The nominations list for the Greyhounds of the Year list is sure to generate huge debate.

The major arguments will rage over the omission of Clares Rocket after a fabulous season. But there were four outstanding candidates and Clares Rocket was the one to lose out.

Top three for Dog of the Year are Droopys Roddick, Jaytee Jet and Rural Hawaii.

It's the first time since 1999, when Chart King was the winner, that the English Derby winner has been nominated.

The top three bitches are Holycross Leah, Sidarian Pearl and Witches Belle.
