Coronation Cup heats live on RPGTV
Greyhound punters are in for a treat this evening with the start of the Coronation Cup at Romford live on Racing Post Greyhound TV – a cracking start 2015!!
The first heat at 7.46 is very competitive with Essex Vase winner Adoremus in T6, Champion Stakes winner Millwards Master in T4 and course and distance specialist BLONDE RAZOR in T1, our selection based on the plot draw on the rails is the Mark Wallis trained Blonde Razor.
The last couple of runs over c&d have been very impressive and if holding the rails pitch into the first corner he will prove very difficult to beat.
ROXHOLME KID (T1) is a very interesting runner in the 8.18 heat number three, the recent recruit from Ireland has been running over four bend trips and now steps upto six bends for the first time, the son of Hades Rocket shows blistering early pace and if he gets on the bunny it’s catch me if you can. Janoan (T5) and Kakantu (T6) are both capable sorts and have chances if leading out wide.
FIVESTAR CLIPPER (T6) can make all in the 8.34 – Derek Knights Hove raider has been competing against the likes of Adageo Bob and Airport Captain lately so will appreciate this slight drop in class. Key to the race is clearing Droopys Bear (T5) at trap rise and leading the wide runners. Droopys Ultana (T1) has been running well around Hove recently and rates as the main danger, especially if that rival manages to hold the rails.
LONGRANGE DENNIS (T1) is a capable sort and ran well during the Champion Stakes back in September and has a cracking chance here if holding the rails around the first couple of bends – the Hove trained greyhound has a nice draw to work from with an inconsistent trapper on his immediate outside and a middle runner in T3. Hometown day (T4) is running very well at the moment and has a chance with a ping break.
Over at Sunderland the best bet on the card is CAIN in the 9.48 A3 graded race – the early paced type looks the likely leader and could prove very difficult to catch. Kilara Vicky (T2) is an interesting runner and could be the danger.
Moving onto Saturday and its Crayford and Newcastle live on RPGTV
TWILIGHT RAIN (T2) could prove very difficult to beat if the youngster stays the six bend 540 meter trip. The son of Vans Escalade has only raced six times since moving over from Ireland but has never been over a trip this far – however, the running style suggests it will suit and Julie Luckhurst could have a decent six bend open racer on her hands.
Over at Newcastle it’s an all graded card, with the highlight been the four A1 races from 9.48 onwards.
The best bet on the card is VALENTIA FROSTY (T3) in the 9.48, likely to lead round the lightly raced middle seed should make all. Scotswood Road (T6) stays very well and could be the danger.
Good luck if you are having a bet this weekend – as ever you can back all these selection over on our daily greyhound betting hub.
