RPGTV Notebook - August 30

Highlighting the greyhounds who have caught the eye of RPGTV analysts over the past seven days.

Charls Boy (Harlow A5)
Making his track debut having transferred from Yarmouth, Paul Crowson's dog was always playing second fiddle to the runaway leader but ran well to finish second. He has improved with each sighting and, having scored at similar level at his former base, is one to watch.
Dreamcatchernell (Henlow A8)
Jason Bloomfield's bitch missed her break and then took a bump, but showed really good early pace to get herself in front round the first bend. She was unfortunate to be followed round by two strong-running sorts who collared her late but it was a fine effort and bodes well.
Hyde Park Conan (Monmore D3)
Paul Sallis' veteran won a top grade sprint as recently as January but has slipped down the rankings and is not quite the force he was. However, he showed up much better latest despite a tricky draw in five and still has a race or two run him on this evidence.
Kaya Palazzo (Romford A5)
The losing run of David Mullins’ charge stretched to ten but he ran well in defeat again and seems to be rebounding from a flat spell. Showed good pace to turn second behind the winning favourite and a sharper exit may be all that is required to win next time.
Kid Dillon (Crayford A4)
Julie Luckhurst's dog was slowly away but took advantage of crowding outside to turn second. Then showed impressive pace to give chase to the leader, closing the gap to a neck at the winning line. Still learning at the track, the Enniscorthy winner should soon open his UK account.
Pocket Lulu (Hove A2)
Seasonal rest followed by a bout of kennel sickness has restricted her recent appearances but Seamus Cahill's bitch caught the eye latest. She had her ground taken early before staying on again on a very slow track which would not have suited. She is better than her current level.
Rathmeehan Queen (Central Park A4)
Dave Puddy's bitch has not won since May 2021 but has not had much racing in that period and is certainly knocking on the door following seasonal rest. Tapped for early pace latest, she closed on the leader but the winner is progressive and found extra in the latter stages.
Rolo Lotto (Doncaster B7)
A raw March 2021 pup still learning the ropes for Kelly Tobin, but her pace is there for all to see. Once again turning in arrears, she did not see daylight until late but ran a blinder to finish as close as she did. Well supported, losses should be quickly recovered.
Savana Jumbo (Towcester A3)
Dropped a massive hint that success is not too far away on what was his third competitive start at the track. Jason Bloomfield's strong-running type was slow into stride before showing plenty of all-round pace. Only beaten a short-head, he won have won in the very next stride.
