Corren Price trains Flying Four selection Gainstown BeaverPICTURE: STEVE NASH
Be eager to back Beaver for Puppy Derby spoils
GAINSTOWN BEAVER can open his British account at the second time of asking with victory in heat four of the RFS Puppy Derby over 480m at Wimbledon (9.15).
Corren Price's dog, a three time winner at Dundalk, had been expected to do so at Perry Barr first time up only to stumble at the start but subsequent trial work here has been excellent and he can make all.
VATICAN RAGNAR was the main beneficiary of Gainstown Beaver's misfortune at Perry Barr and Pat Rosney's dog can frank the form by following up that win in heat two at 8.42.
That was a marked improvement from the December 2012 dog compared to earlier appearances at Sheffield and he can clip his trial time here to prove too good for last month's course and distance winner Aimnfire.
The second William Hill St Leger quarter-final at 7.39 sees Touch Tackle bidding to bounce back from a troubled run last week but the value looks to be with WORSBORO PHANTOM.
Harry Crapper's dog is better than recent race formlines might suggest and his 41.68sec trial on October 15 is a good guide to his capabilities when he does secure a run.
BILLYS BULLET looks the pick of Dean Childs' trio in the third quarter-final at 7.54 on the basis that he can improve on his impressive full staying bow a week ago especially in terms of trapping.
Will trouble on the outside a real possibility here, a better exit from the traps can see the selection handy on the rails early and then strike for home on the final lap.
Hills are betting on the Flying Four and go: 5-1 no winners, 10-11 one winner, 15-8 two winners, 10-1 three winners and 180-1 that all four selections oblige.
