Ladbrokes Summer Stayers Classic - Monmore 630m (£7,500)

17 top-class stayers are set to do battle on Monday at Monmore in the Ladbrokes Summer Stayers Classic worth £7,500 to-the-winner. The advice is get to the Wolverhampton circuit because this is going to be special but for those who can't it's live in betting shops nationwide courtesy of BAGS/SIS.

 

The sad news is the competition lost the fastest heat winner Swansalona Diva due to her coming in season. It's a shame for connections because she was running ever so well but you can't stop Mother Nature. One of the most interesting battles is that between the Regency one-two, Touch Tackle and Millwards Teddy. The latter came out on top in the heats but which one of them will emerge victorious in their semi-final? They will both have to be on top of their game because this looks a race of the highest order. Jaytee Osprey, Cremartin Lark, European Queen and Tybar Hondo are serious greyhounds and will give Touch Tackle and Millwards Teddy plenty to think about.

'The Regency final was a bitter pill to swallow, I never in my head thought he would do what he did. He showed blistering pace and had the race won but he threw it away by being awkward on the run in. He's got a great determination to win and I think he got over excited but there is not a lot you can do except present them at their best and hope they do the job. He's a great dog and like all great dogs he answered his critics in the best possible way by coming out and winning in the heats. Take nothing away from Touch Tackle he's a great dog and ran a brilliant race but it was good for the dog to bounce back. We have to try and forget the Regency now and we are keeping him ticking over and trying our best to help prevent him from boiling over. 

His semi-final is tough on paper and it's a blow he's got trap-four but I'm hoping he can come away and then show his brilliant middle-pace to put himself in with a chance of qualifying. No doubt he's a better dog in trap-six, he seems to come away better but he is very well. It is imperative he traps and if he does he is definitely good enough to make the final'.

 

The third semi-final is the attention grabber for sure but the other two are fantastic affairs in their own right. It's going to be a special day at Monmore and very interesting to learn which six greyhounds will line up for the final on Friday 19th June.
