English Derby

English Greyhound Derby - 27th May to 27th June, 2015

Farloe Blitz will put his unbeaten record on the line when he lines up in Saturday's mouth-watering Greyhound Derby final and Owen McKenna's superstar will be the one to beat as a scintillating sextet will do battle in the Wimbledon showpiece, which will be shown live on Sky Sports at 9:08pm.

The Irish speedster yet again blew his rivals away in Saturday's first semi-final and he will be aiming to ping the lids for one final time in the Plough Lane feature, but a classy field will line up and Danny Riordan's Rio Quattro is sure to be one of the primary challengers for the Emerald Isle star.

Rio Quattro has been handed the red jacket for the final, but he showed when chasing home Farloe Blitz in the semi-final that he can produce the goods on the big stage and has to be respected, whilst track record holder Eden The Kid will be aiming to land the prize for Liz McNair and if he can replicate his early competition performance where he went sub 28.00secs then he has to be a key challenger.

Making Paper produced a magical run when landing the second semi-final on Saturday and if he can emulate that display on the front end then he will be another key rival for red-hot jolly Farloe Blitz to see off, whilst Tynwald Bish is the sole wide runner in the field and Peter Cronin's charge is another that has shown some excellent early pace on occasions and adds yet more depth.

Millwards Davy will complete the line-up and has been installed as the outsider for the final, but he has shown tremendous tenacity throughout the competition and can't be completely disregarded for what should be a sensational race, as the sextet do battle for the £250,000 win pool.

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, but that has since been beaten and Sidaz Jack landed the prize for Lister a year later.

With current sponsors William Hill boosting the win fund to a staggering £200,000 for the 2014 renewal, the English Greyhound Derby is certainly the most sought after competition in the greyhound calendar.
