A wide open Select Stakes will take place at Nottingham on Monday evening, and connections of all six greyhounds will fancy their chances of claiming victory in the one-off contest and the betting has launched the Angela Harrison-trained Droopys Verve and Droopys Expert to the top of the betting.

However, it's Julie Bateson's FOREST JASON that can down the Droopys duo and storm to victory, and etch his name alongside some of the premier found bend performers to have graced the track.  The fast-starting son of Droopys Jet heads to Nottingham on the back of some eye-catching trials, and he also showed when winning the JPW Trophy at Nottingham that he can produce the goods at this venue.

Drawn in trap five is far from ideal, but if he can ping the lids then he has the class to get on the front end, and it's hard to see him being caught, despite a classy field of rivals lining up for what should be a fabulous renewal of the showpiece contest.
