It’s Friday so that can mean only one thing – Romford greyhound tips and Sunderland greyhound tips, with action from both live on Racing Post Greyhound TV, it’s decent competitive racing this evening and we have plenty of races to get stuck into.
Once we have tonight out of the way is all eyes on Wimbledon for the thirteen William Hill Greyhound Derby trials stakes races tomorrow evening. The card is live on RPGTV, it should be a cracker.
The feature race this evening is the 10.11 open over the six bend 575 metre trip.
This race is all about the break, if Borna Genie (T1) was to hold the rails and lead round she would be a danger to all but she might just lack a yard of early in this class. Dower Duke (T2) is more than capable on a going day but as been a little below his best of late. Pharisee Flyer (T3) has won his last two races and is in top form but will he ping from T3?. EUROPEAN QUEEN (T6) is the PGT Free Friday Tip. The Chris Allsopp trained daughter of College Causeway was ultra impressive over course and distance last Friday and if she repeats that sectional she will be very hard to beat, the key to the race will be clearing Fivestar Clipper (T4) into the first bend, do that and it’s race on.
Over at Sunderland punters have a competitive graded card to try and work out, a race that interested me was the A1 at 9.48. Patchys Tara looks well drawn in T2 and if the early paced railer can clear T1 into the first corner and lead round she will take all the beating. Wicky Lar (T4) is a consistent sort over course and distance and will be looking to lead the middle runners and follow T2 around the first couple of bends. Ballymac Gerald shows all sorts of pace down the back straight but often ruins his chances by going very wide at the fourth bend, will he do the same again tonight?.
PGT Free Friday Tip – EUROPEAN QUEEN – 10.11 Romford.
Moving on to Saturday and it’s Wimbledon live on RPGTV
The William Hill Greyhound Derby is just around the corner and all the main players are starting to trial and run in these trial stakes races now, I’ll personally be taking a very close look at the runners to try and dig out some Ante Post value over the next week or so. 2014 Derby winner Salad Dodger runs in the 9.40 and it will be interesting to see how he’s goes on his first competitive run since the 24th July 2015. He has gone well in trials and looks well drawn on Saturday evening to give a good account of himself. Ballymac Brogan looks the likely winner of the race from T4, the key to victory will be holding the classy Fiery Splendour (T5) into the first corner. Look out for Romany Rouge (T6) off the last bend, the Peterborough raider stays very well and would be a danger to all if handy down the back straight. Other notable runners on Saturday evening are Kippers Usian (T1, 10.26), See No Gamble (T6, 10.26) and Viking Jack from T5 in the final race on the card the 10.40.
Sunday – Henlow live on Racing Post Greyhound TV
As ever on a Sunday evening greyhound punters have a tricky mixed card at Henlow to try and work out. We have eight graded races and five opens to get stuck into, at this very early stage one that appeals based a plot draw is Boyles Bolt from T1 in the 8.43 open race over the 428 meter distance. The lightly raced son of Head Bound is blessed with early pace and with this short run into the first corner he can put that to good use and lead round. On the bunny he would be very hard to beat, the slight concern is the lack of a look round Henlow. As ever the price offered by the bookmakers will make or break whether i back Boyles Bolt, its all about getting the value prices and beating the bookies.
