12.36pm Crayford Race Preview 17/08/2018

Crayford Greyhound Racing

Only one runner on the card today for the myracing.com Greyhound Syndicate. Droopys Nuka looks to rekindle the form that seen her lift a trophy on our sponsored night at Crayford a few weeks ago.

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

Today’s Syndicate Runner

Trap 6 Droopys Nuka – Nuka has been in excellent form as of late which seen her win twice within 11 days. She got it completely wrong last week which resulted in a bumpy ride around the first couple of bends and as we know by now if you miss it at Crayford, you’re in for a bumpy ride. If we go back to August 4th, she produced arguably her best effort to date winning in a time of 23.79. If she could reproduce that effort today then she’d have a huge say in the outcome of this race.

Today’s Opponents

Trap 1 Match Up Ivy – Has found things tough lately and is in desperate need of a drop in grade. With no win in 5 attempts at this level she’ll want some of these to drastically under-perform. She hasn’t been at Crayford very long after arriving from Limerick in early May and it’s that inexperience that has caught her out. For us we’d be avoiding her until she dropped to possible an A5/A6 race.

Trap 2 Coconutcamoflage – Young dog that has show enough in a string of trials to think he’ll be a decent dog at Crayford. From past experience we know that dogs come on a great deal from their first introduction. He has a nice bit of early but not blistering, if he were to really bang the lids he could run a good race. We’d be wanting to watch this dog on debut, see how he handles the sharp bends with a view to follow him in the future.

Trap 3 Amazing Prince – Hit the ground running at Crayford since his transfer from Harlow in mid-June. Thought good enough to compete at open level there where he finished 3rd in what looked a weak race on paper. He’s done really well at Crayford so far winning 2 graded races in 6 starts. His progression was stopped quickly last week when he was found wanting at the boxes. If he were to get a level break and a bit of luck he could land a blow on these here.

Trap 4 Tri Ath Lottie – Back with a bang last week, producing her best time for a long while. She has decent early for this level and looks a bitch to follow closely. Her only negative would be her results at this level, she’s had 6 cracks at an A4 without victory. If she were to reproduce last weeks effort she would surely have a chance. If our dog Nuka is gonna win this then she must get first run on this dog.

Trap 5 Madabout Dot – This dog is not to be taken lightly on debut. The grader has certainly given her a chance after winning a trial in a time of 23.78 . The clock is not the only impressive thing about her trial, her improvement in all of her trials has to be noted. She’s improved by over 4 lengths with each look around here and if she were to improve another 4 lengths today that would take put her around 23.46. That time is enough to compete at a much higher level but as we know trials are not the real thing. On what we have to go on, she’s a player here.

We have the full racecard for this and the rest of Crayford today. Looking into the future we have Droopys Hyde returning to 6 bends, Jacobs Fire continuing her progression and the star that is Meenagh Mourniho coming back from injury to stake his claim at still being the top dog around Crayford.
