RPGTV Notebook - May 24

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

Aarons Realta (Harlow D4)
Having his first sprint race after going one from nine over four bends, Paul Vincent's dog looked an unlucky loser. He was slow into stride before finding a wall of dogs in front of him at the first bend but managed to turn the bend unscathed and chased the winner hard.
Ballinakill Tip (Doncaster A6)
Making his debut, Ricky Overton's November 2020 pup was moderately away and crowded out of traps but showed electric early and led at the bend. He went clear along the back and remained so until turning for home where he weakened and was just caught. Has massive scope.
Bit View Rachael (Crayford A4)
An August 2020 pup having her seventh start for Joanne Atkins, she already has a couple of A5 wins to her credit. Clocking her fastest split to date, she flew to the first bend to make the corner in front but a strong runner turned behind and she was caught off the last.
Derramore Queen (Henlow IT)
Trained by Jason Bloomfield, for the second race in a row she led but found one too good. Her early pace is electric and will always put her in with a chance with not much needing to happen in behind for her to hold on. Can soon add to her ten career wins.
Moving Well (Central Park A3)
Having his first graded race for trainer Dan Brabon after a couple of open runs, he produced a promising effort. Decent early pace took him into a good position at the penultimate bend but he was crowded and bumped when challenging. Was only beaten just over a length.
Octagon Tom (Towcester D2)
Paul Braithwaite’s charge has had his issues with a couple of lengthy absences but has done well since his return with two wins in nine. He ran his best race yet at the level by breaking really well and showing speed to the bend only to get squeezed up by a rival inside.
Ragtime Arthur (Hove A1)
Theresa Dornan's 2021 Coral Regency runner-up lined up for his first-ever graded race and caught the eye staying on well for second place. Having just his third start of the year, he was stuck in a pocket on the inside around the first two turns but opened up nicely down the back.
Roll On Jack (Romford A8)
Paul Young's pup was having just his third race and showed early speed after being bumped from traps then went in pursuit of the eventual winner along the back, battling hard to the three-quarters mark. He was all out on the run for home and dropped away but has huge potential.
