2021 The Phoenix Tips


The Phoenix Best Bet - Aston Rupee

The 2021 Melbourne Cup runner-up returns to attempt to turn the tables on Koblenz who did win that Group One, but this bloke was phenomenal in that event.

He was drawn awkwardly last start and although can begin like a bullet, he is a tad hit and miss at this level, but what I am liking today is what is drawn around him and I am expecting him to beat them out.

If he stays out of trouble early and can find the spot behind likely leader Koblenz who is drawn to his outer, Australia's best greyhound will win this race.

The Phoenix Next Best Bet - Koblenz

I was all over him in the Melbourne Cup due to his map and that he is arguably Australia's fastest dog out of the boxes, but this time it is not run and find the fence as it was in the cup.

This time, he needs to cross the entire field and on the odd chance that he is that length slower away as we saw in his Melbourne Cup heat, then that leaves him vulnerable from the outside.

Expect him to fire out though and bowl along in front, it will just be a matter of who is on his back on the bend and whether he has the tank to hold them off.

The Phoenix Value Bet - Spotted Elk

The Queenslander is low-flying at the moment, beating one of their better dogs last start in Extra Malt who has an explosive finish about him.

This bitch is a tad different, able to race on the pace and being one that shows mid-race pace which is dangerous for her rivals if she is sitting in the top four on the bend.

Although untested against the true stars of the country, there is no reason why she can't match it with them.
