English Greyhound Derby first round previews - Saturday heats 30-35

Heat 30

BAREFOOT BULLET has moved very well in the trial races, clocking an average of 28.57secs over the two races. He should make all in heat 30. The two performances obviously surprised a few people, notably the bookmakers, who slashed his odds from 250-1 to 33-1, the selection is most definitely one to keep an eye on. The danger for this race may come from his outside in trap six in the form of Brinkleys Estate who has trapped out well in the heats and should qualify, along with Perilous Guide. prediction – 5 + 6 + 4

Heat 31

In a ‘soft’ looking heat, it may prove profitable to side with the inside traps. MAGNA FLINTOFF is the standout of a pretty average bunch and has an interesting record, which includes a Steel City runner’s up place behind Bandicoot Tipoki, who ran exceptionally well in Thursday’s heats. Trainer Barry Draper by-passed the trials for the selection but his profile suggests he will be hugely suited to Wimbledon and the 480m trip. Do it Blackie can make the most of his early pace and progress to the next stage. prediction – 1 + 2

Heat 32

MOVEIT JAMIE can dance his way to success in this heat. The Irish St.Leger finalist from last year has failed to hit the heights of his success in Ireland so far on English soil, but in a heat that lacks strength in depth the selection can finally announce himself on the scene. He did get within five lengths of Eye Onthe Storm in the Trainers Championships, which is pretty solid form, but his trainer Barry Draper is expecting big things from his star hound and at 100-1 in the outright market may represent good trading value. Longrange Shot and Micky Robbie should also qualify from a poor looking heat. prediction – 5 + 2 + 4

Heat 33

DROOPY’S FLO JO won on his first outing in an open race at Wimbledon last week, which is always an excellent sign to suggest that the dog takes to competitive action well. The Mark Wallis-trained Dalcash Scolari is probably the principle threat to the selection whilst Romeo Air also has an abundance of talent. prediction – 6 + 3 + 2

Heat 34

Carly Philpott’s MILLIES HAWK was beaten three lengths in the final of the Puppy Derby at Monmore earlier this year, and has gained many supporters with the quality of his performances. The selection backed that high class form up with a scintillating trial run, where he clocked 28.65 – with one of the quickest split times ever seen at the track. Honey Impact and Rio Venturo also broke the 29 second barrier in the trials and should go well in this heat. prediction – 4 + 5 + 6 

Heat 35

FREEDOM EMMA, third place to the impeccable Eye Onthe Storm in the Blue Riband last month, gives every indication that Wimbledon suits her well. Blessed with an almighty surge of early pace, the trap three draw can bring the best of the b***h’s running style. Hidden Sky should be on the tail of the selection in the early stages but fade away turning for home that probably will be enough to qualify along with Irish Derby finalist Toomaline Jack. prediction – 3 + 6 + 2
