Plenty to Crow about

A year after winning the MWD Partnership’s first Category One competition in the Grand Prix, Coonough Crow produced a courageous performance to overcome a bad trap draw and no small amount of buffeting, to land the £10,000 Ladbrokes Kent St.Leger.

For trainer Mark Wallis, there was a short apology owed to ‘Sheryl’ Crow  . . . . (apologies for the varying sound quality)

Racing Manager Danny Rayment selected six of the 12 winners on favourite friendly card: 5/6, 4/5, 11/8, 5/6, 4/1, 8/15. However, along with assistant Jamie Norris, the combined burden of their selections proved too heavy a burden for Baywatch Bullet to overcome in the big race.

Georgia still one step ahead

For the second week in a row, Queen Georgia overcame some fairly tough early scrimaging to land the quickest a qualifier of the Time Greyhound Nutrition Three Steps To Victory.

Drawn black in the first semi final, she found herself on the wrong side of Noelles Milano and then as the filler in a greyhound sandwich as Magical Rubble moved across her. But showing great tenacity, she powered on in the later stages for a four length win in 28.79.

Acomb Irene never saw a rival after flying the boxes in the second semi. Although she was pursued by Savana Heross, his favourite trip is a week away and in safely qualified in second place.

Veteran Clairekeith Remy celebrated his 75th outing with a typical gutsy performance for Carl Gardiner. He too had to to battle hard but then held off the strong finishing Millridge Tanic.

** Queen Gerogia’s qualification means that she has now been withdrawn from Derby heat 14.

Final betting: 11/8 Queen Georgia, 11/4 Savana Heross, 4/1 Acomb Irene, 7/1 Clairekeith Remy, Millridge Tanic, 16/1 Noelles Milano

UPDATE: Today’s meeting at Towcester was cancelled due to a hare issue.

Track spokesman James Chalkley said: “I am still to get the full report, but my understanding is that the hare cable broke and wrapped itself around the mechanism and pulleys causing some damage; so it wasn’t a case of simply replacing the cable.

“Given the time involved in fixing it, and the length of time that the dogs would have had to be in kennels, we had no option other than to cancel the meeting.”

Our thoughts are with the popular Perry Barr Racing Manager Martin Seal who is on compassionate leave with his mum in a very poorly condition in hospital.
