GM – Friday 23rd March
Had a welcome day off yesterday.
Romford provides the action this evening.
Half the card is made up with maidens with lots of if, buts and maybes!
There not a betting medium. So we have limited betting opportunities.
Surely Ninja Penny will take advantage of a drop into maiden class after reaching the Essex Vase Final. Chop Chop Hope should win the Sprint Final after heat demolition last week. Both around 4/6 shots though!
My own Newinn Trump has incurred the wrath of the Romford Racing Manager who has put him in the top division of the 400 standard against Dower Forgold & Chop Chop Steve.
There were two other lesser quality 400 standard races he could have put Donald in!
He’s 12/1 on the early prices and that’s a fair assessment of the task he faces. Love it if he bolted in tho!
My first bet is a speculative one but it’s one I think is worth taking.
Mark Wallis Union Pride won her Marathon heat in good style and she has her draw as the sole wide with five railers inside her. Many multiples will feature Slippy Maska who will go off around evens in this final after her amazing run from the back last week. She may not get such a clear run this evening and may have obstacles in her way at the crucial time. The champ trainers dog may well be the one to take advantage.
My best bet of the evening is Pat Janssens Slick Sphinx.
He can lead these a merry dance drawn inside Glamorous Sharif and gain some consolation for being eliminated in the Essex Vase Semi where he found lots of trouble. The sharks were out early and took the 5/4 but he still rates a solid bet at a shade of odds on!
