Greyhound Betting Preview: Tango set to waltz home at Wimbledon

The semi-finals of the William Hill St Leger takes centre stage on a cracking card at Wimbledon tonight (Live on Racing Post Greyhound TV, Sky 212) and Farloe Tango looks a gift at 4/5 in the first at 7.54pm.

Charlie Lister’s dog is a real superstar who has done nothing but impress throughout this competition.

He put in an awesome display when powering home to destroy the top class Droopys Posh by 4 1/4 lengths in the first round and then put in a similar performance in the quarter-finals when overcoming crowding at the first bend to slam Killieford Khali by 7 lengths in a time of 41.65.

The son of Hondo Black, who is drawn in 2,  is likely to get led to the first by Blonde Razor on his inside, but he should be able to get a nice pitch behind Mark Wallis’ runner and it will then be a case of him kicking in the turbo down the back straight and making his awaeosme class tell.

I think he is a good thing to win this outright and can see him going off far shorter than the standout 4/5 avaliable for this with bet365 as the big hitters get stuck in so the advice is to snap it up.

The second semi at 8.10pm looks a match on paper between Trap 2 Droopys Posh and Trap 3 Fear Emoski and at the odds on offer the former looks good value at 9/4 to come out on top.

Seamus Cahill’s bitch is progressing with every run and ran a stormer in the first round when producing a blistering 16.48 sectional to blast clear of the field before being picked up on the run-in and beaten 4 1/4 lenhths by Farloe Tango.

It was a superb effort againt a monster of a dog, and she backed that up with a game win over Musical Gaga in the quarter-finals where she wasn’t the quickest away but stayed on well to win by 1 3/4 lengths.

That win suggested to me that she was getting stronger with each race, and in both those perfromances she clocked a time of 42.07 – a length quicker than the best achieved by her arch rival Emoski.

She also looks well drawn on in inside of Charlie Lister’s bitch and should have little difficulty clearing Aayamzabella in Trap 1.

That should enable her to lead at the first if producing her best break, and she is then going to prove very hard to peg back.

Elshwere on the card, I think that Trap 5 Chicago is worth a punt at the 7/2 on offer about him in the third semi-fianl of the RFS Puppy Derby at 8.58pm.

The son of Mildean Panther had some useful form to his name in Ireland and produced an impressive display when winning on his debut for Seamus Cahill in the previous round.

He stepped up significantly on the sectionals he had produced in his trial runs to post a 4.75 from the boxes to ping clear and lead all the way to beat King Kane by 4 1/2 lengths in a time of 28.62 in the style of a really exciting prospect and looks the type who is open to bags more improvement.

His winning time, and sectional, where almost identical to Blackstone Marco who heads the market for this and I alos think that he has a better draw than the jolly who has a speedy sort in Trap 1 to overcome if he is to bag the rails.

If there is any jostling on the inside then the selection looks nicely housed to take advantage, and I think he should be around a 5/2 shot for this so the 7/2 on offer looks good value in my book.
