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

This looked an incredible race on paper and it certainly lived up to its billing. Roxholme Dream showed the best early-pace to make the corner in front with Elwick Glory in hot pursuit. These two served it up to each other but although Elwick Glory put in a huge effort she could not catch the 2014 Stayer and Bitch Of The Year who won by 0.75L in a joint fastest semi-final time of 28.96. 

Viking Jack finished 4th but he put in a remarkable performance. The 2014 Gold Cup winner stumbled at trap rise and was a good 6L detached from the field. He really turned on the accelerator from that point and went down bravely by only 3.5L in a very eye catching performance.

 

Qualifiers;

1st -     Roxholme Dream, 4.29, 28.96

2nd - Elwick Glory, 4.29, 29.02

 

Cookie Delivers A Monster Performance

 

Farneys Cookie delivered an exceptional performance that was filled with pace and power to book his place in the final. Kevin Boon's greyhound had to ride a bump at the corner but showed incredible pace down the back and passed the early leader Coolavanny Fish and went on to score over that rival by 2.5L equalling Roxholme Dream's time of 28.96. Coolavanny Fish and Dinzeo dead-heated in the first-round and incredibly there was only a short-head in it here with Dinzeo taking 3rd and narrowly missing out.

 

Qualifiers;

1st -     Farneys Cookie, 4.33, 28.96

2nd - Coolavanny Fish, 4.26, 29.16

 

Parker One-Two With Brax And Knox

 

Russanda Brax showed sizzling early-pace reminiscent of his sire Black Shaw to blow away the opposition early, he recorded a mind boggling 4.18 split. They could not live with him on the run to the corner but down the back Blonde Razor started to fly and threw down his challenge at the third-bend only to be chopped off by Russanda Brax. Blonde Razor went from looking a certain qualifier to needing a miracle after completely losing his action. The challengers lined up but you have to credit Russanda Brax who bravely held them off and crossed the line a neck to the good over the fast finishing Droopys Knox in 29.11. 

 

Qualifiers;

1st -     Russanda Brax, 4.18, 29.11
