The eagerly awaited draw for the Star Sports, ARC & LPS English Greyhound Derby was held at Nottingham on Friday.

The track host the prestigious race for the first time this year and Racing Manager Jason Smith reported: “The draw went smoothly with no hiccups and it’s all systems go for Friday and Saturday. It was great to be able to braodcast the draw live via YouTube.

“Heats 16 and 17 really look the standouts to me – last heat on the Friday and first on the Saturday look belters.

“If forced to pick one for the Derby I’d be sweet on the chances of Clonbrien Prince who I think has fared well in box two in the fifth heat.”

Jason Gander is heading up the ante-post book at starsports.bet and said immediately after the draw: “Burgess Bucks (heat 11) was the first one we saw money for and have clipped in from 22/1 to 20/1. Defending champion Dorotas Wildcat (heat 16) doesn’t have the easiest of starts being flanked by pace either side.  I thought heat 6 looks tasty as well with Ballymac Osby and Rising Brandy.

“The interest in the race is really picking up now and we are looking forward to betting on track at Nottingham, as well as taking bets on starsports.bet and our App.

“We’ve been busy putting together a whole host of specials on the race including Will The TR Be Broken During Any Heat Of The Derby (Inc Final) which has proved popular and we are now 5/4 that there will be a new record set.”
