Timeform Greyhound SmartPlays: Monday 17 September
Timeform pick out two bets from Perry Barr and Nottingham on Monday...
"...the 13.51 should be his for the taking."
Timeform on Drahbeg Duke
DRAHBEG DUKE's (T4) losing sequence stretches back to June, and in a way it's easy to see why given his run style, but he has been knocking on the door and is better than A4 Perry Barr class, so the 13.51 should be his for the taking.
The best bet on the RPGTV card at Nottingham arrives in the first race at 18.29, with HONOUR HAWK (T1) fancied to snap a frustrating run of defeats. In fact the selection has failed to win since transferring from Doncaster, but he holds an advantage on the clock and the switch to the inside trap may well see him in a better light.
The East Midlands venue has always been regarded as a very fair track given its galloping nature, but like everywhere else, the 480m is a slightly different story as an early position is vital given the short run to the bend. That will suit HAGGSWOOD CORA (T3, 19.05) down to the ground as she has been going clear over the standard trip of late, only to be reeled in late.
Drahbeg Duke Trap 4 13.51 Perry Barr
Honour Hawk Trap 1 18.29 Nottingham
Haggswood Cora Trap 3 19.05 Nottingham
