Greyhounds preview - August 12

  • Last Updated: August 12 2014, 10:37 BST

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

BAGS BEST BET: Vatican Boo Boo (T1, 8.22 Nottingham)

TODAY’S NAP: Newinn Yolo (T2, 8.51 Nottingham)

TODAY’S TREBLE: Swift Hoffman (T6, 9.07 Nottingham)

The £7,500 Caffreys Puppy Classic gets underway at Nottingham this evening with six heats and Pat Rosney could be in for a profitable meeting.

The Perry Barr handler has some exciting juveniles to go to war with and Swift Hoffman (T6) will be all the rage in the fifth instalment at 9.07.

The Makeshift dog could hardly have been more impressive when beating the Sunderland Puppy Plate hero Calzaghe George here over 480m on Betfred Select Stakes night, and he has warmed up for a tilt at this Category One with two frighteningly quick solo trials over course and distance.

Kennel companion Newinn Yolo (T2), runner-up in the aforementioned Puppy Plate, looks made for this 500m trip at Colwick Park and he rates banker material in the fourth heat at 8.51.

The son of Crash beat Swift Hoffman (third) when runner-up to Mill Jolson in the Gymcrack at Kinsley in June and he covered tonight's track and trip in a rapid 29.49 in a solo trial of his own last week.

His style of running should be well suited to this stiff four-bend trip so expect fireworks going down the back.

At a price in the second heat at 8.22, Vatican Boo Boo (T1) could be worth siding with.

Rosney's son of Vans Escalade and Swift Eva clocked a smart 29.87 in a solo trial here seven days ago and could be plotted up in trap one on the basis that Bobs Belter may go in search of middle ground from trap two when the lids go up.
