GREYHOUNDS: Resurgent Oxford are still adrift

First published in Sport

Despite a valiant effort from the home track, Oxford go into the final round of their BAGS Track Championship at Poole on Saturday, December 1 standing 39 points adrift of group favourites Swindon.

Oxford began like a house on fire with opening victories from Old Codger (Richard Baker), Yahoo Enda (Ron Bicknell) and Absinthe (Angie Kibble).

But former Oxford trainer Chris Stringer hit back with a double through Primo Impact and Primo Apollo to consolidate Swindon’s overall superiority.

Oxford had the last laugh, however, as Bicknell’s small kennel completed a double with Millbank Brennan in the final event, giving Oxford owners and trainers £1,000 in winning prize-money.

Result: Oxford 68 pts, Swindon 60, Poole 40.

Overall standings: Swindon 148, Oxford 109, Poole 79.
