De Lahdedah has been made the new favourite to win the 2023 BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby after the sponsors trimmed his odds into 2/1 from 6/1.
Trained my Liam Dowling, De Lahdedah produced another sensational performance on Saturday night when winning his quarter final heat in 29.31. He pulled away from his rivals to win by seven lengths, with the Jennifer O’Donnell trained Seven Beach (33/1 from 40/1) grabbing second and the Murt Leahy trained Raha Mofo (remains 25/1) qualifying in third.

Bens Teddy was the winner of the second heat for trainer Pat Buckley with his odds shortening into 10/1 from 14/1 with BoyleSports to win the title on September 2nd. The son of Droopys Sydney – Beechgrove Bell was brilliant from trap one with a decent 29.39 recorded. He beat Bockos Crystal (remains 14/1) by four and a half lengths with the strong Threesixfive (40/1 from 50/1) grabbing third.
The Jennifer O’Donnell trained The Other Kobe produced the fastest sectionals of the competition so far when winning heat three. This full brother to last year’s winner Born Warrior took an almighty fast start wearing the red jacket with sectionals of 3.38 and 16.88 clocked. He went on to win in 29.15 by three lengths with BoyleSports Champion Stakes winner Trinity Junior and long-standing outright favourite Coolavanny Hoffa qualifying.
The Other Kobe has plummetted into 6/1 from 20/1 while the Peter Cronin trained Trinity Junior is 10/1 from 20/1. Coolavanny Hoffa has been eased out to 7/2 from 3/1, meaning he has lost his position at the top of the betting for the very first time.
The final heat went to the Matthew Harte trained Clonroosk Sydney who got up on the line to win by a head to Well Met, with Music Glideaway another neck back in third. Clonroosk clocked 29.55 and is now 20/1 from 33/1 to win the €125,000. Well Met is 14/1 from 25/1 for John Jones while the Patrick Guilfoyle trained Music Glideaway is 33/1 from 50/1.
Sarah Kinsella, spokesperson for BoyleSports said:
“Some big names were knocked out of the BoyleSports Irish Greyhound Derby on Saturday night, but the biggest losers in the market are still looming large for us. We now make De Lahdedah the favourite after sustained support with Hoffa eased for the first time since betting opened. It’s all to play for now!”
