Brisbane Cup 2020 Greyhound Betting Tips & Odds - Can Black Opium score her second Group One?

An elite field lines up for the 2020 Brisbane Cup with Australia's best dog in Simon Told Helen heading the market.

Run over 520m at Albion Park, this Group One features some of Australia's best dogs and most popular dogs, including Hooked On Scotch, Black Opium and Who Told Stevie.

Expect a thrilling finish to the race with the early speed all across the boxes.

Brisbane Cup Best Bet - Black Opium

There was not a more dominant heat run on the night of the heats, with this girl winning by 12 lengths on the lines, jumping like a jet and having the race won by the first turn.

A winner of over $500,000 in prize money, the bitch from the all conquering Jason Thompson team is having her first crack at Group One level since her win in the Sapphire Crown at Sandown.

She has run into a field here that is not short of class with the likes of Australia's best dog Simon Told Helen and everyone's favourite champ Hooked On Scotch also taking his part in the race.

Drawing five could be sticky with some speed to the inside of her and fro box seven, but class could prevail with the right run.

If she can begin as she did last week, she will have herself in the right position to win her second Group One.

Brisbane Cup Value Bet - Hooked On Scotch

The champion of Australian Greyhound racing, bounced back to his powerful best in last week's heat, jumping well to position himself outside the leader and boot clear on the final turn.

The squeeze box does make things tricky for him with Black Opium and Oh Mickey to his outside, likely to cross, but there should be room to his inside with Shakey Diesel likely to cop a squeeze.

Already a two time Group One winner from just 24 starts, he is one of Australia's most popular dogs who is trademarked for his almighty turn of foot.

If he can jump on terms and produce his finish that we know he has, he presents great value at $7.
