Greyhound Eyecatchers – Ten Dogs To Follow For Profit
The following ten greyhounds all caught the eye in recent races and could be profitable to follow in the coming weeks.
BLINKY BOBS (Crayford, A5)
Barry O'Sullivan's debutant suffered a rough ride early on moving off from trap two, but showed speed associated with far better company to recover and go down just a length. Should open his account soon.
KILLINAN BLUEBOY (Harlow, OR)
Sean White's dog was expected to register a debut success in a 415m maiden but was hopelessly left at the boxes. Really caught the eye after that aberration and sure to be a popular order when returning to the track.
JACKOS ESCALADE (Henlow, A8)
Jason Gornall's pup won his heat of a valuable kennelstakes then finished a creditable second in the final. Stays on very strongly and, whilst he can win again over 460m, could be destined for a longer trip in time.
FARLOE SANDY (Newcastle, A5)
Jimmy Wright's beautifully-bred pup is now without a win in three attempts, but her latest effort was comfortably her best to date. She chased an impressive winner hard, showing good back-staright pace in particular, and is sure to win her fair share.
DROOPYS SOUTHBOY (Towcester, OR)
John Mullins's dog made a winning British debut and then showed searing early pace at Romford only to leave a gap on the inside at halfway which Uluru Candy capitalised on. Three from six in Shelbourne sprints, he looks a serious recruit to the two-bend ranks, especially given his scope for improvement as he gets to know the tracks.
THOMAS GOLDEN (Peterborough, A6)
Geraldine's Kovac's pup is seeking his first success after five starts at Sheffield and two at Posh. Showed good pace but ran off the bend, more course experience will help perhaps allied to a wide draw in six.
QUICK BUCK (Romford, S1)
Martyn Wiley's dog chased home Jaytee Dave to confirm his well-being having finished in the first two in five of his last six races. Generally gets dropped back to S2 sharpish but looks a player whatever level he faces.
HALCROW BOUND (Shawfield, OR)
Early trouble meant Julie Bateson's dog was quickly on the back foot, but fine middle speed and a gritty attitude saw him close to a little over a length. A likely candidate for the RPGTV 500 which starts this weekend.
TRANQUIL OTTER (Sunderland, A5)
Yvonne Bell's pup won at the sixth time of asking and looks the type to continue getting stronger. Finished full of running and could stay further in time, but the immediate confidence of victory should not be underestimated.
FARRAN KILCOYNE (Wimbledon, A3)
Jason Foster's charge may face the consequences for an impressive debut victory but looked a dog with scope when always in charge and can pass sterner tests that undoubtedly wait. An interesting proposition having won his sole previous start at Tralee.
