GREYHOUNDS: We preview a 12-race card for the final night of Round One of the Derby

Heat 22 18.20

1 Barefoot Supremo

2 Darbys Delight

3 Russian Glory

4 Bubbly Apache (m)

5 Derrinasafa Boss (m)

6 Beach Avenue (w)

Verdict: Saturday night starts with a bang with some real star trackers lining up. Darbys Delight and Beach Avenue are two Shelbourne stalwarts who really motor from halfway. Russian Glory is no slouch and is well drawn in three with a slow starter on his left. Bubbly Apache is my idea of the winner here. He is capable of a flying start on his day and if making one of his better exits he would be extremely hard to peg back

Selection: Bubbly Apache

Heat 23 18.35

1 Jeopardy Dawg

2 Seomra Razl

3 Burnchurch Mick

4 Millridge Conor (m)

5 Adeles Duke (m)

6 Faughan Rebel (w)

Verdict: Burnchurch Mick is very capable on his day and has a good draw outside Seomra Razl. It is hard to ignore the recent trial effort of Adeles Duke and he will take this with a repeat effort. It is a wide-open heat where the break is vital. A chance is taken in Adeles Duke to come out on top. Faughan Rebel is the old man of the party but usually runs on well.

Selection: Adeles Duke

Heat 24 18.50

1 Jaytee Wexford

2 Churchill Holly

3 Milton Harbour

4 Glengar Jenny (m)

5 Storys Peewee (m)

6 Chelms Road (w)

Verdict: Jaytee Wexford was impressive in a recent victory around Shelbourne Park. He stays on strongly and loves the rails. Churchill Holly has won her last three starts and put up an outstanding performance in a trial here on May 8th. Storys Pewee is a strong finishing sort who will be there or there abouts at the business end while Chelms Road will attempt to make all. He could slip the field and at around 7/1 he could give you a good run for your money.

Selection: Chelms Road

Heat 25 19.10

1 Romeo On Tilt

2 Deadly Showtime

3 Sharky Jezabelle

4 Chelms Cub (m)

5 Narcos Tata (m)

6 Clerihan Axle (w)

Verdict: Deadly Showtime is yet another Irish runner who showed real promise around Limerick in the Kirby and he is a dog blessed with fine early pace. He has won over 526m around Cork in the past so if dictating it is hard to see anything come from behind him. Romeo On Tilt is a solid performer with some good form around the track, he could give the selection most to do.

Selection: Deadly Showtime

Heat 26 19.30

1 Jumeirah Jimmy

2 Fatboyz Exile

3 Millhouse Alan

4 Belmullet Brandy (m)

5 Deanridge Skippy (m)

6 Coppice Brewer (w)

Verdict: The early paced Deanridge Skippy looks certain to lead in this but there are plenty of big finishers drawn in this heat and they will be looking to run him down late on. Any trouble in behind will aid Skippy’s cause but you get the impression something will get loose and run him down late on. Jumeirah Jimmy has the best of the draw and could be the one to do so,

Selection: Jumeriah Jimmy

Heat 27 19.48

1 Into The Void

2 Freedom Editor

3 Farneys Maestro

4 Bockos Vieira (m)

5 Pocket Lola (m)

6 Come Asyouare (w)

Verdict: The lightly races Bockos Viera began his career with a real bang around Shelbourne and you get the impression better is to come. He has been very highly tried recently and could go well in this competition. Into The Void will look to set the pace from box one but has stamina limitations. Freedom Editor and Farneys Maestro have solid course form as to does Pocket Lola. However, there is more to come from Bockos Viera.

Selection: Bockos Viera

Heat 28 20.05

1 Wide Open

2 Zazzeras Jack

3 Borna Wine

4 Bockos Budsit (m)

5 Bens Lad (m)

6 Havana Bale Out (w)

Verdict: Another contender for heat of the round. Wide Open was superb in the recent Maiden Derby final over course and distance where luck deserted her when a hot favourite to take the final, she remains a young bitch of real potential and has an ace draw in one. She will not have it all her own way with the early paced Bockos Budsit likely to make an early bid for glory from four. Havana Bale Out is another cracking young bitch, she went well in the puppy derby around here late last year and runs the track well.

Selection: Bockos Budsit

Heat 29 20.26

1 Knight Tornado

2 Romeo Magico

3 Deadly Destroyer

4 Daring Deise (m)

5 Killieford Defoe (m)

6 Frosties Ten (w)

Verdict: Three of Irelands absolute best clash in heat twenty-nine in the shape of Knight Tornado Romeo Magico and Deadly Destroyer, they have similar running styles and are all much better when leading early. Knight Tornado was a little disappointing when leading last week so slight preference is for the in-form Romeo Magico, he ran a blinder last week when holding 2021 winner Thorn Falcon all the way in a great battle.

Selection: Romeo Magico

Heat 30 20.45

1 Glenvale Tony

2 Headford Mike

3 Shelbys Memory

4 Romeo On Fire (m)

5 Fernandes (m)

6 All About Ted (w)

Verdict: Last year’s Irish Derby finalist All About Ted will be favourite to win heat thirty. He has not had the best of luck in two recent outings around here, but you can be sure much better is to come. Romeo On Fire has some good Irish form and was a good winner around here last time out. If All About Ted can get back to near his best, he should be hard to beat

Selection: All About Ted

Heat 31 21.04

1 Lemon Bartacus

2 Ballymac Leon

3 Baggios Champ

4 Mystical Mario (m)

5 Farneys Richie (m)

6 Lemon Reuben (w)

Verdict: Ballymac Leon has been highly tried in his brief career to date and we certainly have not seen the best of him yet. Liam Dowling must see potential in the youngster to bring him over and that shows you there is better to come. Baggios Champ would prefer further but his trial effort was highly promising. Farneys Richie has excellent course form and should not be overlooked

Selection: Ballymac Leon

Heat 32 21.20

1 Stefans Rocket

2 Romeo De Niro

3 Longrange Dick

4 Clongeel Ozzie (m)

5 Loggies Monty (m)

6 Farneys Calipso (w)

Verdict: Ex Irish tracker Stefans Rocket is a dog blessed with huge early pace and is fancied to make all in the final of the thirty-two heats. He ran well in the early rounds of last year’s Irish Derby and looks the one to be on. Longrange Dick may give him most to think about after his smart trial around here last week.

Selection: Stefans Rocket

Weekend’s Best Bets.

Towcester Saturday: 19:10 Deadly Showtime, Two units win
