"King Sheeran, who just missed out in the Greyhound of the Year reckonings after a 2019 haul which included Olympic and British Bred Derby successes, contests his first ever graded race and one, which despite the strong opposition, he is expected to win"

The return of Open racing may still be over a week away but the feature A1 (18:52) would do justice to any major competition. King Sheeran, who just missed out in the Greyhound of the Year reckonings after a 2019 haul which included Olympic and British Bred Derby successes, contests his first ever graded race and one, which despite the strong opposition, he is expected to win.

Liz McNair's charge has not been seen since getting turned over in a Derby trial stakes at Nottingham in March but his trials back in, especially two sharp sprints, suggests this class act can rule the roost first time back. Not that it will be gifted to him on a plate with Tommys Panther, having clocked a personal best when scorching home in top grade last week, and Steel City Cup runner-up Lenson Whelan waiting in the wings to cause a potential upset.

Jump on Ginola

The variety laden card includes three Intertrack races against Henlow, or Jason Bloomfield runners from that track to be precise, but while Savana Scamp has handled himself well on previous visits to the Kent track it is hard to see him being good enough to master Goldies Ginola (20:32). Pat Janssens charge has won seven of his last ten over the 480m CD and while he was turned over at odds-on just ahead of lockdown his record when fresh suggests he can further enhance those figures if as expected he gets first run.

Briony's chance looks bright

Madabout Briony was a late call up for an A3 (20:12) but Luke Morrison's improving youngster should prove a cut above the opposition. Not disgraced in an Open race the day before she came into season in mid-March she should come on for her two return efforts in better company while a romp when scorching home on just her second start in an A4 suggests what she is capable of.

Hello Harry took to the red jacket of trap one for the first time particularly well when comfortably clocking the fastest time in the heats of a D3 event last week and can repeat the feat back in the same box in the final (19:52).

Lay Bacchus may be best

Bacchus has been flying since resumption recording a quick-fire hat-trick but may come unstuck against Galtymoore Gerry in another Intertrack (18:32) and is one to take on.
