Boyneside Banty Wins On Wimbledon Derby Finals Night at 12/1

Absolutely amazing!

I can hardly believe I am saying it but Boyneside Banty won the opening race on William Hill Greyhound Derby Finals night for Viking Racing, landing the sprint, on his first ever run at Wimbledon! He opened 8-1 and went out to 12-1, unfancied BUT NOT BY US!

Boyneside Banty Wins at Wimbledon on Greyhound Derby Finals Night 2012

Banty flew the traps and took a bump on the final bend, but battled back to win a head, in a decent time. It was absolutely amazing and a great way to start Derby finals night.

Banty was advised as a bet to Viking Racing members, here is what we told them;

18:55 Wimbledon Trap 6 BOYNESIDE BANTY
This is a heart bet rather than an objective look at the card, he hasn’t run at Wimbledon BUT the wide box may suit him. Certainly has a chance. How good would it be to open up the night with Banty winning!

It certainly was; this is what the Racing Post reported;

6.55: William Hill Sprint (Div B)
12-1 outsider Boyneside Banty, trained by Jim Hayton at Doncaster, runs on well to catch 8-1 chance Dooey Royal by a head in 16.39sec.

Get In.

The Derby was a great occasion and to be part of it was brilliant! We have a taste for it now, that is for sure and we will be looking for more success at Wimbledon. I have ordered the DVD of the race and some superb action shots of Banty will be coming, will post on the website.

WIMBLEDON….

Greyhound Derby at Wimbledon

 Down the Card….Wimbledon….

18:55 Trap 6 BOYNESIDE BANTY

This is a heart bet rather than an objective look at the card, he hasn’t run at Wimbledon BUT the wide box may suit him. Certainly has a chance. How good would it be to open up the night with Banty winning!

19:15 Trap 6 SILVERVIEW PERKY- MAX BET
This is the Oaks winner and she has bags of class! Ideal draw, got through a few rounds of the Derby.

19:35 No Bet here, looks a lottery

19:50 Trap 1 YOUNG SID
Class act, has some amazing times round Wimbledon. Knocked out in quarter final of the Derby. Still more than good enough to romp home here.

SKYSPORTS BEHIND RED BUTTON…

20:05 Trap 4 FARLOE WARHAWK MAX BET
This is a showdown with Jordan’s Chris. Farloe Warhawk didn’t run as fast a trial as Lister’s runner. BUT as happened at Shawfield he improves for second run round and can win from the front.

TV RACES…

20:25 Trap 6 SKYWALKERSHEARER
Beat Romeo Patrol last time which is fine form. A repeat of that should see The Cahill runner home and hosed. No Drama.

20:45 Trap 1 JIMMY LOLLIE MAX BET
It would be quite an emotional sight to see Jimmy Lollie win at Wimbledon. Had retired and came back and is at the top of his game. Should win again!

21:05 Trap 1 OLIVERS TWIST
Hurdles, not my thing, but the best form is with the one dog.

21:25 Trap 6 FREDS CHAMP
Looks thrown in.  Has the best form and should win here.

21:45 Trap 6 BUBBLY PHEONIX
Was unlucky in the Derby, a young dog, will be back next year for a crack at the Derby. Is the fastest dog in the race, clear run, Good Night Vienna.

22:05 Trap 2 MAUDABAWN JENNY
Will be miles behind early but watch her come late, will it be in time, I think so, but will be exciting!

Coolavanney Bert for the Greyhound Derby

The big one….

22:35 Trap 2 COOLAVANNY BERT MAX BET
Already advised and backed at 33/1, can he do it, can he bring home the bacon, YES he can, Go BERT!

I have never been to Wimbledon, let alone the Greyhound Derby! I have backed Coolavanny Bert and indeed advised him ante-post to Viking Racing members. The key here is the break, if he breaks he has a huge chance! I believe he will in it, and to be there to watch it will be great!

Would I take Banty winning over Bert….YES I WOULD, Every time!

Come On Coolavanny Bert

Greyhound Derby Final Saturday, I backed and advised Coolavanny Bert at 33/1

Not a bad bet!

In the two box he has a big chance, if he breaks out and leads be all over! I will be there to see it live, but you can watch it live on Saturday evening on Sky Sports.

Should be very good!

33/1 Coolavanney Bert On Course To Land Greyhound Derby

Coolavanney Bert qualified for the Greyhound Derby Final as Favourite JFK tumbles out! We advised Coolavanney Bert as an Ante-Post Bet for the Greyhound Derby when 33/1

Taylors Sky also qualified and I genuinely believe he is the main danger to Bert! The King will not give up his crown easily!

The final is next Saturday, from Wimbledon and will be Live on Sky Sports.
