Greyhound Betting Preview: There’s something about Mary

Some cracking Open race action from Romford tonight on Racing Post Greyhound TV (Sky 212) and Desert Mary heads a duo of dogs that look worth a punt.

Martyn Wiley’s bitch  lines up in the Coral On TV Maiden Trophy Final at 9.24 have secured victory in the qualifying round with a lightening fast break.

She flew from Trap 2 and produced a 3.59 sectional to the first bend and beat Droopy Joker, who was drawn in Trap 1, fair and square by a length.

It was an impressive display given that she runs better from Trap 1, and she now gets her ideal pitch in this.

That could well prove decisive, as her opponents in traps 2,3 and 4 all have early pace and like the rails.

It could well be a case of who makes the first bend wins, and if Desert Mary can reproduce her latest sectional of 3.59 it will be her and if there is a coming together on her outside she may well be the one to benefit and hug the rails to scoot clear.

I certainly don’t think that she should be as big as 7/2 and had her priced up at around the 5/2 mark on my tissue.

In the 9.40, Trap 5 Courts Ad Stanley looks ideally drawn and makes plenty of appeal at the 3/1 on offer.

Jim Reynolds’ dog has struck form with a vengeance and overcame a slow start last time out to land the hat-trick in an Open contest here last Saturday in a time of 24.53.

Given that his sectional was a poor 3.73 he did well to come from off the pace and win going away by 2 lengths, and the time he clocked is very similar to the best that Trap 1 Aero Twizzle (24.37) and Trap 2 Nans Turbo (24.44) have produced.

Those pair are also very close matched as regards pace to the early bend, and there is very possibility of them coming together on the inside.

That may well enable Courts Ad Stanly to take advantage out wide, and given that has the fastest winning time to his name in this line-up of 24.29 if he does turn handy or even leads he is likely to be very hard to beat.
