Very grateful thanks to Roland Tingey for providing the photographs of each greyhound. The service he provides with his racing merchandise on ebay is always first class.

Hit the lid was a very convincing winner of the 88 final by five and a quarter lengths from Stouke Whisper, who had reached last years final only to finish last.
