British Performance Of The Week – Week 7, 2024

Despite Coonough Crow's impressive performance as the fastest in the Golden Jacket first round, kennelmate Minnie Bullet stole the spotlight in the Bussey Memorial heats. Minnie, who finished fourth in the previous year's Jacket, showcased her suitability for six bends, equalling Antigua Sugar's fastest time of the year 2023.

However, MWD kennel's even-money favourite, Quarteira, faced challenges in the Northamptonshire Sprint Final. Broadway Murty, the defending POW champion, clocked an impressive 15.50 in the final, proving punters might have underestimated him once again.

King Capaldi, with 14 wins from 17 races, demonstrated exceptional speed in the Winter Derby semis at Monmore. Despite the challenge of a less favorable draw in trap five, King Capaldi's 28.01 was the fastest among three outstanding performances.

While Tom Heilbron's Bogger Rambo and Links Maverick secured the other two Monmore semis, kennelmate Romeo To Victory produced an outstanding run at Sheffield, clocking 15.74 for the 280m.

Droopys Display, owned by Maxine Locke, showcased promise as a pup, finishing only six spots slower than the marginally quicker Omuircheartaigh in the Northern Puppy Derby semi-final.

At Oxford, Kevin Hutton's young talents, Rioja Oisin and Union Rebel, both secured wins, but Sleek By Design stole the show with the fastest 650 win of the year, clocking 39.36.

Phil Milner's home-bred pup, Keefil Goose, demonstrated notable progress, finishing only three spots off the fastest 450 of the year at Doncaster.

Deelish Lucy, experiencing a resurgence at Kinsley, clocked the only sub-28.00 run, securing five wins and two seconds in her last eight races.

Garfiney Blaze's impressive seven-length win over stayers at Hove extended the MWD Syndicate's winning streak to 5:5.

Gagas Merry's winning time at Swindon (43.44) may be disregarded due to track conditions, but it marked her fourth win in the last six races.

Despite Jura Kaneco clocking the fastest time at Harlow, Good Streak's claim cannot be ignored, winning with a time of 26.56 (-10).

Sambar Kian emerged victorious in a closely contested Cat 3 final, defeating the Nottingham eight-timer Bitumen.

Supa Nova outshone Druids Say Go at Romford, clocking an impressive 23.82 on -20 going.

Smores delivered an unexpected performance at Caister, clocking 27.43 (N) for 462 metres, a significant improvement from previous runs.

Asbo Lenny's recent success at Central Park continued, although he fell short against Singalong Stacey's 29.59 (-10) win.

Suffolk Down's absence led to Liam Jezabelle's A2 win at 23.72, the highlight of the week.

Darley Diglake secured his first open race victory at Perry Barr, following up on his A1 success.

The 24.8kg Sunderland pup, Roaming Roxy, clocked 27.48, the fastest time over the standard distance on a challenging week weatherwise.

Quare Doll, once struggling in Perry Barr, turned her fortunes around at Valley, winning her last five races and setting a sprint record (15.95).
