British Performance Of The Week – Week 6, 2024

A highlight of the Ladbrokes Winter Derby heats at Monmore on Saturday was the KSS cousins securing a treble. The fastest among them was Queen Joni, clocking a time of 28.36 (-20). With 11 wins in 15 races, including two Category One titles, Queen Joni's performance is particularly noteworthy, especially considering she is only two years old as of December.

In Doncaster, three Yorkshire-born littermates from Kevin Ferguson had notable successes. Acomb Johnny posted a time of 27.76 (-10) for the 450m, and Acomb Felix recorded a time of 16.84 (-05) for the sprint, slightly slower than last week but retaining his defending champ title.

Oxford's Rioja Maxi showcased an impressive performance, improving by six spots from last week's open race win. Additionally, Sleek By Design, a veteran, demonstrated remarkable resilience, finishing only three-quarters of a length behind in a race that wasn't ideal for her.

Greenwell Ovett, a British-bred greyhound, stood out among the ARC Northern Puppy Derby heat winners, showing promise in his racing debut despite giving away four months in age.

Noteworthy performances also came from June youngster Sleepy Millie, who dominated a Sunderland A3 field in 27.18 on Friday, and Sean White's Broadway Murty, winning the fastest heat of the Northamptonshire Sprint.

Breaking the sprint clock for the second time this year at Suffolk Downs, Kyprios set a new record with a time of 13.39, three spots quicker than the previous best by Yahoo Megan.

Garfiney Blaze, a recent Cesarewitch winner, secured a fourth consecutive victory at Hove's 695m course, posting a respectable time of 41.88 despite the track running -15. Another mention goes to Rioja Woody, a 29.27 winner in the Rees race.

Preparing for a second Golden Jacket campaign, Coonough Crow clocked 44.83, indicating a successful preparation for this year's competition.

A standout run came from Chiltern Sunny at Harlow, recording the fastest sprint in the last three years with a time of 14.87.

In Yarmouth, Swift Ian emerged victorious with a 27.73 run in the top A1 race, while at Perry Barr, Good Spark trumped the competition with a 28.38 time.

Caydans Destiny impressed at Kinsley with the week's sole sub-28.00 run in the A3 category.

Gurtnacrehy Axel secured a notable win at Pelaw, clocking 25.69 in an A2 heat.

At Swindon, Ballymac Rocky stood out among minor opens with a 28.43 run, marking his fourth win in the last six outings.

Glenmalure Flyer's unbeaten streak at Valley extended to ten, winning by a neck in the closest race of the week.

Bitumen continued his remarkable winning sequence at Nottingham, triumphing by eight lengths in 29.80, making it eight consecutive wins.

Asbo Lenny, Paul Donovan's Kent Derby finalist, secured his fifth win from his last six races over course and distance at Central Park.

At Romford, Druids Say Go justified her skinny SP (1-6f) with the quickest 400m open time of 23.76 (-10).

In Sheffield, Team Draper's Timmys Penny was the fastest among a 500m treble, clocking 28.99. In the stayers opens, Doncaster raider Trewmount Fury stood out, securing a thrilling sh, sh photo finish victory.
