Reigning champion Taylors Sky has a live chance of joining the ranks of the likes of Westmead Hawk and Rapid Ranger when he takes his chance in the williamhill.com Greyhound Derby final on Saturday.
In an incident-packed semi-finals night, which saw main market protagionists Razldazl Jayfkay and Bubbly Phoenix depart the competition, Taylors Sky bagged himself a slot in the main event when second to Blonde Snapper, and is now 5-2 joint-favourite with the sponsors to retain his crown.
William Hill spokeswoman Lucy Rhodes said "Despite some shocks in the semis, it still looks a top-quality final with every dog deserving their place, and it will definitely be a night to savour".
NEWS ON OUR EXCLUSIVE NEW WAY TO BET - ONLY WITH WILLIAM HILL!
For the first time in williamhill.com Greyhound Derby history, the sponsors are offering an exclusive new way to bet on the final. The all-new ‘Yes/No' coupon allows punters to simply tick a box to predict the answers to six questions, with odds of 33/1 available for those who can predict all winning answers.
For example - ‘Will the winning time in the Greyhound Derby Final be 28.30 or faster?' - and - ‘In the Greyhound Derby Final will Taylors Sky beat Coolavanny Bert in a match bet?'
Similar versions of this bet have been implemented in horseracing, such as the Grand National, and many other sports, and have been a popular addition to the William Hill LBO offering.
Kate Miller, spokeswoman for William Hill, said "Our yes/no coupons are now produced on all major sporting events, and it seemed only fitting that the Derby - a jewel in Worldwide greyhound racing - had one too! It's a different type of bet, and we're keen to see how it is received".
The coupon will be available in all William Hill shops in the run-up to finals night on May 26th.
