The Dapto Megastar takes place at Dapto Greyhounds over 520m at Group One level.

Heading the heats lineup is Melbourne Cup runner-up and Australia's best greyhound in Simon Told Helen.

He is the overall favourite for the final and the very short priced favourite in his heat on Thursday night.

Flying Ricciardo is in close attendance in the betting in what could be a match race between the two.

2020 Dapto Megastar Tips

Dapto Megastar 2020 Best Bet - Simon Told Helen (Tipped at $2.25)

The $900,000 man, or at least that is what he will be if he is to take out the final.

He was the Melbourne Cup runner-up just a fortnight ago and is ready to take on a much weaker field at Group One level here.

He is one of the toughest dogs on the planet, pushing his way through an squeeze and not losing any ground on the speed in front of him.

After winning his heat with ease, he has come up with box one where he can just jump to the front or sit behind the leader and win, as he has done 25 times throughout his career.

Dapto Megastar 2020 Next Best Bet - Flying Ricciardo

This speed demon has been defeated just four times, missing the top two just once in his 21 career starts.

He has incredible early pace and should be able to burn his rivals off in the first heat.

He is the logical one that will jump to the front that Simon Told Helen will have to chase.

His early pace last week was simply too quick for his rivals in the heat, which is what sees the star at $4 in the betting.

Dapto Megastar 2020 Value Bet - Winlock On Top

If disaster were to strike the two up top, then this is the dog who has the course stats to be in contention.

He was second to Simon Told Helen last week and although not challenging the champ, he showed that he is much better favoured drawn an outside box and has the early speed to make use of any mistakes around the first bend.

He is the king of Dapto, but just needs to raise the bar again to trouble the top two in betting, and has to be careful of the speed of Shetland to his outer.
