Another profitable week for us last Friday with three winners from four selections – hope you were on!!
Racing Post Greyhound TV is live from Romford and Belle Vue on Friday with the Ecc Timber Oaks and Laurels taking the main stage with the semi-finals been run and the finals live on Sky Sports next week.
Let’s crack on and find the winners!!
MILEHEIGHT ALBA looks very well drawn in the 8.29 from T3 and looks likely to make all in the second semi-final of the Ecc Timber Laurels, the Pat Rosney trained greyhound has never been beaten over course and distance and if leading round here he will take the world of beating – clearing Invitation Shaw (T1) into the corner will make or break the race for our selection. Ballymac Iago (T5) won well last week but will need a similar smash break to lead this field, while Jordans Brianna (T4) will also be looking to grab an early advantage but is unlikely to do so in a field full of early paced types.
EVANTA EVITA can make all from T3 in the first semi final of the Oaks at 9.17, the Mark Wallis trained bitch ran well in defeat last time out making most before been caught on the line by Jaytee India, that was Evita’s second run after a lay off and she should strip fitter tonight and will take all the beating, if she pings and leads round it should be all over. Battyford Tracey (T5) has been running well recently and could give our selection most to do, especially on the run to the first bend.
Over at Romford the best bet on the card is PUKANE JOE from T3 in the 9.06 maiden race over the standard 400 meter trip, the recent recruit from Ireland ran well in defeat at Hove and looks the likely leader here in a very winnable race, having watched the Irish videos of this greyhound I can see a smash break and trap to line victory. Key to the race will be holding Aero Gerry (T4) into the first corner, if doing so Joe should make all.
The final selection runs in the last race at Romford from T2, ROSEALINDA ran with credit during the Essex Vase and will appreciate this step down in class – with little early pace on her inside she should grab the rails and lead round with the early paced Steve’s Dream (T5) if doing so I expect ‘Linda’ to pick up that rival and take the prize, key to the race is clearing T1 into the first bend and avoiding any potential trouble.
