1.31pm Crayford Race Preview 28/08/2018

Crayford Greyhound Racing

Jacobs Fire is the only runner of the day at Crayford for the myracing.com Greyhound Syndicate. She led them a merry dance last week but inexperience got the better of her that day. Let’s take a look at her chances of landing an S4 this week.

Tuesday’s preview comes from one of our syndicate managers, David Mitchell.

Tuesday’s Syndicate Runner

Trap 4 Jacobs Fire – She’s a classy pup and we think a lot of her at this stage of he career. She’s bred to be exciting out of the Oaks winner Silverview Perky. We always thought she’d stay a trip and we were keen to give her this proper test at an early point in he career. Last week she left them for dead but looked green out in-front, she was eventually beaten into second. With that under her belt we know she can go one better and if she can be a bit more ‘street-wise’ she could have a cracking chance in this race.

Tuesday’s Opponents

Trap 1 Llewin Forbryn – Looks set to throw down a challenge after victory last week. That came in an S5 and she’ll need to take another step forward in this race. She’s a relative newcomer to the 540 trip so there could be plenty of improvement to come. She has loads of early pace and we’d imagine connections will feel this dog has a great chance.

Trap 2 Lefanata Acer – Reached a decent level in Ireland and was probably expected to achieve more at Crayford. Even though he hasn’t reached those heights yet he does have a victory on his card around here. He’s been given a chance with a drop in grade and if he could clear T1 he would have a live chance in this race.

Trap 3 Firminos Class – Not sure we agree with the name but this dog does have a touch class. Like our own Jacobs Fire this dog is just a puppy and is still a working progress. Trialed well over this trip but probably lacks the experience to make a dent in some of the big boys in this field. He’s a dog to watch closely but this might be just a touch soon.

Trap 5 Rouge Raptor – Always seems to run her race here and that has resulted in a place effort in her last 7 outings. Seen more recently over the 380 trip but she certainly gets the 6 bends at Crayford. She has decent consistent early and if she could get clear off the front she’d be tough to peg back. Chance.

Trap 6 Lisnakill Andy – Ran down Jacobs Fire last week but looked beaten for a long way. We’re confident that Fire can turn the tables on this dog. We can’t take away the victory though and he does have a chance. Don’t be expecting early fireworks but he will be staying late to the line.

On paper this doesn’t look the easiest of races for Jacobs Fire but she does have a chance. If she was to take this it would be a decent feather in her cap. With her being so young we just want to see her take another step forward and return home safely.
