English Derby

English Greyhound Derby - 1st May to 31st May

Sidaz Jack was a sensational winner of the English Greyhound Derby last year to hand Charlie Lister his seventh win in the prestigious event and the classy performer is a prominent figure in the ante-post betting for the 2014 renewal that kicks off at Wimbledon on May 1, but a whole host of classy performers will do battle in the Plough Lane showpiece.

An army of Irish raiders are sure to litter the bumper entry list and Kereight King will look to build on last year's impressive Derby campaign and he is another who spearheads what is a fascinating betting market that will hot up as we venture further into the competition.

Lister will not only unleash last year's winner, but Sidarian Blaze will aim to shine in this year's competition and he oozes class when producing his best, whilst Swift Keith has shown some electric displays around Wimbledon and if he can ping the lids will be a major contender in this epic competition.

Others who feature in the higher echelons of the betting include Pay Freeze who continues to enhance his reputation as his career progresses, whilst the likes of Ballymac Vic and Holdem Spy are another brace of eye-catching challengers who add great depth to what will be a bumper entry list received for the £200,000 feature.

English Derby History

Since it was established in 1927 the English Greyhound Derby is the toughest competition to win as the elite do battle over a gruelling qualifying process.

Originally run at White City until 1985, the Greyhound Derby now takes place at Wimbledon Stadium over a distance over 480 metres.

In a demanding competition, greyhounds will have to progress through several heats, before the top six remain and battle it out for Derby supremacy in the final.

The roll of honour lists such greats as Mick The Miller, who was a phenomenon back in the 1920s and more recently the likes of Rapid Ranger and Westmead Hawk have bagged the crown in consecutive years.

The undisputed champion of the current training crop is Charlie Lister, who bagged his sixth training crown with 2011 winner Taylors Sky, who set the track record of 28.17 seconds in the final.

With current sponsors William Hill boosting the win fund to a staggering £125,000 for the 2012 renewal, the English Greyhound Derby is certainly the most sought after competition in the greyhound calendar.
