The king is back. While others doubted you, we always knew that you would come through Jimmy!

On a good night for the NEWCASTLE tipsters, one man soared, Shearer-like, above the opposition. After taking a (much needed) break on Tuesday, Jimmy Fenwick was on the premises again last night.

Now while it is true that the odds on Nice As Ice were only slightly longer odds than the sun rising tomorrow (4-7), he did flag up Black Olive at 10-3 when the page went live, only for the Pelaw bitch to be returned at 10-11.  £74.02 profit.

It would be fair to say that Black Olive got all three tipsters out of jail. Though it did mean that Steve Anderson (who shamelessly and disloyally ignored Bramble Reggie) deserved no better than a £4.55 loss, while Jimmy Wright continued his winning streak by including Coolavanny Bani for a £69.55 profit on the night. (Which is £169.55 more than Rab McNair finished with on Sunday.)


At PERRY BARR, Paul Gebhard and Hannah Prince both tipped up 2-1 winner Moyar Prince among their selections. Paul finished the night on -£10 while Hannah was ‘in the blue’ at £50 profit. Shame Hannah DIDN’T HAVE MORE FAITH IN THE KENNEL’S 4-1 AND 5-2 WINNERS ON THE NIGHT! Just saying!

Robert Short would have been counting his money as Dolla Wisecrack came from last to take the lead at the third bend only to check up and finish last. What did your mother tell you about gambling Robert! (Even with imaginary money). Let that be a lesson to you.


Following his humiliation on Monday, Peter Harnden is spending a week of self loathing and inner reflection at a Buddhist spiritual retreat in Barnsley. Defending the heavyweight belt (he only drops to welterweight during race preparation) is Big Mark Pierrepont. His challengers are Alan ‘Double Digit’ Bellis – a man who sneers at anything less than 9-1and the former Terence Urquhart, now simply ‘Terry’ who had a £162.50 winning night on debut and was part of a Nottingham trio who couldn’t pick their noses next time out.

Mark Pierrepont:

Barrigone Claw (R7 T4) A dog who regularly came from the back of the pack over the short four bend trip at Peterborough in A1 and A2 class and many would have thought the 500m at Nottingham would prove ideal.  The truth be known although he’s managed to win an A3 and A4 since arriving at the track he’s not recaptured the form of his maiden open victory here from the summer of 2019 just yet.  A proven winner both off the front and from behind over the 620m distance at Peterborough he can find this step up in trip to 680m ideal despite reaching veteran status in just a few months time £50 win.
Dark Ocean (R10 T5) very consistent greyhound for trainer Anna Thompson who possesses a huge amount of early and middle pace.  Completed an A2 double on Monday and attempts the hat-trick this evening.  It won’t be easy as this is another high class A2 event at Nottingham but a similar break can see him leading once again and he should have enough in hand come the run in to hold on £50 win.

Alan Bellis

Santas Slick (R7 T6) Alec Stone’s stunning white and black dog looks every inch the stayer when appearing over four bends , packs a finishing kick that few can match over the tough 500m here.  That said he’s yet to win over six bends despite a number of efforts over the trip.  I’m hopeful he can keep himself to himself out wide tonight though and go through the gears to get off the mark £50 win.
Piemans Prince (R12 T4) Colin Wilton’s greyhound reaches 5 year old in just a couple of weeks time but he’s still capable at this A3 grade.  A strong runner who can tread carefully to halfway before using his stamina to come through late.  A dog that’s more often that not well supported in the market £50 win
Terry Urquhart
Hangry Man (R5 T4) Set some decent fractions to the third turn before dropping in a hole thereafter.  Winnable race on sprint debut for Paula Timmins and can land what should be decent odds £50 win.
Swift Broom (R6 T6) Massive step down in class compared to what this greyhound has been facing of late .  Doesn’t make life easy for herself with wide running tactics at times but in this class and in this make up of race there should be little in the way of excuses for trainer Phillip Wilson’s charge £50 win.


No Paul Binks today. No he hasn’t shied off. It’s not because he felt utterly and completely humiliated by Mark Wallis £500 profit last week. He was just “busy”. And no it wasn’t anything medical. Jason Gander keeps plugging away with a nice little earner each week (now you know why he works for Ben Keith). Nathan Hunt has come out of hiding following last week’s mauling with the absolute confidence that he can be the no. 1 Welsh tipster following Robert Short’s capitulation at Perry Barr last night. (It is a fairly small league though.)

Jason Gander:

Swabys Luciejane (R7 T3) Stumbled start last week and ran a blinder to finish third. This looks a slightly easier event and the main dangers are on her outside opposed to inside. Running really well at the moment and this looks a perfect opportunity £100 win.

Nathan Hunt:

Aero RackItUp (R4 T2) Better drawn in 2 tonight. Hopefully smash out and will take a good one to beat him. £30 win.

Just to pull me out of the gutter, Pink Osteria (R11 T1) has her box and looks a touch of class against these. £70 win

Mark Wallis:

I am going with three of our own tonight including a couple whose win records aren’t as good as they might be, but they appear to have chances tonight.

Alien Sea (R6 T5) has a habit of losing races he should win, but he has been running in good company, and tonight represents a slight drop in class. £30 win

Jesses Sister (R11 T2) I keep waiting for her to get to the bend in front and if she can tonight, I don’t think they will catch her. With the favourite out, the danger is in one. The bet is, can she lead? £30 win

Passing Stranger (R12 T5) I thought he ran poorly at Hove to be honest but he is quite capable of winning this if he gets it right. £30 win + £10 treble
