2014 William Hill Greyhound Derby Final-Sky Sports 1 from 7pm

A RECORD £200,000 is up for grabs as the honour of being the world's fastest greyhound will be settled at Wimbledon Stadium, London, on Saturday night with the final of the William Hill Greyhound Derby, live on Sky Sports 1.

Who will land a knockout blow on the track, just minutes before Carl Froch and George Groves step into the ring across the capital at Wembley Stadium. Bookmakers are betting on the double. The red corner (Crokers Champ) or the blue corner (Salad Dodger)?!

Ireland are fancied to claim their first Derby title for six years with the two favourites in a competition where 222 greyhounds started out on the road to canine immortality. Mind The Net, trained by Pat Buckley, is the fastest qualifier, but Crokers Champ, handled by Peter Cronin, is generally considered to quickest starter.
