  • Which Greyhound events do we cover?

    We cover all tracks registered under the GBGB (Greyhound Board of Great Britain) and the major Greyhound races including -

    • Greyhound Derby - Wimbledon hosted the Greyhound Derby between 1985 until it's closure in 2016 with Towcester being announced as the new venue for the Greyhound showpiece. The first round heats usually take place in early May with the six remaining greyhounds after all the heats lining up for the Greyhound Derby Final staged on a Saturday night in early June.

     The Greyhound Derby tips from our knowledgeable Greyhound tipsters will be available to view on this page nearer the time of the event.

    • Greyhound St Leger - Wembley and then Wimbledon were previous venues for the Greyhound St Leger up until 2016 when Wimbledon closed. The latest and current host is Perry Barr in Birmingham and as with the horse racing version of the classic it's a contest for the 'stayers' over 710 metres. The 2 semi finals take place on Sunday 11 November 2018 with the first three finishers in each semi final progressing to the final on Saturday 17th November. Greyhound Trainer Mark Wallis has enjoyed plenty of St Leger success winning the trophy on five occasions since 2009 including the 2016 and 2017 renewals so keep an eye out for any of his contenders this year.

    • Coral Essex Vase - Run over a distance of 575 metres at Romford and recognised as one of the top 6 bend events in the Greyhound year.

The great Ballyregan Bob won the Essex Vase back in 1985 and still holds the track record for this distance today. Romford or Yarmouth based handlers have won the Coral Essex Vase in five of the previous six renewals.
