DERBY BUILD UP CULMINATING IN BLONDE SNAPPER'S FANTASTIC DERBY FINAL WIN
Just a brief catch up from last week as I have just returned from a lovely family holiday. It has been a busy time for the kennel with runners at many tracks last week and competitions starting this week at Monmore, Romford and Doncaster.
Not the best of luck last week with both our runners at Sheffield's Sky meeting last Tuesday with Blonde Fletch just getting collared on the line over 660m and Blonde Reagan also second over 720m.
On Wednesday at Yarmouth Ayamzaman ran a blinder in the East Anglian Challenge Final but was just beaten a short head in 27.80. Still a good performance and with the East Anglian Derby just round the corner he will head our challenge for outright honours. On the night Darian Creek (27.82) and Kinda True (28.08) also landed opens.
It was good to see Aero Joker returm to winning ways in the heats of the Coral Brighton Belle last Thursday while Ayamzabeauty and Steam Machine also qualified for this Thursday's semi's.
This week we also have two finals at Monmore on Friday afternoon with Dixies Air going in the Ladbrokes Festival Gold Cup 630m and our Peterborough Derby winner Lil Risky running in the Ladbrokes Festival Gold Cup 416m.
At night we send a strong team that includes Blonde Fletch, Blonde Reagan, Ballintine Molly and Carden Twilight to Doncaster for the Yorkshire St Leger kindly sponsored by Gain Feeds.
We will be back to normal next Monday with all the news and reviews from the kennel and my views on the greyhound world.
