Droopys Verve Installed As Favourite For Select Stakes At Nottingham
- 23 Jul 2019 11:25AM
Angela Harrison's Droopys Verve has been installed as the 2/1 favourite for the RPGTV Select Stakes, which takes centre stage at Nottingham on Monday, but last year's Eclipse runner-up will face some notable opposition in one of the feature races on the calendar.
A quarter-finalist in this year's Greyhound Derby, Droopys Verve is one of two Harrison-trained contenders with Droopys Expert adding more significant depth to the Harrison charge and the pair have been drawn next to each other with Verve in trap two and Expert in box three.
Jimmy Fenwick's Ice On Fire is drawn inside the Droopys duo and the trap one put in a decent trial at Nottingham as a warm-up for this event, and he could prove to be a lively rival towards the head of the betting.
Liam Dowling's Ballymac Tas was sensational throughout the Greyhound Derby and was spectacular to finish runner-up behind Priceless Blake in the marquee event of the year, and she will run from trap four, while Julie Bateson's Forest Jason will be housed in trap five, with the Hayley Keightley-trained Down To The Felt is the sole wide runner in the field and completes the line-up from trap six.
