Droopys Nuka kicks off Tuesday for the myracing.com Greyhound Syndicate at Crayford. She’s looking to to get back on track today after some lacklustre efforts recently. Let’s take a closer look at her chances of winning this trappy looking A5 contest.
Today’s preview comes from one of our syndicate managers, David Mitchell.
Droopys Nuka – Nuka turned in a better effort last time out which seen her run into a place. This is still way below her best and a return to T5 would be a negative for us. Her record from this box is really poor and with in-form dogs surrounding her she’ll need to produce an outstanding effort to get involved. We know she’s better than this but we can’t get away from the negatives and for us we’ll be happy with a clear run today.
Pesky Tess – Tried a number of distances in her time at Crayford and is arguably a much better stayer than this sharp 4 bend trip. Saying that she turned in a great effort at the end of August to shock connections winning a race of this nature but the cards did fall in her favour that day. She looked out of her depth last time out with an upgrade and today she looks up against it again.
Do Your Bit – Not a great record in this grade and his lack of early pace is causing trouble in every race he’s competing in at present. He has a nice draw to operate from but with his recent efforts sill fresh in the memory we just can’t see him landing a blow against some of these today.
Bullseye Destiny – Red hot at the minute turning in two excellent performances for the Tom Levers team. She does have her limitations but her all round consistency is very good for a dog at this level. If she can produce a break like last week she’ll surely be in the firing line at they head towards the line.
Special Fli – We’ve commented before about this dog’s lack of early pace and it looks like the same old story today. She turned in an improved effort last time out but still she race into problems early doors which cost her the race. If she was to get clear she could take this but you’re hoping for her to get the splits if they come.
Woof A Rhythm – Young dog with still plenty of miles left on the clock. He was competing at a higher level to this early on but his form tailed off a little bit through the summer months. His most recent run was a step in the right direction and a repeat of that would see him go close.
Nuka has never been a dog to trust from T5 and for that reason alone most would write her off. Her last run was better but still way below what we expect from her. T3 and T6 look to both have decent chances in this with T4 desperately looking for a clear run. It looks a messy race with the victor most likely quickening clear off the front.
