Greyhounds preview - July 29

  • Last Updated: July 29 2014, 9:34 BST

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

BAGS BEST BET: Southern Mesut (T1, 7.49 Hove)

TODAY'S NAP: Razldazl Butch (T2, 8.04 Hove)

TODAY'S TREBLE: Bubbly Gold (T5, 9.19 Hove)

We're in for a treat this evening with top-class cards at both Hove and Sheffield.

The TV Trophy gets underway at the latter venue and is supported by a an excellent card of opens, but we'll concentrate on the Sussex track where the Coral Sussex final (9.19) features, live on Sky Sports.

£10,000 is up for grabs in the Category One decider and Exocet is a warm favourite to capture the prestigious 515m event after going fastest in the semi-finals with an impressive trap-to-liner.

However, he hasn't been too reliable at the lid-rise this year and given that was only his second victory of 2014, a good case can be made for taking him on at the prices.

There is plenty of pace inside courtesy of Forest Gavin, Sidaz Pedro, Cathys Clown and Jaytee Lightning and it could be set up for a strong sort, namely Bubbly Gold (T5).

Runner-up in the Grand Prix over 640m at Sunderland earlier this month, Paul Young's representative was denied in a head-bobber by Cathys Clown in the semis and can turn in a decent enough pitch by tucking in behind the early birds.

With a calculated 29.61 on his card over this C&D last month, the 9/2 available looks very generous.

There are also three £2,5000 finals on an excellent card and Southern Mesut (T1) is fancied to make the most of a nice make-up in the Coral Sprint Trophy decider at 7.49.

Fresh from chasing home Mileheight Alba in the William Hill Classic at Sunderland and landing a red-hot sprint at Nottingham, Charlie Lister's speedster continued his fine form when landing his heat in good style on Thursday.

Sporting red again tonight, he should get plenty of room with Wee Tiger Tots likely to be moving right from trap two and his inside berth can help him turn in front.

The Jimmy Jupp National Hurdle (8.04) ensures that lovers of the jumps game are catered for and Razldazl Butch (T2) should be well suited by the testing nature of this 515m course.

The Springbok finalist arrives on the back of a double at Crayford and was particularly impressive over the 540m trip at the Kent venue, so is expected to see out this trip better than most and the long run to the first bend can allow him to show his good early pace.
