The winners of the semi-finals will set the track on fire, in the Williamhill.com Northern Puppy Derby Finals  

Thursday’s meeting opened its trap doors to finalise the six hounds, who will compete against each other for the handsome prize money entailed with the Williamhill.com Northern Puppy Derby finals. The Grade OR chase covering 480 meters scheduled three semi-final rounds. The top two speedy winners from each round are placed in the final combat.

The first semi-final was expecting to see C Callow’s trap 1 racer Longwood Hawk as the purse winner, but J Davy’s 5/1 hound, Sevenup Bradders was fortunate enough to win the purse. The black and white dog commenced his chase through trap 6. Surging with a moderate speed, gradually he increased his pace and soon took the pointer position.

In 28.67 seconds J Davy’s hound Sevenup Bradders accomplished in getting hold of the wire.

Finishing second by a shoulder distance Longwood Hawk was placed in with 5/4 F odds, due to his lethargic pace he got crowded. He was not able to compete with Sevenup Bradders, Even though he kept his tempo swift while chasing the lure.

The second show of the Williamhill.com Northern Puppy Derby Semi-Final placed two ideal in the quest. The 5/2 J Unreal Timmy and Killieford Blaze, gave an eye catching performance, both hounds gave tough time to each other.

Fortunately it was K Macari’s chance to enjoy the glee, her two-year-old dog Unreal Timmy sustaining at the leader position gave a superb hit and confirmed his ownership for the purse, as well as his position in the finals.

Finishing first in 28.49 seconds, Unreal Timmy very impressively whitewashed J Bateson’s Killieford Blaze by 2 ¾ lengths. The white and black dog continuously ran swiftly, but his pace was not enough to compete with K Macari’s champ.

The Trap 1 racer Killieford Blaze took 28.71 seconds to conclude his quest.

The third and the last show of the Williamhill.com Northern Puppy Derby Semi-Final 3, made the 5/2 J Coin Case the star of the show. Trainer P Philpott’s black and white dog not only won the race and placed himself in the finals, but he also vanquished D Acott’s 5/2 J Drumcrow Dav.

Besides the purse winner M Wallis’s blue and brindle hound who managed to finish second by 2 lengths was Kinda True. The one-year-old hound took 29.44 seconds to wrap up his chase due to his sluggish pace.

The hound kept on running, but his pace was not enough to win the purse for trainer M Wallis.

The winners from each show have impressively placed themselves in the final round, trainers are all set to send their hounds in the combat to win the big prize.
