Draper domination in puppy double bids!
Barrie Draper dominates the fore-front of the williamhill.com Puppy Derby betting in his bid to follow up the success of Eden Star last year, with Ballymac Eske 11-10 favourite with the sponsors for the Wimbledon highlight.
Kennelmate Farloe Warhawk, who sluiced in a trial time of 28.34s recently, is next in the betting at 4-1, and Hills quote 1-2 for a Draper double in the premier puppy competition.
Mark Wallis's Blonde Snapper was third in this event two years ago before going on to win the 2012 Greyhound Derby, and the same trainer enters Cuil Condor, who is quoted at 13-2 with Hills, this time around.
"There are some very exciting pups in the mix this year despite the slightly lower entry, with Barrie Draper obviously holding a powerful hand to throw at a Puppy Derby double", said William Hill spokeswoman Lucy Rhodes,
"Ballymac Eske is already joint-favourite for the 2013 williamhill.com Derby despite the fact he's never set foot in Plough Lane, but he's set to get a look around on Wednesday morning and hopefully the competition will give him a chance to justify his position at the head of the betting for the big one.
Draper's Farloe Warhawk is a massive runner after he sluiced his trial, with other highly-regarded sorts such as Cuil Condor, Bubbly Rossie and Jaytee Swaby out to uphold big reputations"
Young Olympian is a topical runner and Paul Young's charge is quoted at 10-1 to reach the Puppy Derby final in this Olympic year, and 66-1 to win gold!
