Stranraer's Bunker runs a flyer

THERE was an impressive sprint victory for Stranraer flyer Bunker at Gretna greyhound racing on a wet and windy Friday night.

The two-year-old, which has tasted success at Halcrow Stadium several times, is owned and trained by former league footballer Buff Douglas.

Bunker finished by a comfortable 3.25 lengths winning margin from runner-up 5/2 shot Ecstasy in the 8.45 race.

The Stranraer kennels made it a double-up in the 9.15 race with Jetski coming home as 6/4 victor.

There was a West Cumbrian one-two in the 8.30 sprint trip.

Mo’s Nemo, a three-year-old dog from the Rickerby kennels at Workington, finished half a length in front of Drogba, owned and trained at the Hansel kennels, also in Workington.
