1.44pm Crayford Race Preview 08/07/2017

The myracing greyhound syndicate will be pulling double duty at Crayford on Saturday with Droopys Dazzle set to run on the morning BAGS card and Droopys Nuka live on RPGTV in the evening. We will be looking for more luck than we got with Droopys Hyde on Tuesday who went base over apex at the first bend. A check at the vets saw that no damage was done, but he will be having a few weeks off just to ensure that he is ready to go back to action. Our greyhound tips will be up later on today, enjoying a flying start to July.

1.44 pm Crayford 8th July A5 Grade

Newlawn Sandra– Normally seen over a longer trip than this, she stayed on strongly to claim a win in this grade in early June, picking up the 6 dog in the process. That would make her a big player in this race, especially given that she clocked 23.89 that day from behind. She has no great early pace so is always going to need plenty of luck in running, but she is certainly one who Dazzle supporters won’t want to turn too close.

Shacas Beauty – In form hound has notched up wins in both A7 and A6 since returning from injury, using his mass to fight for a position early on the first time before blowing them away when last seen. He was in the mix in this grade back in March so there is no reason to think that he won’t be in the thick of the action once again.

Pure Panther – Shaped with promise in trials both in Ireland and at Crayford before his debut last weekend. That run is best forgotten, giving the field a full twelve lengths out the boxes but that makes him hard to support with any confidence on the back of that brain freeze. He is also running close to five kilos lighter than he was in his Irish trials so his weight needs to be kept an eye on going forward.

Coolruss Josh – Flew out with a 3.59 sectional when landing an A6 in early June, but the majority of the time he is much slower into stride. He paces up well from the line to the bend which makes him dangerous up the inside of Dazzle, especially as it’s 4 he traps better from rather than 3.

Droopys Dazzle – Wasn’t far away from turning right on the speed last Saturday before being turned sideways on the first bend. There was no recovery from that and she came home in last place. She has the pace to the bend to go close to turning on the speed again here and having won her A6 in stunning style, we know what she is capable of when getting on the bunny.

Scarlet Sanyi – Hit the lids flying when winning an A6 two runs ago, doing no favours to Droopys Nuka in the process as he was in stripes, giving her no view of the bunny. That is not his normal early pace however, generally turning closer to last than first, a normal sectional from him should see Dazzle up his inside early and he will find it tough to come from behind her.

Conclusion

Another fascinating race for Dazzle as she looks to progress further up the grades. She is drawn between a pair of inconsistent starters which could be to her benefit, although the 4 does trap better when he is clad in black rather than when he is closer to the inside. Connections of the 1, 2 and 6 are all likely to fancy their chances as well in an open looking contest.  Overall, Dazzle will need one of her better breaks to be win but after just the three runs, there is better to come from her.
