When it comes to greyhound-graded racing around the tracks there are six different types which are as follows:

  • A Class (Standard races)
  • D Class (Sprint races)
  • S Class (Staying races)
  • M Class (Marathon races)
  • P Class (Puppy races)
  • H Class (Hurdle races)

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:

  • Trap 1 = Red
  • Trap 2 = Blue
  • Trap 3 = White
  • Trap 4 = Black
  • Trap 5 = Orange
  • Trap 6 = Black & White Stripes

Major Greyhound Races Covered:

  • Greyhound Derby– Wimbledon hosted the Greyhound Derby between 1985 and its closure in 2016 with Towcester being announced as the new venue for the Greyhound showpiece until 2018. Nottingham took over for 2019 and 2020 as the home of the Greyhound Derby as Towcester was temporarily closed. The big race was moved back to Towcester in 2021 and the latest renewal was won by Romeo Magico trained by Graham Holland from Ireland.
  • Greyhound St Leger – Wembley and then Wimbledon were previous venues for the Greyhound St Leger up until 2016 when Wimbledon closed. The latest and current host is Perry Barr in Birmingham and as with the horse racing version of the classic, it’s a contest for the ‘stayers’ over 710 metres. The Greyhound St Leger usually takes place in November, trainer Mark Wallis has enjoyed plenty of St Leger’s success winning the trophy on five occasions since 2009 including the 2016 and 2017 renewals so keep an eye out for any of his contenders this year.
  • Coral Essex Vase – Run over a distance of 575 metres at Romford and recognised as one of the top 6 bend events in the Greyhound year. The heats start usually towards the end of November with the final taking place on a Saturday night in early December. The great Ballyregan Bob won the Essex Vase back in 1985 and still holds the track record for this distance today. Romford or Yarmouth-based handlers have won the Coral Essex Vase in seven of the previous eleven renewals.
  • TV Trophy – Run over a variety of distances between 800 and 950 metres, depending on the track that has been chosen to hold the event that year. This event gained its name from being the only greyhound race that was shown on terrestrial tv. The race was televised by the BBC as part of their Sportsnight programme until 1996. The most famous winner of the TV Trophy was Scurlogue Champ who won the trophy in 1985 and 1986. Scurlogue Champ was famous for his slow starts in most of his races that meant he was giving his opponents a usually substantial advantage. Scurlogue became a huge crowd favourite because he would usually slice through the field with a power packed finishing burst of speed.

  • How do you pick a winner in a greyhound race?

    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?

  • What trap number wins the most in greyhound racing?

    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

  • Does the favourite have a good record in greyhound racing?

    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%

  • What type of bets can I place on greyhound racing?

    There are a large number of bets that can be placed on greyhound racing, both in shops/online and at each individual racetrack.

    • Win: The most straightforward of all greyhound bets: simply select the greyhound you feel will win the race.
    • Place: If you aren’t certain your selection will win your chosen race but you feel it will run well, you might want to consider a ‘place’ only bet. This bet means that you will see a return if your selection finishes first OR second. Do be aware that the odds for this type of bet do tend to be quite low so you may not make much profit.
    • Forecast: This bet requires you to correctly select the greyhounds that finish first and second in the correct order.
    • Tricast (also knows as ‘Trio’): This bet requires you to correctly select the greyhounds that finish first, second and third in the correct order.
    • Trap Challenge: A number of bookmakers offer odds on which trap number will have the most winners across one or more meetings.
    • Jackpot: Some tracks offer this bet where you have to corectly forecast the winner of a number of races
  • How do handicaps work in greyhound racing?

    Some greyhound tracks run handicap races involving dogs of differing abilities racing from staggered starts.
