Saturday 28 June 1997
Admittedly, little changed in the sport when Shanless Slippy, possibly the best greyhound to bounce off the sandtrack since Ballyregan Bob, sped to success in the race 12 months ago. But Some Picture again gives the industry something to cling to.
Trained by the softly spoken Charlie Lister, of Nottingham, tonight's 1-2 favourite is unbeaten in competition, having already pocketed the Eclipse Stakes and the Scottish Derby.
Inside the favourite is the Oaks winner, Annies Bullet. Her tendency to make a beeline for the rails at trap release looks sure to hinder He Knows and Stows Val.
Here's Andy looks the most likely source of an upset if he can gain a clear run, while the local dog, Charpaidon (backed at 2,000-1), needs more luck than a winning entry in the Lottery to land the event.
