Dorotas Wildcat To Storm To Select Stakes Success
- 26 Jul 2017 09:49AM
A star-studded sextet will bid for Betfred Select Stakes glory at Nottingham on Wednesday night at 9:08pm, and while the absence of Greyhound Derby hero Astute Missile is a huge disappointment there will still be a top-class field heading to the 500m start, and it's Kevin Hutton's Derby Plate hero Dorotas Wildcat, who can bound to glory in this coveted £7,500 race.
Knocked out early in the Derby, he showed when blitzing to victory in the consolation event at Towcester that he is a real class act, and drawn in the red jacket for this race, he has to be the one they all have to beat, even with the likes of Bubbly Bluebird and Droopys Buick taking their chance in the showpiece event.
He can often miss the break slightly, but he shows blistering early pace, and if he can just get his nose in front of the fast-starting Bubbly Bluebird on his outside then Hutton's charge can show his class in the latter part of the race, and add this coveted title to a CV that is sure to enhance as his career progresses.
