We’ll have two representatives in next week’s Star Sports & ARC Greyhound Derby Semi Finals as Wolfe and Ballydoyle Valor progressed this week.
The opening Quarter Final contest saw Wolfe claim the victory with a professional showing from a potentially tricky trap 5 draw. Keeping a straight line to the bend he led into the opening turn before cruising along the far side. With the classy Coolavanny Chick giving chase behind, Wolfe kept on well to hold her at bay eventually crossing the line two lengths in front in 29.47, the fastest of the quarter final times. Ballydoyle Valor overcame crowding at the first and fourth bends to keep on well to claim the 3rd qualifying spot in the third quarter final contest to book his place in next week’s semi finals.
Fortunately, the draw has seen both our runners kept apart with Valor in the 1st Semi Final with Wolfe then lining up in the 2nd. Full draw and form can be seen below.
