SUCCESSFUL gambler Harry Findlay gives our readers his tips ahead of Thursday's greyhound racing at the Coventry Stadium:

“The money poured in for Vegas Gambler on his debut last week and it soon became apparent why when he stretched out in style before the first bend and even an in-form From The Ghetto had no answers down the far side, when if anything the winning 6/4 favourite pulled further clear before going onto win by two-and-a-quarter lengths.

“It was hard not to be impressed by his performance but fortunately he has only been upped one grade from A5 to A4 and he rates as the nap on Thursday night's card once again from T5 in race 8 at 9:30pm.

“Bit View Mozart was an unlucky loser when I tipped him up at a big price in this column a few weeks back and although he was only fifth on his comeback run after taking a tumble, he showed the speed that he possesses and he can finally break his maiden tag from T6 in race 6 at 9:00pm.

“There are two meetings this weekend. The open race card starting at 6:15 on Sunday night and Saturday's graded card also features two heats of the Flying Winner Marathon.

“Be lucky, HF.”
