Early confidence in Destiny with Jacket set to get underway
The Premier Greyhound Racing Golden Jacket worth £20,000 to the winner gets underway with six first round heats at Crayford this afternoon. The category one event staged over 714m is supported by the 540m category two Peter Bussey Memorial. The first 3 in each of the 6 Golden Jacket heats will qualify through to the semi final stage next Saturday whilst it’s the first 4 home from each of the 3 Peter Bussey heats who will progress.
New Destiny lines up as the ante post favourite for the Jacket with 4/1 still available although that price has been trimmed into 7/2 in places after support arrived post the entry and draw stage. Hopes Paddington and Romeo Hotshot just about head the betting for the Peter Bussey at around the 5/1 mark however with El Tornillo and Minnie Bullet only just behind them in the betting at around 6/1 this serves perfect warning of the competitive nature of the competition.
Greyhound Star caught up with Emily Wallis to gain her thoughts –
Classy Monmore card not to be missed
The category one Ladbrokes Winter Derby worth £10,000 to the winner reaches the semi final stage at Monmore early this afternoon and a high class and hugely competitive competition is again set to produce some racing action right out of the top drawer.
The first semi final to be run at 102pm could easily be the final itself with Links Maverick , Coolavanny Shado (defending champion) and Churchfield Syd lining up in opposition it’s a race not to be missed. The second and third heats are races to savour too with the match up in semi final three between kennel mates Queen Joni and King Capaldi particularly catching the eye. The competition is laced with quality and if you can’t make it to the track the advice is to stop whatever you’re doing and enjoy what this sport is really about and that’s top class greyhounds taking each other on.
