Greyhounds: Off the leash.

H I AWOKE groggily yesterday morning to hear on the news that ``Hoody's been banned from Bluewater.'' Strange, I thought, but I do know David's capable of putting anyone's back up. But what's worrying me is whether there'll be any more unfair bans imposed on the poor Hills PR guru. What will he do if Wimbledon follows suit?

I MALCOLM GLAZER was almost guaranteed the Man U shares he needed for the takeover when Alec Ferguson fell out with John Magnier over Rock Of Gibraltar and then proceeded to filch Liam Miller from Celtic. Because of all that there's a `get Fergie and the Man U board' mentality at Coolmore, and what better way than to burden them with the Yank? Coolmore man JP McManus, of course, is feted when he goes to the dogs because of his backing for the Irish Cup, the richest field event. H A WEST Midlands track recently commissioned a leading greyhound artist to paint six murals for its refurbished stadium. The commission, a substantial five-figure sum, was a godsend for the hardworking artist, who set about the work with much vigour. Imagine his dismay, then, with work 60 per cent completed, as he was informed this week that the paintings were no longer required and the commission cancelled without benefit. A painting-by-numbers set for the first reader to email Muttley with the name of this progressive track.
