When it comes to greyhound-graded racing around the tracks there are six different types which are as follows:
All greyhound races in the UK comprise of a total of six runners/traps. Previously in the UK eight runners/traps were used on rare occasions but these races have now been phased out due to safety considerations.
When a dog becomes a non-runner due to injury or illness, a reserve can be substituted into the field but this doesn’t always happen if there is not a suitable reserve available. If a reserve comes into the field the letter ‘R’ is used on the racecard and the dog in question will also have an ‘R’ added to their racing jacket.
The trap and greyhound jacket colour coding is as follows:

Winning percentages for each trap tend to be extremely similar across all greyhound tracks. If you spot a track with a big difference in their winning trap percentages this could well be a bias that could be exploited for profit. Here are the winning percentages for the different traps at each registered greyhound track in 2022. Only full field races are considered and totals are rounded to the nearest full percentage:

Table below details the number of wins and winning percentages for outright favourites at each track in graded races in 2022:
Using all the information on this page should help you pick winners at greyhound racing as should following the tips of the best greyhound tipsters on OLBG.
It’s always good to try and work out which dog you think will lead the field at the first bend as statistically dogs that lead tend to have a better strike rate then dogs who tend to come from behind. Greyhound races often contain sections where the dogs come close together and some bumping is inevitable. The best place to be to avoid crowding and bumping is out in front so give extra credit to dogs who look likely to lead from the traps.
Compare the times of each dog in the field. Is there a young, improving puppy in the race? Or perhaps a dog who consistently wins in a certain grade of race?
It’s very rare now for greyhound tracks to have a large bias from one trap to another. Traditionally Trap 1 and Trap6 tended to have an advatage as they would only have one dog immediately beside them and hence have less chance of getting involved in any bumping or crowding.
The type of track may effect the likelihood of trap numbers having an advantage. For example, Crayford is a very sharp track (i.e. has a small circumference) so the inside traps have usually had a small edge as they may be less prone to crowding. At wider tracks (larger circumference) such as Towcester, the dogs have more room to spread out and any trap bias should be less noticeable.
The win statistics we have provided for each trap number since 2022 shows that there is as little as one or two percent difference between the winning percentages of each trap
In 2022, the outright favourite in greyhound graded racing won just under 32% of the time on average across all the tracks in the UK.
Full details for each track can be found above with the lowest percentage of winning favourites coming at Kinsley with 29.6% and the highest percentage coming at Central Park at a whopping 37.8%
