Betfair are a partner in one of the most exciting projects launched in greyhound racing in recent years - Racing Post Greyhound TV.

On Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, top-class greyhound racing is brought to your TV screens via Sky digital channel 231 (Freesat channel 402).

Thursday is Henlow and Hove, Friday is Romford and Sunderland and Saturday is Crayford and Newcastle.

Open race fans are in for another treat on Thursday evening with a stack of good races from both Hove and Henlow, where the latter venue includes a number of Puppy Derby Trial Stakes - the event begins live on RPGTV in two weeks time.

Unraced since chasing home Tullig Joy in a blistering hot Sussex Puppy Trophy final at Hove last month, Coolavanny Bert can regain the winning thread for in-form trainer Kelly Findlay in the 20:26, following a brace of good trials around the Bedfordshire circuit. Earlier on David Mullins' Be Real can follow up his recent CD victory in what appears a weak heat at 19:54.

Ballymac William didn't enjoy much luck in last week's Prestige final at Hall Green, but can make amends for high-flying Dean Childs, also at Henlow in the 22:03, where he is fancied to overcome his trap five berth to make it four from four over the 550m trip.

Hove's card includes three 'must back' greyhounds with Farloe Ironman expected to return to winning ways in the 21:06 following a reverse in the Premier League at Yarmouth on Saturday. Matt Dartnall's runner has proved almost unstoppable over the 515m trip at the Sussex track winning on his last five visits.

Kennelmate Ballymac Pet, an emphatic winner on the same Yarmouth card, has also proved hard to handle at Hove, and should win the 695m contest at 20:34.

Frank Taylor has high hopes for You Mind Me this season, and the Sittingbourne track holder looks nailed on for Hove's opener at 19:31 after dipping inside the Yarmouth sprint clock in a trial there last weekend.

On Friday, Sequential, desperately unlucky behind Fancy Socks last weekend can make amends in the 21:56 at Romford. He was given little chance in a sprint at Nottingham on Monday but is far more effective over the 400m trip here.

High-class puppy Mountjoy Osprey takes on his elders in the 22:11 but can pass the test with flying colours and make it eight from his last nine over the CD.

Layers are advised to take on Masai Spirit in the feature Maiden Trophy final at 21:24 with Alison Ingram's runner facing a nightmare draw in trap five and a potentially useful rival in Packin Heat, who made a pleasing debut in the heats.

Crayford's Golden Jacket kicks off live on RPGTV in a fortnight's time, but with doubts about Fleeting Image's ability to handle the track he might be one to lay in a Trial Stakes on Saturday at 21:40.
