Thursday Round Up - March 14, 2024

TV families

As of the latest update, no bookmaking firm had ventured to offer odds for Saturday’s Stadium Bookmakers TV Trophy heats at Oxford.

One certainty is that the Mark Wallis-trained MWD-owned littermates Garfiney Blaze and Ballymac Taylor will likely feature prominently in the ante-post betting. So, what are the trainer's thoughts on the upcoming contest?

The TV Trophy heats will be complemented by nine additional open races, with the star attraction being Greyhound of the Year Droopys Clue participating in a 650m contest.

Yarmouth graded racing at its best!

Will there be an A1 event this week that can rival the top heat from Yarmouth on Wednesday?

The lineup featured Wrighty (RU Juvenile Classic/Gymcrack), Roxys Bullet (Essex Vase), Ballyard Shawny (3rd Silver Salver, 4th Bedfordshire Sprint), Smores (BRT 27.43), Alberts Legacy (PB 27.56), and Inflation (BRT 27.71). All six are winners of open races.

Despite being the 9/4 favourite, Wrighty was narrowly beaten by 5/1 shot Ballyard Shawny.

Coventry housing plan quashed

Plans to demolish Coventry Stadium and replace it with housing seem to have been halted after owners Brandon Estates decided not to appeal a decision refusing planning permission by Rugby Council.

Greyhound racing ceased at the stadium for the final time in 2016. Since then, the site has suffered vandalism and significant damage from a fire, suspected to be arson, two years ago.
