Pin Point Yorkshire St Leger - Doncaster 661m (£8,000)

Millwards Teddy is looking to become only the second greyhound in history to win the Yorkshire St Leger back-to-back. He could not have started his bid off in more emphatic fashion; recording the fastest heat win and sending out a big message that he's running right at the top of his game. He did not take it up until the sixth-bend but once he hit the front he powered on to victory scoring by 3.5L over Romantic Rambo in 41.32.

 

It's great to see the defending champion firing on all cylinders but he was not the only impressive winner on the night. The remaining three heats witnessed some big performances. Toottoottootsie stopped the clock in 41.68 and recorded the second fastest split of the qualifiers of 14.56. The fastest was Kakantu who finished third behind Millwards Teddy who clocked a very fast 14.46. Liosgarbh Charl came out of the second-bend in front and was subsequently never headed to take heat three in 41.71. Farley Rio and Romany Rouge flashed over the line together in heat four. It took the judge to separate them but Farley Rio came out on top by a head in 41.64.

Semi-Finals Saturday 26th September 

 

Heading to the semi-finals on Saturday twelve greyhounds are bidding for a place in the Final on Wednesday 30th September live on Sky Sports. It is going to be an amazing night of action and there really is everything to play for. Can Millwards Teddy qualify and line up in the big decider with a chance of emulating the double champion Larkhill Bird in 2006 and 2007? Will Kakantu blast out once again and be able to hold off the challengers? Can Toottoottootsie make another big final for Paul Prior? Can Liosgarbh Charl, Droopys Tamera, Farley Rio or Romany Rouge step forward and really throw down a massive challenge for outright glory? All these questions and more will be answered at Doncaster on Saturday night!

 

Dean Childs on Millwards Teddy and Droopys Tamera 

 

"There is something extra special about returning to a competition the reigning champ and trying to defend your title. People forget how young Millwards Teddy was when he won it last year and I think he's matured in to the best stayer in the country. He loves Doncaster and runs it so well, the format suits him with it being first-three qualify and we are full of hope. You always need that bit of luck but everything is on track with him. I'd normally always want him ideally in trap-six but this time I'm happy with trap-five being on the inside of Droopys Tamera.

 

We never planned to run Droopys Tamera at Doncaster but after the TV Trophy we stepped her down to six-bends and she was running so well it seemed worth entering her. She's a very good bitch in her own right and I'm expecting her to come forward at Doncaster for the experience of last week. She ran very wide and I know she is open to improvement. Fingers crossed we get that bit of luck and we can be back at Doncaster on Wednesday with two in the final".
