RPGTV Notebook - November 15

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

Burgess Vision (Oxford A2)
Chris Hamblin's dog inexperienced dog has been getting his act together as the penny has dropped and again ran well in defeat. Paced up well to lead despite a modest break but strong rivals turned close behind and he succumbed late on. Will only get better.
Exve Blaze (Romford A9)
David Mullins' charge has only managed the sole success back in July, but she is threatening to end the lean spell having finished close up. Lacking a yard of early pace, she kept on well enough in the second half and can gain reward for her persistency.
Go Bye Baby (Monmore A6)
Vicki Lea's bitch was slowly into stride before showing a burst of speed into the bend to give chase to the leader and eventual winner only to tie up slightly. She managed to hold on for second but a better break next time could see her take some catching.
Knockalton Power (Doncaster D3)
Debbie Calvert's dog went from A7 to A5 at Sunderland earlier in the year and has made the frame in both sprint races at his new surroundings. Pacing up well to the first turn, the move was countered by his kennelmate and he had to give second best.
Late Bolger (Towcester D1)
Heather Dimmock's pup made his UK debut in a hotly-contested top grade sprint but overcame a modest break to get up close home. The manner of the performance suggested that anything he does over two bends will be a bonus as he looks tailor-made for four.
Loco Sharky (Central Park D1)
Alfie Herbert has a nice team at the moment and this exciting speedster has a big future. Making up significant ground late on in this two-bend contest, this lightly raced two-year-old clearly possesses bundles of ability. Could end up in open class company eventually.
Luna Honey (Harlow D4)
Debbie Hurlock's bitch has managed one win from three starts but has yet to really master the art of trapping and again paid the price when shuffled back. However, she rallied up the home straight and there is every chance she will excel when switching to the standard 415m.
Move Madness (Crayford S8)
Found one too good when back over the 540m trip on his latest start, turning third but making no real impression until too late. Nick Carter's dog has won at a higher level, however, and will not need improve massively to get back on the scoresheet.
My Mate Hugsie (Hove A11)
Returning from a near three months' absence, Derek Knight's pup caught the eye in defeat. Crowded leaving the traps, she found herself in fifth out the second bend but got going along the back. Found more trouble between bends three and four but stayed on well for second.
Savana Lilypop (Henlow A2)
Jason Bloomfield's powerful and experienced bitch holds no secrets from the grader 57 races into her career, but she is clearly in great form and is worth keeping onside. Last early, she showed smart back-straight speed and also caught the eye coming home.
