The Ladbrokes Gold Cup Final

CAN MCNAIRS GRAB GOLD AGAIN?

AIRFIELD PAUDIE aims to provide Kent-based but Scottish husband-and-wife team Liz and Rab McNair with a second successive victory in the £10,000 Ladbrokes Gold Cup final at Monmore Green, Wolverhampton, on Thursday - and perhaps spark more Usain Bolt-like celebrations!

Rab McNair, husband of trainer Liz, is well known in greyhound circles for celebrating major wins with his own version of the 'Lightning Bolt' made famous by the champion sprinter, and in Airfield Paudie he has the only unbeaten runner in the original 36-dog competition.

However, in Viking Jack he faces a tough and strong-running rival expertly handled by Yorkshire handler Jim Hayton, who has dropped his kennel star in distance to produce the goods in this Category One competition over 480m.
