Senior stoic as he splits with Begley.

PETERBOROUGH trainer Russell Senior confirmed yesterday that he and main owner Duncan Begley have parted company by mutual consent, writes Phil Donaldson.

Senior, who as recently as Wednesday was sending out Begley's prolific winner Diamond Cnoc to victory on Romford's Coronation Cup card before seeing their big-race favourite Rockview Sail take an unfortunate tumble in the feature event, said yesterday: "We agreed to go our separate ways after talking things through on Thursday, but it seems greyhound racing's jungle drums were banging straight away and there were lots of rumours flying round.

"I'm not going into details, but the best way of putting it is that my racing strength has taken a bit of a hit."

However, Senior was remaining upbeat as to the future after making such a bright start to 2012. "I'm a bit like a rubber ball," he added. "I'm the sort of person who will always bounce back. We've got some good dogs in the kennel still and some lovely pups coming through including a July 10 youngster who clocked 26.14sec at Peterborough the other day.

"At the end of the day you carry on as always - it doesn't matter if you're doing openrace dogs or A8 graders, as a trainer you still have to put the work in every day. That's what I'll be doing."
