Does anyone SERIOUSLY believe that in the Greyhound Derby final this year that unless there is carnage on the inside in the final that whichever dog is in trap 6 can win?

Just asking like.....

How refreshing to hear a racing manager calling out TOWCESTER for the joke that it is re dogs crawling out of the traps.

Them of course there’s the fact that at open level unless the others stop each other in their tracks a genuine trap 6 winner can’t win

But hey let’s kiss their ass and award them the Derby (a touch of Lord Hesketh Deja vu anyone, remember how they all tugged their forelocks to that pillock.......)

Anyone  thinks that's a level playing field with those traps round Tow is either blind or lying ,people raising concerns are not moaning they are stating a fact , The track itself still has issues but sorting the boxes would be a big step forward  .PH a punter as long as myself and a shrewd judge has said the Gaff is a no go , I would rather listen to him than the Members of the Backslappers convention .

Sick to death of talking about the Gaff loyal not much to ask for a near level track , Its not moaning its pointing out Faults that are ignored by the main media unless some people pipe up ,watching the last two weeks has been just silly  The track has been up a few months all of a sudden a month before the derby its decided there IS an issue with the boxes , they were unstable and not just for the past two weeks ,I am not knocking
the gaff they are doing their best  , I want a nice fair track I hope they can sort it , But sadly the last chance of a super track went with Coventry and that is a fact , if TOW will be good for the sport remains to be seen .....
Report LoyalHoncho April 28, 2021 6:14 PM BST
I agree with you.  But at least they still have time to sort the trap issue out.  It is not good but we can only hope they get it right in a months time.  On a tangent I thought that David Mitchell's article in the RP was revealing.  You'll have read it already I am sure, if not it is still on there as a "Monday Column".  I know the game is in the s hit and i can't see a way out either.  We can only hope this Derby gives us all something to enthuse about again but with a governing body acting like the Kremlin it doesn't look good.

So, credit where credits due they seem to have sorted the traps out, which obviously is very good news

Still some negatives though

Next to nothing seems to come from behind and win, not even if you come out of the second bend in second place, and this over a 500 metres trip.

I still believe that once you get a race at Towcester  with six high class dogs in it (say from the quarter finals onwards) with proper Derby class pace it’s very hard for trap 6 at that first bend, as in the problem wasn’t just about the traps.
First 4 winners lay off front runner ?
Swift cope was last going into first bend
I think new traps open up the derby too outside
Made inside boxs completely useless how I see it
