Key times today 21:56 and 0:07

Romford 21.56
A1, 400 metres
TIME: 21:56

We’re heading to the dogs tonight.

The Racing Post Greyhound TV service RPGTV (on Sky digital channel 212 & Freesat channel 402) ensures the sport gets some much deserved regular TV exposure alongside the excellent big race coverage from Sky.

It’s a topical day to talk greyhounds as this morning entries closed for the Derby which this year has attracted 153 runners.

The draw will be held on Sunday with the first round at Wimbledon on Friday and Saturday week and also live on RPGTV.

There’s a couple of A1’s on the card at Romford tonight and we’ve had a look at at 21:56 over the standard 400m trip.

Trap 5 Dudley’s Viking is of interest. He’s had a couple of recent outings over the longer 515m at Hove – close to Star Sports HQ – but disappointed and seems better here at Romford over this trip.

He missed the break last time but even if repeating his first bend split of 3.79 that day it would still be enough for him to be mixing it in this line-up. A better start and he could be away and gone.

Price? Hopefully north of 7/2.

(stake between 0.5 and 10 points)
5 points win TRAP 5 Dudleys Viking (21:56 Romford)

James Bond Watch Found At Car Boot Sale

Some people have all the luck and bad luck too for that matter.

This piece of memorabilia was bought for £25, but is expected to fetch between £40,000 and £60,000 at auction. That’s equal to backing a winner at anything between 1600/1 and 2400/1.

James Bond’s geiger counter wristwatch from Thunderball has turned up at a car boot sale following years of mystery about its whereabouts.

The prop, one of the many gadgets used by 007 during his 50 years on screen, was key to the plot of the film as it helped the secret agent locate stolen atomic weapons during underwater scenes in the 1965 film.

The Breitling watch was picked up for £25, but is now to be sold by Christie’s in London with an estimated price of up to £60,000.

The Top Time model by the luxury Swiss watch firm was the first watch Bond moviegoers had seen being adapted by Q’s team of boffins in the 007 film series.

It is one of a number of items that are given to Bond by Q, who was played by Desmond Llewelyn, when he heads over to Nassau.

One of the hands of the watch shows the strength of radioactivity.

Sir Sean Connery, who played the agent, uses it during the film’s famous aquatic scenes on a mission to find two Nato bombs that were stolen by the evil organisation Spectre.
