Belle Vue begins to microchip.

BELLE VUE started the process of microchipping their graded strength this week. Racecourse vet Di Hodson dealt with around 30 runners before Wednesday's Bags meeting and the process is now on-going at the track, writes John Forbes.

Bob Rowe, the GRA's senior racing manager and RM in Manchester, said: "Everything went quite smoothly on Wednesday and we expect to chip around 50 dogs a week from now on.

"We should have all our runners done before it becomes compulsory on January 1 and I do not anticipate any problems.

"Following that, when new greyhounds come into the track we will look at getting them chipped at Monday trial sessions or before racing on certain nights.

"However, it's early days yet and I'll be talking to our trainers to see what will suit them best."
