150's into 33's on pp.

You'd think an operation like them would have auto displays on all their outrights instead of having customers going trying to find a needle in a haystack.

The 150ís must have been from a long time ago.
I decided 3 weeks ago that I would probably back him once I found out that he was definitely intended (as he had another potential target in Ireland at the same time) and he was a best priced 66/1 then.
He was still 66/1 best this morning.
I think he should be single figures.

If betting on this in a shop would you just put down 'Greyhounds - English Derby, Droopy's Davy' ?

A Greyhound Race is a test of speed. In a Derby other things come into it as itís 6 rounds long: luck, consistency, durability etc but at the end of the day the fastest dog has the best chance of winning.
Imo the Favís for the Derby should usually be in the 8/1 to 10/1 range as normally at the beginning 75% of the field have zero chance.

Droopys Davy is probably the fastest 4 bend dog in Ireland and as such had a major chance but as a young dog heís only starting to prove this in the last 3/4 weeks. The bookmakers have missed this and left his originally inflated price on display.
He runs in Irelandís second highest prize money race this Saturday where he will start a probable Odds On favorite. Then heíll go to England on Tuesday to trial before the Derby which starts in 2 weeks. In an ideal world heíd have had a longer gap between events.
For me he has incredible early gears and if he traps consistently nothing will live with him on the run to the first bend, early pace wins most races.
