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

Millwards Teddy is still on course to defend his title but he had to play second fiddle to Romantic Rambo in the semi-finals. Millwards Teddy was out in front and the writing looked on the wall. Romantic Rambo had not read the script though, he is not only fast he's got a massive heart and he managed to catch Millwards Teddy right on the line to win by a Head in 41.44. Farley Rio got third and will once more line up in a big final.

 

Kakantu, just like he did in the heats, blasted out but would find this 661m course testing and he was caught by the powerful duo of Swift Curie and Romany Rouge. The former took the race by 0.75L in 41.62 with Romany Rouge sensationally recording his fifth straight second and incredibly his ninth in his last ten outings. 

 

Final - Wednesday 30th September (Sky Sports)

 

The scene is now set and we have six outstanding stayers set to do battle for the brilliant £8,000 to-the-winner prize. Millwards Teddy is looking to make history and become only the second greyhound to ever defend his Yorkshire St Leger crown since Larkhill Bird in 2006 and 2007. For the past two years Millwards Teddy has been right at the top of the staying world and he's been a model of consistency. Can he produce another massive run and make history?

 

Romantic Rambo is incredible he's battled back from a hock injury to once more be dining out at the top table of the staying world. He looked to have the staying world at his feet before injury struck and you have to give Kevin Cobbold huge credit. He showed in the semi-finals that he is once again a major force. 

 

Kevin Boon will be delighted to be doubly represented in the final with Farley Rio and Kakantu. Both of his runners are so consistent and they always give an excellent account of themselves in any competition. They have a touch of class and it would be no surprise to see either of them on the podium collecting the trophy. 

 

Romany Rouge is so often the bridesmaid but rarely the bride but can this talented greyhound get his head in front when it really matters? Competitions are all about qualifying and he's made the final with ease.

 

Swift Curie won her semi-final in style and Russ Warren has her running at the peak of her powers. She's finished in the first-three in each of her last ten starts and it's no wonder she lines up in the final with a big chance.

 

It's going to be exciting, it is the final of the 2015 Pin Point Yorkshire St Leger and it's live on Sky Sports. It looks to be one of the most open big race finals of the year and all six will head to traps with their supporters feeling confident. It enters the category of must watch - get to Doncaster or watch it on Sky but one thing is for sure; you do not want to miss this! 

 

Kevin Cobbold on Romantic Rambo 

 

"I have to say my wife (Lindsey) has done most of the work to get him back and we are over the moon. If you would have spoken to me on the morning of the semi-final I'd have taken 3rd it looked so hard. For him to catch the reigning champion Millwards Teddy was fantastic. This dogs got such a big heart and he's a million percent genuine, to battle back from his hock injury and perform like this is incredible.

 

There's not a lot I can do about the draw but he's won out of trap-one in Ireland so we just don't know. I'd love him to crack out because I think he can break better than he's done so far at Doncaster. I hope the quick run does not catch him out but right now he's 100% and we could not be happier with him. The hock is fine he's had a few niggles but could not wish for him to be in better shape right now. It's an amazing race but I'm hopeful of a big run and I know because of his massive heart he will give it everything.

 

I'd like to go on record to thank Doncaster they are better than anywhere in the country. They can't do enough for you and it's a fantastic track. The sponsors Pin Point are brilliant and I'd also like to thank them for putting on this great event".
