RPGTV Notebook - December 20

Highlighting the greyhounds who have caught the eye of RPGTV analysts over the past seven days. Notebook returns on January 10.

Corrin Roger (Crayford A5)
Dave Lee trains this ex-Irish newcomer and he showed decent pace on a troubled debut. He was bumped at the first bend then tore down the back straight only to be stopped in his tracks at the third. With natural improvement and better fortune, he looks a surefire future winner.
Brennans Tuchel (Harlow A7)
Debbie Hurlock's dog made the switch from Sheffield to Harlow and has been finding his feet round the tighter track. He is starting to handle the bends more smoothly and clocked his best time yet when finishing second latest. Steadily improving, looks sure to go one better soon.
Euphoria (Romford A4)
Upgraded back to a level he is yet to master, Paul Young's charge went round second behind the well-supported winner having lost a little ground at the bend. Began to close in from the penultimate turn and was threatening to lay down a big challenge when forced to check on.
Jennifer Anne (Towcester A3)
Made her graded debut at the track for Michelle Brown in a hot contest for the level in freezing weather that was against wide runners. Caught the eye challenging her winning kennelmate but not finding the room to go inside, then checking to try outside. An unlucky loser.
Maree Poacher (Doncaster A1)
Debbie Calvert's charge had returned from a lay-off in top grade and, having only his second start back, went close and was unlucky to just be picked up by a stronger finisher on the night. This was certainly a jump forward and he should come on further for the run.
Vigorous Onya (Hove A7)
Having her fourth start for Richard Rees, she was moderately away and turned third. However, she showed impressive back straight pace to dispute the lead with the well-fancied odds on favourite and eventual winner. A better break will see her successful in the grade.
Vixons Dream (Monmore D3)
Brian Thompson's bitch was having just her second start since July when going off 4-7 favourite and after leading at the first bend would have been expected to go on and win. However, the slow conditions possibly counted against her and she went down by a short-head.
