An Ashford-based greyhound racing trainer is dreaming of landing the sport’s most valuable prize when the English Greyhound Derby returns to Towcester Racecourse.

Rab McNair has trained greyhounds with his wife Elizabeth for over four decades from their Kent base where they have reached the historic Derby Final on three occasions with Eden The Kid (2015, third), Farloe Trent (2014, sixth) and Caulry Fast (2007, sixth).

The couple stand their best chance of landing the £175,000 first prize this year, though, with kennel star FromPostToPillar, owned by the KSS Syndicate.

Aged two, ‘Postie’ has won 10 of his 13 races to date and already amassed more than £33,000 in prize money having landed the Cowley Puppy Collar at Oxford, the Coral Olympic at Hove and the ARC Kent Plate at Central Park.
