Newcastle’s Track Championship team re-visit happy hunting ground

The final of this year’s BAGS Track Championship is upon us with six teams heading to Perry Barr for the pre-Christmas extravaganza.

You can catch all the action live at and on Sky Sports 2 this Wednesday afternoon.

And just to add a little extra spice to proceedings there’s also a cracking offer to enjoy too…

Money Back if your Greyhound finishes second in any BAGS Track Championship race!*

There are 10 races in total and the scoring system remains the same as at the regional group stage.

Points are scored 10, 7, 5, 3, 2 and 1 for first to sixth places and we’re all set for a mouth-watering spectacle.

Teams from Towcester, Newcastle, Monmore, Hall Green, Romford and Belle Vue are set to descend upon the Midlands and it’s the connections from the north-east who could be celebrating at the event’s conclusion.

The bookies can’t seem to split Towcester and Newcastle with both priced up at 13/8 to land the spoils.

However, given the latter’s dominant victory at this circuit back in 2012 it’s worth banking on a similar outcome in the latest edition.

Hot juvenile Bramble Robson (T4, 2.08) has impressed over the same distance at his home track and clocked a none too shabby 28.45sec, including a 3.55sec sectional, in a recent trial at Perry Barr.

He could get the Geordies off to a flyer while the likes of Some Woman (T1, 2.47) could also help build-up a strong points total in the opening stages.

Meanwhile, two-bend speed demon Bramble Bruno (T6, 4.08) is another to watch out for ahead of a potentially crucial last leg for Elegant Lady (T3, 5.07).

The action will be fast and furious and it’s a tough contest to call with former winners Monmore lively outsiders and the remaining three kennels each harbouring their own ambitions.

Make sure you’re tuned in, safe in the knowledge that if your selection finds one too good, you can get something back with Ladbrokes.

Plus, get 3/1 on either Belle Vue, Romford, Hall Green or Monmore winning the Track Championship!
