After the Ballymac Eske show in the Scottish Derby last Saturday night, he is now best priced 6/1 to win the William Hill Greyhound Derby.
All roads now lead to Wimbledon, with the first round Derby heats less than two weeks away, Derby fever is rising.
All the top dogs from here and the emerald isle are heading to the Plough Lane track to familiarise themselves with the circuit.
I read this week that my early ante post advice to this newsletter Ballymac Vic is coming over for a trial in the next week or so and it’s looking positive that he will line up in the event proper.
All the races from the first round are covered on tv, with RPGTV doing the honours in round 1 and 2, then Sky taking over from round 3 onwards.
I will have all the derby moves covered and will look to unearth some decent ante post bets, I landed a 66/1 ante post finalist for my followers last year, and will try to better that this year.
I was hoping to announce some exciting news on my derby coverage, but I will have to wait till next week for that!
The Semi Finals of the Coral Regency were held last night at Hove. Both my remaining ante post selections won their semi finals and made it through to Tuesday’s Final live on Sky. So my subscribers will be hoping for their second ante post payout in a month.
Over at Romford this weeks main event is the Tony Byerley Quicksilver Trophy over 575 metres, I was hoping that my own dog Head iton Tom would be a major player in the event, but he missed the break and was just beaten in a photo to qualify for final spot.
The Final itself is wide open with the bookmakers making it 3/1 the field.
My subscribers will get my selection later this morning.
Today’s Free Tip does indeed come from Romford tonight, Dean Childs dogs are running well just now and his Murlens Crash scooted round in 23.82 a fortnight back and last week he was second to Glanmire Lad and lost nothing in defeat. There is nothing of that quality in the field tonight and he should score if in the same form.
