‘Tail’ of the tape

It’s a heavyweight clash between two of greyhound racing’s biggest stars.

Feral Franky vs Sennachie.

The people’s champ vs the country’s highest ranked sprinter. Speed vs Strength. New South Wales vs Victoria.

It has all the hallmarks of classic match race befitting the undercard of the world’s greatest greyhound race.

By the numbers there’s nothing between them, and the tab.com.au traders couldn’t split them when markets first opened on Tuesday opening them $1.90 each of two. Fans of ‘the Feral’ jumped on early, but Sennachie has also been well supported since.

Here’s a look at the ‘tail’ of the tape – let us know who you’ve got on Twitter or Facebook.
