English Derby

English Greyhound Derby - 29th May to 27th June, 2015

Laughil Blake was a sensational winner of the Irish Greyhound Derby at Shelbourne Park in September and the top class Emerald Isle raider is all set to head to Wimbledon to try and reign supreme in the English Greyhound Derby, which will kick off at the end of May.

Droopys Nidge is another top notch Irish performer that could make the trip over to Plough Lane for the feature event on the greyhound calendar, whilst Sidarian Blaze and last year's finalist Mind The Net are just another cracking duo towards the head of what is a fascinating ante-post betting market.

Newinn Yolo has launched into the elite category over the last 12 months and he will be one of the premier challengers for the home team, whilst the star triumvirate of Farloe Blitz, Swift Hoffman and Swift Keith add sensational depth to what will be a competition that hots up and ventures on to the Sky Sports cameras in the latter stages.

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.
