Sky Sports 3 will be showing the Injured Jockeys Fund Night at Harlow this Tuesday night. The coverage gets underway at 7.30pm with eight live races being shown throughout the evening. First up at 7.40pm is the Lorraine Elliot 1967 Birthday Stakes. This open race event offers £500 to the winning greyhound and is run over a trip of 415m. Tipp Are Back in Trap 1 has shown some consistent form in recent races and could be the one to beat.
At 8.00pm we have the The S.Walsh Recycling & Construction Solutions Sprint over a very short trip of 238m, again with a purse of £500. Wide runner Romeo Dasher in the 6 box has plenty over solid numbers over these minimum distances and looks to hold strong claims.
The Isaacson Electrical & Rexel Senate Maxi Marathon is off at 8.15pm and we go from one extreme to another, with this race being staged over the marathon trip of 946m. Most of these greyhounds are stepping up in trip but Droopys Djokovic coming out of Trap 3 has won two of his last five starts at distances just short of this. He can likely make it three wins from six here.
Another competitive looking open race at 8.35pm sees home favourite Buglys Star take on a number of visiting greyhounds in the Collins Coaches & Allied Deanridge Stayers. Robert Boosey’s charge has been contesting races just below this standard recently but with home advantage and experience over the 592m trip, the wide runner holds every chance.
The Ocean Trailers Bitches Stakes at 8.50pm takes place over 415m and once again offers £500 to the winning bitch. Sundance Saffy coming out of Trap 5 is coming off the back of two good runs including a win over course and distance last time out. Paul Simmonds’ bitch is likely to be a warm order to make it back to back victories.
Abc 300900 & William Hill & Greene King Ipa Marathon Stakes is the ridiculously title 769m event at 9.10pm. Liosgarbh West coming out of Trap 4 doesn’t appear to have the best of draws but does appear to be the most solid animal over this distance having clocked 50.03 when winning here earlier this month.
With prize money increased to £1000 for the 9.25pm The Greene King Old Speckled Hen Stakes, things get a bit more competitive over this 415m event. The six dog Seanis Bet looks to be going the right way and although has a bit to find on the book, this bitch may be able to avoid any potential trouble and take advantage of being the only wide runner in the race.
The highlight of the evening is the £5000 The Bigwin.com Property Stakes at 9.45pm. This 592m event would appear to rest between the two wide runners, Tain Maeve in Trap 5 and Swabys Onenut in Trap 6. Should these two dogs collide at the first bend, Benro Blackie in Trap 2 could well be the greyhound to take advantage.
