Based on what I saw at Belle Vue Cashen Maureen reminded me of one of the greatest bitches I've had the pleasure of watching run whilst I've been in Greyhound racing. That bitch was called Farloe Verdict. No introduction needed. Maureen had the lot through the Oaks here at Belle Vue. Early, middle and stays the trip very strong. No danger in my mind Wallis improved her from Teds camp.
Only been in Junes kennel 5 minutes and already a win under her belt. Here's hoping she keeps up her current vain of form from what I witnessed at Belle Vue. Good luck to all members involved along with trainer June, Alison and her staff. Cashen Maureen a bitch of a machine.
WIMBLEDON, PLOUGH LANE STADIUM - TUESDAY 3rd MARCH 2015
18:38 - 480M
WIMBLEDON 480 STANDARD Div 3 480m
1.. Diesel Denziel - M H Fawsitt (Unattached) 2.. Metro Jack - - J L McCombe (Belle Vue) 3.. Bubbly Beauty (M) - P W Young (Romford) 4.. Dower Duke (M) - E A Gaskin (Romford) 5.. Brinkleys Queen (W) - A J Taylor (Wimbledon) 6.. Soviet Kenny (W) - J G Mullins (Yarmouth)
METRO JACK is out of the opening race at Wimbledon on Tuesday as June McCombe’s ex-Irish dog is not qualified. He is replaced by Kiel Razzle.
It is the second instance where he has been prevented from making a debut as a British-trained greyhound as he was also pulled out of a contest at Newcastle at the start of the month.
Following that he did have a three-runner qualifying trial, but by the time of Tuesday’s outing his race appearance at Towcester in December – which could have been used in lieu of another such workout – will be outside the eight-week period allowed.
So it appears Metro Jack will now need another 3 dog qualifying trial before he is allowed to race for his new owners.
What I can't understand is why the Racing Manager's at Newcastle and now Wimbledon did not tell the trainer when the dog was first entered?
A lot of red-tape these days and in my opinion the GBGB need to sort this problem out one way or the other because it quite clear trainers / racing managers are getting confused.
I would imagine now Metro Jack will be booked a 3 dog trial early next week and then hopefully he will return to race action.. NO WONDER OWNERS GET FED UP AND LEAVE THE SPORT WITH ALL THIS RED-TAPE....
