Timeform highlight the best greyhound bets at Nottingham on Friday.

Nottingham - 18:36 - Back Churchill Duke (Trap 3)

Churchill Duke (T3) is firmly into the veteran stage of his career but he remains a very reliable proposition out of the boxes and he utilised that early pace when scoring in A4 Nottingham company last week. He's back into A3 class tonight but still holds a big shout on our figures and, as an uncomplicated sort, a bold follow-up bid is on the cards.

Nottingham - 19:09 - Back Rowington Sky (Trap 1)

Rowington Sky (T1) is fancied to make all from a healthy 15-metre start from the scratch runner. On the face of it, a fifth-place finish in a similar race last week looks an ordinary run but Rowington Sky was still bang there until suffering late interference and ultimately swamped. That performance suggests she's in pretty good order and she can hopefully fend them off this evening.

Nottingham - 19:58 - Back Claro (Trap 2)

Just five line up for this A4 contest and that may help strong stayer Claro (T2) plot a winning path. Having been crowded early last week (race won by this evening's first selection Churchill Duke), Claro stuck to her task pretty well. With early pace either side of her, she will hopefully slot in behind the speed before running her rivals down off the final bend.
