Chicago to be a mas­sive hit

Midweek Sport - - ON THE NOSE -

TO­MOR­ROW is a bumper day for the sport of grey­hound rac­ing so that is what I’m con­cen­trat­ing on in the pur­suit of find­ing you more win­ners.

Start­ing at Hove I think I’ve found us a few solid bets. I’m Nap­ping Chicago in the 695m contest, I must con­fess I never ex­pected him to be a star over ex­tended dis­tances and thought the Puppy Derby fi­nal­ist was a gen­uine fourbend dog.

He stays though and con­nec­tions must be very ex­cited. The St Leger is not too far away and I’m sure Sea­mus Cahill will have one eye on that great prize, he can send out a mes­sage he’s ca­pa­ble of tak­ing ma­jor hon­ours with another fine per­for­mance here.

Droopys Bear is still a maiden but he’s too good to re­main that for long. I ex­pect him to score on his 7th at­tempt tonight for Dean Childs.

Rab and Liz McNair are giv­ing a UK de­but to Beam­ing Im­pact in the maiden sprint contest and I’m ex­pect­ing it to be a win­ning one. He’s a very good Ir­ish card and is a grey­hound to follow now here in the UK NAP - T2 Chicago 21.40 NB - T4 Droopys Bear 20.50 TRE­BLE - T3 Beam­ing Im­pact 20.34 A fan­tas­tic meet­ing which fea­tures the Pin Point Re­cruit­ment York­shire St Leger worth £8,000 to the win­ner at 21.19.

I ex­pect T4 Far­ley Rio to be on the podium col­lect­ing the cheque and mag­nif­i­cent trophy. He’s cur­rently a 5/2 shot with all ma­jor firms.

Also on the card is the Pin Point York­shire Maiden Derby fi­nal worth £1,000 to the win­ner at 21.04.

It looks a com­pet­i­tive race but I’m in­clined to think that a shock is pos­si­bly on the cards. I like the look of T5 Gym­star Jaguar at 4/1. Lough Messi was the head­line ‘Let’s Get Messi’ in The Week­end Sport and he duly obliged at odds of 9/4.

That made it eight win­ning head­lines on the bounce for Fri­day’s pa­per. So­cial me­dia’s been buzzing but the best feel­ing is know­ing you the read­ers are tak­ing a few quid off the en­emy ‘the book­mak­ers’ long may it con­tinue!

You can follow me on Twit­ter @Mick­Livesey I look for­ward to chat­ting dogs with you.
