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 30.

As we build up to the Plough Lane showpiece there are sure to be a plethora of market movers, but there are some stars who excelled his last year's competition that could return to the venue to try and improve and the likes of Ballymac Vic and Droopys Jet could return.

The competition will hot up as we venture through June with the action taking place in front of the Sky Sports cameras from the third round, but other standout names in the wide open betting market include Holborn Junior, Sidarian Blaze and Barefoot Scholar, who could all land a blow.

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.
