Jimmy Fitzgerald's 10-year-old proved that he retains all his abilities when second at the same track on his seasonal re-appearance. He will appreciate this step up an trip but has the most to fear from bottom weight novice Toni's Tip. ——————————————————————————————————175—— Headlines 570 Totes 589 RARE INSIDER MAXIMUM SATURDAY p568/3 Diary Greyhounds Track Facts Headlines

Nigel Twiston-Davies' runner showed his promise by chasing home Barton at Sandown, but will have to be at his best.
