WEROMBI trainer Andrew Bell has made Richmond his own during the first eight months of 2018, enjoying what looks to be an unassailable lead in the Richmond Trainers Premiership, sitting perched light years above his opposition with just 14 weeks remaining.

Claiming 34 winners and another 80 placings from his 272 starters to midway through September, Bell sits aloft of the Premiership table with a startling 578 points, well clear of Ron Alcock in second, his 23 winners and 27 placings raking in 310 points to date.

Bell – who claimed his 100th winner in the past 12 months courtesy of Milos Zarr Done’s Goulburn victory on Tuesday – also landed a winning double at last Saturday night’s Richmond program, with Oldmate Everest and Delly Vedova victorious in their respective events.

And that winning trend may well continue at this Wednesday’s program, with five runners engaged at the meeting, with every chance that premiership stranglehold will tighten even further.

In Richmond Greyhound Of The Year honours, Barb Spackman’s 400m record holder My Little Mate holds a lofty lead, her 16 wins at the circuit this year seeing her amass 172 points, clear of Bruce King’s Tamaar Tux on 100 points with the eight victories.
