The greatest greyhound show on earth starts today at Wmbledon with heats 1 -11 of the 22 heats.
In my younger days I would be there watching everysingle one and follow the event right through to the final night.
Now my enthusiasm is a bit dappened , mainly because since the Stow has closed I have not been involved in ownership and this year because there is no value in the betting for me.
You must have early pace to win the Derby because of the tightness of the bends and if you are a wide runner even better. I can look past the handsome chap pictured, Razldazyl Jayfkay. He has it all and demonstrated his well-being with a sparking 28.20 trialstake win over the course last time out. Best price for him at present is 9/1 , so I have added a couple more to my portfolio to see if I can trade out further down the line……..
1) Blonde Snapper has just won the Golden Sprint and was 14/1 at this satge last year. he can be backed at a massive 80/1 with Bet365 ( you might get a fiver on with them)
2) Judicial Ruling has early to burn and a dark “horse” from Ireland and is a stand out 66/1 with Paddy Power ( the Magic Sign are more careful and go just 25/1)
3)Castlebridge Dan trained like the Snapper by Mark Wallace is a silly 200/1 with most. He boasts good sprinting speed at Romford and as he is just out of the puppy stage and must improve on his 28.72 clocking in a recent trial stake
Will update next week…..
