Another Friday night and another great evening of dog racing action live on RPGTV, Sky channel 212 or Freesat channel 401. Romford and Sunderland are the destinations for this evening, with both meetings staging thirteen race cards. As is usually the case, Romford’s cards is full of open contests, while Sunderland deliver the graded action. Bet365 have priced up all the races at both meetings so greyhound punters get get stuck in early if they so wish. Here are our best bets for Friday 15th August.
This maiden stayers event is run over a trip of 575m and has a solid looking favourite in the shape of the two dog, Holycross Gerry who can be backed at odds of 7/4 with Betfred. This Yarmouth raider is a relatively recent recruit from Ireland, and his level of form there was fairly consistent. I personally prefer the chances of Nicky Nutjob who wears the white jacket from trap three. This dog has finished second in two of his last three starts, and deserves a change of luck. I think connections have found a decent opportunity here tonight and Nicky Nutjob looks at value play against the favourite at odds of 3/1.

A bitches race which sees a greyhound I napped last week reappear, and I’m going to forgive one bad run and give her another chance. Genesis Demester started well enough here last Friday but did not get the run of the race at all and found trouble on two separate occasions. Her form prior to that defeat had been sensational and it’s too soon to write Genesis Demester off. I’ll be snapping up the 3/1 on offer with Betfred. The danger could well come in the shape of trap one Evanta Fantasy who looks to have the best of the draw and won in impressive fashion here last week.
