GREYHOUNDS: Canny MADE It after all

SCOTS greyhound 'Canny Make It' failed to live up to her name when she romped to victory in a sprint race at Gretna on Friday night.

The two-year-old bitch from Frannie Hill of Hawick held on to take the honours as favourite with half a length advantage on the line.

She was followed home by 3/1 shot Macca Black, owned and trained by David Bowes from Cleator Moor.

Earlier, Dexter Clark’s fancied two-year-old Kirkbride greyhound Tic Tac had the edge over the same distance winning by .75 of a length from Frannie Hill’s other runner Snowie Dream.

There was a sensational finish over the 470 metres trip in the final race of the evening.

Davie Dunbar’s three-year-old Auchinleck bitch Granny appeared as if out of nowhere in the final straight.

She surged forward in a flying finish to win by almost three lengths from Kilmarnock trainer Brian Carson’s two-year-old bitch Bellfield.

Finally, racing fans can check on recent form by going online to the DnG24 Gretna racing archive at www.dng24.co.uk/?s=greyhounds
