A star-studded field will line up for the RPGTV Scottish Derby, which kicks off at Shawfield greyhound stadium on Saturday night, and all 36 dogs will fancy their chances of emulating Dorotas Woo Hoo, who was a sensational winner of the elite competition north of the border last year.

However, with that contender not amongst the entries this year then we will have a new name on the illustrious roll of honour and Bruisers Bullet will be aiming to build on a fine campaign in the Greyhound Derby at Towcester last year, and he is sure to be one of the prominent figures in the betting.

Calico Ranger is a stunning performer on his day, and he will be one of the eye-catching wides lining up, and he will feature in the last of six first round heats, while the likes of King Turbo, Forest West, Dropzone, Dorotas Vic and last year's finalist Coolavanny Mason will add significant depth to what should be a fantastic competition in the coming weeks.
