Romford and Sunderland live on Racing Post Greyhound TV
Decent action for us to get stuck into this evening with a competitive graded card at Sunderland and a few open races at Romford – let’s crack on and find the winners!
The first race to highlight is the 8.02 sprint open race over the two bend 225 meter distance at Romford, the one that catches the eye is the youngster in T3 KILLOUGHTEEN PAT. The Maxine Locke trained son of Droopys Scolari has been running over the four bend trip since moving over from Ireland but finding the trip a little to far – now dropped back in distance he could be away and gone and not for catching. Ardera Euro (T1) is a capable sort but often misses the break from an inside draw. Millwards Ozil (T5) has decent course and distance form but is a little inconsistent at the traps.
It could be worth taking a chance on ERNESTAS SCOTT (T5) in the 8.34 open race over the six bend 575 meter trip – the son of Head Bound is a decent sort who has kept very good company in the past including making it through to the Laurels Semi Final at Belle Vue in December. Now tried over a six bend trip for only the second time he could be anything and with a clear run he will be a huge runner. Aclamon Josie (T4) ran well in defeat last week and will be looking to ping out and lead round – on the bunny she will be a danger to all. Captain Svendog (T1) stays well and has a chance if holding the rails pitch.
One of the best bets on the card is SUGAR RUSH from T3 in the 9.40 – the early paced railer is likely to ping out and should go clear of this field. Sugar Rush has kept very good company of late and will appreciate this slight ease tonight. The key to the race will be clearing Marazion Maeve (T1) into the first corner as that rival can trap well. Lewiss Girl (T4) stays well and will be a danger to all off the last bend if within striking distance.
Over at Sunderland look out for TRAPPER PADDY in the 9.32 A4 graded race – Paddy is becoming a little expensive to follow and often looks unlucky in defeat, clearly very pacey he often finds the first bend a little difficult to navigate with dogs either side. Tonight however he should clear T1 and grab the rails and lead round. The danger will be How Far Ronnie from T4. Big Hit Man (T6) is another that often flatters to deceive but is more than capable on a going day, will that be tonight though?
Moving onto Saturday – Crayford and Newcastle live on Racing Post Greyhound TV
It’s all graded at both tracks so it could be tricky finding the winners – one that caught the eye last week though is DRIVE HER ON and the youngster is out again from T2 in the A4 at 8.58. Blessed with early pace the daughter of Droopys Scolari will be looking to lead this field and kick a couple of lengths clear down the back straight, on the bunny she will be hard to beat. Viking Glen (T1) was top grade at Sunderland and would be the danger if turning close to the pace.
Over at Crayford HANDY HENRY will take all the beating in the top grade hurdle race at 10.11. The wide seed won well over course and distance last week and with a similar sectional he will be within striking distance at the third bend and could swoop late to claim the prize. Hello Navigator (T4) has a chance on the bunny – especally if there is trouble in behind. Lollylips (T5) has gone off the boil a little recently but would be a huge runner with a decent break.
