Another trip to Crayford on Saturday night live on RPGTV for the myracing,com greyhound syndicate. Our greyhound tips will be online by 6pm tonight. Let’s take a look at the challenge that’s facing Droopys Nuka tonight.
Vigorous Shannon – Veteran has slipped down the grades quickly having been A1 only three months ago. She has plenty of mid 3.50 sectionals to her credit so despite it being a while since she showed her very best, the grader takes a chance downgrading her.
Pretend Times – Looks unlikely to lead up on the rails. Won an A5 last time out but with a career best of just 23.95, she doesn’t look one of the more likely contenders in this one.
Great Run – Has one flashy trial time on her card when hitting the lids. The majority of her form in Ireland and in limited action here is of a reasonable enough quality to think this is her grade but she needs to control the inside on the run to the bend.
O Leary Tune – Very inconsistent at the lids but he has a smash break in his locker. Struggled a little at this grade so far, so is going to have to take another step forward to land this.
Droopys Nuka – Her record in this grade doesn’t make for happy reading, taking it to 0/8 at the start of the month. 5 has never been her trap although her trapping boots have gone missing from stripes of late as well. Needs to step up on her recent form.
Blundel Sugar – Not beaten far the last time she was in this grade 2 runs ago. She is a regular in the late 3.50’s on the run to the line first time so with Nuka in 5, she has a solid chance of hitting the bend close to the lead. Stays 6 bends well so looks a strong forecast mixer.
Nuka doesn’t have a great draw in 5 and with a pair who can really hit the lids either side of her, this looks a potentially treacherous draw. She has a moderate record in this grade to boot so she looks to face a tough task on the bare face on things in this contest tonight. 1 was much better than this not so long ago, so it would be no surprise to see her feature strongly while 6 stays further so she is a danger to all if she turns handy to the speed.
