It’s been a quieter period for the myracing greyhound syndicate in recent weeks, but it is bubbling back to a head once more as we look towards the autumn with two more additions to the team. Our greyhound tips go live by 6 p.m every day with runner by runner previews for every race featuring one of our syndicate racers.
Nuka had a short break just to recharge her batteries having got knocked over. She trialled back well and was back in competitive action on the 29th of August, unable to cope with the pace of the winner, she ran well despite not coming away in her best fashion. We know she is well capable of winning an A4 when she puts it all together, with a run into the 23.60’s likely to come as a consequence when she does click it all into one performance.
Nothing much to report for Dazzle, she is currently 6 weeks into her seasonal rest period so should be looking to get back on the track with a trial in another 5/6 weeks. She will have a couple of spins over the 380 trip before we step her up to 540m where we think she is going to be better than grade 4 where she currently resides over 380.
Having been knocked over twice in back to back trips to the track, a move to a middle trap appeared to do Hyde the power of good in trials, clocking his quickest time of 23.86. He couldn’t back that up under race conditions however, once more checking out of things when getting to the first bend, lucky to stay on his feet. As a result of this we are going to give him a look at Henlow, a track with more sweeping curves as it’s clear that Crayford doesn’t suit him. There is no point constantly trying to bang a square peg into a round hole running the risk of injuring either himself or another hound.
A new addition to the ranks from the Irish sprinting scene, he has recently won a pair of sprints at Drumbo in decent times of 18.10 and 18.12. He has smart trapping ability and paces to the bend well so he looks a perfect dog not just for Crayford, but for the odd foray into the open race sprinting scene in time. He stopped the clock at a smart 23.70 (+10) on his very first look at the track, an excellent effort given how different a shape it is from anything he will have seen in Ireland. We are looking forward to getting him graded on and seeing him in action at our next syndicate night at Crayford on October 7th, where we are sponsoring the majority of the card.
Un-named right now as she is only an October ’16 whelp, we are toying with the idea of running a competition for her naming rights for charity. Nothing has been finalised as of yet but watch this space! By Irish St Leger winner Farley Turbo, out of English Oaks heroine Silverview Perky, she has a smart pedigree to live up to. Perky is yet to throw anything close to her own ability, though there are a January ’16 litter at Henlow who have shown a few bits of promise who are worth keeping an eye on. Perky’s litter sister Silverview Pinky has a March ’16 Farley Turbo litter who are just starting to hit the track at Henlow so we will be tracking their progress with interest.
