Open race greyhound standings, up to and including 31 October 2017

 

 

King Elvis’ victory in the final of the Henlow Derby has propelled him to second place in the Open Race greyhound standings* behind Peterborough Derby winner Hiya Butt. The Liz McNair trained Produce Stakes winner accrued 60 points in October, taking his total to 177, just 4 points behind Hayley Keightley’s dual Derby finalist. His next target will probably be the Cat 1 British Bred Derby at Towcester, where he would no doubt come up against October’s top points scorer Candlelight Fire, winner of the Breeders Stakes at Nottingham.

The second highest points scorer was Droopys Expert, who went unbeaten when winning the All England Cup, while Kent Derby winner Bockos Alfie was fourth. Grand National winner Razdazl Raidio and Northern Puppy Derby winner Droopys Zephry complete the top six by virtue of scoring 50 points each when winning their respective Cat 1 finals.

There are four Cat 1 standard distance competitions left this year, although two of them are restricted; the Oaks for bitches only and Towcester’s British Bred Derby, so there are still plenty of points up for grabs. The Eclipse at Nottingham, which starts at on Monday, has attracted a top class entry including Droopys Expert, Droopys Buick and Shaneboy Freddie and if one them wins the final they will be in the shakeup at the end of the year going into the last Cat 1 of the year; the Hove Olympic. Hiya Butt is being aimed at the Cat 2 National Sprint at Nottingham, worth 20 points to the winner, while King Elvis will trial over 480m at Towcester to see if he is suited for British Bred Derby there later in the month. Geelo Saphire could win the Oaks but still fail to land the title, although she would certainly cement her position as favourite to win Bitch of the Year at the Greyhound of the Year Awards, the date of which will be announced shortly.
