Williamhill.com Northern Puppy Derby - Newcastle 480m (£8,000)

Camp Joker put in a fantastic display taking his heat in breathtaking fashion in 28.56. Pat Rosney's puppy flew out recording a 4.60 sectional and from that point on it was a race against the clock. Newyork City Boy made it a double for Pat Rosney in this competition and a four-timer on the night winning in 28.95. Droopys Buick showed he is not a one-trick-pony after missing his break to run on strong to take his heat in 28.81. Ted Soppitt and owner Carl Roberts scored with Calzaghe Matt in 28.93 and I decided to catch up with him once again.

Semi-Finals 10/10/15 (live RPGTV)

 

Carl Roberts Owner Of Calzaghe Matt 

 

"I was really pleased to see Calzaghe Billy run well for new connections after I sold him and would like to wish them well.

 

Calzaghe Matt was not an expensive purchase from Ireland and I thought he ran very well. He's a dog that took Ted a while to get right but once again huge credit to his brilliant trainer because now we are reaping the rewards. He is a dog that gets better the more he runs a track and I'd be hopeful there is further improvement to come. He's got a nice draw in the semi-final and I think he should qualify".

 

18 sensational puppies head to the semi-finals live on RPGTV on Saturday night. I'm immediately drawn to the second semi-final; Droopys Buick V Camp Joker what a contest this is going to be. Will they both make it to the final?
