Razldazl Jayfkay is still the fastest greyhound around Wimbledon despite this years Derby being considered the best in a long time.
I am going to put £20 on Razldazl Jayfkay to win the English Greyhound Derby because I know what he gets for breakfast. Jayfkay, a three-year-old brindle dog, eats so healthily he would put many Guardian readers to shame: he gets a potent mix of natural yogurt, Weetabix, milk, manuka honey and sardines.
Razdazl Jayfkay was all the rage in the 2011 Greyhound Derby, but Dolores Ruth’s speedster was knocked out at the quarter-final stages and he will be hoping for a better return in the 2012 Greyhound Derby.
He was simply majestic in the early rounds of last year’s competition with exquisite early pace, but having been drawn in the same heat as eventual winner Taylors Sky, Ruth’s star was unable to manufacture his way through the field and qualify for the semi-finals.
However, he has been sensational in his native Ireland and will be one of the leading contenders again and will spearhead Ruth’s strong battalion heading over from the Emerald Isle for the Derby.
His 28.22secs performance in last year’s competition showed that if he can ping the lids then he will be extremely tough to beat and he showed when winning the Dogger Dazzler Stakes at the end of March with a sublime time of 28.20secs showed that he was not one to underestimate.
A wide runner, he is sure to be helped by gaining the black and white striped jacket and if he can get on the bunny in the early rounds then he should qualify comfortably and will be a major force and that’s why is one of the leading names in the latest 2012 Greyhound Derby Betting.
