The second of the two myracing greyhound syndicate runners tonight is Droopys Nuka, on the hunt for a hat-trick of wins. Our greyhound tips will be up later on this afternoon, currently £784 in front in July to tracked stakes! Let’s take a look at Nuka’s race.
9.40pm Crayford 22nd July A4 Grade
Vintage Queen – This is as high up the grades as she has been here, getting up on the line in an A5 at the end of June to score by a short head. She stays further than this so is likely to be doing her best work late, but she shouldn’t have enough zip to the third bend to live with a couple of these.
Sailaway Foxy – A perfect 2/2 at the track, sent off favourite in his A6 and A5 so far. He has led at the first bend both times but without clocking exceptional sectionals. His winning times are not good enough to win this, but he is improving with each look at the track so if leading up the inside, should be in the tricast mix.
Call A Copper – Very inconsistent at the traps, winning an A5 in fine fashion last month, clocking a slick 23.62 in the process. On that form she is the one to beat in the field, but only 3 times in 19 races has she shown sub 3.65 early pace and with the 2 going to the bend strongly on her inside, that could spell trouble for her.
Glenrock Dazzle – Seen over hurdles more than on the flat of late, he is a slick starter. He was an A3 winner back in February, so he is more than capable of giving this field a lesson from the front, more often than not however, he finds a way down the back to allow others back into the race, a strong chance if he can stay focused, but that is a huge if!
Coolruss Geoff – Only had a pair of starts here, winning well in A5 on his debut. He has been sent off favourite in both of those contests, clocking a smart 23.71. He is lightly raced and given his early pace, he could well cause Nuka a few problems on the run to the corner. He looks a big player on what little we know about him so far.
Droopys Nuka – Arrives in great heart having won A6 and A5 back to back, taking her to 3/6 in the early days of her career. She is showing consistent early pace, a trait that will stand her in good stead at the track and she sports her favoured jacket. This is naturally going to be more difficult, especially with the early pace of 4 and 5 inside, but she stuck her head down and dug deep to beat a bitch last week who had been runner up in an open sprint, so is starting to show her class.
A tricky race for Nuka, but that will happen more and more often as she climbs the grades. Her best 3.55 and 23.75 time would see her go close so she is certainly one for the forecast/tricast mix. Whether she has enough boot to clear the early pace in 4 and 5 inside her, we will find out. She lacks nothing for heart and it is going to be a good test of her ability with her confidence sky high. 4 isn’t one to trust implicitly and 5 is going to have to trap clever between two slick starters, Whoever makes the corner from 2 and 3 perhaps then is the biggest danger.
