Greyhound Betting Preview: Soks ready to Rok at Wimbledon

A superb card featuring the heats of the William Hill St Leger on Racing Post Greyhound TV (Sky 212) tonight, and there are three dogs that look value from a punting perspective.

In Heat 1 (7.29) I think Trap 2 Midway Nick who looks decent value at 7/2 against the red-hot jolly Calzaghe Lilly.

The son of Premier Fantasy is a useful sort when getting loose on the front, as she showed when beating Freedom Cache at Coventry back in August.

He was also chased home Farloe Tango on two occasions, and with Traps 1 and 3 looking short of early pace there is every chance he could boss the inside and lead at the first bend.

If he does then he could prove tough to peg back and Calzaghe Lilly has a pacey sort on his inside and may well have to overcome trouble if he is to land the odds.

There is no doubt that Ted Soppitt’s bitch  is a class act, but this is her first look round Wimbledon at at odds-on I think he looks worth taking on.

Heat 4 (8.10) doesn’t look the strongest and Trap 6 Freedom Reno looks worth siding with at 4/1.

Jamie Hurst’s dog has been keeping good company on his travels away from his Kinsley base and finished an excellent third to Hather George when last seen in action at Sheffield.

He held every chance that day before being beaten just 1 1/2 lengths, and it was a smart effort against a classy sort who won the 3 Steps To Victory and is as short as 10/1 with Ladbrokes in the outright betting for this competition.

To me that looks some of the strongest form on offer in the line-up and a repeat may well see him come out on top at what looks a big price.

In Heat 8,  I am all over Trap 6 White Soks Roks who looks plotted up in the stripes and rates the standout bet on the card at 2/1.

Danny Riordan’s dog is a real class act as he showed when winning the Ladbrokes Golden Jacket earlier in the year where he showed bags of early pace to lead throughout and slam Droopy’s Xavier by 3 1/4 lengths.

If he pings in this thne he could be away and gone, and even if he turns handy to the jolly Moody Paul in Trap 3 I think he will prive too strong in the closing stages as his stamina kicks into play.

The fact that he is the sole wide seed in the line-up virtually guarantees him a clear run to the bend, and to me he should be favoruite for this and the 2/1 looks a steal.
