Viking Jack 12/1 For Steel City Cup

I have made no secret of the fact that the Steel City Cup is the race above all others (even the Derby but for the £250k prize money), and Jack has a great chance this year. You can get on now at 12/1 with sponsors Betfred.

Jack ran at Sheffield a couple of weeks ago, he slipped coming out of the traps, not for the first time there, but made up so much ground, beaten only 2 lengths in a fast time. He showed us he was back to his best. Jack runs Sheffield exceptionally well, have a look at this….

We backed him that night, he made some good dogs look ordinary there. Of course with Jack he is liable to make a hash of things, but when he gets things right, he could do something special. Sheffield is his track!

We face some good dogs in this competition. It is one of the very best category one competitions of the year. Barry Draper will be all out to win this, the Sheffield trainer has some good dogs. Sussex Cup winner Ballymac Mossjoe is the one to beat, Glenpadden Rock also has a great chance. Making Paper for Diane Henry will be absolutely trained to the minute for this and of course you can never overlook the Parker dogs. Conna Trigger is a fast starting dog and a major player. These are all good dogs. But 12/1 about Jack is simply the wrong price. We have got stuck in.

He has some CV Jack. He got to the final last year BUT he had had a long campaign and was probably over the top by the final. We have not made that mistake this year, he is fresh as can be. He is bouncing!

There are two that go through to the semi from the heats and 3 from the two semi’s make the final that will be live on Sky Sports. Viking Jack is a great bet.

I tried to get £500 win with Coral, but they refused….

Only £100 offered at 12/1. I find that a bit poor. Betfred / Totesport sponsor the event and offered the same price so I made a call and they laid the rest! So I am on for £500 win at 12/1 and Jim has had his biggest bet of the year at £50 each way at 12/1. That tells you how we feel about his chances!


I grew up in Rotherham, just down the road and first visited Owlerton in 1984, at the age of 14. Not to watch dogs ironically but to see Sheffield Eagles, Rugby League. Jim, like me is a proud Yorkshireman. We would dearly love to win the Steel City Cup. We run at Sheffield regularly, the track is the best in the country and the people are superb. Greyhound folk are good folk, Yorkshire greyhound folk are second to none. We have a good laugh but the people there on a Tuesday know their dogs. This is our big one!

We have never had a better chance of winning The Steel City Cup, and we may never get a better chance! Come on Jack!
