Greyhounds preview - July 17

  • Last Updated: July 17 2014, 10:04 BST

We run the rule over Thursday's greyhounds meetings and pick out our best bets for the action.

BAGS BEST BET: Droopys Norris (T3, 8.50 Hove)

TODAY’S NAP: Underground Paul (T3, 8.34 Hove)

TODAY’S TREBLE: Farley Champ (T5, 9.06 Hove)

Heats for the £10,000 Coral Sussex Cup take centre stage at Hove this evening, live on RPGTV, and we're treated to a real feast.

Underground Paul (T3), the ante-post favourite for this year's renewal of the Category One, can lay down his credentials in the third instalment at 8.34.

Paul Young's June 2011 dog is beginning to realise his full potential in a career that has been plagued by injuries and he completed his course-and-distance hat-trick with a rapid trap-to-liner (29.64 calculated) last week.

The son of Ace Hi Rumble is a credit to all connected and should have enough pace to clear the progressive Sidaz Pedro to the corner tonight.

Droopys Norris (T3), the William Hill Derby Plate hero, has caught the eye in recent trial sessions and a big run is expected from Dean Childs' ace in the fourth heat at 8.50.

An emphatic success on Derby final night at Wimbledon may just have been the making of this greyhound by Droopys Scolari and Droopys Lotto and, with two less-reliable trappers drawn on his inside tonight, the April 2012 whelp should get a clear run and he stays this testing four-bend trip better than most.

We also fancy Farley Champ (T5) to go well in the fifth heat at 9.06.

Heather Dimmock's charge seems to prefer breaking from a middle berth and shouldn't be inconvenienced by trap five. He confirmed his current well-being when making all to beat the reopposing Benkaat Nero over track and trip seven days ago and he's fancied to show big pace on the run-up before cutting in at the bend.
