Odds firmly stacked against Kincraig

Kincraig Rory, currently a 66/1 chance, is through to the quarter-finals of the William Hill £200,000 English Greyhound Derby at Wimbledon tomorrow night.

Owned by Belfast's Allen Agnew and renowned for his sprinting prowess at Drumbo, the blue dog faces a tough task after finishing third behind Jet Stream Duke and Blackrose Vic in Saturday's second round.

Rory suffered from third-bend crowding but did enough to qualify and now faces the likes of Powerful Tracker and Scottish Derby winner Holdem Spy, who picked his way skillfully through the pack from last to beat the fast-trapping Crokers Champ in his heat. The latter joins another Irish challenger, Laughil George, in that same quarter while Blackrose renews rivalry with Kincraig.

The Irish have seven qualifiers, including Metro Jack, Vanrooney and Fiery Splendour.
