The PinPoint Health And Homecare Three Steps To Victory - Sheffield (£10,000)

We started off with thirty-six greyhounds but after the first-round over 480m, the semi-finals over 500m, we now have six greyhounds racing over 660m live on Sky Sports in a bid to be crowned the Pinpoint Health And Homecare Three Steps To Victory champion and collect the magnificent £10,000 to-the-winner first prize. 

 

The last two winners Ballymac Eske and Hather George made their six-bend debut in this race. Russanda Brax is the only greyhound yet to run over six-bends and I'm sure Elaine Parker is hoping history will repeat itself. He is unbeaten in the competition so far and is blessed with fantastic early-pace, will he see the 660m trip? The only person to ask that important question to was Elaine Parker so I did exactly that. Elaine is doubly represented with Droopys Knox, she has done brilliant to make it to the final and while there are question marks about the stamina of Russanda Brax there is no stamina doubts about Droopys Knox she is already proven at the trip.

 

Elaine Parker On Russanda Brax and Droopys Knox

 

'The truth is I don't know, his mother stayed and his sister does but he's never been this far before, he's never been out of those boxes. I'm delighted he's in the final, I bred him, reared him and it would be great if he could win not only for me but for British Breeding. He's got so much early-pace, I just hope he takes a flier on Tuesday and then we will all find out if he can stay this trip or not. 

 

Droopys Knox is different I know she stays and she's already won over the 660m. She can do it both ways. Both greyhounds are well and it's fantastic to have two in the final of this prestigious race on our home track. I'd like to thank the sponsors and the stadium for everything it's been a brilliant competition and I'm so proud to be involved'. 

 

It won't be easy for Elaine Parker to win another big final at her home track of Sheffield, the opposition is of the highest calibre. Roxholme Dream is unbeaten in the competition and the 2014 Stayer and Bitch of the year will be looking to add more silverware to her ever growing collection.

 

Elwick Glory is a six-bend competition winner, Farneys Cookie has been ultra-impressive and it would be a brave person to write off Charlie Lister OBE who is represented with Coolavanny Fish. One thing that is for sure it will be electric and it is going to be a race to savour.
