One good angle to consider when handicapping is the hot kennel angle. How often have you noticed that the greyhounds from a certain kennel are all breaking fast, and running at their best?
This is generally not just serendipity. There can be several reasons for this uptake in performance. One can be that the trainer has wormed the dogs in his kennel. Every once in a while, all kennels use a worm medicine to get rid of those parasites which the dogs pick up, especially in warmer climates.
This has a tendency to make the hounds feel better and thus run to their best. Maybe the dogs have become stale and the trainer makes a change in their food, which can perk up the dogs as well. Or maybe the trainer has changed the workout pattern of his kennel to spark his charges. Whatever the reason, watch for this angle, and use it to your advantage.
