Who's your pick for Greyhound of the Year?

The battle for Greyhound of the Year gets serious now with Mill Bling Bling leading the way, says The Lord in his weekly round-up of the hot stories

Taylors Sky, the Derby champion, was back in the headlines on Thursday when landing his heat of the Primus Telecom Derby at Henlow.
Proving a well-timed tonic for his owner Steve Taylor, who suffered complications during a recent heart operation and is recovering at home, Taylors Sky was quickest of the night with a stunning track-record equalling run of 27.21sec.
He now lines up in Thursday's semi-finals, with the final the week after Sky's next port of call.

The next few weeks could determine the Greyhound of the Year reckoning with Mill Bling Bling forcing his way into the picture with victory in Wednesday's All England Cup at Newcastle.
Adding the title to his Steel City Cup win at Sheffield, victory in either the Laurels or Eclipse could still catapult Kelly Macari's dog to the top of the list for the Greyhound Writers' Association to ponder at the end of the year.
Taylors Sky is also in contention of course having won the Derby and Monmore Gold Cup, while any sort of run of form from Jimmy Lollie could still push him back into contention with another host of sprint wins this year.

Greyhound racing is going 'Premier League' with the launch of a new initiative of the same name at Doncaster later this month.
Run along similar lines to the Trainers' Championship but with teams as opposed to individuals competing, the four-round first Premier League will culminate next February.
Coverage of the competition will be divided between Sky Sports and Premier Sports on the digital platform.
Some £40,000 has been earmarked for prize-money.

And finally to greyhound racing's rumour mill . . . .

Coventry could be set for a dramatic return if rumours of an imminent leasehold deal being struck between the owner and a third party are true.

A BAGS Derby is being considered by the powers that be, to run alongside the BAGS/SIS 500 series.

The Racing Post Juvenile Championship at Wimbledon in March could see a clash between hot properties Milldean Panther, Eden Star and Unreal Timmy.
