RPGTV Notebook - September 13

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

Bockos Theo (Hove A11)
Making his third start for Belinda Green, the well-bred March 2021 pup ran better than an eventual fourth place might suggest. He was again slowly away before being forced wide and checking at the first bend but showed good middle pace before tiring on the run-in. Can only improve.
Cabra Kai (Monmore A2)
Off the track for nine months until his recent return to action, Paul Sallis' dog was well-supported but any chance he had was blown at the start. He showed good pace but the winner was gone and he ultimately had to settle for fourth. That market confidence was a positive sign.
Cons Sandy (Crayford A8)
Made it two wins in a row at the track, albeit over three months and eight races during a spell at Harlow apart. Returning to Tommy Batchelor, she put distance between herself and her rivals on the run to the first bend and was always in complete command afterwards.
Jura Go Buzz (Harlow A7)
Maurice Rice's youngster landed a Mullingar unraced contest on her debut and made it two wins from two starts with a first-time-up success in the UK. She faced only three rivals but could do no more than win in the impressive fashion she did, taking the lead before the first bend.
Kelva Moana (Henlow A3)
Jim Daly's in-form bitch made a very quick break and soon had a good lead only for a stronger rival to barge past off the last bend and take the spoils. Although very experienced elsewhere, this was only her fifth race at the track and she should be winning again soon.
Sound Structure (Central Park A2)
Recently made the switch from Hove to Barry O'Sullivan and had initially come up against some really classy sorts in open company. Having his first graded race at the track, he missed the break but showed superb pace in chasing the leader, the pair pulling clear.
Romeo Sportstar (Towcester A1)
Just a January 2021 youngster with five starts plus a couple of wins under his belt, Laurence Tuffin's charge was only moderately away in a hot contest and playing unlikely catch-up as a result. However, despite some signs of his inexperience, he clawed back a good deal of ground.
Winnie The Blue (Doncaster B5)
Had run into a rapid-improver on debut when sent off favourite and, although improving somewhat latest, her supporters ended up on the wrong side again. Jimmy Gaskin's youngster ran pretty well all the same, being denied racing room at a vital time off the second bend.
