BEST BET: Rising Brandy (T2, 8.13 Towcester)

NEXT BEST: Knockard Spring (T4, 7.36 Towcester)

TREBLE: Bombers Bullet (T4, 7.16 Towcester)

By Chris Oliver

Things are really heating up in the Star Sports Greyhound Derby as all the action moves one night for the third round at Towcester this evening, live on RPGTV.

The clash of the second round saw Bruisers Bullet gets first run on fellow leading outright player Rising Brandy (T2) and record an impressive victory in a red-hot time, and they meet again in the race of the night at 8.13.

The likes of 2017 semi-finalist Swithins Brae, Droopys Bonucci, Calico Ranger and the evergreen Bubbly Turbo add further spice to a tasty contest, but Rising Brandy is fancied to regain the winning thread.

Matt Dartnall's charge lost nothing in defeat last Friday as the winner only just beat him to the corner, and it could be roles reversed now with that rival far from certain to replicate that ping break and the selection moving back to trap two, from which he posted a rapid 5.16 sectional the week before.

So impressive in the Monmore Puppy Derby and winning his first two starts here, he isn't expected to be caught if turning in front.

The connections of Bruisers Bullet look have another contender in Bombers Bullet (T4) and he can maintain his unbeaten record in the event in the opener at 7.16.

Having impressed with a demolition job in the first round, he showed an early lead is not a necessity when powering past Bubbly Bluebird to run out an impressive wide-margin winner again last Friday.

The latter reopposes but you get the impression there could be more to come from Mark Wallis' charge and he has the all-round class to make the most of a nice make-up in the black jacket outside the slow-starting Calico Brandy.

Knockard Spring (T4) did very little wrong when losing out by a neck to Black Farren last week and is fancied to gain compensation at 7.36.

Kevin Boon's charge showed smart pace to get to the front after the winner pinged on that occasion and did well to hold that strong-running rival off until the dying strides.

There isn't too much early speed in this evening's contest, particularly from his neighbours, and he can race clear beyond recall.
