I’m out for most of the afternoon today so you’ll have to lean on Greyhound Nuts, Facebook or @McnamaraMicheal for updates! In the mean time I’ll leave you with a tally of the Charity Fantasy Coursing picks in the Sporting Press this year.
In case you missed it, the great and good of the coursing world picked their top 8 dogs in Fantasy Coursing for the season with the overall winner receiving €1,000 donated to a charity of their choice.
Not surprisingly the Irish Cup runner-up Eshwary Leader led the way closely followed by Corn na Feile winner Needham Danger. Derby finalists With Grim Intent and Kyle Calvin were tied on six selections, while there were a host of dogs on five including Irish Cup winner Newinn Wonder. Those selected more than once included:
|With Grim Intent||6|
|Vale View Flyer||4|
|Black And White||2|
|Hi Black Jack||2|
|Rocks Of Bawn||2|
