Get the champagne on ice as Skater bids for a Golden double

The Golden Jacket Crayford's premier competition got underway last week and as ever it provided it's fair share of thrills and spills.

Blue Bee the ante-post favourite was eliminated from his heat, after trapping well he turned in a handy position and looked set to make a race winning move as the field entered the back straight for the first time, as excited punters watched on with baited breath.

However at Crayford things rarely pan out as you would expect and the unexpected happened again here, as Blue Bee stumbled, fell over, and was out of the competition in a flash, leaving those fans who had backed him to curse their luck.

The heat eventually went to ante-post second favourite Lorrys Options, but he took a long time to get going and may find a few to sharp in the later rounds and those looking at the best available greyhound betting should remember this.

Group Skater, the reigning champion, again showed his liking for the tight turns of the Kent track and after witnessing the performances from the opening round he can prove the one to beat. With Crayford being such a unique circuit it is not unusual to see greyhounds run-up sequences at the circuit. The way Group Skater glides around the bends is a joy to watch and it will take a big performance to lower his colours.
