The Bettor.com Scottish Derby Final meeting from Shawfield is live tonight on Sky Sports 4 from 8pm. As well as the big race at 10:15pm, there is a whole host of open race action for greyhound racing fans to enjoy. The 2012 Scottish Derby Final looks a wide open event with the bookmakers struggling to separate the first four dogs in the market off the back of last week’s semi finals. When I recently previewed this event I tipped Tudor Prince and I’m going to stick with Harry Williams’ greyhound. He was just touched off by Bowtime Sykes in the semis but he has a better draw tonight and has arguably been the most consistent dog throughout the competition. Mill Pegasus is the likely danger to my selection off the back of his impressive semi final victory but the 7/2 available on the Prince makes plenty of appeal.

Back Tudor Prince @ 7/2 with William Hill
There looks to be some decent value elsewhere on tonight’s card and hopefully we can make it another profitable evening. Here is a look at some of the other Shawfield races.
Although the unbeaten Farloe Warhawk will be all the rage for this particular event, I think the value lies with the five dog, Greenwell Thor. A repeat of his trial here last month would certainly give the short priced favourite something to think about and the early 7/2 available with Betfred for the orange jacket looks big to these eyes. Farloe is odds on with most firms which seems a bit stingy and therefore worth opposing.
Back Greenwell Thor @ 7/2 with Betfred
Blue Artisan was turned over at short odds here last time and should be opposed again here. Mags Gamble was super impressive when winning over course and distance last time out and I think he’s huge value at 9/4 with Bet Victor to follow up. Take the price it won’t last, my Nap of the night. Ladbrokes are as short as 13/8.
