backorder a domain:  which to choose?

Hi,

A domain name is on the redemption period state, and I would like to backorder it.

The information I have is:

Registrar: MELBOURNE IT, LTD. D/B/A INTERNET NAMES WORLDWIDE
Whois Server: whois.melbourneit.com
Referral URL: http://www.melbourneit.com
Name Server: NS1.SMARTNAME.COM
Name Server: NS2.SMARTNAME.COM

Which would get best chances for a backorder:  snapnames? melbourne it? Godaddy? I'd rather go with dodaddy, as all my domains are there.  

Also, when backordering a domain, say with snapnames, does this bring more "danger" that it would go to auction, or that they keep the domain?  For information, the domain is not "that interesting" in general, so, I doubt there would be so many interested buyers.

Thank's!

Thanks jhoekman for your answer.

Would also anyone have experimented directly snap names backordering?  It is "safe" or do they "start promoting every backordered domain" or so?

Thanks!
