Two dogs that could dethrone stuttering Dorotas with Greyhound Derby heats on the horizon
The incumbent champ is the noticeable starting factor in the 2019 Greyhound Derby wagering as Dorotas Wildcat (12/1) bids to become the initial back-to-back winner given that the epic Westmead Hawk did the service in 2005 and also 2006.
The Derby has a brand-new residence in 2019, with the race established to be held at Nottingham for the very first time. The East Midlands location has already been a pleased hunting ground for the Wildcat, that controlled the Eclipse below winning his heat and also the semi prior to dominating in the final to back up his Derby win.
That got the pulses competing as the opportunity of another back-to-back champion seemed closer to coming true, but 2019 has not gone to strategy.
His shock loss up in arms of 1/5 in a warm for the Winter Derby at Hove toughened up excitement as he completed rock last down on the south coast and followed that with an additional frustrating initiative, when just completing second in a minor open race at Swindon behind a pup, Kingsbrook Glyn (100/1).
That's left worries surrounding the reigning champion, but he threatens to discount rate at a track where he has actually run well in the past.
With the very first heats up for the large one simply nearby, a pair of rivals stick out in the existing Greyhound Derby 2019 betting
. Droopys Verve (16/1) may prepare to get out of Dorotas Wildcat's darkness.
The bridesmaid to Dorotas Wildcat in 2014's Derby and afterwards once more in the Eclipse– he sought to have every chance to win the Scottish Derby at Shawfield in very early May having actually won his heat and the semi, however blew the begin in the last and also could not recuperate.
Droopy's Verve (orange jacket in headline image) remained on strongly to get hold of 3rd that day and with concern marks around the reigning champ, he can be keyed to ultimately obtain the much better of his old adversary. It's no surprise to see last year's 1-2 head the market again.
Irish eyes can be grinning again
Paul Hennessy sent out Jaytee Jet to win the Derby for Ireland in 2016 and also among this year's Irish raiders Clonbrien Swift (25/1) has caught the eye in trials.
Typically a path blazer when running in Ireland, he melted his rivals off in a number of A1 races at Clonmel before heading to Nottingham for a pair of Derby test stakes over the last number of weeks.
Clonbrien Swift made a winning beginning to racing in the UK, landing his first race by a length as well as putting in a below 30 2nd time in the process.
He was just second next time around, however looks a greyhound who will be suited to the rigours of the Derby, if able to avoid the crowding which probably did for his chances last time out.
He's a precise player in this area as well as it's intriguing that the layers are taking no possibilities.
