters.

High Choice for Mangalore trainer Debbie Cannan is in a purple patch of form and deserves the tag of pre post favourite in the Invitation (R6).

This daughter of Where’s Pedro was upstaged at Launceston Monday Night by her brother Accounts but has a recent win on the track in 26.51 and has been in the money ten of her last twelve starts.

Buzzin’ continues to improve and his last win here in a smart 26.38 was superb while Super Joe Cool also from the Mick Stringer kennel was equally impressive last week winning in 26.44 leading all the way.

Whispering Blaze should be taken in the multiples for Bracknell trainer Maurie Strickland.

Embrocadero (R3) has to overcome the six box but he looks too strong for this smart grade 5 field over 599m.

This well bred son of Premier Fantasy has had nine starts since coming to Tassie for three wins and six placings and although this will be his first run over the middle distance here his strength up the long Hobart straight should see him well placed at the finish.

Hardest to beat will be the consistent Big Jack Sparrow while Indecision certainly looks capable of running a strong race.

Larkhill Ashlee (R10) gets her chance to return to the winners list tonight courtesy of the red box. This daughter of Irish sire Larkhill Jo has been unlucky in her recent starts and deserves a change of luck for Richmond trainer Nick Howard.

Best Bets: R3 No 6 Embrocadero, R4 No 1 Stylish Bernie, R9 No 1 Proven Shiraz.

Best E/W: R5 No 1 Regal Moon, R8 No 1 Still Stuing, R10 No 1 Larkhill Ashlee.
