The Millenium Stand Bookmakers Golden Sprint moves on apace and tonight at Romford we are at the Semi Final stage. I have previewed the three races and posted my ante post selections out to subscribers. There is also two heats of the Tony Williams Dual Distance Trophy taking place over 575 metres with the Final a week later over 750 metres with Aero Rebel, Hometown Honey and Head iton Tom amongst the contenders.
The Betfred Gymcrack Final from Kinsley is live on Sky next Wednesday with Dean Child’s Sidaz Scotty the odds on favourite looks to hold all the aces.
The Pinpoint Recruitment Arc at Swindon starts a week tomorrow with first round heats live in the betting shops, local trainer Kevin Hutton looks to have a very strong hand.
It seems that recent feedback from the RPGTV sponsor bookmakers is all positive. They seem happy with the turnover produced from the shows being televised and this augurs well for the three month trial to become permanent.
A welcome boost to Greyhound Racing in these troubled times.
Over in Ireland the Easter Cup has reached its final stage and again Ballymac Vic was faultless and he is still available at 5/4 for victory on Saturday night. He is still available at 20/1 for the Greyhound Derby, and my sources state connections are keen to come over.
I know he’s a short price but Vic has his favourite trap 3 in the Final but he has to look smart from there as there are hazards all around, fast starting Cabra Buck inside him and Ashfield Impact wanting to go rails outside him.
Local bookmaker Ted Hegarty is taking Vic on at the track, so we can expect fireworks!
For me it’s plain and simple the best dogs step up to the mark and Ballymac Vic will show them all the way home.
Over to home track Romford for the free daily tip. The Coral on Tv Maidens Final sees favourite Kellistown Sal in blistering form she is on a five timer. She has won from the red box before and can complete the nap hand for trainer Ernie Gaskin.
Romford 9.24 Trap 1
