But the Barry Draper dog is chasing a hat-trick in top-grade action. He went quicker when collecting a brace of victories last time out so confidence will be very high.

We take a chance on the Next Best selection, Soberano Prince in the 8.40.

He almost made all in better company only five runs back and has since won. The Sean Davy greyhound continues to show terrific consistency and can make a bold bid if he goes well.

* Owlerton hosts a national greyhound auction tomorrow (Sunday, March 19) when owners and trainers from across the UK will be there.

On the day, trials will be run to establish the track performance and value of the greyhounds during the auction. Following the trials, the auction will take place in the Panorama Room where each dog will be displayed for purchase.

Greyhounds are purchased in guineas, with each guinea being equivalent to £1.05.

Dave Perry, general manager at Owlerton Greyhound Stadium, said: “This auction is a key event in the greyhound alendar, giving owners and trainers a brilliant opportunity to find their perfect dog.

“Owlerton is just one of five venues nationally hosting national greyhound auctions.”

Attendees will be able to purchase food and refreshments from both the snack and main bar throughout the day.
