Vics Target Richmond Friday Night

Geelong trainers David Geall and Jeff Britton are making the trek NSW for Friday night’s Group 2 Derby and Oaks Finals at Richmond.

Britton has Weblec Belle (pictured) drawn in the $45,900 Richmond Oaks, while Geall has Sir Charleton in the $45,900 Richmond Derby, both over the 535 metres.

Both greyhounds ran second in their heats last week.

“The Richmond Derby has been on my agenda for the last eight weeks,” said Geall. “Richmond is a track that suits stronger dogs, and with a clear run early I think Sir Charleton is a rough chance of winning, with Knight Sprite the one to beat.”

“It takes a very good dog to win the Richmond Derby.”

Geall’s former star Bo Frazier ran second in the 2008 Richmond Derby.
