The Final of the William Hill Oaks takes place on Thursday 8th December and is live on Sky Sports 2. The event is held at Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium and takes place of a trip of 480m. There is £8,500 on offer in total prize money with £6,000 of that going to the winning greyhound.
Charlie Lister’s Silverview Perky is the current 5/4 market leader for the title with bet365. Although she was very impressive in the early stages of the competition, this bitch was beaten by the John Gammon trained Spinkys Nod in the semi finals. Spinkys got away from the traps extremely well to win by a length and a quarter from Silverview Perky in a time of 28.78sec.
The second semi final was won by the Dean Childs trained Droopys Loner who was successful by a length in 28.88sec from another Charlie Lister hopeful, Boher Princess. This means Lister will now be double handed in this year’s William Hill Oaks Final. Big outsider Droopys Aretha also managed to make it through to the final by finishing in third spot. The bookies don’t give her much chance in the race however, with bet365 giving a huge quote of 33/1.
