Greyhound Derby 2020

I have a few fancies tonight for the 2nd half of the 1st Round heats of the 2020 Greyhound Derby being run at Nottingham for the second consecutive year. I’ve highlighted some win picks, a ‘Top 3’ treble and a couple of outright picks with some standout prices that wont last long! Win Yankee7.34 Trap 2 Droopys Addition7.51 Trap 6 Bower Luke8.21 Trap 5 Vics Charm8.36 Trap 6 Faughan Rebel (NAP)241/1 with Skybet Top 3 Treble these are all the dogs to finish in the Top 3. Only certain firms offer this market. 7.34 Trap 4 Lenson Whelan7.51 Trap 4 King Dylan9.26 Trap 2 Kilara Icon9.5/1 Treble with Ladbrokes & Coral. Very fair for 3 strong running dogs who will perform well in what will be tough conditions tonight. Outright PicksLadbrokes are standout best price on my two picks below:Feudal Spirit (40/1) best price 28/1 elsewhereHopes Doggy (50/1) best price 40/1 elsewhere Good luck – heats can be watched free on RPGTV or on...

Caveat  – I do this for free, I do this for fun. Please share and retweet if you like what I do and complain elsewhere if you dont. Opening Night… It’s finally ready (almost). After a long wait, the new £10 million stadium is set to re-open next week. I’ll be getting an early preview on Champion Stakes Semi Finals night from the Pavillion Restaurant but will try to put up some pics for the evening so follow me on twitter (@greyhoundblogs). Jackpot up for grabs… Worth also noting that Colossus Bets has a £15,000 Jackpot for anyone that can pick 8 winners tonight. Ive covered some of the races so why not perm them up… You could even create your own syndicate and let others join. Jackpot starts at 18:27, Placepot (£2000) starts at 19:03. Ok, for the racing… 6.27 – Tricky race to open the card, lots of unknowns – the biggest being how will likely Fav (T3) take to the track. A Hove and Central Park sprinter, this lightly raced type will need to be on its’ toes around here but if breaking well enough could get favourite backers off to a start! 6.44 – Another Puppy Open! Traps 1-5 are all going to be looking for the rails early here which could give “Buggy” in T6 a solo out wide. He will have to break well...

@greyhoundblogs Greyhound Derby 2nd Round – Friday

Afternoon all. Now that the first round is all done and dusted we have all seen the dogs competitively race around Nottingham. Last week we saw a track record among 32 competitive heats which saw the strong Irish Challenge show they mean business this year! Tonight sees 8 of the 16 second round heats and I’ve added my selections for the evening here. Enjoy! Heat 1 Nottingham 7.26 Droopy’s Verve received absolutely no breathing space from the boxes in T2 last week however tonight should have a clear round the inside. With competition upfront early, the rail is the place to be and with a vacant T2 he can show that the first round performance should be put behind him. It’s rare for me to advise ‘going in’ on an 8/13 shot but Verve is a class apart here.    Droopys Verve – To Win –  8/13   Heat 2 Nottingham 7.42 Ultra competitive heat and no bet here.   Heat 3 Nottingham 7.57 There’s a lack of early pace in this race which is likely to suit the bookends Desperado Dan and Lemon Express. One which entered the notebook last week however was Blue East who at Even Money top 3 Finish (Coral, Ladbrokes) looks a good bet tonight. He broke well enough behind Emers Cookie last week however was bought to an absolute stop down the back...
