Greyhounds preview - Sep 2

  • Last Updated: September 2 2014, 9:27 BST

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

BAGS BEST BET: Big Thrill (T2, 8.31 Sheffield)

TODAY’S NAP: Viking Jack (T6, 7.27 Sheffield)

TODAY’S TREBLE: Droopys Alessio (T1, 7.11 Sheffield)

With the start of the Betfred Steel City Cup just a fortnight away, there are plenty of stars on show at Sheffield tonight.

Viking Jack (T6), impressive winner of the Ladbrokes Gold Cup at Monmore last month, gears up for a tilt at the £7,500 Category One at 7.27 and the stiff 500m trip should be to his liking.

The strong-running Vans Escalade dog proved he isn't lacking in the early pace department when making all in the aforementioned Monmore final in front of the Sky Sports cameras and a big run is expected from Jim Hayton's kennel star.

Big Thrill (T2) could also be Steel City Cup bound and he has been handed a decent opening at 8.31.

Winner of a maiden final over 480m on the Coors Light Three Steps To Victory undercard here in June, Elaine Parker's relatively lightly-raced May 2012 greyhound is yet to have scored over tonight's 500m trip, but he'll be getting stronger with each run and he's taken to get out on the bunny tonight.

Droopys Alessio (T1) boasts a good make-up clad in red at 7.11 and the Newcastle raider completes the trio.

Jimmy Wright's inmate created a favourable impression when making all in a puppy event at Newcastle last time out and the sole railer in the line-up is expected to get a clear run to the corner before opening up down the far side.
