Greyhounds: Picture out of the frame

Some Picture's attempt to land greyhound racing's "Triple Crown" failed miserably when he trailed in last in the Irish Derby Final at Shelbourne Park, Dublin, on Saturday.

The race was won by the other British-trained runner, Toms The Best, who is trained by Nick Savva at Walthamstow.

Toms The Best, who beat Vintage Prince by a length, was returned at odds of 4-1 in winning only his first race of the six-round competition.

Some Picture, who had prevously won both the English and Scottish Derbys and stood to land a bonus of pounds 100,000 if successful in Ireland, was slowly away and was baulked at the second bend.
