Two of the three NOTTINGHAM tipsters were as accurate as my darts playing after a night on the Kronenbourg. Thankfully newbie Steven Harvey was a winner first time out – £50 on a 2-1 winner for a profit of £30. Mark Pierrepont and Double Digit Bellis hit the fruit machine and the gents toilet door. That’s two x -£100 gents.
On the night that Chernobyl won a string of awards at the Baftas, the ROMFORD trio produced punting equivalent of a nuclear Armageddon. Our star performer Jason Gander set off a chain reaction. Mark Wallis drew a second successive blank week, and as for Nathan Hunt. . . .he managed to get yet another odds-on favourite turned over. (I think he owes an apology to the connections of Seaglass Sabrina 10/11).
Having Nathan tip your dog is like giving it kennel cough. No matter, he won’t shy away. He will be back next week, or be called out for cowardice.
For Regency/Sussex Cup Final night, we reunite the same Dynamic Duo from Hove, Craig Morris and Billy Boyle. Craig finished on top last week, though both made a profit on the night.
Semi final reviews Sussex Cup – Regency
Just the three tonight at Romford. The man in form: Jason Gander.
No runners far the kennel tonight and, it has to be said, not the best card on offer. But managed to come up with a few selections
Coyote Caviar (R5 T3) returned to winning ways and did it well from the front should Again turn very handy with trap 4 who also had good early but then go on to win this A6 round the last two bends £60 win
Peekaboo Dab (R12 T2) a nice young pup who was second last time out in his first 500 race looks to have a leaders chance and with still plenty off scope for improvement could see this pup make all in this A8 £40 win
Saturday night brings another twelve race card for RPGTV viewers to get their teeth into. Truth be known, tonight’s bet for me was decided early on Thursday morning.
The reason for that, I own the greyhound in question. Maybe it’s foolish to tip a dog you own but in race 8 at 8.12pm I got to be with Saleen Jake (R8 T1). A greyhound I recently bought from Patrick O’Connor in Ireland, I’m adamant Sheffield is his track having watched his videos at Tralee. He’s a son of Vulturi so is bred to stay and eventually 660m will be the making of him as he’s such a strong dog coming home.
Backed accordingly on debut he met trouble numerous times and finished 2nd, last time same story and a few good judges scribbled his name into their notebooks. The head tells me when this dog get a clear run he will win half the track. The heart just wants to witness that. Harton Tornado has good early pace in 2 and I’m hoping that means Jake will have time and space to get organised from an early stage and pick his gaps. Trap 4 Spoken For is respected dropping in grade and Trap 5 Paradise Dushess won well in A6 last time and is clearly in form. It might not be pretty viewing but if he gets a clear sight of the leaders and is three lengths down at the third bend he will pick them up. £100 win
I also have Trumpers Deano Trap 1 in race 6 at 7.41pm. A greyhound having his 86th start and a dog I love dearly. Deano loves trap 1 and loves to boss his races as soon as possible. Tonight however, he will be taken on early by Trap 2 Saleen Finn and Trap 4 Bitcoin Jack which means the race won’t be run to suit him. As for the winner, that’s one for you to decide. My eyes will be on my old friend Trumpers Deano who will still be the apple of my eye wherever he finishes tonight.
Glynn Dobbs (but tips more winners as Glynn Hobbs)
Looking through Saturday’s card I thought there was a few interesting races with some dogs stepping up in distance following lockdown, and back into the unknown.
With this in mind I have decided to pick one of these dogs in the first race Aberama Gold (R1 T6). This dog is making the step back up into the 500m territory but looking at its breeding should relish this. With some good sprint times behind him, and hopefully rain at Sheffield, this step up should suit him well. I have decided to go all in.£100 win
