Free tips Greyhound Racing Betting: Donation could be a gift at Hove on Thursday

Sussex Cup Preview (Live on SKY & Betting Shops)

Thursday’s SKY televised greyhound meeting comes from Hove and features the final of the Sussex Cup (at 9.08pm).  

A £10,000 to-the-winner event has been won by some of the sports greats; its impressive roll-of-honour includes Toms The Best who went on to become the first greyhound to win both the English and Irish Greyhound Derbies in 1997/98.

Inaugurated in 1972, 18 of the previous 44 renditions of the Sussex Cup have been won by the favourite and the last decade has seen four winners priced between 8/1 and 10/1.

The 2017 edition has the makings of a classic.  Heading the cast is Barricane Tiger, who will attempt to become the first greyhound to win the race twice. The Patrick Janssens trained greyhound has fared well in the draw, the December ’13 whelp, will wear the red jacket on Thursday.

But the race favourite is ‘Donation’ who blitzed her rivals when winning last Thursday’s semi-final by two-and-three-quarter lengths.  Her winning time was superior to the other two semi-finals by 0.37sec, which equates to almost five-lengths.  Suffice to say, on a strict interpretation of that form, she has the Sussex Cup already won.

With nine UK runs yielding seven wins and a second place, and a four race Irish career netting three consecutive victories of eight lengths of more, this young greyhound trained by Towcester’s Heather Dimmock looks an exceptional prospect and a potential Irish Greyhound Derby candidate.

Although she is as short as 11/8 with Bet365, Ladbrokes are out on a limb with a 2/1 quote which is simply too good miss.

Lay Levi in the Sprint

There’s thee additional competition finals on the Sussex Cup undercard, all are worth £2,500 to the winner.  Romford handler Paul Young is three-handed in the Puppy Trophy (at 7.26pm) and Droopy’s Opah should fare best of his trio.

But puppy races are never a great betting medium and despite this October 2015 whelp looking head and shoulders above his rivals, a lack of experience (he’s a veteran of just four races) means defeat for the even-money favourite would not be a total surprise.

The 7.59pm, a £2,500 sprint final, looks a better betting proposition as it could easily result in carnage.  The 285-metre contest is made up of five wide-seeds and one greyhound classified as a ‘middle’ runner.  Blackstone Levi will therefore start from trap 1 and will consequently start relatively short in the betting (he’s 3/1 in the early tissues).  

However, it must be pointed out the 35-kilo greyhound is the biggest in the field and used to be classified as a wide runner.  Given the race make-up and naïve market support, Blackstone Levi looks an obvious ‘exchange lay’ in a race where all runners could be banjaxed like bowling balls.

The 8.33pm, the Coral Ladies Trophy, looks a trappy affair.  With enough early-pace to lead on the run to the opening bend Greenhill Gem looks to have obvious chances but the Perry Barr raider has a poor record at Hove (one win from seven visits) and she will need a long lead at halfway to have any hope of holding on.

Despite her double-digit price the locally-trained Outlier Maybe could well play a part in the outcome.  Wayne Wrighting’s bitch does not know how to run a bad race (as underlined by 13 wins and 15 seconds from a 59 race career) and she can be the one to benefit from any trouble amongst the inside runners which is entirely possible.

Recommended Greyhounds Bets:

  • 9.08 Hove (Sussex Cup) Donation (Trap 5) – 2/1 Ladbrokes

  • 8.33 Hove (Ladies Trophy) Outlier Maybe (Trap 5) – 12/1 Coral

  • 7.59 Hove (Sprint Final) Blackstone Levi (Trap 1) Lay on Betfair circa 7/2 (4.50)
